I've known Kiki from my Salsa dancing circles for a few years now. She used to come to our socials, and many guys would've loved to court her, but it was Andrew who stole her heart and she disappeared from dancing when they first met. Instead I saw pictures of mountain hiking, especially winter mountain hiking....with Drew...posted frequently on Kiki's Facebook page. Ahhh, young love!!!!
Kiki asked me to photograph her wedding, which was an absolute delight and honor for me. We've met at a local Panera, and I've got to meet Andrew for the first time. Right away I knew why she was so smitten with this guy. He is like good bread - good looking, kind, easy going, a gentleman, and clearly appreciates Kiki and her beautiful bubbly personality.
The wedding took place on December 7, 2013 at Brant Lake, NY. Andrew and Kiki, being huge fans of winter and snow, were hoping for some snowflakes, especially after a prediction of some precipitation on a lake during 30 degrees temperature. But we weren't so lucky. We had a brilliant sunlight, a frozen lake, and were surrounded by pines. So ironically, their wedding images look like they were created in the summer. Let me assure you the day was anything but summery. It was freezing!!!! But look through the pictures - Kiki braved this cold in addition to north wind, with grace, beauty and elegance, to help me create the loveliest images of their magical day.
I adore these two, and one day hope they'll take me along on their hikes. For now, enjoy the slideshow and wish this fantastic couple many years of happiness.
