Julie and Alex were married on a beautiful summer’s afternoon at the Golden Horseshoe Inn.  The sweet sounds of a string quartet drifted on the breeze as guests arrived for this beautiful wedding day, and helped themselves to a glass of lemonade on the porch.  Inside, the reception room glowed in the soft tones of blush and ivory, with charming centerpieces of pink and lavender dotting the tables.  Upstairs in the bridal suite, our gorgeous bride Julie was making her final preparations and sharing a strawberries and champagne toast with her bridesmaids.  Unbeknownst, perhaps, to the guests, our beautiful bride and her handsome groom had already shared a sweet first look and adventure to the mountain top, where we took full advantage of the brilliant blue sky, and came back with some beautiful images to treasure in the years to come.  After a romantic outdoor ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktail hour, and we had fun taking photos with the amazing ladies and gents of the bridal party and the family and friends who had traveled from near and far to share this special day.  A delicious catered dinner was followed by some very sweet toasts, a cake cutting, and plenty of dancing.  The sparkler send off was the perfect way to end this special day, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to create a beautiful wedding film for Julie and Alex in addition to their still photos.  I am so excited to share this little sneak peek from this truly magical wedding day…

Congratulations to the newlyweds!
