-“What a lovely day of late summer I thought to myself while unpacking the trunk of my car on the Paramount Country Club parking lot.”
It was the end of September and it still felt like best days of Summer. Not to hot not to humite. The light is perfect at this time of year. It is lower and warmer – almost like in the end of May. It was a perfect day for – Paramount Country Club Wedding.
I met Emily and Cory last year where they were on a search for wedding photographer who will capture the genuine moments and photos showing their love and laughter. Emily told me “- I want all the pictures” and she meant what she said. I love working with couple who know what they want. Emily wanted to their engagement session in Brooklyn with art wall and in the freshly open Domino park. We had a lot of fun and the images ended up being displayed in the Paramount Country Club during the cocktail hour.
It was not my first Paramount Country Club wedding. I truly appreciate family vibe of the place. The stuff is extremely helpful and pleasant. I think this the one of the very few golf courses that give the photographer and the couple o lot of freedom regarding the locations for the photos. With Emily and Cory, we had plenty of time to take photos with the greenery but also in tall grasses the club has up the hill. It gives the photos somewhat of the south-west look – casual but elegant.
I was very happy to do some great group photos with lifestyle character on the beautifully decorated stairs for the Bridal Party and Family before the ceremony. Paramount Country Club Wedding comes with a lot of perks. One of them is the ceremony location. The couple is placed little higher and all of the guest can enjoy the view of the of the celebration. Right behind them is a gorgeous view of the mountains. The fountain in the middle is a perfect location for some portraits of newlyweds, but it can also serve as a foreground for some interesting ceremony photos.
Emily and Cory said “yes”, and it was a time for the reception. After the hora dance and official speeches, the dance floor got full again with a lot of gusts dancing and having fun. The band did a great job keeping it this way. The cake cutting took a short moment, but Emily managed to smudge a cake icing into Cory’s chick. 🙂
I asked if it was ok, to take them out for some night photos. Emily asked, if we can do it in five minutes. I promised her I will bring them back to the dancefloor quickly. We took a cart and the ride back to the golf course. At night Paramount Country Club looks completely different. It turned, we had a foggy weather and we could have some interesting artistic effect on the photos. Little beams of light wrapping around them and giving romantic mood.
