John & Bailey’s late June wedding at the Inn at Erlowest was one for the books – and I’m not just saying that because Bailey is an English teacher. It’s hard for me to put into words just how much of a blast it was to spend their wedding day with them. Have you ever met anyone who just personified a hug? That is the best way I can describe Bailey and John. They both wear their hearts on their sleeve, and it was such a truly a perfect day on Lake George filled with magic, laughs and surprises. There were so many genuine moments of joy to capture that it was infectious. Did I happy-cry at their wedding? Well, I didn’t NOT happy-cry, I’ll just say that.
Aside from being generally awesome and extremely well loved people individually, John and Bailey are even more electric as a couple. Yes, they are beautiful. Yes, they are kind. Yes, they are driven. But what is even more important is – THEY ARE SO DANG FUN! I mean, they even broke into a high-energy salsa dance halfway through their first dance as husband and wife that literally blew everyones minds (please note the reactions in the background in those pictures). You will find a lot of dance floor photos in this blog because they really brought the dance. THEY. BROUGHT. IT. I’m sorry I ever doubted John’s dancing abilities. Please consider this my public apology. Bailey chose the perfect dress to dance in, she was out there twirling like the dang queen that she is!
This wedding was the perfect blend of love, joy, family and future. I can’t wait to see what adventure awaits Bailey and John (because lord knows I fully instagram stalked their incredible world tour honeymoon) , and I’m so happy I could be a part of their very first day as husband and wife. Thank you for giving me the gift of your friendship and the very best first dance to photograph in my career thus far.
Cheers to the new Mr. & Mrs, Bailey & John! ❤
