Park Chateau Winter Wedding with Pastel Details

Park Chateau Winter Wedding Lisa and John

Weddings

And just like that, after an 11 week break from shooting weddings, my 2022 wedding season is here! Wow, if this first wedding is any indication of what my weddings are going to look like this year, I’m in for a treat! I can’t wait to share my favorites from Lisa and John’s wedding day… But first, a little backstory, because who doesn’t love reading about all the behind-the-scenes details of a wedding day?

I met John when he was in high school and he was my Spanish student for two years! He was in my Spanish IV Honors class his junior year and my AP Spanish class his senior year – I remember him being well-mannered, energetic, joyful, and so, so smart. Eventually, life led him to law school at Syracuse University, which is where he met Lisa and they fell in love. About ten years later, they are now husband and wife!

Park Chateau Winter Wedding

Like so many couples, from the moment Lisa and John walked onto the property at Park Chateau, they knew they would eventually be tying the knot here. Park Chateau Estate had the aesthetic they’d been looking for: romantic with a French flair. It was simply a stunning day – filled with dusty rose and ivory details, lots of family, and a happy new start for the bride and groom. Due to the pandemic, Lisa and John actually waited an entire year to have the wedding celebration they dreamed of, and it’s safe to say it was worth the wait. Their big day included a sweet first look, an emotional ceremony, amazing energy from their wedding party and guests, an interfaith Jewish-Catholic ceremony, and of course, stunning portraits in their very own Garden of Love by Dahlia Floral & Event Design.
I absolutely loved kicking off my 2022 wedding season with these two – there’s something pretty special about capturing the wedding of a past student from my former life as a teacher. I have so many favorite memories from working with them, but one of the best parts was getting to know John’s lovely wife, Lisa, and realizing he hit the jackpot with her. These two were made for each other and I couldn’t be happier for them!

Congratulations, Lisa and John!! I was so honored to capture your day – thank you for an amazing start to my wedding season! Enjoy planning your honeymoon to the South of France and Croatia. I know you’ll love the scenic views, delicious food, and beach time!
