Aimee and Steve had a beautiful Longfellows wedding in Saratoga Springs, NY. We were so excited to shoot Aimee and Steve’s wedding not only because we love Saratoga weddings but also because Longfellows is only 10 minutes from our house which is a pretty good commute if you ask me. We arrived at Longfellows while Joanna and Angela from Lipstick n’ Lashes were getting the girls ready with hair and makeup for the wedding day to come. Luckily after an April filled with grey skies and cold weather we finally got a sunny, beautiful day perfect for a wedding. Once Aimee was dressed and ready it was time to head over to Yaddo Gardens for the first look. There are a lot of brides who are choosing to do their first look in a completely separate place to get even more great pictures and Yaddo is the perfect place for that. If you’ve never seen the garden, you should totally check it out. It’s a truly beautiful place. After the first look and the couples pictures the bridal party joined us for some pictures in the garden as well.
Once we finished with pictures it was time to head over to Longfellows to get married! As the sun was setting Aimee and Steve said their vows surrounded by friends and family. Once the ceremony was done it was time to get ready for an awesome reception. Longfellows didn’t disappoint with some amazing food for dinner (it is a pretty fabulous restaurant as well so this wasn’t surprising) and of course once everyone was fed the dance floor was rockin’. There was a short break for their after dark session and then the dance floor was packed right up until the end. We are so excited to show you these images, as Aimee and Steve are some of the most expressive people we have ever had the pleasure of working with. Just wait till you see all the joy and laughter we are about to show you!
The rooms at Longfellows are great for the getting ready pictures.
Remember what we said about all the joy and laughter?
Aimee was a truly stunning bride.
First look time at Yaddo!
These two are so adorable. Their love was painted all over their faces all day.
The gardens at Yaddo always make for a spectacular setting for wedding photos in Saratoga Springs. It’s one of our favorite places for Saratoga weddings for sure. You can probably see why!
A few more sunset shots back at Longfellows before their ceremony.
Time for their ceremony by the Pond inside Longfellows.
The strong sunset light streaming into the ceremony space made for a really unique situation for the ceremony photos, but it allowed us to think a little out of the box and get some more artistic ceremony shots than normal!
I love this little look Steve is giving Aimee.
Completey opposite reactions during a toast. I love it!
We will finish off with just a few images from their after dark session with us.
Aimee and Steve, thank you so much for allowing us to capture your story. It really was an honor. For anyone else planning a Longfellows wedding, get in touch! We would love to capture your stories as well!
