Erika + Brian- Mirbeau Inn & Spa, Skaneateles, NY

It’s a big question if KJ and I will photograph a wedding on our anniversary. If we do, we have to really like the couple we’re sharing our anniversary with. We had an extended Google Hangouts meeting with Erika + Brian, and instantly loved just how nerdy they were (you know, like us!) Their engagement session was a riot too. I really knew we made a good decision during then. They’re troopers!
They were so sweet, and had the DJ honor us and had everyone wish us a “Happy Anniversary” in the middle of the reception! That’s a huge benefit about working with your spouse, you get to share in everything. Work isn’t work, because your bestfriend is right along with you. You get to make decisions together, and you don’t miss those important days. Even when ‘working’ you celebrate each other and with the people you’re working ‘for.’
Cheers and love,
Emily + KJ

Private vow ceremony

The bride and groom wanted to share personal vows to each other, but didn’t want to express them in front of all their family and friends. So after the wedding ceremony they had their own miniature vow renewal.

Mirbeau Table Settings

I love the beautiful copper and green details on the tables. The dinner was intimate, so they had the tables arranged in a “U” shape. It felt like we were all eating together.

Mirbeau Receptions First Dance

After dinner, Erika and Brian shared their first dance. They aren’t the types to love to be in the center of attention, so it was short, but very sweet!

Funny Groomsman Flower Beard

There may or may not have been a flower beard made at some point.

Everyone Dance Mirbeau Receptions

Brian wanted to make sure everyone had a good time and danced!

At the end of the night, we like to play with back light.
