Lakeside Wedding at Bristol Harbour Resort, Canandaigua NY ♥ Caitlin + John

Caitlin and John’s lakeside wedding at the Bristol Harbour Resort, in Canandaigua was the kind that fairy tales are made of. Caitlin reached out to us after being referred from clients who had recently gotten married. The irony was, that same client also referred us to another friend named Kaitlyn who also was getting married on the same day. After a few enjoyable chats with her, however, Caitlin got to us first. Kaitlyn, if you’re out there reading this, we hope that your wedding day was fabulous! Soon afterward, we got the pleasure of meeting John when we had their engagement session, by the same breath-taking lake. We really enjoyed spending the afternoon with them, getting to know them, and watching them kill a bottle of wine in record time. If you missed seeing their engagement portraits, you can look back and enjoy them here. Caitlin got ready in one of the adorable, little cottages on site at the resort, with fantastic views overlooking the lake. John spent his preparation time in one of the rustic rooms in the hotel. The gift of two fragrant, snow-white gladiola arrangements were sent to Caitlin on the morning of the wedding, which made the perfect addition to their reception decor. One of the most precious moments for a mother is being a part of their daughter’s wedding day. These radiant ladies looked so stunning, these portraits could not be passed up, before we headed over for the first look. We were taking bets (no, not really) on whether John would shed some tears…

Engagement Session at Canandaigua Lake, NY ♥ Caitlin + John

Caitlin and John’s engagement session at Canandaigua Lake kicked off a great weekend for us! We had no idea just how amazing the views would be when we got there, so we were pretty excited as we neared the lake. We started their session at a private family lake cottage, where a short trail made way to a quiet little creek. We took some photographs inside the creek bed, and by the colorful blooms of the black-eyed Susans, before we had to chase the light with a short drive to the beach. After cracking open a bottle of wine, and and enjoying the spectacular blue water and skies, Caitlin and John hopped in the canoe for a few more photographs to capture the beauty that surrounded us. After a few glasses (or a bottle) of wine, we try to be careful what we jokingly suggest to our couples. Though sometimes it makes for humorous photographs like the one of John almost throwing Caitlin into the water! *Note: No brides-to-be were harmed, or took unexpected dips into the lake during this engagement session. Following our session, Caitlin and John invited us to join them for some grub. We kicked back with some seriously delicious Chicken Wing Pizza at Pontillo’s, and chatted for a bit before heading out. Guys, to say you were fun to work with, would be an understatement! We’re so glad you decided to have your session at the lake, it couldn’t have been more perfect! Thank you for treating us to dinner, it was a pleasure getting extra…
