When Caitlin and Matt met up with me a year ago for their engagement session, I knew instantly we were a great match. They enthusiastically hiked up a mountain with several changes of clothes in tow and despite chilly temperatures and a strong breeze, maintained great attitudes.
Flash forward to a year later and there we were in the woods again for their first look. Matt, in slickly polished shoes and a handsome tux, stood in the middle of a creek bed. Caitlin (wisely wearing hiking boots under her gorgeous Sarah Seven wedding dress), carefully made her way down a steep embankment towards him.
We spent 45 minutes in those woods, hopping across moss-slick rocks, avoiding swirling pools of ice cold mountain water, slapping away bugs, and having the times of our lives. It was their wedding day and it was going to be a good one.
Upon our return to The Mountain House, chairs were carefully set up in rows (thanks to the meticulous planning of Elexis Gaines, aka The Placid Planner), overlooking the welcoming rolling hills of the Adirondacks. Thunder rumbled in the distance, clouds built up, and the ceremony went on.
Caitlin and Matt said their vows in front of their closest family and friends, under an arbor of locally grown flowers from Black Sheep Gardens, and in one of the best places in the world (in my opinion).
Take a peek and tell me this day just doesn't look like utter Adirondack-wedding perfection!
Also special thanks to Michelle Frederick for being my stellar second shooter that day. Some of these images are hers!
