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!

Love & Appreciation ~Cylinda & Chelsea

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

LOVED this moment! David wrote a little note to his bride, it was so so sweet! ❤ “I love her smile & and her late laugh (she laughs at things later than everyone else, like when they’ve already finished laughing she starts laughing). I love that how hardworking she is and that she’s caring and loves her patients.” David “I love his sense of humor; he’s charming and he can make anyone smile and I’m very envious of that. I love that he’s good-natured, he truly appreciates and loves everyone.” Ashley When your shoes are this cute! Ashley is the cutest, sweetest person!Did I mention we LOVED this venue?   If you are looking for a rustic elegant venue for your wedding day!

Turning Stone Casino Wedding | Verona, NY | Jill & Doug

Jill & Doug got married two weeks ago at Turning Stone Casino and Resort and their day was perfect, it even rained at the right moments!!  Alone these two smile, but together their smiles triple.  Looking through moments captured throughout their day happiness filled my heart seeing how happy they make each other, they truly light each other up and it is captured throughout the day!  We couldn’t feel more honored that they chose us to document the day they vowed to spend the rest of their lives together and we cannot wait to see what your future brings.

Thank you so much for having us be a part of today! We hope you love some of the beautiful memories captured ❤ Love and appreciation. Cylinda & Chelsea


One of my favorite moments of today.  Doug reacts to Jill’s letter when he opened it, and the first line of Jill’s letter is noting what his initial reaction would be and he laughed so happily, we all did!  What an amazing thing to witness, a true example on how well two people know each other. I have the most beautiful brides! ❤  I am loving these first looks this year and becoming an advocate of them!! A wedding day is planned for 1 plus years and is over with a blink of an eye, moments and hours a blu.  The first look gives couples time to enjoy together before the craziness of day begins and gives us (as photographers) beautiful moments to capture. I mean look at the excitement on Jill’s face as she approaches Doug! Joy! Romance!Happiness! Cuteness!
Group HUG!! ❤  Another FUN wedding party!
One of my favorite moments from weddings!  The extreme JOY seconds after becoming man and wife! ❤
Not sure if they realized I was stalking them after the ceremony and got to capture this sweet moments!Jill and Doug holding their parents wedding photos then all the happy couples together ❤ The night before at rehearsal Jill & Doug shocked everyone with their surprise officiant, her Uncle Pat!  ❤ Love this moment I stuck around to grab ❤ So many sweet candid moments from today! ❤ God planned for Jill & Doug to spend life together a long, long, long time ago and Kim & Nick’s marriage played the part in the beginning of Jill & Doug’s love story.  Jill’s best friend Kim from high school and Doug’s best friend, Nick from high school were dating and when they got married they paired them up at their wedding to walk down the aisle together almost 4 years ago.  They knew they would hit it off!
