Natalie and Douglas were married at Holimont Ski Resort in Ellicottville, N.Y. on September 1. “Holimont is a private ski resort, near the area we got engaged,” Natalie said. “From having the entire space to getting married at the top of the mountain (ferrying guests to the ceremony via chairlifts) to the gorgeous woodwork and floor to ceiling windows inside, we absolutely adored the overall flow.” The bride wore a sweetheart beaded bodice wedding gown with a ruffled skirt, accessorized with a feather hair pin in her updo and a birdcage veil, while the groom wore a gray suit, accessorized with an argyle tie. Bridesmaids and junior bridesmaids wore gray chiffon and cream lace dresses and carried dried flower arrangements. The vows took place in a traditional handfasting unity, but the processional and recessional music choices were super fun,  including The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. The newlyweds’ favorite part of the reception? “The menu — British/American fusion — passed canapes, Pimm’s cocktail toast, five-course tasting, mini cupcakes in a variety of flavors, and s’mores bar,” she said. “Our favors were custom koozies, and a caricature artist too!”

Finding the right wedding photographer isn’t unlike finding the right person to marry. You’ll be spending a lot of time with your photographer throughout your wedding day (including some personal moments), so you’ll want to make sure that you get along well with him or her. And of course, you’ll also want someone with talent, creativity, and a style that reflects your own. So what’s the best way to find “the one”? First, search WeddingWire’s vendor reviews to find a list of talented photographers near you, check out their portfolios, and pick out three or four photographers you’d like to interview.
