Ever meet two people who feel like actual rays of sunshine? Andrea and Greg are exactly the kind of people who immediately take you in and embrace you like family. I can say for certain everyone who witnessed their day felt so lucky to know two wonderful people. It was an honor to capture their elegant boho wedding day at the HoliMont Ski Club in Ellicottville, NY.
The girls started their day with some fabulous hair and makeup, and who could forget the sweet flower girls as well! The guys got in some golfing, ok maybe more so spectating but a kind stranger let the groom take a celebrity shot (undisclosed if he made the put or not lol).
No wedding day is complete with a little off roading to the top of a mountain. At the top, Andrea had a sentimental first look with all of her sweet big brothers, most refusing to take off their sun glasses to hide their happy tears. Followed by their own first look, with many laughs and I quote “hubba hubba”s.
Once we made it back down, Andrea and Greg decided to take a private moment without any cameras or anyone else around. This was just one of many examples of their intentional heartfelt moments. Just the two of them went and checked out the ceremony space where they took a deep breathe and soaked it all in. We all know a wedding day can go by so fast so I think it’s super important to take intentional little breaks during the day to be alone in the moment. It was also amazing having some time to relax and freshen up right before the ceremony. They also used this time to hang out with their wedding party (and one more little shot of liquid courage to ease the pre aisle walk nerves).
Right before the ceremony, Andrea quietly passed out letters to everyone in the wedding party expressing what they meant to them being in their lives. This was one of my favorite moments of the day watching everyone burst into tears from such a heart felt gesture. It was truly an honor capturing Andrea and Greg’s boho HoliMont Ski Club wedding in Ellicottville, NY.
I am forever grateful for getting to witness such beautiful moments. If you’re ready to capture true moments, I’d love to chat! For all the latest and greatest, please follow my journey over on IG –@michellegodfreyphoto.
