Summer Wedding at the Mansion Saratoga | Wedding 2.0

Summer Wedding at the Mansion Saratoga | Marissa and Nathaniel

This year I photographed a very special Summer Wedding at the Mansion Saratoga.  This couple was originally scheduled to get married the previous year, but–well, COVID. Since I have been not fabulous about blogging individual weddings lately, I decided to share this one today.

When the Pandemic caused them to postpone their original date, Marissa and Nathaniel went ahead and did a very small backyard event with just their parents and siblings.  The also went ahead and planned their “big” wedding for the following year.  You can see the post from their Summer Backyard Wedding in Saratoga here.

Please take some time to enjoy the video below:

It really was a lovely event.  The weather was perfect, and all the original Wedding Vendors could participate–Yay!  This couple had the wedding of their dreams surrounded by family and friends in the most gorgeous outdoor setting.  A few of my very favorite moments are belows:

There were so many special moments at this wedding, but one of my favorite was Marissa’s First Look with her Dad, Brian.
