Wendy and Chris thank you so much for choosing me as your Wagner Vineyards Wedding photographer. My day began with at Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel with Wendy and a room full of bridesmaids preparing for the big day ahead. Wendy was all smiles while making sure her bridal party’s hair and make-up were running on time while the other ladies lounged and relaxed. It was a gorgeous bright blue warm sunny day and the wedding was outdoors so I was anxious and looking forward to some beautiful ceremony photos with the vineyard and lake as the bride and groom’s backdrop. After the girls were ready to make their way to Wagner Vineyards we headed down to the lobby of the hotel where Wendy had her first look with her father. As soon as the last guest was seated at the vineyard the groomsmen were ushered to the arbor where Chris stood eagerly and nervously awaiting Wendy. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful in every sense of the word and there were some very emotional and moving speeches and moments balanced out with some good hearty laughs along the way. Following the ceremony we took a few photos in the Wagner Vineyards wine cellars and then joined the rest of the guests for cocktail hour and then introductions. During dinner service I snagged Wendy and Chris and we headed down to the vines to take advantage of the evening sunset for some fun couples photos. When we returned the party was just beginning to move indoors to the dance floor. The reception was really awesome – so many fun, energetic and loving people celebrating together right up until the couple’s sparkler send off. Chris and Wendy you are such a strong beautiful couple, thank you so much for sharing your day and for the privilege of documenting your Wagner Vineyards wedding.
