Lake George is one of my favorite places to photograph a wedding! In planning their wedding day Cira and Cory made sure to include some outstanding Adirondack elements. Their bridal prep, ceremony and cocktail hour were all held at the amazing Villa Nirvana, a picturesque private residence located on the Sagamore island. After their beautiful ceremony overlooking Lake George I got to join the couple for a cruise on the lake in Estrella (a pristine Hacker-Craft whose name is Spanish for Shooting Star). After their cocktail hour in the grotto of Villa Nirvana, Cira and Cory (and their guests) walked down the waterfront to the Sagamore doc and boarded The Adirondac for their dinner cruise touring the narrows of Lake George. The night was capped off with spectacular fireworks that lit up not only the Adirondack and the Sagamore resort but extended to the peaks surrounding Lake George.
This was a spectacular wedding and our team was privileged to have been able to join some amazing vendors throughout the day, starting with the day of coordinator Wendy Lawrence (Fine Affairs) who could be seen running in the background to ensure everything went off without a hitch. On Thai (Surroundings Floral Studio) did an amazing job on the flowers for the bridal party as well as throughout the event. The talented Rich Ortiz did a great combination of his own original acoustic sets while mixing it up with some DJ tunes. And what Adirondack event could be topped off better then with fireworks from Alonzo.
