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! They played slideshows from their childhoods, love the reaction of Doug here. Don’t worry Chelsea and I, basically new Moms of Sons were balling too!  We hope that our boys will find a beautiful, kind hearted, loving wife like you have ❤    Beautiful speeches!
Another beautiful moment ❤ Do you remember Lindsay & Adam from last year!?!?  So amazing seeing them!! ❤  So talk about down pour rain at the perfect time!?! Thank you Chelsea for amazingly getting soaked so we could catch the down pour before the umbrella arrived from the awesome staff!!!  Why everyone should want a little bit of rain on their wedding day ❤

Thank you so much for visiting and big thank you to everyone who helped make their day so great!

Bayshore Grove Wedding | Oswego, NY | Mike & Cassey

Joy. Laughter.Personal Touches.Suprises are the things that come to mind when I think back to Mike & Cassey’s wedding at the beautiful Bayshore Grove in Oswego, NY on July 22nd.

These two just make each other smile and you see it throughout their entire day,  happiness, playfulness, laughter and so much love for one another & the overwhelming excitement to BE MARRIED!  Cassey was just so anxious/excited and was counting down the minutes until she saw Mike for their first look, it was so so sweet!

Cassey surprised EVERYONE (aside from me and the DJ 😉 ) with the surprise guest/ring bearer, Otto the Orange! The reactions were priceless!  And their day was filled with so many personal touches, one of my favorites was the cake smash poll! Moments below!  ( I think this surprised everyone just as much as Otto) 😀

Thank you both so much for choosing us to document your wedding day! We hope you love some of the moments captured.  Love and appreciation. Cylinda & Chelsea

Loved these invitations by Minted.comand just love hydrangeas…Beautiful arrangements by their friend Rachel.
Love her big sisters reaction to seeing her little sister and her speech at the reception….She just loves her to pieces! Beautiful group of girls! ❤ ❤ ❤ Loved her blindfold idea!!  And his reaction was PERFECT!What did you notice first about Cassey? “Her blue eyes. Other physical attributes… (Hey, I’m a guy) and of course her cheerful personality. I quickly noticed how fun it was to be with her, how much she made me laugh and how comfortable I felt talking with her.”  He took a 360 peak at his beautiful bride! So cute, hey, he’s a guy 🙂 Cassey is the cutest!  “I love her dedication to family, her drive to get things done… when she is on a mission, watch out! Her willingness to put everyone before herself and her unselfishness. I love her blue eyes” ~ Mike What do you love about your soon to be husband? “His honesty, loyalty and strong core beliefs. I love that he cares to do things well and to do the right thing. He is patient and genuine. He always helps me to find my way back from a bad mood or a rough day and I love that he can be silly and always make me smile.” ~Cassey The surprise ring bearer!!! Love their reaction, especially Jake’s! He had to be the biggest fan! 😀 ❤Now that is a first kiss!! “sorry, Mike but move over” Otto 🙂 Definitely a favorite ring shot ❤
Again, the details were great!!  Cassey wanted to use river rocks and give some tables a river looks as there first “impromptu date” was jumping into the river ❤ I do need to know if there is a story behind these chicken wing donuts?!?  They really smelled like chicken wings!OMG! Lookalikes!  Fun speeches!  Laughed so hard during Pop Tarts Speech!
Now THIS.IS.A.CUTTING.CAKE.MOMENT!  OMG  we didn’t see the cake smash poll resulting this amazingly! 🙂  A rainy cloudy day cleared up just in time for their takeaway shot!! ❤ ❤ ❤  Thank you so much for visiting! Feel free to follow us on Instagram and Facebook !

The Lodge at Welch Allyn Wedding | Skaneateles,NY | Monica & Max

Four years ago Monica & Max went on a blind date, and they instantly connected and began their adventure together. Three years later Max proposed at the Sonnenburg Gardens, a place that held a special place in Max’s and his families heart.   He asked her to be is wife in the Italian Garden area and about a year later on July 8th they became husband and wife in front of all of their family and friends at the stunning Franciscan Church of Assumption in Syracuse.   So many beautiful details went into their day and Monica and Max just enjoyed every moment.

The celebration continued at the beautiful Lodge at Welch Allyn, and they never cease to amaze me with their coordination, beautifully decorated venue, and delicious food!  Brian from Visa Versa Entertainment topped off the venue with gorgeous lighting and an amazing display of the Syracuse Orange colors and logo that holds a special place in Max’s and their family and friends hearts!  Monica and Max were just over the moon with his creation!

I met Monica and Max at Sydney & Owens wedding in 2015.  Monica was Sydney’s maid of honor and I just fell in love with her that day so when they asked me to document their marriage I was over the moon!  They are just one of those couples you can sit and chat and hang with for hours.  My husband and I loved seeing them each time over the past year!  Thank you both for choosing us to document this special moment in your lives, we just loved being there! I hope you love some of the moments captured from your wedding day! ❤ Cylinda & Chelsea

Monica was an absolutely stunning bride!!! Beautiful inside and out. And I don’t think I have ever seen a bride so laid back on a wedding day.  She, like all of us brides, put a lot into the details and wanted everything to flow great, but in the moment of the day, things that didn’t go according to plan didn’t phase her….Even a ripped wedding gown didn’t cause her to blink, she just went with the flow and took in each moment and enjoyed it! My kind of bride! ❤

“I love her ability to make me laugh. She’s caring and has a really good heart. She’s a good person” ~Max

Handsome groom!

“I love his determination and drive. He’s sweet and caring and funny (sometimes)” ~ Monica  Oh he had her full of smiles and laughs today ❤

❤ ❤ ❤ Brought me back to when my dad saw me ❤

Giving his daughter away to a Man he couldn’t picture her without.  His speech was so beautiful at the wedding!

One of my favorite moments to capture! Love the happiness of couples on that walk back down the aisle!!

Fun group! ❤ ❤ ❤  Love the Lodge! Amazing details they put into their day.

Monica and Max were over the moon with how this turned out! Great job Brian at Visa Versa Entertainment!

Sterling NY Wedding | Tiffany & Kyle

Four and a half years ago Tiffany & Kyle were out fishing at the same time on a long wooden dock.  Tiffany baited her hook, swung back her line, and caught herself the man of her dreams, literally!!! Kyle had to get 3 stitches, but it was well worth it because he got the love of his life in return!  ❤ Now this story is one for the books!!! ❤

Kyle and Tiffany were married a few weeks ago in Sterling, NY.  They share a love of running, which was incorporated throughout their wedding day.  A REAL passion for running-they ran the Mountain Goat the following day!!! From all the unique & creative details, to running their first mile as husband and wife it was a wedding we loved witnessing and being a part of.  Cylinda met Tiffany & Kyle 3+ years ago when they all worked at the Olive Garden and she always loved them together so we couldn’t have been more honored to be chosen to document their first day as husband and wife!!!

Here are a few moments from their wedding day! Thank you both for having us document your love story! Love and Appreciation ❤

What an awesome bouquet!! Flowers from Solawoodflowers.com and put into bouquets by Tiffany!

Isn’t she the cutest! ❤ 

Tiffany teared up in the car just seeing Kyle from behind moments before coming face to face with each other for the first time today.  Such a sweet first look.  Just loving these moments. 

#solemates ❤ 

Just in time for some romantic rain shots! 

Then it started pouring, but that wouldn’t hinder the joy of today!

Just a few #funfamilyformals ❤ 

So many cute & creative details went into their day.  Tiffany and Kyle made all of the clay shoe centerpieces together! So sweet. 

And the BEST pizza from Toss ‘n’ Fire

After their first kiss as husband and wife they took their first mile run as husband and wife! Such a perfect day! Thank you for visiting, follow us on Instagram and Facebook and thank you to everyone who helped make their day special!
