Wedding Boat Ride

Elegant Adirondack Whiteface Lodge Summer Wedding

“Fun, relaxed and happy” – those were the words that Cara and Andy used to describe how they wanted their wedding day to feel over a year ago when we first started to discuss their wedding in Lake Placid. If I were asked to pick three words today to describe how their wedding day actually felt I would answer: “Fun, relaxed and happy”: however, I would also throw in amazing : )

From the moment the first rays of sunlight appeared over the mountains on June 9th, it was a beautiful day in the Adirondacks. When I first met Cara and  Andy I saw how much they respect and love one another. I am truly thankful to serve and photograph couples that are truly meant to walk through this life together and Cara and Andy epitomize that relationship. You just want to be around them, and I think you can see in their photographs that they literally never stoped smiling the WHOLE day.

The day started when I met Cara at the River Rock Salon in Lake Placid for some fun “getting ready” pictures before heading  down the road to the Whiteface Lodge to spend some time with Andy and his groomsmen. I love this part of the day because it allows everyone to warm up to the idea of having their pictures taken. I find the extra time photographing before a wedding allows everyone to relax because they see that it is a fun experience having your picture taken by me : )

Prior to their wedding Ceremony at St. Agnes Church in Lake Placid, Cara and Andy did a first look at the Whiteface Lodge. When couples opt to take this time together, they often have more time to enjoy themselves after the ceremony. Cara and  Andy used their time to take an amazing boat ride from the Canoe Club. I love when my couples decide to do a “first look” because they enjoy so much more of their cocktail hour and reception! Plus they can squeeze in going to a fun location or doing something exciting like a boat ride on their wedding day : )

Weddings at the Whiteface Lodge are such a joy, especially when the weather is as perfect as it was for Cara and Andy. Friends and family enjoyed drinks, lawn games, live music by Schroon River String Band and the warm evening sun before dinner and the party really got started on the dance floor! These two know how to dance! Their reception was amazing with dancing well into the night by Lee Kyler of the Lake Placid DJ!

A huge Congratulations to Cara,  Andy and your families! This is just the start of so many amazing memories and adventures that you will have together : )
