Heather and Micah's Wedding

By the end of the 2010 year, Shinay and I had the privilege of photographing a couple of good friends of ours getting married in Ithaca, New York.  We have known Heather and Micah since our past college days, learning Italian at RIT and even going abroad to Genoa, Italy together.  They are that lovely couple that fit together perfectly while maintaining their own individuality.  I remember hearing of Micah's infamous cycling trip across the country and of Heather's previous trip abroad to New Zealand.   Each of them brings a special and unique element together as a couple.  So it wasn't a tremendous surprise that Micah had proposed and Heather accepted.

Heather and Micah's wedding took place at the beautiful Ithaca Unitarian Church in downtown Ithaca, New York and later, they held a reception at a rustic and transformed old barn called the Lakewatch Inn.  We loved the winter decor and warm fireplace that evening.  Many of Heather and Micah's longtime friends and family came to celebrate.  There was much fun, laughter and dancing. 

Congratulazioni Heather e Micah!  I nostri migliori auguri e tanta felicit√†.
(Congratulations Heather and Micah!  Best wishes and much happiness.

A look back in 2010

I realize that today is January 2, 2011 and that the celebrated new year has come and gone but Shinay and I happened to consider our last wedding of the 2010 wedding season to be yesterday with Heather and Mitch at the Woodcliffe Inn and Spa in Victor, NY.  [The reason we count Heather and Mitch's wedding to be the last of our season was because we have had a year long relationship with the couple starting with preliminary meetings last year around this time!]

Now we can reflect back at 2010.  It's been a busy and full-filling year.  We've met some really great people, photographing amazing moments, having fun and doing what we absolutely love to do.  Whether we're helping our brides fix their trains, showing the guys how to put on a pair of cuff links or cutting a mean rug on the dance floor with friends and family, we're happy to know that we helped capture and create such wonderful memories.

And personally, I don't think I'll ever tire of the real and pure emotion on a wedding day.  Too many times I've been touched by hand written vows being read or parents giving proud embraces of love and care.  When family and friends gather to celebrate the spirit and love of two's just unique and real in every couple's own way.

Shinay and I have been very blessed to have met so many wonderful and true people.  And not just our brides and grooms!  We look back on this past year and will compare the years to come by our wonderful start in Something Blue Photography.  We wish all of our brides and grooms, family and friends and those that follow our work a happy, healthy and wonderful 2011!
