Lakeside Wedding at Bristol Harbour Resort, Canandaigua NY ♥ Caitlin + John

Caitlin and John’s lakeside wedding at the Bristol Harbour Resort, in Canandaigua was the kind that fairy tales are made of. Caitlin reached out to us after being referred from clients who had recently gotten married. The irony was, that same client also referred us to another friend named Kaitlyn who also was getting married on the same day. After a few enjoyable chats with her, however, Caitlin got to us first. Kaitlyn, if you’re out there reading this, we hope that your wedding day was fabulous! Soon afterward, we got the pleasure of meeting John when we had their engagement session, by the same breath-taking lake. We really enjoyed spending the afternoon with them, getting to know them, and watching them kill a bottle of wine in record time. If you missed seeing their engagement portraits, you can look back and enjoy them here. Caitlin got ready in one of the adorable, little cottages on site at the resort, with fantastic views overlooking the lake. John spent his preparation time in one of the rustic rooms in the hotel. The gift of two fragrant, snow-white gladiola arrangements were sent to Caitlin on the morning of the wedding, which made the perfect addition to their reception decor. One of the most precious moments for a mother is being a part of their daughter’s wedding day. These radiant ladies looked so stunning, these portraits could not be passed up, before we headed over for the first look. We were taking bets (no, not really) on whether John would shed some tears…

Christiana + John = Married | Wedding Photography at Owasco Reformed Church, Emerson Park & The Springside Inn Auburn NY

Christiana and John’s wedding day was such a joyous event! Despite the heat and humidity that was present for yet another Central New York wedding, everything was perfect! The day started out with the bride’s preparations at the historic Springside Inn, that neighbors the beautiful Owasco Lake, nestled in the Fingerlakes Region. We were most excited to get our first looks at the bride’s gown that morning. A one-of-a-kind, custom designed gown, complete with an exquisite lace bodice, and a shimmery organza skirt. It was built for a princess, and made by the talented hands of designer and close friend of the bride – Bobby Goodrich. On the hanger, the gown was fabulous, but nothing could prepare us for how breath-taking it looked when Christiana stepped into it, and zipped it up! She paired her gown with a double-stranded pearl necklace, adorned with an antique brooch style bloom, that she hand knotted herself, to make that perfect accent piece. And she topped it off with a simple and elegant, vintage cap-style, birdcage veil. It tied her look together, and Christiana was glowing! Once the bride and her girls were ready, we strolled down to the grounds of the Springside Inn, where we took some lovely photos of them together. For a moment, with the Springside, and it’s beautiful willow trees in the background, it almost felt as though we had time-traveled back to a by-gone era. When we finally made our way to the Owasco Reformed Church, and stepped inside, it was very evident that Christiana and John had hand-selected…
