A special local couple enjoyed a magical day with picture-perfect June weather at amazing local venues! The ceremony at beautiful St. Agnes Church, followed by reception at Intervale Base Lodge at Olympic Jumping Complex, with Good Guy Productions entertainment, Little Farmhouse Flowers, and Simply Gourmet Catering, unified this fairy-tale event. We look forward to sharing the photo album captured by Out of the Ordinary Photography. #LakePlacidWedding @ericewilsongoodguyproductions @SimplyGourmetLakePlacid @littlefarmhouseflowers @ootophoto
When working with a client recently, the bride asked me if she should consider a second shooter, since her wedding would have about 200 guests. I replied that the second shoot had less to do with covering a shot for all of the guests but instead for capturing moments at the wedding that are simultaneous. i.e., bride and groom getting ready in different places at the same time, the grooms face when the bride is coming down the aisle and the brides face at that same magic moment, detail shots of the set up of reception room before guests enter—at the same time family portraits are being taken.
In my experience, the second shooter is most critical until guests are seated for dinner, at that point events consolidate and it is easier to capture moments in one space as they unfold for one photographer.
A colleague and great photographer posted this great explanation recently.

A fun photo shoot with staff and we are all excited for a stellar spring summer and fall event season! Meet the key team members of Juniper Events & Design—all vastly experience coordinators and planners. Catherine, Kaysie and Kari (rolls off the tongue) — all have worked with Juniper Events & Design as planners in past seasons but are taking on a more involved role. Kaitlyn is a new team member and new to the Adirondacks from Rochester, NY and we are excited to welcome her to the all-star team. Connor will be returning for a third planning season after graduating college and Joseph Wilson returns for his second season. With this experienced and cohesive staff, there is little that can’t be done to make sure your every need is met on event day, or in advance. Read more about the team and meet us in photos. #weddingplanners #adirondackevents
A guest book you can use, display and cherish forever! Today guests are getting personal and creative when it comes to guest book ideas, signing and Adirondack Chair, a pair of antique skis, and a guest book quilt. This beautiful quilt was put together after a recent wedding. At the event, guest signed pre-cut quilt squares with a permanent fabric pen, later it was quilted together by a close family friend and served as the wedding gift to the couple. What a keepsake to treasure over. Another great idea or inspiration to break the traditional mold and do things your way for your day. #weddingquilt #guestbook

There was just enough snow on the ground to blanket the earth in white for this romantic early December wedding.
The event took place at the glorious St. Agnes Church and the Whiteface Lodge. Juniper Events & Design created a look for the Whiteface Lodge terrace with romantic candlelight dinner and then brightened up the Pines room with Ivory accents of drapery and furnishings and lighting to fit the bride’s vision. Stay tuned for full photo gallery of this dreamy wedding! #decemberwedding @whitefacelodge @mateovaleproductions
Empire State Winter Games opening ceremony, 1980 Rink Herb Brooks Arena, Lake Placid, NY. Great night kicking off the games as the stage manager and brushing shoulders with Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul and members of 2018 U.S. Olympic Team as they have a Lake Placid send-off to PyeongChang. #WinterOlympics #TeamUSA
What a lucky and wonderful wedding weekend of warm fall breezes and still bright fall color. Colorful floral accents by Trillium Florist — love the color combo and bouquet -- and ceremony tree rental from East Branch Organics.
Honestly one of the most seamless weddings ever with the super timely bride and groom, accommodating and respectful weddingq party and family, portraits ran like clockwork and were fun too! Incredible food and fun from another five-star service at the Ausable Club. Great way to round out the Fall wedding season. #fallwedding
First, look at the Ausable River – perfect for a whitewater-guide groom. Then up the Whiteface, Lake Placid gondola with 200+ guests (well done Whiteface staff!) for a summit ceremony on look-out deck. Thank you weather gods for turning rain and no visibility into blue-bird skies within an hour of go time. Lastly, down to the Base Lodge to party the night away. The beautiful bride and her African dance troupe Soma Beats and Wulaba West African Drumming ensemble kicked off the night right with a celebration of love dance and got the whole crowd on the dance floor at 5:30 pm. High spirits! High vibration! Special night!!
Transformation of space with the help of Placid Productions for lighting, Kelsey and Emily and staff of Whiteface for set up, and Antonia and Price Chopper Supermarkets for amazing centerpieces. #mountaintopwedding

Extraordinary day all around at a private home wedding outside of Paul Smiths, NY. Wonderful collaboration with Fosters' Tents, Simply Gourmet Catering (which was simply amazing), and Trillium Florist accents that really stood out. Mother of bride made family recipe cake. DJ Andy Pratt brought the entertainment. Slate blue linen matched the landscape backdrops of blue sky and pond. Can't wait to see the special photos captured by YM Photography! #bluewhitewedding @YMPhotography @fosterstents @SimplyGourmetLakePlacid
