Now, that wedding season has come to its graceful end, we are finally able to take a breath and look back through all of the beautiful wedding days we had the honor of taking part in. Emily and Ross’s day was particularly beautiful. It was sunny, but crisp and the leaves were in their final stretch of pale green and throughout the whole day you could feel nothing but a relaxed and easy going vibe.
It was about ten years ago in high school when Ross and Emily first met and it is easy to see why they were drawn to one another. Ross’s jovial personality matched with Emily’s amazing smile was infectious every time we were around them. And their laid back nature on their wedding day made for the most perfect atmosphere. The day began at golden hour at the always stunning Riverdale Manor where the large trees towered over us and the calm stream trickled by. Emily wowed us all in her Maggie Sottero gown, but Ross’s first reaction as he saw his bride coming towards him said it all. After the ceremony we had the pleasure of photographing their dear families and witnessing the different generations come together in support of this sweet, sweet couple. And the sweetness did not end there. The support of their siblings and friends in their bridal party was humbling (and they kept us in stitches ALL day!). The smiles flowed over to our favorite time of the wedding day – getting to photograph the bride and groom! It never ceases to amaze us as we witness a newly married couple taking a few moments of quiet and calm together. As we made our way into the reception, Mixed Up DJ’s had the dance music going and we knew the party was officially on!
Thank you, Ross and Emily, for becoming part of the Mallory McClure Photography family and for allowing us to be a part of this amazing journey you have set out on! And thank you to all of the wonderful friendors we had the honor of working with. You truly were all a dream!
