Mike is a huge Lord of the Ring fan, all the guys wore gold rings on chains today!

O M G I choked up watching Mike trying to hold it together when Jamie entered the aisle.. Sweetest family picture.Cutest photo bomber 🙂  Loved the alternating colors!
Chelsea picked out when I showed her this picture that it looks like a lovebird flying up!!!! Beautiful! That moment Mike stopped and yelled to the DJ no this isn’t the right song….I was like OH NO not again! Then a upbeat song came on and they rocked the floor! ❤ Jamie shared the dance floor with her Poppop and Mother who were not able to dance on her Mom’s wedding day together to share the father daughter dance….Tears flowing behind this lens! So sweet! Sweet, beautiful and fun toasts! Happy Birthday Poppop!! ❤  Mike ROCKING the floor! Michael Jackson style! God certainly painted the sky beautifully for these two tonight.

A Ventosa Vineyard Wedding | Suzanne & Mike

The sun shined bright on this summer-like fall day at the stunning Ventosa Vineyards a few weeks ago where Suzanne & Mike said their vows in front of their closest family and friends.  Their day was filled with love, TONS of laughter, and joy! Suzanne hanging out with her best friend and daughters all morning getting ready for the walk down the isle and Mike tasting beer and playing corn hole at the local brewery everything about today was relaxed, fun and laid back, just how they envisioned.   From practical jokes, Mike’s goofy poses, and awesome dance floor moves Chelsea and I couldn’t stop smiling and laughing all day!

We couldn’t be happier for y’all and hope you had an AMAZING honeymoon!! Thank you so much for having us document today, we hope you love some of the moments captured!

Suzanne was absolutely stunning in her Pnina Tornai gown from Kleinfelds in NYC. ❤ You couldn’t ask for a better ceremony backdrop! 
Such a sweet moment when Mike started tearing up as his daughter and soon to be wife walked down the isle ceremony, made me tear up! ❤ So beautiful! The moment that made my heart drop, Mike says “I can’t do this, emotionally, its too much and started to walk away…I thought he was so overwhelmed with emotion he needed a minute (totally forgetting they told me about this!)  He comes back with this stool for their friend, Dennis, who was marrying them to stand on! 😀 Much Better 🙂
In love with these colors and dresses!!Beautiful kids these two have!!
These two are the cutest! We couldn’t have asked for a better sunset for their takeaway photo!   Thank you so much to everyone who helped make their day so special.

A Skaneateles Proposal | I am Getting Another Sister!!

In our every day busy lives it can be hard to meet people, but we are blessed with technology that gives couples the chance to find their soulmate. You hear it on TV, the radio, about friends or family members, and perhaps you have read it on my blog a few times about marriages of couples who are brought together from online meeting sites.  Here is another love story that began online!  Chris and Meghan met 3 years ago and had their first date at a Tavern, a day that would change both their lives.

Saturday was the perfect day in Skaneateles, NY.  My brother-in-law proposed to his girlfriend in the beautiful gardens of a gorgeous home and SHE SAID YES!!! We are all SO happy and excited to have Meghan as an official family member   and I am so excited to have another sister! We couldn’t be happier to be adding such an amazing person in our family “officially” :).  We cannot wait to see what the future holds for y’all.

Here are a few moments captured from the day! xoxo

As the ceremony began tears fell as Melissa’s brothers walked her down the isle to give her hand to Jerryl, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.  Her dad was absolutely looking over this beautiful moment in her life. They were married by Jerryl’s mom which also made the ceremony so special.  With there vows, a kiss, and a jump over a broom stick they were man and wife!

A Highland Forest Wedding | Sean & Brianna

The sun shined bright a few weeks ago creating a perfect day for Sean & Brianna’s wedding at The Skyline Lodge at Highland Forest in Fabius, NY.    From the first look, to the ceremony, and throughout their wedding day Sean kept Brianna laughing and smiling, they both just enjoyed every moment today!  We loved the details they put in to make their wedding day special to them, and the fall colors.  It had a relaxed feel that I know Sean & Brianna were hoping for and everyone just enjoyed the evening, full of cheer, love, and some Irish Dancing!
