I'm Donna Marie
An inclusive adventurous destination wedding and elopement photographer livin' in upstate New York. I'm here to empower all couples to create an intentional wedding day that focuses on the experience and the feels.
The Sackets Harbor Ballroom is a somewhat hidden gem when it comes to historic places to have your intimate wedding or elopement. It’s nestled right in the downtown area of Sackets Harbor with easy access to scenic places such as the Sackets Harbor Battlefield and the Lake Ontario shoreline. No matter the time of year, it’s a stunning venue to consider for your own celebration day. This particular celebration took place in the fall, during a windy, rainy day.
M reached out to me about documenting her wedding day earlier in 2022. When she spoke on what she was envisioning, I was happy to capture all the moments for her and her partner, T. I love being able to help couples create a timeline. I’ll also help with any planning you need along the way. This way, your day is absolutely authentic to who you are.
M opted for a first look with T, and a separate one with her father. She knew that having that little bit of time to themselves would make all the difference in the world. M + T’s amazing day was filled with all kinds of special and meaningful details. From the pies, to the cufflinks, they took the time to plan out all the touches.
If you’re looking for a photographer who is like your wedding planning buddy, I’ve gotchu. M + T included decorative touches from amazing vendors such as Wise Designs, Pretty Little Vintage Co., Chrissy Beans Bakery and Vanilla Bean Bake Shop. These vendors truly helped make their wedding celebration that much sweeter. And a huge shoutout to Jenn from Pineapple and Peony Events for coordinating the whole day for the couple so that they didn’t have to stress about a thing!
They enjoyed a celebration surrounded by roughly 50 of their friends and family.
Enjoy these moments from their Sackets Harbor Ballroom intimate wedding.
