today’s love story:
Kerry & Jason’s Lake George Wedding – NY Wedding Photographer
and all the magical moments that made it
The Inn at Erlowest in Lake George is an amazing venue for a winter wedding. It is beautiful inside and out, overlooking the Lake, and the staff was absolutely wonderful – friendly, accommodating, attentive. Here’s Kerry & Jason’s Inn at Erlowest wedding preview!
Kerry and Jason wanted to get ready privately…So I got to hang with the junior bridesmaids and their moms as they got ready. This might be my new favorite. It was such a blast…the girls (and Quinn!) were awesome – braids, selfies and the perfect lip were a few of my favorite moments with these lovely ladies. And how handsome is Q?!
Kerry and Jason’s #1 priority was spending time with their family, but we were able to sneak out for a few minutes and take some beautiful pictures of the two of them before the ceremony…can you guess which is their signature pose? I think they called it the “Huggy-bear”.
Are you kidding me? I hope this ends up as a giant canvas in their home…otherwise, it may end up as a giant canvas in mine!
And then it was time to get married…Jason waits patiently for his bride.
Jason’s grandfather married them in front of 30 of their favorite people.
And then it was time to celebrate. And eat. Ahhhmazing food.
I loved the dining room. Perfectly set for 30, including a setting for myself and Ben. How thoughtful of them to invite us to join in their celebration!
They had the best signature drink – the Vesper, in honor of James Bond. For anyone who likes gin, but not tonic, this is a must-try.
Once everyone was seated for dinner, there were lots of conversation, laughs and toasts. As the newbies to the family, we got to hear their stories, and I was struck by the love stories. Jason’s grandparents met when they were 13 & 16. And his brother and sister-in-law started dating in middle school! It was pretty remarkable.
And the food. Ohhhh the food. It was as delicious as it was beautiful.
And while the sun went down on Lake George, the 5-course dinner came to an end and the dance party began! Some of the moves featured below: “punch it out” and “the matrix”
Jason cut the BIGGEST slice of wedding cake I’ve ever seen.
I love this moment between the two of them. Its as if there’s no one else in the room.
There will be more, you don’t want to miss the day-after Outhouse Race on the Lake! But before that, I have to send a sincere thank you to Erin, Kerry’s sister. She runs The Stevens Estate in Andover (a beautiful Massachusetts estate wedding venue!) and is an absolutely wonderful person. I’m so thrilled that she called me about photographing her sister’s wedding. There’s no other way I’d rather have started 2014. And to Jason & Kerry, thank you for inviting us in. We were honored to be a part of your day.
It was a fantastic weekend with a phenomenal group of people.
