Liz and Michael – Bristol Harbour Wedding Photography, Canandaigua NY
From the second you meet Liz and Michael, you can tell how head-over-heels they are for each other. They light up every room they walk into, and are determined to spend the rest of their lives making each other smile. The best part of it all? They were SO damn pumped to get married and celebrate the start of this next chapter with everyone they love the most.
I heard Liz’s laugh long before I got to the door, and it didn’t stop until the party ended. Instead of the traditional bridal party, Liz chose to have her family — both the one she was born with, and the one she was marrying into — stand up with her as she married her love. They surrounded her with love as they prepared for Liz and Michael’s wedding day.
Even the spectacular view of Lake Canandaigua couldn’t hold a candle to how blown away Michael was to see Liz as a bride. They could not take their eyes off of each other, and beamed their way through their portrait session. Their joy was infectious, and all of their loved ones joined in.
After a sentimental ceremony (seriously, who kisses their almost-wife’s hands right before they say their vows?!), we made our way into their reception to continue the celebration. And oh, a celebration it was. From emotional toasts (with mom and dad as the matron of honor/best man, how perfect!), a spectacular first dance, a cake hand-made by Liz’s family, spectacular dance moves, and never-ending happiness. It was truly a night to remember, and there could not have been a better celebration of a wonderful couple.
Liz and Michael – Congratulations again! May this only be the start of your laughter together. Thank you for being such a joy to work with, it was truly an honor to document your wedding day.
