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!

An Adirondack wedding at Forest Lake Camp – Lisa & Mike

Lisa and Mike’s beautiful adirondack wedding was nothing short of incredible! Tucked away at the quaint Forrest Lake Camp we had a fun filled day full of friends, family, and love. The venue doubles as a wedding destination but being primarily a summer camp, it felt like the best of both worlds! We were transported to lakeside times of archery, wilderness adventure, and summertime fun. The bride and groom did a wonderful job tying together green and yellow colors throughout the day. All of their paper flowers were handmade, lanterns were hung, and a traditional hand quilted chuppah all helped make a complete theme we loved. Friends of Ampersand, John and Ashley Nicholls, made sure the already amazing day was filled with their signature songs of incredible music. We couldn’t have asked for a better day – congrats Lisa and Mike!

Mackie & Mark – engaged in NYC

In the midst of busy wedding season, we were so excited to be able to take a couple days to visit NYC and hang out with Mackie & Mark. Between visiting the PUNK exhibit at the Met, and getting stuck in rush hour traffic in the Lincoln Tunnel we met up with these two, and explored the city. We stopped at their favorite bar, sat on the stoops of beautiful brownstones, and ended the night in Central Park. Mackie & Mark will be getting married in beautiful Lake Placid winter wonderland this December and we cannot wait. Congrats you two!!

Meg & Andy – Married in Lake Placid – Adirondack Wedding Photography

On Saturday, we headed out bright and early to photograph Meg & Andy’s winter wedding. We have shot in the Adirondacks before, and Ellen spends nearly every summer there, but never have we shot in Lake Placid, nor in the winter! At one point in the drive over, the road opened up and the mountains appeared glistening in the sun, and we knew it was going to be a spectacular day. The nuptials were nothing short of that – spectacular, beautiful, amazing! Meg put so much personal detail into the day, making all the bouquets and boutonnieres, and the dress was worn by her Mother for her wedding 30 years ago! Take a peek at the photos below as words won’t do them justice.

Jessica & Ethan – married at the Mountain House in Keene, NY

J & E


Jessica and Ethan got married on top of Hurricane Mountain at The Mountain House in Keene, NY. Aptly named as it poured most of the day! After making it through the deluge, we arrived to an excited Jessica, getting into the j.crew dress her mother altered with lace from her own wedding gown (so beautiful!) and to Ethan hanging out and chilling with his best man and close friends. Ethan and Jessica were optimistic despite the rain, and both still wanted to get married under the beautiful floral and twig arbor waiting on the mountain side.

The attendees all gathered, huddled under umbrellas as Jessica and Ethan shared heartfelt vows of their devotion to each other. Jessica and her sister Stephanie warned us there would be tears, and tissues were abound. One of the guests brought out a cleverly crafted over sized tissue box, stuffed with paper towels. 

The rain couldn’t damper this party. Jessica and Ethan finished their ceremony by riding off on a Schwinn tandem bicycle. (We have always wanted a couple to have bikes in their wedding, our dreams came true!!)

The best part of the night though was Jessica’s cousin Nina surprising the bride and groom with a song. She was so sweet, and all three of them were in tears by the end of it. 

By the end of the night, we both forgot we were wet and we were rocking out in the photo booth provided by Daddy-O photo booth rentals. Check out the photo of us in the monkey glasses (we couldn’t resist the obligatory mustache shots either). 

What a beautiful Adirondack wedding!
