A Hayloft on the Arch Wedding | Vernon Center, NY | Pat & Amanda

Although it was five months ago, it feels like yesterday we entered Hayloft on the Arch to a room full of girls excitedly getting ready for Pat & Amanda’s wedding day.  I still remember all the special touches and thoughtful surprises that brought tears to Amanda.  The windmill added to her bouquet in remembrance of her grandmother, the moment she saw people so special to her heart arrived and filled her heart, and the moment she saw her soon to be husband the first time that day- smiles so so big.

Its amazing how it was five months ago but going through the moments captured it feels like yesterday, the power of photography and its ability to evoke the emotions felt at the moment in time it was captured.

Enjoy the moments captured! Thanks for visiting ❤ Cylinda

I am obsessed with the first look!! Being married, I wish we did this, it is truly the most amount of one on one time you get with your groom on your wedding day! I always joke that I barely saw my husband on our wedding day (but its so true!) with the craziness of the day it is hard to stop and really spend time with one another!

Also you get a true reaction of seeing each other for the first time without worrying about everyone else around you and your reactions are in the same frame in the camera rather than separate photos.  Just love these moments captured during Pat & Amanda’s first look ❤ 

When its raining and your bride is totally on board with sitting down! ❤ #MYKINDOFBRIDE 🙂 hahaha I think someone stepped on his toe! 😀 LOVE kids in weddings! ❤ This outtake is a favorite! In love with the charm of Hayloft on the Arch!

A Sinclair of Skaneateles Wedding | Kelly & Jon

We had the honor to document so many love stories, high school seniors, children and families this year we wanted to share some moments captured throughout the year this winter with everyone that we didn’t have time to share over the summer!

We absolutely loved the charm of the Sinclair of Skaneateles venue in Skaneateles, NY.  There is so much character at this venue and a bridal suite for getting ready is a photographers dream.  And to top it off a beautiful couple, so happy, so in love, and with wonderful family and friends filled with so many touching moments just made this a perfect day.

The wedding was in June and I still remember the tears that fell when Kelly’s dad choked up trying to toast his daughter and son-in-law.  The moment they saw each other during their first look was so sweet, tears and laughter. The way Jon makes Kelly laugh, and how she makes him smile and the undoubtable love they have for one another.  Well that is enough from me, I will let the moments captured show their story of their wedding day!

Much love and appreciation! Cylinda B

We wish y’all a lifetime of happiness! ❤

Big thank you to everyone that helped make their day so wonderful!

A Colloca Estate Winery Wedding | Sterling, NY | Christie & Jeremy

Christie and Jeremy said I do in Sterling, NY a few weeks ago at the beautiful Colloca Estate Winery!  The weather was absolutely beautiful, and the day was filled with love, laughter, heartfelt speeches, beautiful moments, and awesome dance moves!

Thank you both for choosing us to document your wedding day.  We loved being a part of this journey in your lives and we hope you love this glimpse into your wedding day! xo Love and Appreciation ~Cylinda

I absolutely love first looks!! Why not spend more then 5 minutes with your groom alone on your wedding day?  It gives couples some time alone and to enjoy with each other before the craziness of the day begins.  Christie and Jeremy’s first look was so sweet.  Come on! Look how he looks at her!!! “I love Jeremy’s calm and kindness. He truly makes everyone around him feel important and special.” ~Christie❤ ❤ ❤  “I love Christie’s passion for helping people. No matter what people think about the situation, she will do what’s right” ~ Jeremy Mom’s ❤  I have to say Christie’s reaction when announced husband and wife is one of the best and sweetest we have seen!  SO SO SWEET!   Their fur babies!! ❤ Love all the details Christie and Jeremy made and put into their wedding day.   Christie did a brother sister dance, and we loved how excited he was all day for this moment with his sister! ❤
Remember Ali & Mark’s wedding a few years ago!!  Love seeing happy couples at weddings! haha love it!

We wish y’all a lifetime of love and happiness!

Dominican Republic Wedding | Punta Cana | Jill & Danny

We couldn’t have been more excited to photograph our first destination wedding in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic!!  Everything about Danny & Jill’s wedding was absolutely perfect, their love for one another, all their family and friends that came to be a part of it, a dreamy romantic backdrop for the most beautiful ceremony, and all the details put into their wedding!!

Thank you so much for inviting Steve and I to be a part of your wedding and inviting us in so warmly! We cannot wait for our next play date with ICEBERGS! haha  Hope you love a few of our favorites from your day ❤ Absolutely amazing from 1,749 miles away all the personal touches Jill & Danny put into their wedding day!  Is this not one of the most perfect backdrops for a wedding ceremony?!Jill you are absolutely beautiful!  In love with her hand made bouquet filled with so many beautiful sentimental pieces.  The shells were collected over the years, the pearls were her mothers and Danny’s sisters, jewelry placed on it from her mom, family and friends. And the turtles from her aunt, and flowers from her mothers best friend.  So much love and meaning in one bouquet, it really was so so special. Her Dad, so sweet ❤ Can I get married to my hubby again! ❤ 😀  Absolutely loved this part of the ceremony!  The Chinese philosophy on why the ring is worn on the ring finger.  Each finger represents people in our lives, we can pull apart each finger but your ring finger.  It represents our soulmate.  It really was beautiful!

Congratulations you two!!! Thank you again for having us be a part of your wedding day!! ❤

Tailwater Lodge Wedding | Altmar, NY | Lauren & Jeff

It was her parents 27th wedding anniversary when Jeff asked Mr. Williams for his daughters hand in marriage in November 2016.  A month later while they were out picking out the perfect Christmas tree to put in their home that year when Lauren turned around to find Jeff on his knee proposing to her to spend the rest of their lives together as husband and wife.  Two weeks ago they got married at St. Mary’s of the Lake in Skaneateles, NY and celebrated with their family and friends at the beautiful Tailwater Lodge, in Altmar, NY.

It certainly was a perfect fall day and an amazing way to end our beautiful wedding season!!! Thank you both so much for sharing your day with us, we loved being a part of your love and marriage.  We hope you love some of the beautiful moments captured. Love and Appreciation. ~Cylinda and Chelsea
Such a cool groomsmen gift! You are STUNNING, Lauren! ❤  Love this moment!  The moment Jeff was attacked by a fly…or bee? lol
❤ They are both blessed with wonderful parents that have shown them love, commitment, long & strong marriages and I am sure much more. Sometimes we just have to be goofy!   Joy
