Adirondack Wedding on the Lake // Kelye and Christopher // The Woods Inn, Inlet, New York

Josh Baron

As Rob and I were packing up the car to leave Kelye and Chris' wedding, we said to each other, "What a perfect wedding!" It was a beautiful, brisk autumn day in the Adirondacks. The foliage was fantastic, the venue was a perfect Adirondack setting, and Kelye and Chris could not have been more fun to hang out with. To top it off, we shot with the incredibly talented, super fun Jordan Balash. Thank you again, Kelye and Chris, for having us be a part of your big day!

Triple Wedding - Three sisters get married on the same day - Upstate New York Barn Wedding

Josh Baron

Naomi Reichard sent Bear In Motion an inquiry and stated that her and two of her sisters would be getting married on the same day. I thought it might be a typo or we just misunderstood her. We decided to set a time to talk on the phone and sure enough, it was true! Three sisters were to be married on the same day! As a cinematographer and storyteller, I immediately started thinking of the logistics and how we would be able to properly tell the story of three separate weddings, six individuals and their families, all coming together on one day.  Even with the added pressure and some other professionals saying "you're crazy to take that wedding," there was no way we could pass up a chance to tell such a unique story. 

We met up with the Reichard sisters, Hannah, Naomi and Elisabeth along with their fiances Mike, Caleb and Hunter before the wedding. We had a blast filming a pre-wedding shoot in Hamilton, New York.

The wedding went off without a hitch! Bear In Motion brought a crew of five and each couple had their own photographers (a total of 10 photographers and cinematographers)! SWANK by design, the wedding coordinator, was a pleasure to work with and kept everything moving. Elevated Events had everyone on the dance floor all night. Caleb Brown, one of the grooms actually made all the tables and benches used at the wedding. Way to go, man! The tables were topped with gorgeous flowers by Floribunda Designs and everything was brought together with amazing artwork by Adirondack Ink.

Saratoga National - Saratoga Springs wedding - Meaghan & David

Josh Baron

I met Meaghan and Dave in a little coffee shop outside their apartment in NYC to discuss details of their wedding. After talking with them for only five minutes, I realized, this wedding was going to be great! Meaghan shared a story that was so profound and put everything into perspective. She had to have emergency brain surgery three months before the wedding. After that, they realized they should not get so caught up in all the details and anxiety of planning the wedding, but instead cherished everyday leading up to the day they would be married. "Iron Meg" is one tough cookie. She has trained and completed an Iron Man. She's no joke! Dave is also an athlete and a super laid back guy. 

There wedding was held at the beautiful Saratoga National Golf Course. We had the opportunity to work alongside amazing professionals. Dave Bigler photo and films, Mazzone Hospitality, Them Apples BandAnthology StudioTrue Grace Makeup

Beacon, NY wedding - The Roundhouse - Chelsea & Chris

Josh Baron

Beacon, New York is such a beautiful, trendy, hip little town along the Hudson River. It is no wonder Chelsea and Chris wanted to get married there. Sitting on the edge of a water fall, the Roundhouse is the jewel of the town and hosted one of the most beautiful weddings we were able to be a part of. Although I could go on and on about how beautiful the ceremony was along the river, and the stunning reception hall, the real prize here was Chelsea and Chris. These two are some of the most kind, easy-going and fun people you could ever meet! Their family and friends are magnetic and so are they. Thank you, Chelsea and Chris, we throughly enjoyed spending time with you on your beautiful wedding day!

Rustic Barn Wedding - Syracuse, NY

Josh Baron

Sarah and Ross' wedding hit it out of the park. Right from the start the wedding had a very magical feeling to it. The ceremony took place at the beautiful Wolf Oak Acres beside a creek, surrounded by trees. At some points it looked like it was snowing as the wind carried pollen across the beautiful ceremony location. Following the ceremony the reception was held at a rustic barn with plenty of beautiful details. 

Our favorite story of the day was the way Sarah and Ross reacted to an incident that happened the day before. Sarah and her bridesmaids all had their belongings stolen out of their car which included the marriage license, drivers license, and passport. This meant that Sarah and Ross could not go on their honeymoon they had planned right after the wedding. This could have easily destroyed their spirits for the wedding day but instead, they didn't mention it once. They danced as if no one was watching and had a constant smile on the entire day. It showed such maturity and poise. Ross' groomsmen stepped up and reserved them a small cottage on Martha's Vineyard.

It was a truly inspiring wedding to be a part of and we are so honored to share it. Thank you, Sarah and Ross.

Beautiful Vermont Mountain Top Wedding

Josh Baron

This wedding was the perfect example of why we love what we do. We arrived at a stunning venue with awe-inspiring landscapes to film a beautiful love story. The ceremony location in a beautiful open field over-looking the gorgeous Vermont mountains, as you can see, was out of this world! Barb and Bryan's vows were some of the best we have ever heard. They made you laugh, cry, and reflect on all the beauty in this world. Well done, guys! We are beyond grateful to have been a part of your day!

Lake George wedding - Brianna & LJ

Josh Baron

We showed up the day of the wedding having not ever met Brianna and LJ, and we left feeling like we grew up with them. That's how they roll. They are incredibly genuine people and after meeting their friends and family, it was easy to see where they get it from.

They were married at the gorgeous and iconic First Presbyterian Church of Glens Falls and had the reception at Lambert's Landing, a beautiful peninsula on the south-west point of Lake George, NY. 

Brianna and LJ arrived by boat for cocktail hour, they carried on the tradition of jumping into the lake as the Lac du Saint Sacrement passed by and concluded the night with S'mores and a firework show!

Thanks for inviting Bear In Motion to be a part of such an amazing wedding, Brianna & LJ!

The Crooked Lake House - Kelsey & Zachary

Josh Baron

Kelsey and Zack are old friends. So, to say filming their wedding was an honor, would be an understatement. Knowing their friends and family and having an insider view of their wedding was really special. The weekend started off with a great rehearsal dinner at Uncle Marty's Adirondack Grill, complete with the age old tradition of the egg toss. The wedding was held at one of our favorite venues, the Crooked Lake House in Avrill Park, New York. Congratulations, Kelsey and Zack.

Canfield Casino wedding - Saratoga Springs, NY

Josh Baron

Erin and Terrance were married in beautiful Saratoga Springs, New York.  These two didn't stop smiling all day.  After their ceremony at St. Clements Church, we stopped by Yaddo Gardens, where it started to drizzle but that didn't seem to affect these two love birds at all.  They strapped on their dancing shoes and finished off the night at the gorgeous Canfield Casino.
