Red, White and Blue, Nautical Wedding at Casablanca on Cherry Island {Moreni}

Potsdam Based Photographer: Natalie’s Studio| Full Wedding

What a great day for Brooke and Mike at Casablanca on Cherry Island in the Thousand Islands.  Perfect weather, amazing couple, fun crowd, and gorgeous location.  I have really enjoyed getting to know Brooke and Mike.  We have a lot of things in common, construction, hunting, butchering, bird dogs and more.  Brooke and Mike have an amazing work ethic.  You can tell they are driven and keep busy but also make the time for their family and friends.  It has been so great being part of their wedding day.

Brooke chose a nautical theme with red, white and blue colors for the wedding.  So naturally getting married by the water was a must.  And is there anything better than an island?  I think not!  There is something about being surrounded by water that really does put you at ease and in a relaxed mindset.  And Brooke really deserved that, she works two jobs and was ready for a break.  I am so glad she was able to get some island time for her wedding. 

Besides the water, Brooke and Mike are passionate about hunting and rural activities like ATV rides and loving their dogs.  Stella, Brookes beloved black lab was a member of the wedding party.  You could tell Stella loves her mama.  She affectionately stayed by her side through most of the morning. 

Mike chose a really unique wedding band.  It is made from a deer antler and a whiskey barrel.  It is not only beautiful but unique and a perfect fit for Mike.  Brooke surprised mike by wearing white cowboy boots under her gorgeous wedding dress. 

Brooke looked beautiful in her dress from Silk Bridal in Easton PA.  I love the lace elements of it.  And her flowers were wooden flowers.   I always like wooded bouquets.  They were from Charmadillo Wedding on Etsy.  I think they are great because they are sturdy, can be purchased in advance and you can keep them for years and years!  I think that is a big bonus.  Her veil ripped the morning of the wedding.  But luckily her mother had her veil from her wedding there.  So, Brooke wore that one instead.  It made it even more special.   

I am so glad I was able to be part of their amazing wedding day.  Please join me in congratulating Mr. and Mrs. Moreni!

The Father Daughter dance really gets me.  I find myself crying behind my camera.  I loved this shot I was able to create for them.  You can tell they have a special bond. 


Brooke and Mike’s cake was made by her friend and bridesmaid Abby Fontana.  Isn’t it lovely.  And I love the little comedic element of Stella taking a bite. 
 

Mike made a custom corn hole game for the wedding.
