Christine+Patrick’s Hellenic Center Wedding Video


This Coastal wedding took us to Gloucester MA where Christine+Patrick got married on the waters edge in a backyard ceremony. I only wish that was my backyard, I don’t think I’d ever leave the house!

The girls getting ready and reception took place at a fabulous new location for us, The Hellenic Center in Ipswich MA. It was a perfect compliment to the coastal ceremony, and plenty of room for everyone to let loose and “row the boat”. You’ll have to see this Hellenic Center wedding video to know what I mean there, but I’ll say that the reception was just a bit on the crazy side with a good mix of elegance and love. What a fun night! Hats off to Kevin on the music.

I am going to get use to more of these wonderful coastal weddings, and we can’t thank our couple enough for making us a part of their Hellenic Center Wedding.

Cara+Paul l Saratoga Polo Wedding


Up on the blog this morning we have a gorgeous set of Saratoga Polo wedding photos. Congrats to Cara+Paul who were married on a gorgeous fall day in Saratoga Springs, NY. Cara+Paul are huge music fans so we had a lot in common.

People will see the bandages in the photos, Paul fell and endured a bad break to his wrist, requiring surgery a week prior to the wedding. They just remained positive – it could have been so much worse, and they are fortunate that he didn’t sustain any worse injuries. There was nothing they could do, so they decided to make the best of it.  Paul had a more permanent cast put on the Monday following the wedding, and will have another surgery in a few weeks to remove the pins.  Always an adventure with them!

Cara gave her bridesmaid a bff charm to put on her bouquet. It’s from their childhood. So sweet!

I really liked this light for getting ready.

Where else would two music lovers do some portraits? SPAC! I sure do miss the summer concert season already.

They performed a “handfasting” ritual during the ceremony, where their hands were bound with a cord that they made. (Handfasting is a ritual common to many ancient cultures which symbolizes the couple being bound to a life of blessings, health and happiness. This is where the terms “giving ones hand in marriage” and “tying the knot” come from.)

Wouldn’t be a wedding w/out a bridesmaid wrapping to a 90’s song instead of speech.  :)

Robin+Paul’s Turning Stone Wedding Video


What a gorgeous day for this Turning Stone wedding video and I’m in love with the story of Robin+Paul. This wedding really comes off the heels of one of my absolute favorite weddings last year, Rochelle+Mike. There is always a sense that I have to deliver on the wedding video goods when I’m working with the same group of people for another wedding in the group, and I love that kind of challenge. As if we need any more motivation than we already have…. but any chance to up our game even further is ok with us!

Robin+Paul’s affection for one another comes right across the screen in this Turning Stone wedding video. I have to say, it was great to be film, great to see everyone again and great to finally be able to share this Turning Stone wedding video with you now.

Thank you for letting us take part in your very special day.

Aurora wedding photos l Megan+Greg


Served up fresh on tap tonight are some gorgeous Aurora wedding photos! Congrats to Megan+Greg who just had a spectacular day at the Inns of Aurora!

Megan had to have her appendix removed two days after the wedding – so we wanted to bump this feature up on the blog and get her feeling better.  When she was driving back to NYC to get their flight on Sunday after the wedding for their honeymoon, she realized something wasn’t right and they ended up going to the hospital so she could have surgery. Hopefully these gorgeous Aurora wedding photos help them re-live the better parts of the wedding weekend :) I’m especially in love with the wedding photos we captured because the light and weather was just PERFECT.  In keeping with the season, they decorated with gold glitter spray-painted pumpkins as well as mums planted in white and green pumpkins.

They had a vintage Porsche which was just awesome to photograph the Inns of Aurora as a backdrop.

Are there any doubts why we love Aurora weddings so much?!

Here at C+W we always shoot with two photographers and here is an example of why!

They named each table after one of the finger lakes, and their guest book was a drawing of the lakes in the area that they plan to frame.
