Wagner Vineyards Wedding: Julie & Sergey (Part I)

Happy Wednesday! Things are all a flutter around here as we get ready to head north for our next “Walk Through a Wedding w/ J&M” Workshop! But in the mean time, we thought we’d tickle your fancy with some more wedding goodness! :) We’re holding back Caitlin & Mike (Part II) for right now because they’ve been pulled for publication, but as soon as that’s up we’ll be able to show you the rest of their oh-so-sweet Farmer’s Museum wedding. So in the mean time, we’ll just keep cranking em out and that brings us to Julie & Sergey’s gorgeous Wagner Vineyards wedding up in the Finger Lakes.

Julie & Sergey were married on a day where the clouds threatened, but not a drop of rain would dare fall as they stood together in front of the vines and promised forever. It was only once we were all safe inside that they sky opened and the rain poured down. But even that only lasted a few minutes, and then the clouds parted and an honest to goodness rainbow fell across the fields. Julie & Sergey, I hope you’ll always love just like this. Sure a little rain may fall now and then, but if you’ll just keep holding on to each other something so much more beautiful will always come of it. J&S thank you SO much for making us feel like family. I cannot tell you how honored we were to be your wedding photographers and thank you for being the kind of friends that you are.

So much love,

Let’s start with Julie’s exquisite dress, shall we? I think so.

A few bridesmaids details…

A Finger Lakes bottle of wine and a veil on a little table to set the mood.

Julie & Sergey got ready right next to each other which we LOVE because it makes it so easy to pop back and forth and grab pictures like this. **J&M Bride Tip: Get ready in the same hotel as each other to save a ton of time and make sure you get pictures of him getting ready too.

Sergey I ADORE this picture of you. I just may frame it and put it in *our* house too!

The Dapper Groom.

Meanwhile, the ladies were ready to get this party started.

Here we go!

Julie, oh Julie. You just took raar to a whole new level. How ’bout Bam, Yowza and SHAZAM!

This one looks like a painting to me. And it makes me want to drink cappuccino and talk about what it means. Obviously.


Ladies, there are no words. You are all my heroes!

Off to Wagner Vineyards for the ceremony!

    Sorry missed a question (noob)

    Do you actually ask the people to stop for a second while they dress for a photograph or you click in motion with high shutter speed.

  14. Emily Faulknor
