It’s always so exciting to get to celebrate with our clients. Nickie and Kirby’s Peek’n Peak wedding presented an opportunity for two celebrations at once! This Halloween-themed union presented some amazing opportunities and incorporated some unique bridal traditions. It was such a joy to be a part of their day, and we’re thrilled with how their portraits turned out. It was a celebration with all treats and no tricks!
‘Til Death Do Them Part
Nickie and Kirby participated in some fun traditions throughout their Peek’n Peak wedding, and it was so much fun to capture every moment. First, they began with a handfasting ceremony. The ritual dates back to early Britain, especially popular in Tudor England and early Scotland. The couple’s hands were tied together as a symbol of the union of their two lives. It was a super beautiful way to literally “tie the knot!”
Their mantilla veil ceremony was also stunning — we can’t pick a favorite moment! In accordance with the Spanish traditional, a gorgeous veil was placed over both the bride and groom. It was especially special to see the covering held in place by Nickie and Kirby’s mothers.
Of course, moms weren’t the only members of the family who joined in on the fun! Their dogs, Roxy and Petunia, made the wedding party complete. It’s so important to us that every photo session captures the one-of-a-kind stories and personalities of our couples. Special thanks to the pups for making that paw-sible!
The Peek’n Peak Wedding on Halloween
The Peek’n Peak Ski Resort in Clymer, NY was the perfect spot for this spooky celebration. Complete with luxury amenities, gorgeous dining rooms, and unbeatable outdoor vistas, Peek’n Peak was well-equipped to execute the scream-worthy theme. We had a blast capturing every angle of the beautiful ceremony. Our professional photography will allow Nickie and Kirby to relive their Hallowedding any day of the year!
A local cemetery plot was the perfect haunt to conclude the day. We had the privilege of capturing the bride and tomb as a part of the Nickie’s bridal portraits. We’re sure you’ll agree that she looks absolutely bewitching.
