Genegantslet Golf Course Wedding | Rob + Alyzza

I don’t even know where to start with this couple! Rob and Alyzza’s love for one another, happiness, and joy of life projects onto to everyone around them.  It was such a beautiful day at Genegantslet Golf Course in Greene, NY celebrating them.

The energy, excitement, love and happiness was felt from the moment we walked into where the girls were getting ready. There were so many beautiful moments throughout their perfect wedding day I couldn’t be happier for them.

Thank you so much for inviting us in so warmly into your perfect wedding day.  Congratulations again and we wish you a lifetime of happiness. xo

MKJ Farm Wedding | James + Trisha

James, a father, working full time on the night shift and Trisha, a mother, working full time at a hospital had very little time to go out and potentially meet their soulmate.  Nowadays we hear it all the time and see it on TV the modern day of meeting people through online.  And once in a while a true love story comes out of it! After many conversations online, James and Trisha decided to meet in person for a drink, which turned into a full night of laughter and an immediate connection.

A few years and a proposal later James and Trisha said their vows to one another in front of their family and friends.  James still makes Trisha smile, and always has her laughing, it is absolutely beautiful to see.

It was such an amazing day in Deanboro, NY at MKJ Farm celebrating the marriage of James + Trisha.  Thank you so much for having us and inviting us into your beautiful wedding day.

Is an Unplugged Wedding Right for You?

We are heading into wedding season, and I couldn’t be more excited to document one of the most defining moments in the lives of all my 2015 brides + grooms.  I wanted to write this blog to share the interesting concept of an unplugged wedding with both current and potential clients.

What is an unplugged wedding? An unplugged wedding is a wedding where guests do not use cameras, cell phones, or tablets during the ceremony.  Sometimes this is extended to the reception too. The Pew Reasearch Center says as of January 2014

90% of American adults have a cell phone

58% of American adults have a smartphone

32% of American adults own an e-reader

42% of American adults own a tablet computer

According to these statistics, almost everyone at your wedding will have a device of some sort in their possession.  I see it,  and hear stories all the time from other photographers of that one uncle, friend, or other family member who stands in the aisle, or get’s up on the alter, and blocks the view of the photographer. You have invested a lot of time and money into selecting the photographer you feel will best capture your day.  It would be a shame for them to not be able to capture your entrance, the first kiss, or any other moment because of someone else’s flash or physically tainting the image.

Benefits of an unplugged wedding There are a few benefits of an unplugged wedding. The first is not having anyone blocking, interrupting, or distorting images that your photographer is trying to take.  Another is that it allows your guests to really enjoy this beautiful time in your lives.  They will not be distracted about trying to get the perfect image, they will only be worried about enjoying the moment. The final and maybe greatest benefit of an unplugged wedding is that when you are at the alter, having your first dance, cutting your cake you can see the faces of your loved ones enjoying the moments, instead of a phone, camera, or tablet in front of their faces.  Also when you receive your wedding images from your photographer, your guests faces won’t be blocked by their devices.

How to inform and ask your guests to put down or leave their devices home? There are many ways to inform your guests about an unplugged wedding.  If you have a wedding website, you can start there, you can also do it on the programs, a sign, or ask the officiant to inform the guests. I created a board on my PINTEREST PAGE. Feel free to check it out! There are ideas on how to inform your guests and example images.

Your family and friends are just really excited to share this moment with you and everyone and want to capture the memory for themselves and others. If your guests want to view your wedding day photos you can refer them to your photographers webpage as most photographers post sneak peeks within days and blog your wedding day within weeks.  You may also share your online gallery when it is delivered!

I believe that both the couple and the guests benefit from an unplugged wedding.  It can be a break from the “always connected” world that we live in.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions for suggestions. I would love to hear from you! Cylinda B
