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!

A Sheraton Syracuse University Hotel Wedding | Melissa & Jerryl

Jerryl & Melissa became man and wife at the Sheraton Syracuse University Hotel a few weeks ago.  So many touching, beautiful, emotional moments today.  We started the day with the girls getting ready, we entered the room that was filled joy & laughter and we knew right then today was going to be so much fun.

After Melissa was ready she made her way to the hall of languages where her Groom was waiting to see her for the first time, with so many SU fans heading to the game cheering her on and witnessing this moment!  His face, the fans cheers, and the happiness in their eyes made a beautiful first look Moment!

As the ceremony began tears fell as Melissa’s brothers walked her down the isle to give her hand to Jerryl, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.  Her dad was absolutely looking over this beautiful moment in her life. 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!

We absolutely loved being there to celebrate your love and marriage, thank you so much for choosing us to be a part of your day.  We hope you love some of these moments captured today! Love & Appreciation ~ Cylinda and Chelsea
