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.
The boys looked handsome too. I dig the gingham.
First look time.
Saratoga Springs NY offers such beautiful backdrops for wedding photos
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.)
Yummy sunset at the Saratoga Polo Association
Wouldn’t be a wedding w/out a bridesmaid wrapping to a 90’s song instead of speech. :)
