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!

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 ūüėČ ) 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) ūüėÄ

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!!!
