And so we meet again, with Kayla and Dave! This time, to celebrate their nuptials! Just a few weeks ago, we met up with these two for their E-session, and were able to spend some time getting to know them. It was really great to get that opportunity, and made their wedding day even more enjoyable! If you haven’t yet seen our blog post for their session, you can do so here: Kayla and Dave = Engaged
Kayla and Dave were really a laid back couple, and their wedding day went off without a hitch! Colleen, once again, had to have a chat with Mother Nature the morning of their wedding. Just as there was morning rain and thunderstorms the day of their E-session, the same thing appeared to be happening again! After a confident prediction from Colleen that the rain would stop and the sun would come out for the wedding, Greg laughed at her and said “Okay, Nostradamus!” Heh. That will teach Greg to doubt Colleen’s predictions again! Their day began and ended at the historic Oneida Community Mansion House. Kayla really had a gorgeous suite for her and her girls to get ready in! One of the most fun things about Kayla and Dave’s day was their “first look” session. It was such an honor getting to be there as they took their first peek at each other before they became husband and wife. Despite the heat and humidity, all of their guests entered the Big Hall to witness them exchange marriage vows during a brief, but moving ceremony. Following the ceremony, all of the guests assembled onto the side lawn for a large group photo, and bridal party and family formal photos. Instead of cake cutting toward the end of the night, the innovative bride and groom chose instead – a cheese wheel! They…cut the cheese… as they were announced to their guests for the first time. Go ahead and snicker, something tells me you’re not the first to do so. And this comes from the groom who told his photographers that he “didn’t want ‘cheesy’ photos”. A delicious sit down meal was served by chef Ruben Lopez and staff from Zabroso Restaurant & Lounge. Music to entertain guests for the evening was provided by Eric of Party Starters Events. Not long after dinner, guests wasted no time getting up on the dance floor, following the father/daughter, mother/son dances. Folks had no trouble enjoying themselves at this wedding! Including us! Upon packing up to go, we enjoyed ourselves a glass of wine before ending the night watching the fireworks outside, a few blocks away. Bully Hill Riesling is going to be our new favorite, thanks to Kayla and Dave.
We really had a lot of fun getting to share in your day, Kayla and Dave. Thank you, sincerely, for choosing us as your photographers. You, your families, and friends were so great to celebrate with! Wishing you both every happiness as you begin your new life together.
Le gach dea-ghuí,
(With all good wishes)
Colleen & Greg
