This wedding actually took place in spring of 2019, but I'm just now blogging it 😅 

Alex, from NC, and Kurt, from NY, met at their friend's wedding where Alex was the maid of honor and Kurt was a groomsman. Kurt moved to NC shortly after and the rest is history! They decided to get married in New York, outside of the Densmore Church on Wellesley Island. The guys got ready for the day at the Hart House in the 1000 Islands (an actual dream spot!) and the girls got ready in a cute Airbnb. The reception was held at a nearby park, where guests were treated with ice cream, iced coffee, burgers, and fries. Pretty much a dream menu 😍

This was my first destination wedding and I was super nervous about traveling with all of my gear. The main piece of advice I can share about that is just to pack super light on the personal items. I didn't check a bag, carried my camera gear in a carry on and my clothes and personal items in a backpack. And packing clothes for a wedding was easy for me- I only wear black so I just packed two outfits and a pair of night clothes. 

This was such a great experience, and I would 100% do it again. I love to travel (to literally anywhere) and I love to take photos, so getting to do the two together as a job was a dream! And now Alex and Kurt are having a baby and I'm shooting Alex's little sister's wedding in January. I legit cried when she contacted me about it. Just so grateful and humbled to be able to build these relationships and this dream ❤️
