Mabyn Ludke Photography is so, so right when she says this couple seems to have stepped right out of a movie. Their big day was so gorgeous, and they were so glamourous, we’re all a little green with envy over the stylish affair. And to get our full admiration on, we’re spending the day in the full image gallery – care to join us?
From Mabyn of Mabyn Ludke Photography… When I drove into Geneva on the Lake, my jaw hit the floor of my little white Mazda! My eyes could not believe the splendor in front of me. David and his brother greeted me in the parking lot like old friends. He was dressed to the nines in his black suit and looked like he should be sipping cocktails with high society, yet there was an undeniable excitement about him. It was easy to see why when I met Cori in her absolutely amazing Maggie Sottero gown. Both of them had stepped right out of the movies into my life! I was in photographer’s heaven!
Their ceremony was set on the edge of Seneca Lake with a stunning view and was full of the simple sentiment of their love. I had expected to spend a lot of time taking large family pictures, but Cori and David opted to do just a few close family shots and then went off to get their Next Top Model on! We spent a good part of an hour just hanging out with the two of them, getting some of my favorite shots of the summer! When they finally made their entrance into their black and white-themed reception, the excitement that David had before the ceremony was amplified by all of their family & friends cheering them on in celebration of their love! The rest of the day was filled with outdoor activities, amazing food, dancing, and photo shoots, photo shoots, photo shoots! Cori and David even had a full costume change into Hollywood Glam-inspired outfits. I loved how Cori’s second dress mimicked her Maggie Sottero gown. Everything was elegant and gorgeous! When they entered their reception for the second time, they were greeted by Emad Batayeh and his extremely talented band. The energy didn’t quit even when the music stopped — the joy Cori and David felt overflowed into sentiments and goodbyes. I felt so lucky and blessed to be a part of their day! I still get a giant grin on my face when thinking about it all!
