You may remember that colorific carnival engagement shoot I shared with you last Friday from Joe Elario Photography. Well oh happy day, we have Jamie and Eamon's gorgeous wedding too, and they sure did it up with their modern vintage style. A gorgeous neutral color palette and Jamie's birdcage veil combined with stately architecture and an antique car take us back a generation or two.
I was so beyond thrilled when JP sent over this wedding; there is something heartfelt about starting with the engagement session and seeing it through to the I Do's. As it turns out, these high school sweethearts were married ten years to the day of their first date. Super swoon! They are so adorable and we are happy to able to bring you their version of a perfect day!
We begin our journey at Franklin Plaza in Troy, NY. Gorgeous lines, roman style columns and arched window make for a stunning backdrop.
Photographer JP: We arrived at the hotel where the ladies were getting ready. Sitting in a stool in her robe was Jamie getting some final touches from Flawless by Tina. So we shot a ton of getting ready stuff then it was out to the mean streets of Troy (kidding) for some portraits with Jamie and the girls. These photos are some of my favorite images yet!
Be still my peony loving heart - seriously, I believe the best wedding flower ever! Delicate and full all at the same time, this blush bouquet, designed by JP's wife, Miss Fleurtacious Designs, is a perfect complement to Jamie's fitted mermaid wedding gown. I applaud her choice of a bold lip color and lovely birdcage veil to complete her modern vintage wedding look.
The ceremony took place St. Augustine's Catholic Church in Troy, NY, which was filled with family and friends. JP really took advantage of the church's architectural structures - arches, ceiling, lines - to create a sense depth and scale.
JP: We loved shooting in the church because of the light, and the AC. Eamon told me he was a little nervous too. Jamie seemed pretty cool even when “here comes the bride” started playing. Once they were pronounced husband and wife it was off to some awesome spots in downtown Troy. We captured some incredible photos and then had them off to Franklin Plaza where this bride and groom attended their cocktail hour.
A perfect sliver of light falls at exactly the right moment. I love how it illuminates her veil!
And another one peeks through the window!
JP: The party started off right in the hands the Mike Emery’s New York Players where there’s no stopping that force. The result, a packed dance floor all night long. Both Jamie and Eamon were on that dance floor all night long except when they were goofing in the Elario Photo Booth!
