Alison and Jason’s fairytale weekend began Friday night with their rehearsal dinner at the beautiful Aurora Inn, in Aurora, NY. The intimate gathering of their close friends and family overlooking the beautiful Cayuga Lake, celebrated their love for each other. Wine, hors d’oeuvres, and a nice dinner was served with relaxing music provided by John Joseph of Caribbean Breeze Steel Band. A breathtaking sunset at the close of the evening provided a perfect backdrop for photos of the couple and their guests.
Their wedding day began with preparations at The Hilton Garden Inn, and the bride’s childhood home in Ithaca. Their ceremony took place at the spectacular Immaculate Conception Church, where tears of joy adorned the faces of their family and friends as they exchanged their marriage vows. Alison and Jason were surprised by the bride’s parents, with a special ride for their day! A baby blue Bentley was waiting outside the church for them to be chauffeured around Ithaca, complete with a driver! We followed behind them to the Cornell Plantations where we took some great formal shots of the bride, groom, and their attendants. And with one of the bridesmaids prodding, we ventured down to the Ithaca Falls, where we scooped up a few more shots of the lovely Mister & Missus in front of the falls and some swimmers. Their reception at the Lakewatch Inn was nothing short of magical! The atmosphere, that included live music from the band The Destination, was warm and inviting. Kudos to the staff at the Lakewatch Inn for providing the guests with such great food with a fantastic presentation!
Alison and Jason, it was such a pleasure to finally meet the people we had heard so much about! Your families and friends were wonderful to work with, and we thank you so much for allowing us to witness a glorious union, on such a beautiful weekend. May many happy days follow you into a long, and bountiful life together.
Le gach dea-ghuí,
(With all good wishes)
