Lane Wedding – July 18, 2009

Kimm and Jerel Lane were married July 18th, 2009, at the Union Gables Bed and Breakfast in Saratoga Springs. Their wedding was beautiful with pops of bright green and bold flower colors that showed a lot of their fun young personality. Check out the fabulous cake by Angelina Tallmann! This was the bride’s favorite part of her wedding, and she loved the cake so much I actually had to “force” her to cut it. She thought it was so beautiful she didn’t want to eat it!

This event is truly an example of a wedding where a small budget went a very long way. They had a stunning Victorian mansion in downtown Saratoga, beautiful flowers and ambiance, great food and music, and all for a surprisingly modest cost. If you were to ask them they would tell you that they ended up with a lot more than they originally expected. I helped them find lots of creative ways to stretch each dollar and they got the wedding of their dreams on a budget they were comfortable with.

Kimm is a bride I will never forget, and I mean that with the most love and sincerity (look back to the post I put up the night of their wedding to see what I mean). Thanks to their photographer for taking such great pics! These photos are courtesy of Bob Donlon (www.bobdonlon.com).
