Well, what can I say? I don’t even know what to say, or where to begin, everything was so fantastic!
I do know that Marti and Steve are one of the funnest, and classiest couples I have had the pleasure to spend quality time with. They are the most considerate and friendly couple I have ever met. Everyone, and everything was thought of. Nothing could have been better for this amazing weekend wedding in the Finger Lakes. I will always look back on our time together with admiration and fondness. Honestly Marti and Steve, it was an honor, and a pleasure to spend the weekend together with you and your wonderful families.
I thought it might be nice to unveil the new look (large images) of my blog for your post, as a kind of thank you for everything. This is something I have wanted to do for a long time, but haven’t had the chance to refigure yet. I hope you like it, and look forward to feedback from everyone about it.
I’m exhausted and traveling as I type this, but I wanted to write it while the memories are still fresh. It would have been nice to do the fog shot by the lake, but I was kind of glad you didn’t call. We can do it another time, if you/we are up for it. I think the main reason I am so wiped out is because of the band ATLAS. Wow! These guys have it going on, big time! They blew the socks off everyone there! If you are ever fortunate enough to see them and you aren’t grooving, then you may not be breathing either. Seriously folks, these guys are the best I have ever heard! They no doubt take over the top spot as my number one recommendation. They are an interactive band coming off stage to sing and play in the audience. Steve’s Dad and brother even sat in with the horn section! Believe me, the next time I see Atlas cannot come soon enough.
It was also my first wedding at the magnificent Heron Hill Winery. I must tip my hat to their amazing event coordinator Doni McCann, and her incredible staff. The strange thing is they were practically invisible, until you needed something, and then they magically appeared as if they were reading your mind. Every detail was meticulously addressed with the utmost of care. The winery also has some of the most spectacular views anywhere. It was a pleasure to meet you and your team Doni, and I look forward to the next time.
My good friend Shai Eynav was able to join us as a second shooter. It is always a pleasure for us to work together, and the bride and groom are very fortunate when ever this is possible. Of course, Shai captured a bunch of wonderful photos, but I decided to use only my images for the slide show. Mainly because, after spending so much time together shooting the engagement session, wine tour, and rehearsal dinner, I felt a special connection to Marti, Steve and their families.
As always click on an image to see it larger. Oh wait, I don’t have to say that anymore, Yeah! The slideshow (click here) is about twelve minutes long so please kick back, relax, and relive the weekend with us.
Thanks again Marti, Steve, and your families for everything. I wish you much happiness, love and blessings, today and always.
Edit; I knew I was forgetting something. Marti is an excellent writer and has been keeping a blog at http://becominglefthanded.typepad.com/becoming_lefthanded/ on what it is like to be engaged. I have been following it from the very beginning and have enjoyed it immensely! She has changed it to http://www.becomingwritehanded.com/ since the wedding, and it is now about everything and anything she wants to write about. Please check it out and leave her some blog luv.
