Kayla and Matthew made it a point to incorporate their favorite things on their wedding day, there were nods to her love of books everywhere, a trip to the LakeHouse Pub for a Guinness (or two), and spontaneous dodgeball matches. Needless to say it was a one-of-a-kind wedding! We started with a first look at Mirbeau Inn and Spa followed with a St. Mary’s ceremony and then on to The Skaneateles Country Club for their beautiful reception. The entire day was perfectly orchestrated by the talented gals at MLH Events, it’s always a pleasure to see Megan and her crew because you can expect exquisite attention to detail, she brought Kayla’s vision to life with style. I love a wedding that has personal touches and these two certainly made this wedding their own, thanks for being yourselves…it was a beautiful day!

Emily and Lenny’s wedding day began at Hobbit Hollow House, a lovely backdrop for any occasion but especially beautiful on a wedding day for getting ready and then a first look. Emily’s family and her fabulous bridesmaids were all at Hobbit Hollow and the atmosphere was joyful and light, there were smiles and laughter in every room. After the first look and one quick thunderstorm we headed to the Skaneateles Country Club for their ceremony and reception. They were married at the point on a picture perfect afternoon with a ceremony that beautifully blended both of their family’s traditions. It was moving to see to both customs blended so harmoniously, laughter and tears of joy were everywhere during the ceremony. This was the most blissful wedding day I have ever had the pleasure to photograph and that happy display of emotion was my favorite part of the day…this wedding was the closest to perfect you can get, congratulations Emily and Lenny!

Meghan and Matthew had a perfect evening for an engagement session at the Skaneateles Country Club. I am so exited to celebrate with these two next year at the Lodge at Welch Allyn, this will be my second wedding for Matt’s family (I photographed his brother’s wedding in 2013) and It’s always a great time when the Woods are together…I am sure Meghan’s family will be fantastic too! These two are just so lovable and fun, it certainly shows in the images. I can’t wait to see these two happy faces on their wedding day next August.

Rose and Michael are two of the most kind and gentle people I have ever had the pleasure to photograph, their quiet and sweet affection towards each other is so endearing. Throughout the day, I kept thinking that they are going to be fantastic parents someday (no pressure)! They are caring, patient, lovely individuals whose qualities are amplified when they are together, you make a great couple! Thank you for having me document your wedding day, the reception was at the always picturesque Skaneateles Country Club. My favorite moment of the day was the dramatic sunset, after a bit of a rainy start to the day they were rewarded with brilliant blue clouds with a hint of pale pink as the sun was going down.
