Wedding at Grace Chapel Skaneateles and Orchard Vali Lafayette ♥ Ayla + Christopher

In the world of wedding photographers, we always hope and pray that each couple will have a chance at perfect weather for their momentous day. Fingers crossed for that beautiful light that will make for the most amazing portraits. Mother Nature helps us with that by giving us either sunshine or a cloud softened light that flatters every bride and groom. But sometimes, even Mother Nature cannot compete with a light that comes from within. And that’s just what we had with Ayla and Christopher, as is plainly seen in their wedding photos. Back in December, we spent a fantastic day with them, in Niagara Falls, as we photographed their Engagement Session. It took only a few moments to pick up on the devotion and connection they have for one another. If you missed our blog post on that session, you can still view it here. After our adventure, we were very excited that in a few months we would be able to follow them along on their wedding day! The afternoon began with Ayla’s hair appointment with Stephanie at the quaint little Bijou Salon, nestled right in the village of Skaneateles. She selected an elegant curl infused up ‘do, which suited her perfectly. The sun was shining brightly, and a fantastic day was in store for the beautiful bride. After a quick trip back to the bride’s grandparents, an excited and loving family was found patiently awaiting her return. Ayla and her girls quickly slipped into their dresses and shoes, and out the door they flew to meet up…

Carolyn + Jesse = Married | Wedding Photography at Orchard Vali, Lafayette NY

We truly loved this bride and groom!  Their big day will always hold a special place in our heart!  Especially since we only got to meet them in person, three days before their wedding. Thanks to Carolyn’s loving parents, they helped us to get to know Carolyn and Jesse, from afar, since they live all the way in Oregon! The couple chose Orchard Vali, in Lafayette, NY, as the venue for both their ceremony and reception. When the big day arrived, Carolyn & Jesse couldn’t have asked for better weather! Their ceremony took place in the pretty gazebo, where their parents, who have been friends for many years, tearfully watched as their children joined the two families together in marriage. Following the ceremony, the bridal party and the photographers rode off in golf carts to take their formal portraits. The beautiful grounds outside the golf course, made a perfect spot for photos! A fun and energetic reception, full of love and dancing kept their guests moving, well into the night. We are so proud of all of love that comes through their photos, and happy for the love that this couple and their family shares. Congratulations, to all of you, and may only the best of luck, and good fortune follow you through your marriage together!…

Hi-Just found this trying to get to pictures on the website. It truly was a beautiful wedding and as Jesse’s Grandma DeSantis said “So much love, ohh, so much love” and it comes across in the pictures (they are truly beautiful). I cry every time I look at them! Thanks again for the memories, Teresa and Steve.
