Katie & Andrew may have met by fate, as Katie was only visiting upstate New York for a short time when Andrew walked into her life. Three years later the pair was engaged & planning for their upcoming wedding. The couple plans to wed on May 4th, 2013, which also happens to be the date of the Kentucky Derby, which will spur the theme of their big day! A horse track engagement session only seemed appropriate, so the couple spent the day at at a privately-owned thoroughbred stable that borders the Saratoga track. Some advice for other couples preparing for their engagement shoots?

What better way to infuse your autumn nuptials with a splash of fall flavor than by adding notes of pumpkin spice. The muted reds, orange & browns are the perfect hues for late autumn "I dos." Aside from a stunning color palette, the rich flavors will surely warm hearts & bellies during a chilly weather celebration.

Nikki & Jason's fall-inspired wedding was both festive & fun! The couple gave a nod to the season in almost every detail of the day. From their foliage wedding invites, to their adorable leaf-shaped placeholders & even the wooden heart-shaped cuff links that Jason wore, there was no shortage of autumn in the air. The wedding day color scheme was full of gorgeous shades of red, orange & yellow. We love seasonal soirees that draw inspiration from what's outside!

We alway draw inspiration from unique places & one-of-a-kind ideas, so we were completely in love with Mariel & Jamie's unique engagement session with Mabyn Ludke Photography. Amidst large-scale art installments at the Stone Quarry Art Park in Cazenovia, NY, the couple shared a stunning backdrop to showcase their love. Writing their wedding day in a book & incorporating it into the photographs was a fun & playful take on traditional Save the Dates!

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month we are feeling truly inspired by a color palette bursting with shades of pink. Bold & vibrant fuchsia hues will leave you feeling refreshed, or add more subtle tones of blush & coral for an uplifting air. We love incorporating the tone into tabletops & sweet treats, as well as in bouquets & bridesmaids dresses for an extra pop of color. Get tickled pink for delightful decor & a good cause!
