A few weeks ago I photographed Audrey & Karina's ADK wedding at the Golden Arrowhead Lakeside Resort in Lake Placid. Right off the main road, I felt transported to place of peace and tranquility once stepping into the lobby and seeing the site of Mirror Lake in front of me.
This wedding was very special in a few ways. One, it was a very small guest list, only about 30 or so people. Everyone was specially chosen to be a part of this event. Next, it was one involving the right to marry to one you love. Audrey & Karina were unable to get married in their home state, as they are a same-sex couple. This journey to New York to tie the knot has a much deeper intent to them, and it made it extra special to be a part of.
The details were impeccable, from the dachshund decor (they have 3 back in NC), to the Instamax Polaroid camera (big fans) , to the Adirondack Chair-topped wedding cake made by Cake Placid (ha! such a sucker for puns over here!), to Audrey & Karina's hand tailored suits, shirts, wooden bow-ties, and cuff links. These two have style.
The love and acceptance that was shared by everyone in attendance was such beautiful reminder of love for love's sake. In a time where so much is up in the air, so many things happening all the time, this was a genuine reminder that love can help to guide us to fight for what and who ever we believe in.
