Club 86 - Finger Lakes Wedding | Adam + Christine

Club 86 - Finger Lakes Wedding | Adam + Christine

Married May 5th, 2018

It's been a few months since my last wedding and I'm so happy the wedding season is starting up again for me. I'm still pinching myself that I have nearly 30 weddings this year and 12 already set for 2019!!! Adam + Christine have been in touch with me for awhile now and having their wedding day finally arrive was bittersweet! We first met in 2016 at their venue, Club 86, when they booked me for their special day. I was living in the Finger Lakes at the time so seeing a new venue was really exciting.

The day started at Geneva on the Lake where the bridal party was getting ready. We ran into a couple bumps in the road, but luckily everything worked out in the end. I'm sure Christine will agree with me... BRIDES... be sure you are the first to get your hair and make-up done! If you have to have one done first, make-up will allow me to take photos of you getting your hair completed and having you feel your very best!!! Hair and make-up being completed on time sets everyone up for the flow of the day. I typically arrive 30 minutes before everything is finishing up so I can get my detail shots and some finishing touches of the hair and make-up artists doing their jobs. The one positive thing that saved us was having a first look planned for the couple. We lost some time taking pictures before their ceremony, BUT we still managed to get to the venue on time and do some bridal party/family portraits.

The rest of the day was smooth as can be and one of my favorite moments of the day was taking Adam + Christine to Seneca Lake for golden hour. There was an overcast, but those quiet moments were so special. I also met the sweetest videographer, Deb Standing, at their wedding... so if any couples need a recommendation, I finally have one I love! Thank you so much for choosing me to be a part of your wedding day, and I'm super happy to be going back to Club 86 in July for another wedding. Enjoy your photos!!!
