Mr. & Mrs. Bertoni – Newark Valley, NY Wedding

My oh my, where to even begin!! I have been so excited to share this blog from the second I left Dan and Mia’s wedding. This day had me feeling all the good feels from the moment I arrived. The land that once was the location of their engagement photos had been transformed into a wedding venue that was beyond special to their hearts because it was here that they bought their first home together and have settled in this wonderful small town. 

As Mia and the girls finished getting ready, I began photographing Dan and his guys and I must say, these gentlemen clean up very nicely! Next it was ceremony time. As their closest friends and family members poured into their yard to witness these two lovely people say “I Do”, Luca, their super cute little boy, helped the groomsmen hand out programs. I’m pretty sure he did most of the work! Dan and the boys lined up in anticipation to see the breathtaking bride. Mia told me months ago that it had been her dream to arrive to the ceremony on a horse and I am beyond thrilled to say that on August 6th, 2017 her dream came true. Moments like these always remind me how grateful I am for having a camera in front of my face because I was having the hardest time keeping it together! It was one of the most magical things I had ever seen!! I can honestly say that I was speechless the whole day. 

We revisited a few spots where we did their engagement photos and they even left an area of tall grass untouched specifically for their wedding photos! Mia literally thought of EVERYTHING!! All of the planning, set up and details were hand done by Dan, Mia and their wedding party and it was flawless.

The night was filled with lots of Dave Matthew’s Band which meant I had to share a dance with the bride because our mutual deep love for this guy! The rest of the evening was filled with dancing, laughter, singing, hugs, a bonfire, and fireworks. I feel like I could write a book not only about how magical their wedding was but about the two of them and Luca. They have a love that is so rare and that everyone admires, especially me! Words can’t describe how happy, blessed and truly  honored I am to have been asked to photograph something so special. Congratulations Dan and Mia!

Now it’s time to view some of my favorite photographs from this special day! Leave some love for this incredible couple in the comments!
