There are clients and then there are CLIENTS. These two were so much fun to work with that I wish they lived locally so I could work with them time and time again. They chose the lakeside home of a family friend in Brant Lake, NY to coordinate and host their wedding. Every detail, from the handmade barn wood arbor to the personalized fans and the chris-craft wooden boat entrance to the ceremony, went perfectly together to create an amazing event. They had a classic wooden boat for their formal portraits which was just AH-MAZ-ING!

Howard and Edilene decided to have an intimate ceremony at The Fern Lodge in Chestertown, NY for close family and friends while Howard was home on leave. I was lucky enough to have the day available to capture a small piece of their love story. It always kills me when there are happy tears… and there were plenty during this ceremony. I may have been a little misty-eyed.
