melissa + gary 12.14.13

the deeply in love melissa & gary were married in a blizzard! not some rinky dink snow shower, but an official storm with a name - electra! they were married at the most picturesque setting - highlands country club in ny and everything in sight was blanketed in snow. melissa wore a beautiful gown with lace shawl and had snow boots at the ready, she even had a family heirloom - a bear fur coat to keep her warm. her mother and sister wore fur coats and boots too - so cute! we braved the snow and got some cool {literally - 14 degrees} and quick {it was very wet snow} photos with some evergreens and a barn on the property. guests showed up in yellow school buses and the ceremony began.. the reception was filled with candles and lanterns and mini evergreens held table numbers and stems of the trees held menus in place.     
 guests were treated to handmade coaster sets and smore's made in the tavern's fireplace! oh and the most beautiful "un-iced" fruit covered cake! such a dreamy, winter wedding spent with a special couple.. just perfect timing for christmas! congrats m + g!
