Casey Wedding – November 29, 2008

This was one of my favorite weddings and certainly one of my favorite couples. I spent a year working with the Caseys in putting together this big event. They got married at The Full Moon Resort deep in the Catskill Mountains and went with a Harvest Moon theme. Wedding at the Full Moon are three day wedding weekends where family and friends stay right on property from Friday to Sunday. It makes for a really special time for everyone, and a wonderful experience for the lucky bride and groom. All of these pictures were taken by Michael Grace-Martin. He really captured the beauty of this wedding and this couple.
Their rehearsal was on Friday night. That’s me in the middle taking charge! πŸ™‚ The whole bridal party was such a fun – and cooperative! – group.

Rehearsal dinner in the cafe area of the main house. The bride and groom were gracious enough to invite me to share this time with them. πŸ™‚

I had so much fun working with these guys, and I’m so glad that all of their hard work paid off in this absolutely gorgeous wedding. My time with some couples ends at the end of their reception, but with these guys I know we’ll be seeing more of each other for years to come.

In addition to Michael Grace-Martin (http://wedding.mgm-photography.com) I also had the pleasure to work with my FAVORITE DJ, Greg Frasier. I didn’t put any of the dancing pictures up here but it’s not because there weren’t great ones to choose from! Greg rocked this wedding, and he kept the party going all night. A true professional and all around great guy, he’s truly a pleasure to work with. Also involved in this wedding was Rich Deitlien from Capital Videography. Rich is a stand up guy who gets in there without getting in the way. I can’t wait to see their video! Her dress was from Immortal Beloved in Saratoga and they did a wonderful job for her. Hair and makeup was done by Alayne and her partner from Make Me Fabulous. She looked so beautiful!

Here are just a few more pictures that I get a kick out of. I am never in any of the film from my weddings but I seemed to pop up a few times in this one. Just because I never get to do this I wanted to throw a couple pictures of me in action! πŸ™‚

The pic to the left is me helping the bride put her veil back in after it pulled out, picture to the right is me checking on the timing of the cake cutting with the head wait person. And the picture of me above was taken by the maid of honor – it’s me and the beautiful bride!

    Shannon- What a wonderful post — but I could expect nothing else coming from you! Looking back at all of this, I know I couldn't have handled it all without you… so many logistics!

    To all the potential brides & grooms reading this: stop your search! You need a wedding planner and you NEED to hire Shannon πŸ™‚
