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

Meghan telling us about the moment, yes us girls all cried! So sweet!

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!

Thank you so much for having us document your wedding day!  We hope you love some of the moments captured!

A Greek Peak Mountain Resort Wedding | Cortland, NY | Emilee & Matt

Matt & Emilee became husband and wife a few weeks ago in front of their family and friends and celebrated at the beautiful Greek Peak Mountain Resort in Cortland NY.   About four years ago they met through a mutual friend from college who invited them on a weekend ski trip so celebrating at a Ski Resort was dear to their hearts and Greek Peak surely didn’t disappoint their vision.  The views were stunning, food was AMAZING, friendly staff and the grounds had a rustic charm.

Their elegant, bee/honey-beer theme added a personal touch to their wedding day.  Her fathers honey is the ingredient in Peach Buzz Beer crafted by Empire Brewery, and it was a hit!

From the moment we stepped into Emilee’s parents house there was a feeling of joy, relaxation, excitement and happiness.  Their wedding party and families were so sweet and we absolutely couldn’t have been happier and honored to have been a part of their wedding day.   Thank you so much for having us document this moment in your lives.  ❤ Cylinda & Chelsea

something old, new, borrowed, blue and a sixpence in your shoe! First time I heard about the sixpence! Emilee’s dad gave her mom a sixpence before their wedding, and he gave her one on Christmas for her wedding 🙂 ❤ Emilee’s girls seeing her dress and her in it for the first time!  “Emilee always sees the good in people, and always does things to make others happy” Matt said this is one of the things he loves about Emilee, and over the year I got to know her and she truly is a beautiful soul and one of the kindest people.
❤ We just love fun wedding parties!   Absolutely love how the one groomsmen is looking at Matt’s reaction to his beautiful bride coming down the isle!Emilee’s grandmother Ruth wasn’t able to travel from out of town but she was able to Skype in on parts of the day to see her grand baby get married.  ❤  Fun family formals!  An AWESOME group hug! ❤  What a gorgeous setting out back of the little white church they became man in wife in…A little obsessed with these! “I love that I can be myself around him (I can be dressy or in barn boots, I can be nerdy and “cool”, he let’s me watch Christmas movies on November 1st just because he knows it makes me happy)” Emilee These two don’t stop smiling but I am happy I got them to do a model/serious pose for this shot! ❤ ❤  Greek Peak Mountain Resort, Wedding, Cortland, Cylinda B Photography, Syracuse Photographer-100 Off to Greek Peak!!

A Dibbles Inn Wedding | Vernon, NY | Amy & Matt

Amy and Matt got married!! They celebrated at the beautiful, new, Cannary Building at Dibbles Inn in Vernon, NY with their family and friends.  Who knew that getting pulled over could lead to a lifetime of happiness!  ❤ 🙂 Seriously, sounds like something out of a movie but Matt pulling Amy over was honestly the start of their relationship a few years ago.

The day was filled with love, joy and laughter.  Their vintage/rustic theme was just beautiful.  Many laughs and some tears from speeches, and so much fun on the dance floor.  Today turned out to be better then they could have imagined and we are so grateful to have been a part of it.

Thank you so much for choosing us to be a part of your beautiful day. We hope you love some of the moments captured. ❤ Cylinda & Chelsea

Such a sweet surprise on Amy’s bouquet from her cousin(aka sister), Kara, in remembrance of her father so he was with her all day.  
Beautiful bride….So excited to see her groom!

Now this is a ride to a wedding!!
“I love that Matt is a very caring & thoughtful person” Amy “I love that Amy will go out of her way so that i can have the best day possible and knows just how to cheer me up” Matt

I think thinks holds true for many people in Amy’s life.  Her smile and laugh can make anyone happy!  She had us smiling all day! ❤ The Cannery Building at Dibbles in was just breathtaking!   ❤ ❤ ❤ Such a sweet Mother & Son dance.  Chelsea and I looked at each other and teared when Matts Mom handed her sons hand to Amys to finish out the song together.  So sweet.

Tailwater Lodge Wedding | Altmar, NY | David & Ashley

They first met in high school, they had the same 10th grade Biology and Gym class but they were just acquaintances.  It was their first month of college when a camping trip would amazingly change their lives almost 8 years ago.  In September of 2015 they went on a hike and David asked Ashley to spend the rest of their lives together ❤

Chelsea & I were giddy all day about this wedding day, their families, their wedding party, the BEAUTIFUL venue, Tailwater Lodge  in Altmar, NY, great/sweet speeches and mostly the love and joy these two have for one another.

I hope you love these moments captured from your wedding day! Thank you so much for having us be a part of this amazing moment in your lives, so much love and appreciation.  ❤ Cylinda & Chelsea
