Elizabeth & Patrick’s beautiful Woodstock Inn wedding

Hurrah! Our first wedding of 2014! Elizabeth and Patrick’s incredible Woodstock Inn wedding was an absolute blast. These lovebirds had all of their family and friends come to snowy cold Vermont to witness their never ending love for each other on one of the most beautiful days all winter. Though it was cold, the sun shined brightly on everything and made for some spectacular photos. It was a delight to spend the day with these folks – everyone was immensely happy and were not afraid to show it! So many great big smiles and laughs making our job very, very easy. This was a dancing crowd – everyone in attendance could (and did) cut a rug! Even after all of the official dancing had ended we were able to take part in a special surprise for Liz. Unbeknownst to her, a special performance was waiting in a room downstairs from the regular dance floor. Her favorite band, Orange Crush, had been secretly staged down there to end the night with an 80’s cover explosion. One of the most delightful things we’ve seen in a long time – she was truly surprised and everyone absolutely loved it. We’re greatly appreciative to have been there. Congrats Liz and Pat!

2013 in Review – our best year…yet!

Well 2013 was a big year for Ampersand. 31 AMAZING weddings with 62 amazing people. 28 different venues in 3 different states. One 3 wedding weekend. One Wednesday wedding. One 4th of July wedding. One couple who jumped in a pool, and one amazing year of perfect places, people and photographing love. In doing so, we got to meet so many wonderful fun loving people, visit incredibly beautiful places both near and far, eat tons of great food and have an all around amazing season. Most of all, we had the privilege of witnessing more love than most people get to. All of our clients shared a deep love and appreciation that truly makes this world a better place and subsequently our jobs that much more amazing. So as we look forward to another busy year, 2014 looks like it’s going to be filled with as much epic beauty and wonderfulness and we couldn’t be happier. Here’s a collection of some of our favorite shots from 2013 – having clocked in over 15,000 photos we could only pick just a few of our favorites. Enjoy, and Happy New Year!

Mackie & Mark – married in Lake Placid, NY

We couldn’t have spent a more spectacularly perfect winter wedding with a better group of people to wrap up our last 2013 wedding. Mackie and Mark were an absolute pleasure to work with – we spent the night before their wedding with them at their rehearsal dinner, were up with the guys playing hockey in the morning all the way till the late night bon fire and sparklers. Everything took place in quintessentially winter-esque Lake Placid. Pine trees, Christmas lights, lakeside cabins and all.  We spent the rest of the night at the Whiteface Club nestled in the Adirondack Mountains, listening to The Elements, and dancing the night away. Thank you so much Mackie and Mark for making our last 2013 wedding so memorable, and congrats!
