Jon and Morgan

One bride. One groom. Two fathers. Two mothers. Two sisters. And one tiny baby. Jon and Morgan’s wedding is the smallest I have ever photographed. And on a snowy February day up the North Fork it was also one of the loveliest.

One might think with such a small group, on a February day, with snow falling and temperatures in the 30’s, that a wedding would ruined by too many things going wrong. That was not the case here. The fresh falling snow made for some nice moments. The small group made the whole day feel intimate and closely connected. A white dress and a white tux in the snow was just fun. And as we wrapped things up the sun broke free and I got one photo, the very last, with some gorgeous light.
