Casablanca on Cherry Island Wedding {Al and Heather Ghormoz}

Potsdam Based Photographer: Natalie’s Studio| Wedding

Wow!  What a gorgeous wedding! And even better than the wedding is this amazing couple!  I can’t get enough of Al and Heather.  They are just so fun to be around.  And might I say… amazing to photograph too!  Seriously, they are both a wonder in front of the camera; natural in their own right and then put them together… and it’s just magic. 

I really enjoy their company.  They are both so kind, considerate and just laid back.  And they are so in love.  I am sure they are a blessing to all their family and friends.  I, for one, am glad to know them and get the opportunity to work with them.

Al and Heather chose the stunning Victorian mansion Casablanca on Cherry Island in the heart of the 1000 Islands.  This beautiful location is owned by Phil and Nancy Amsterdam (see info below).  It’s an exquisite backdrop to relax and celebrate the beautiful start of a marriage.  And on this June 1st of 2019 we had a wonderful day for it.  Beautiful weather and a fantastic environment.  Al and Heather got ready in the eclectic rooms of Casablanca while family and friends enjoyed snacks and brunch in the kitchen.  Guest arrived by boat before the ceremony which was held on the sloping lawn by the gazebo.  Following the ceremony, we were able to catch one of the freight ships passing by before it was time for cocktail hour and then the dances.  Family, friends and guests enjoyed dinner catered by the Clipper Inn and then mingled around the island enjoying the views or dancing the night away.  And we sent Al and Heather off with a big sparkler exit before the boats arrived to depart. 

Heather chose a stunning vintage inspired dress from BHLDN.  I love the tiered tulle a-line skirt and sweetheart lace neckline.  It was also warm white which looked great on Heather.  She really rocked it and absolutely felt like a princess in it!  Al had a sharp navy suit from Brooks Brothers that had a subtle pattern to it making it unique.  I love blue on grooms!  I think it is a perfect balance of not too light and not too dark.

Heather’s flowers came from Jayflora outside of Albany NY.  The farm uses sustainable and organic practices for their 10 acres of flowers.  Check out what the offer (see below) it is an amazing variety.  Jamie from Jayflora put together a beautiful bouquet of various flowers including orange ranunculus, white and black anemones, bleeding hearts, little orange geum, peony tulips, and lots of eucalyptus.  The pop of orange brought out the creamy peach color of the bridesmaids dressed which were from Birdy Grey.

Al and Heather’s cake and cupcakes came from Cakes by Lorraine.  I have worked many weddings with Cakes by Lorraine and her work is always fantastic.  And this was the same.  These cupcakes were DELICIOUS!  I may have eaten more than one…

It has been such a pleasure getting to know Al and Heather and be a part of the beginning of their marriage.  Now we have climbed mountains and explored islands together.  I had the pleasure of being the witness to their marriage, which really meant a lot to me.  Al and Heather are truly an amazing couple.  What I love most, is they are genuinely caring people.  You can tell they truly care for all people and things and are so very kind.  They are deeply in love and it shows when you are around them.  I know they will have a wonderful marriage filled with lots of love and adventure.  From the bottom of my heart, congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Al Ghormoz
