Happy Sunday everyone! I have been looking forward to blogging this wedding even before the wedding took place!!! This was my first time shooting a wedding in Seneca Lake and I was so excited.
I arrived early to the venue to walk around and the sun was shining. It was going to be a hot, but beautiful day. I walked the lawn to where the ceremony was going to take place and I was in awe of the view. I was even more excited for their day.
I arrived at the house where Brianna and her bridesmaids were getting ready only to be greeted by her Mom who was more than welcoming! After showing me around, we walked up the hill to The Lodge at Gist Iron Brewing where the guys were going to get ready. Before I knew it, the whole bridal party was greeting me. There was tons of laughing already – clearly everyone was ready to have an amazing day! I knew from that moment it was going to be a good wedding. And by good ….I mean great! There was so much excitement for the wedding and this is the best way to start a wedding!
They got ready at the Farmhouse, less than ten minutes away from the winery. Once the ladies were all dressed, it was Brianna’s turn to slip into her wedding dress. All the bridesmaids gasped once she was all buttoned up! Before portraits, Brianna had a first look with her Dad where she came down the steps into a living room where her mom, bridesmaids, Dad and beautiful daughter was. It was really perfect. We headed outside in the front of the Farmhouse and snapped some great pictures. Once I finished up with the ladies I was off to the ceremony site to get ready for the vows!
It was time to get these two married! The lawn ceremony had a breathtaking setting. They exchanged their vows with some laughs, happy tears and a whole lot of smiles. Once these two were official we were escorted into the Wine Cellar for Bride and Groom portraits. It was perfect! We walked outside to a small pond where we snapped some more pictures which some happened to be my favorite images of the day. After capturing the Bride & Groom, it was time for some photos down near the lake with the entire bridal party. There was a lot of laughs and a lot of fun! The reception was in the Cafe and you could tell the entire room could feel their love. Kristian was all smiles looking at his wife. This friend group really tore up the dance floor. The whole day was just a lot of fun and so special. Brianna and Kristian, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your special day. Congratulations!!
