Gorgeous Micro Wedding at the Gideon Putnam | Saratoga Weddings

Micro Weddings Are A Great Way To Get Married!

I have been super behind in blogging for my client work.  This year was (thankfully) very busy on the wedding side especially, so I fell behind and never caught up.  So today, I would like to blog a gorgeous Micro Wedding at the Gideon Putnam in Saratoga.  This wedding proves that you don’t need to have a huge event to enjoy the perks of a wedding.  We had a lovely location, beautifully selected and fitted attire, elegant flowers, and perfect weather to boot!  Without further ado, here is Danielle and James’ Gideon Putnam Elopement Slide Show:

I love the slide show format, but in case you would like to peep some of the individual images, here are a few of my personal favorites:

Micro Wedding at the Gideon Putnam
I met up with our couple in the lobby of the historic Gideon Putnam Hotel in Saratoga Springs NY.

We quickly went to the front of the hotel to get some shots. It was a stunning fall day.

We normally obsess about the Bride’s attire, but a well tailored suit on the Groom is just perfection.

Danielle and James chose to exchange vows under the Portico area out back–great spot!
Second Wedding Elopement
Hands are so eloquent. I love the way Danielle is holding James’ hand.

The moment before the kiss. is the best for photos.

A detail shot of the rings is a must.

Candid moments are always nice to capture.

This room by the Portico is just so pretty, so naturally we used it for some portraits with window light.  Silhouettes are particularly nice when the dress has lace texture.

After a full length, a three quarter view is lovely.
