Charissa & Matthew Tonkin
Saranac Lake, New York. September 15, 2018
I started the day with a gorgeous drive through the Adirondack Mountains. As I arrived, I was escorted via boat to the other side of the lake, where the ladies were getting ready. We got off to an amazing start with bohemian inspired bridal portraits and then ventured back to the venue.
When we got back, most of the guests had arrived and everyone was excited to watch the lakeside ceremony. They began with a private “first touch” and live music from their friends, while the gentlemen escorted the ladies to the alter. Then the sun came out and provided the most beautiful light I could of asked for. After a picture perfect ceremony, we did the family portraits and then got back to the shore just in time for some romantic sunset portraits.
The wedding party kicked things off with exciting grand entrances and then Charissa & Matt took the spotlight with a choreographed first dance. After a night full of live music, dancing and laughing with their favorite people, Dad put on a huge firework display to end the night properly.
