In July I met Harrison & Alicia at Chautauqua Lake’s Long Point State Park for their engagement photos and the weather was just perfect! Unfortunately, it seems as though they forgot to file the paperwork for a second gorgeous day. I drove to Jamestown in the rain and when I got out of my car, the thermometer in my car read 46 degrees.However, when people are good sports, beautiful images can happen in spite of the rain!
Alicia got ready at The Oaks B&B and then we headed over to St. James RC Church.
Because of the rain, everyone brainstormed to try to think of indoor locations we could use for wedding party photos. I haven’t lived in the Jamestown area for 10 years now so I wasn’t a lot of help. The groomsmen called several places and finally got a hold of someone at the Lucille Ball Little Theater so we stopped in there for a few photos – before we realized that it basically just looks like a movie theater inside. Oh well, I’m still grateful to the woman there who let us in. After that we walked up to the alley across the street and did a couple quick pictures in the rain. I know it was cold, but I’m glad everyone was a good sport about it!
From there we drove to Warren, PA for the reception at Conewango Valley Country Club. There was still time before the reception started, so we drove past the CC and down to downtown Warren and took pictures in front of the Warren County Courthouse. Then sun actually came out a little bit and we got a peek of blue sky!
Then we ended up at Conewango Valley CC and sneaked in a couple more photos before heading inside for the rest of the night.
The DJ had a fog machine that he used throughout the night – definitely added a different quality to some of the photos! The dancefloor was full the whole time I was there. Top 40, Country, classic wedding songs… I never had to go looking for action! I’m glad everyone had such a fun time!
Congratulations, and I hope that you have much, MUCH better weather for your honeymoon!
