An August Wedding At Lake Placid NY

It's no secret by now ... we LOVE Daria and Andy Bishop's photography!

We featured Amanda & Jeff's gorgeous Shelburne Farms wedding just a couple of days ago along with some great reasons on the decision to have a "first look". If you haven't already seen it, take a peek!

And back in February 08 Abby featured another of Daria's weddings ... one that a loyal Style Me Pretty reader, Robyn, sent in. Robyn & Keith's wedding took place at The Round Barn Farm in Waitsfield, Vermont. Robyn said that she had always considered herself fairly creative, but it wasn't until planning her own wedding that she realized just how much she could do, herself! Here's the first of the posts from that day.  For lots of DIY ideas, be sure and read Part II and Part III. By the way, the color palette was rich! Apple green (chartreuse), deep purples, browns, and ivories. Rich.

So moving on to today's featured wedding ... when we saw Brandi and Marty's Adirondack wedding on Daria's blog, our list of photo requests was a mile long! (Andy actually said we were like kids in a candy store ...) We have lots of delightful shots from this wedding, and there are tons more on Daria's blog!

Doesn't Brandi look like she's just about to burst with excitement?

Such a doll! I'll bet this little girl feels pretty important right about now.

Brandi and Marty were married at St. Agnes, an incredible Roman Catholic Church in Lake Placid, NY.

The photo of Brandi (above) won 2nd place in the "Bride Getting Ready" category of the Wedding Photojournalist Association's quarterly contest! Way to go Daria!

Daria Bishop Sunshine Yellow Color Palette

I think Abby and I were having one of our same color karma days today! Her featured wedding (Julia & Brian) also showcases a yummy yellow color palette. Sunshine, joy, happiness ... a perfect wedding color!

Now, a word about baby's breath. Tons of people say they don't care for it ... but when it's used like this ... mmm ... gorgeous.

If you've been following our Little Black Book Blog for long, you know I love a great ring shot ... (and precious "mini-maids").

The reception was held at the Lake Placid Club Golf House (said to have the most beautiful view of the High Peaks in the Adirondacks, with an open-beamed ceiling, a massive stone fireplace & magnificent antler chandeliers).

So, what else can we say? Brandi and Marty, you guys had an awesome wedding. And Daria and Andy, you guys rock!
