Casa Larga wedding: Angela and Matt

My birthday usually falls around Labor day. For the past three-four years it has been super busy with two, sometimes three, weddings in one weekend. So I get to celebrate, while doing what I love, while EATING CAKE. Just sayin’.  Angela and Matt’s cake not only looked gorgeous, it was delicious!

We showed up at Brookwood Inn and were greeted with this amazing sight of the big train on a beautiful wedding dress.

Again, the DRESS!!!! Wow. Angela, you looked simply stunning in it.

We had a few minutes to spare so we staged an impromptu session on the stairs to show off the long train, and then one more with all the bridesmaids.

St. Mary’s in Canandaigua has always been one of my favorites to photograph wedding ceremonies in.

During the vows, I knew I’d need to stand off to the side. ( PSA: always hire an experienced professional 😛 )

The newlyweds rented the Sonnenberg Gardens for their bridal party shoot. Thank you thank you thank you, what a great experience and a feast for the eyes and nose!

We had a teensy bit of time left before the reception was set to start, so we walked around the Casa Larga building into the vineyards and got a few more pictures among the grapes.

Angela fell in love with these stairs at the Casa Larga tasting room after seeing Kelly and David’s wedding pictures I had blogged. I was happy to oblige her with a similar shot.

Adding to the sugar high (birthday present to self), I got a scoop of ice cream with sprinkles and hot fudge. YUM! One of my 2012 brides talked about getting an ice cream bar for her reception – I say, DO IT.

BONUS! Ha, you thought it was going to be another ring shot. Nope, not this time! Angela came by a few weeks after the wedding to pick up her image disc, and she brought her best friend along. Poor baby was too shy to play with my puppy Myla, but he posed for a few pictures from the safety of the newly minted Mrs. Moore’s legs. What a cutie pie face! I love how his doggie tag looks like a bow tie. Because, you know, bow ties are COOL.
