Bre & Rich's Intimate Adirondack Elopement, Saratoga Springs, NY
I'm sort of obsessed with Bre and Rich. It's no big deal. Just kind of in love with them. It's fine.
When Bre reached out to me via Instagram, I already knew who she was because we'd been mutuals since I first moved to Saratoga in 2016. She told me that she had been following my work for a while and was ready to just go for it and elope with her longtime love Rich, and was I available 3 weeks from today? You guys already know the answer to that type of question: YES, YES, 100% YES.
The goal was a few hours of cute, laid-back ceremony and mingling coverage, gorgeous portraits, lots of cute detail shots of all the perfect little wedding items Bre had picked out, and just generally a low-pressure, love-oriented day. We got it, we got it all.
At this stunning private ADK residence, Bre and Rich gathered with their immediate families and two best friends (with the rest of their guests attending via Zoom) and tied the knot in front of a gorgeous rustic mantle.
This wedding was my first of 2021, and after a really crazy and uncertain year it was really nice to be able to document a very small, very relaxed intimate elopement as the kick-off for a 32 wedding year. I had this very grounding feeling of I am so happy to be exactly where I am at this moment because the laid-back elopement vibes, Adirondack decor, and sincere emotion of such a long awaited union is exactly my vibe. We love it. We love to say the word vibe multiple times in a paragraph. Vibe vibe vibe.
Take a look at these images and let me know if they give you all the feels - they give me all the feels!
Congratulations to Bre & Rich, enjoy every second of newlywed life & THANK YOU so much for having me.
