Anna + Austin. A Lake Placid Lodge Wedding in the Adirondacks.

I received the timeline of events for Anna & Austin's wedding at Lake Placid Lodge a few weeks prior to the date and the first line stuck out to me:

8am.  Austin, best man, and father of the groom - fly fishing the west branch of the Ausable River.

What?  Yes, please.  

Even though I wasn't scheduled to start for several hours after that there was no way I was going to miss it.  I didn't care how early it was.  In my head I was having visions of fog and mist, sunlight, fly rods and and an endless amount of trout leaping out of the water and into the nets.  And while that's not even remotely what it was like, I can safely say it was still awesome to experience and I had a blast documenting it.

Following that my buddy Aron and I got some breakfast at a killer diner in town, relaxed for a bit, and then began the day refreshed.  From the time I spent with Anna & Austin at their engagement session last fall, I knew their wedding day was going to be super chill and fun.  It was an intimate wedding at a great venue in Lake Placid - in the peak leaf season - and had a great serving of views, people and pictures.  It was a wonderful, memorable, wedding.
