Erin & Matt has planned on having an extravagant wedding down on Long Island, but unfortunately the COVID-19 pandemic put a stop to that. Rather than letting dispare get the better of these two, they planned a small family trip up to their favorite vacation spot of gorgeous Lake George for an intimate wedding ceremony. Joined by their siblings (and their families) as well as their parents, the bride and groom were married on the top balcony at the Sagamore Resort with the fantastic Adirondack peaks and the pristine Lake George vistas as their backdrop.

Dave started his two hours with this great couple by photographing the groom as he got ready in one of the condos on the grounds of the Sagamore.  After getting a few quick pics of Matt getting ready with his family Dave headed over to the main building to join Erin with her Mom and two sisters to photograph bridal prep.  After a very touching father first look Dave joined Matt and the rest of the family up on the balcony for their ceremony!

After an intimate ceremony officiated by Erin’s brother-in-law, the bridal couple and their family went down to the Sagamore docks for family photos, followed by couple wedding portraits.  The beautiful golden hour that we have come accustomed to at the Sagamore did not disappoint!!

“It was really nice to get to join Erin and Matt in their intimate wedding ceremony / celebration.  I know this was not what they had originally planned, but clearly they had a great time and made the best of the situation; at the end of the day, these two started their “happy ever after,” pandemic or not!” – Dave Bigler
