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!
Toasts!!  “I love that Meghan is extremely easygoing and is kind to everyone she meets. She is a very hard worker and always willing to help anyone that needs it. I love laughing and being goofy with her” ~ Chris“I love his sense of humor and sense of adventure! Chris is very thoughtful and does little things to show he loves and appreciates me.” ~ Meghan The ring!!Luca is excited about getting another Aunt!! ❤  Proposal, photographed, Skaneateles Engagement, Syracuse Wedding Photographer, Cylinda B Photography-12

Country Engagement | The Farm | Emilee & Matt

They met through a mutual friend from college who invited them out to ski one weekend at Labrador Mountain over four years ago.  He noticed her blonde braided hair and bright red snow pants, and she noticed his “fancy moves” on the slopes (Emilee says she thinks he was showing off for her 🙂 – not sure if he admits it 😉 ) After the trip they connected via Facebook and kept in touch, they planned another trip skiing with both of their best friends.  When Emilee’s friend had to cancel, Matt told his friend (and soon to be Best Man) that he wasn’t able to come 🙂 ❤ So this turned into their first date!  Dollar taco’s and two Dollar Margaritas a few days after Valentines Day, is now a yearly tradition! ❤  Since that night they talked every day and in August they will become husband and wife!

Emilee and Matt share a love for the outdoors, hiking, skiing, four wheeling etc!  When they first started dating Matt would take Emilee for a four wheeler ride to see the sunset ❤ and it became something they would do together often so we had to incorporate that in their engagement!  I had so much fun with y’all at The Farm!  Thank you for choosing us to document this moment in your lives! We cannot wait for your wedding day!! ❤

“I love her fun, crazy energy and that she always wants to do something. Emilee always sees the good in people, and always does things to make others happy. She makes me want to be a better person” ~Matt

I love his motivation to be better in everything he does. 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) and he still loves me despite my flaws” ~Emilee ❤ ❤

Syracuse Engagement | The Farm | Sean & Brianna

She was out for her birthday with her sisters, sent on a “scavenger hunt” by Sean going to three different locations to celebrate!  They ended at Kelly’s Bar & Restaurant where Sean was awaiting Brianna’s arrival.  She entered Kelly’s to find Sean standing there, he got down on a knee and asked her to be his wife!!  He had arranged all of their family and friends to be upstairs to celebrate right after…”So thankfully she said YES!” Sean says 🙂  Love how much thought and preparation he put into his proposal, so sweet!

The evening was filled with laughter with these two at The Farm last week for their engagement session!  Thank you both for coming out, I loved getting to know you more and cannot wait to witness y’all say I DO! ❤ Here are a few moments captured from your session.

We had to include their fur baby for a few shots…

They genuinely make each other so happy, just loved how much fun they have together.

Skaneateles Lake Engagement | Lauren & Jeff

He first noticed her infectious smile and she loved his sense of humor the day they met through mutual friends, 5 years ago.   On December 3rd after finding that perfect Christmas tree Jeff got down on one knee and asked Lauren to be his wife and they will say I DO come October!!

I fell in love with this proposal as this too is has been an annual tradition of my husband and I’s!  I knew from the moment I met these two that I had to be a part of documenting their love story!! They truly are best friends, they share so many of the same interest, have a love for traveling, snowmobiling, golf, family/friends, camping and most of all a beautiful love for each other.

What a beautiful way to start my Spring engagement season at Skaneateles Lake.   Here are a few moments captured from their engagement session! ❤ Thank you so much for having us be a part of your love and marriage! ❤ Cylinda B

Village of Baldwinsville Engagement | Melissa & Jerryl

On November 5,  2011 they both were at a collage party.  He spotted her from across the room and knew he had to talk to her but couldn’t get up the nerve right away.  However, with some encouragement from friends Jerryl worked up the courage to introduce himself to Melissa, the girl with a smile he noticed immediately, the girl he had to meet.  A casual pizza date, with hours of conversation later they connected and their relationship began.

Just over five years later on December 22, 2016, it was a wintery day in NYC, all the storefronts were decorated for the holidays and the city was lit with millions of lights.  They walked hand in hand through Central Park talking about their upcoming years aspirations, goals, and talked about doing a bucket list.  Sitting on a bench in Central Park Jerryl then told Melissa that wherever they may travel or anything they will do in life that he wants to always do it together.  He got up off that bench and down on one knee and asked her to marry him!! ❤ ❤

Isn’t that just a sweet sweet love story? I am so excited to have a small part in telling it for these two genuine, loving souls.  The morning of their engagement session was filled with laughter, joy, and love.  I thought it was fitting to start it off with a walk through the park to reminisce that day in Central Park ❤

Thank you so much for choosing us to be a part of this new adventure in your lives! Here are a few moments captured! xo Cylinda

A Syracuse Winter Engagement | The Farm | Ashley & David

They sat in the same room in their 10th grade biology class, then next to each other in study hall their senior year of high school but they were just acquaintances. They had no idea that they were each others soulmate.  A few years later they ended up traveling together to his camp together (talk about fate!! ❤ ) with a mutual friend Ashley met in college. This would be the weekend they noticed each other outside of an acquaintance, this would be the weekend they would give in to fate, 3rd times a charm! 🙂  This year Ashley & David will become man and wife and live life’s journey together forever and we couldn’t be more excited to see them say I DO.

I cannot express how much fun it was to get to know you two!  The way you both  look at each other and bring joy to each other, and the way you love each other is absolutely beautiful to see and document!  Here are some moments captured, hope you love them and I cannot wait until your wedding day!

Syracuse Engagement | The Farm | Jamie & Michael

Over six years ago Michael was shown a photo of Jamie by a friend and he immediately wanted to meet her.  Shortly after through mutual friends they were introduced and Jamie noticed Michael’s fun and inviting personality, “and his dance moves were hard to miss.” 🙂

In 2015 they got engaged in Cape Cod and this year they will become man and wife in front of their sweet baby girls, family, and friends!

What a picture perfect snow day for their engagement session at The Farm!  I loved getting to know y’all more and seeing the love and joy you bring to each other.  We cannot wait until the fall! ❤ Cylinda B
