Barn Wedding in Cherry Valley, NY ♥ Melanie + Dan

We made our first visit to Glensfoot, in Cherry Valley, to photograph Melanie and Dan back in May for their engagement session.  Ever since, we have been anxiously awaiting our trip back to photograph their wedding! With such a unique place, and all of their fantastic planning and hard work, we had a hunch that it was going to be nothing short of spectacular! And guess what? We were so right! When we arrived in Cherry Valley, we were disappointed that Mother Nature decided to dish out a cold, damp, and rainy day for them, but it had little effect on how excited everyone was to be there for such a special day. Melanie and her lovely ladies took over the main house for their preparations, while Dan and his gents readied in the “Shop”. Their army of help ran around the grounds, in between the rain drops, to get everything set up. Their ceremony, expected to be out on the lawn, was moved into the rustic Century Barn, and their guests were ushered in under the cover of umbrellas. Their vows were recited, following a lot of laughs, as they exchanged such loving looks at each other. It was heartwarming to say the least! After it was official, the newlyweds headed under the tent for their ceremonial shooting of the mini-cannon. We’re quite certain that we were to excited to care that we went temporarily deaf for a few minutes afterward! While the guests enjoyed cocktail hour, the rain finally stopped! Perfect timing for Melanie and Dan to drop…

Wedding at The Frog Pond, Skaneateles, NY ♥ Rachael + Nathan

You might remember back in May, we posted an engagement session of the beautiful couple, Rachael and Nathan. Well, today, we are delighted to present to you, a sneak peek from their romantic, and heartwarming wedding at the Frog Pond. When we prepare for a wedding with one of our couples, we have come to expect that there will be touching moments that will really move us, throughout the day. It’s a part of what makes what we do so incredibly special, and worthwhile. However, on Rachael and Nathan’s wedding day, we were not quite expecting all of the emotion and beauty that was so carefully woven into all the aspects of their day. When we arrived at the Frog Pond, Colleen was delighted to find Rachael sitting quietly in her suite, with a pen and notebook in her lap. She was writing the words that she would recite to her soon-to-be husband, in a beautiful notebook that would accompany her to their ceremony. It was only a small example of all the meaningful things that would unravel over the next few hours. We have never seen so many special gifts given at a wedding. The groom received from his parents, an heirloom pocket watch that belonged to his great grandfather, along with a wrist watch and a special bow tie to wear from his bride-to-be. The bride was given and antique handkerchief embroidered with an “R” that belonged to Nathan’s great-great grandmother, from Nathan’s parents. Rachael’s grandmother gifted her a special family heirloom locket. The couple had specially made…

Wedding at The White Farm Bed + Breakfast, Brockport NY ♥ Casey + Samuel

It was so obvious early on, that Casey and Samuel were going to be a blast to work with. And ironically, they are our second couple who are both Pharmacists. We can’t even put into words how much fun it was getting to do their E-session, but we hope the pictures speak for themselves. If you have not seen them, you can view them here, and we recommend you do, since they were disgustingly adorable. Such a light-hearted and fun couple could have nothing short of a perfect wedding day, and despite a little bit of rain showers, nothing dampened their love on their beautiful day. And the rain clouds knew better than to hang around for long, but left them with such a beautiful sky for the back drop of their portraits that evening. Casey and Sam selected one venue for their entire day. The White Farm Bed and Breakfast in Brockport is not known for hosting wedding events, but the couple and the owners really outdid themselves to make this place one of our favorites. With the help of their friends and family they decorated it to be one of the most romantic places you could imagine. Casey and her girls readied in a beautiful vintage room, and the boys got ready in another room just down the hall. Outside the family set up the tables, with beautiful place settings, complete with table name cards, named after common pharmaceutical drugs. What a fun way to personalize their wedding tables! Christine Hunt of the White Farm, provided the flowers…
