DiCastro’s Private Beach Club Wedding | Sylvan Beach, NY | Lexi & Cody

Almost two  weeks ago Lexi & Cody pronounced their love & commitment in front of all of their family and friends at Holy Family Church and celebrated at  DiCastro’s Private Beach Club in Sylvan Beach, NY!

Their day  was filled with love, laughter, joy, and so many special touches and thoughtful surprises. I love how long they have been in each others lives and how close their families are.  I loved how many people helped make their day so special and perfect for them.  The in-between moments, the joy, the laughter and just an absolutely fun day.  And especially this couple, you can tell they are best friends, how playful they are, how sweet and kind they are to each other, and how beautiful they are individually to everyone around them.   Thank y’all so much for choosing us to document this part of your love story! Much love and appreciation ~Cylinda & Chelsea

I hope you love all these moments captured! ❤

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!
