Hayloft on the Arch Wedding | Vernon Center, NY
I tell all my wedding couples that unless I'm dead,
I'll be at your wedding.
That's not just a platitude.
Trust me when I say,
I truly mean it.
This past Friday I had a medical emergency.
I was scared and sad,
but also so worried about disappointing Stephanie and Jim.
I was scheduled to shoot their wedding reception
the following day (yesterday).
I can't fully express in words just how kind
and beautiful this couple is!
I have no doubt in my mind
that if I had needed emergency surgery,
they would have been gracious
Of course, I had last minute
replacement photographers in place,
but thankfully I was able to push through
and do the job.
Although, they never once made it feel like work.
For 8 hours, I was able to escape
any issues I was dealing with
and smile and laugh with these two incredible humans.
Every single staff member at the venue,
the DJ, the kitchen staff, the wait staff
everyone said the same thing...
"This is our absolute favorite couple EVER!"
Is there an antonym for Bridezilla?
That would be Stephanie.
So laid back, so easy to work with.
She didn't stress about rain
or table settings or if a hair was out of place.
And Jim, well he just wanted to make Stephanie happy.
Over and over again I heard him say
"I can't stop smiling."
Well no need my friend.
Stephanie and Jim
your love is so obvious and so genuine.
I wish you every happiness in this world...forever!
Thank you for sharing a part of yourselves with me.
Thank you to
Mary Beatty Buttolph
who all so generously offered
to step in for me if I couldn't make it.
You are all so talented and I admire your work so much!
Big thanks to my assistant Jamie
who always comes through,
but who also sat with me for hours
and hours and HOURS in the hospital.
Shout out to DJ Knoway with Black Tie Entertainment.
You rock!! Literally.
Lastly, I want to mention Alicia at Hayloft on the Arch.
This lady has her act together!
She will legit watch the forecast.
At the first sign of rain
she comes to pick up the couple in a golf cart
if they are on the other side of the property.
I've been shooting for nine years
and that was a first.
Props to you and your ridiculously
I know you're excited,
so here's your first look at
Mr. and Mrs. Fredenburg!!
