What a fantastic day we had with Tracey & Jason! I mean seriously, it was supposed to rain & thunder all day with very high wind warnings... Instead we had one of the most beautiful deep blue skies I have seen in a really long time!
I met up with Tracey and her crew early in the morning to start documenting the day. We went through hair & make-up and laughed a lot! There were a few hiccups in the planning but in the end it wasn't about what didn't work out, it was all about what did! Also the simple fact that they were getting married!! We went to a friends house to do some formal pictures of the girls. But first I took some portraits of Tracey and her father doing a first look which was really sweet!
We headed over to Bond's Lake in Lewiston, NY after getting ready to start the ceremony. It really was quite beautiful. It included stones with little messages to the bride and groom, a tribute with balloons to those who have been lost but never forgotten and some singing! It was pretty windy during the ceremony but it didn't stop us. It made for some unforgettable moments.
After the ceremony we stayed right on the overlook and took some stunning portraits of the two of them. Then we went across the street by the lake and into the woods to take a few more. The two of them had us rolling in laughter and you could really see how much they love and care for each other! I'm pretty sure Tracey went back to the venue with a few miscellaneous tree branches stuck in her dress!
We wrapped up the formals and headed back in for intro's, speeches, cake, and dancing! It was a party for sure. Everyone was dancing and the shots were rolling out! It was a truly intimate, lovely reception and we had so much fun!
It was such a great day and I hope you enjoyed reading along today!
Tracey & Jason, I wish you two the best in love, life and family for many, many years to come! LIVE.LAUGH.PHOTO. <3 Ariel
