Wedding: Tyler + Kelly

Despite the wedding restrictions still in place here in NY, Tyler and Kelly joyfully tied the knot this past Saturday surrounded by their close friends and family. Kelly wore a permanent smile on her face the whole day. She was stunning and her girls could not stop “oo-ing and ahh-ing.” Kelly’s sisters and friends who were in her wedding party were a dream – sweet, bubbly, expressive, cooperative, and not to mention gorgeous. I loved being with them.

I wasn’t there to photograph the guys getting ready, but Tyler and his guys were top notch as well. The guys were not only cooperative (a photographer’s dream) but also funny, down to earth, a ton of fun, and made Tyler smile lots and look comfortable. Way to go, guys – you did your job perfectly.

Their reception was held at her mom’s house. They had a beautiful tented reception in the back yard. Nolan’s Rentals did a fabulous job as always and the food! Oh my goodness, brides – you should hire Root Catering because the food and the service was all aces. I highly recommend!

Tyler and Kelly – I’m so happy to have been a part of your gorgeous day. I couldn’t have been happier not only for the amazing fall colors we got for your backdrop but also for the love that I saw each of you have for the other. I know that you both have found the one your soul loves forever. I wish you all the best and a forever of love and adventure together.

Wedding: Will + Marisa

Will and Marisa were married this past Saturday at the always gorgeous Woodcliff Hotel in Victor NY. They, like all other couples planning weddings this year, had to change their plans up. But their wedding day was absolutely beautiful nonetheless. I had the great pleasure of shooting Will’s brother’s wedding two years ago. (See it here) I love it when I get to work with the same families again – it feels familiar and I love that I get to tell different chapters of their stories through photography.

Their small outdoor ceremony was so sweet and was followed by a very small family dinner. I get to join them again next year for their big reception to celebrate with all their family and friends. Marisa and her girls all wore matching Friends tanks and we even found a fountain to get some cute pics in front of. She was clam and lovely the whole day. Will and his guys were a blast. They were easy to work with, fun, and laid back.

Right after the ceremony started, one rouge cloud sprinkled rain on everyone for about a minute. But everyone laughed a bit and carried on because it was clear how happy everyone was for them.

I wish you two all the love and happiness in your marriage together! You have quite the story to tell about how you chose to say “I do” during a crazy pandemic. And even though it looked different then expected, you walked through it together with smiles on your faces because love is worth it despite all the bumps in the road, all the plan changes, and everything that gets thrown your way. Congratulations!
