Mr. and Mrs. McKee were married at The Inn at Erlowest on September 5, 2010. The ceremony was held down on the point, a small piece of land on their property that juts out to the water and showcases the property’s beautiful views of Lake George and the surrounding mountains. Tonya and Ryan met in high school and since have settled in California so the planning for this wedding was done long distance and the event itself was a wonderful collection of close family and reunions with good friends. The bride chose shades of pink for her big day, captured in the bridesmaids’ dresses, the flowers, the accent lighting in the ballroom, and of course her fabulous magenta shoes. I don’t usually have a lot to say about the guy’s attire but I have to take a minute and mention the tux Ryan wore that day. Guys, take the extra time and money and go buy yourself a custom fit tuxedo. Ryan did and he looked amazing. The ones you rent from the shops just don’t have the same fit as one that has been custom tailored for you. He definitely looked super schnazzy but nothing could outshine the beauty of this bride. Tonya was simply radiant on her wedding day, and the smile on both of their faces throughout the day truly lit of the whole room.
As always I was joined by some fantastic vendors on this event. The photographer team of Erin and Jason of Gallery 9 North really did an outstanding job capturing the beauty of the day in these pictures. This was my first time working with them and they really impressed me. Also at this wedding was DJ Andy Pratt (who also was the master behind the uplighting and the accent lights later that night), the ever fabulous flower powers at Renaissance Floral Design, Saratoga Photobooth Company, All Season Trio who provided the string music for the ceremony, and of course my girl Haleigh Muskopf at The Inn at Erlowest.
This was a super fun wedding that was down to earth and completely amazing. Tonya and Ryan have such a genuine love for each other and watching them smile at each other all night was really touching. I loved working with these two and wish them a lifetime of happiness together! Not like they need it, though. 😉
