Ellie & Donny - Lodge at Welch Allyn Wedding

Ellie and Donny celebrated their marriage at the Lodge at Welch Allyn but not before kicking off the day at Mirbeau Inn and Spa. Ellie spent well over a year designing and even growing many of the flowers for her wedding, she loved the wedding planning process and it certainly showed. A few of my favorite touches were the groom's cow spotted socks (he's a dairy farmer) and the dozens of tiny ladybugs tucked here and there in remembrance of Ellie's mother, I think Ellie should consider wedding planning if she ever gets sick of nursing!

Nicole & Kevin - Lodge at Welch Allyn Wedding

I have been to a lot of weddings and I typically see the same lovely traditions but Nicole and Kevin did something I had never seen before and it was awesome. Nicole's delightful grandmother was a bridesmaid and I hope this becomes a trend! It was a touching gesture and it was made even more special because we were able to witness the love her grandparents still have decades after their gold anniversary. I wish you lots of love and luck in your new lives together, you should be fine with your role models!!!

Sara & Anthony - Lodge at Welch Allyn Wedding

Sara and Anthony were married in Skaneateles and then celebrated at Lodge at Welch Allyn. My favorite moment of the day was when Anthony teared up when he saw his bride walk down the aisle. You may think that first looks spoil the drama of the "aisle" moment but Anthony's tears are clear evidence to the opposite. Another thing I loved was the generous amount of time we got to work with Sara prior to the ceremony...I am such a sucker for a veil!! You two make a beautiful couple (inside and out) thank you for including me in your happy day!

Laura & Nikolas - Lodge at Welch Allyn Wedding

Laura and Nikolas exchanged their vows on a chilly November day at the Lodge at Welch Allyn. They opted for a first look to take advantage of the natural light and I am so glad they did, the sun had set before their ceremony began. If you are curious to see what these two look like in warmer temps have a look at their mid-summer engagement session. Thanks for braving the cold and making the last wedding of the season one to remember!

Lindsay & Michael - Lodge at Welch Allyn Wedding

Lindsay and Michael were married on a gray day in October but that didn't stop us from bringing the color when we took a little detour into a field of wildflowers on our way to their Lodge at Welch Allyn reception. I just love it when my clients trust me and play along with my crazy ideas (thanks for walking down those docks, ladies)! Some of my favorite moments from the day were when Lindsay teared up as her father escorted her down the aisle and when Michael fist pumped all the way down the aisle after they were declared man and wife (so cute). I wish you many happy years!!

Lizzie & Andrew - Lodge at Welch Allyn Wedding

Lizzie and Andrew are brilliant doctors fresh out of medical school and headed to L.A. to start their careers but before they make that transition they tied the knot in a lovely ceremony and reception at the Lodge at Welch Allyn. Their day was punctuated with periods of severe thunderstorms. Those storms added a lot of atmosphere...especially during the ceremony when Andrew slipped the ring on Lizzie's finger and in dramatic fashion intense thunder rumbled through the building and caused all in attendance to laugh, proving that mother nature must have a sense of humor and she certainly has good timing! Don't ever let anyone tell you that rain can ruin a wedding day, it simply adds to your story.
