Our first session
I first met Ben and Nicole for our bridal consultation last year. They told me that they were in the planning stages of their wedding day and that their venue would be at the Jerris Wadsworth Wedding Barn in Caledonia, NY. I have had many sessions there and LOVE the beautiful grounds it has to offer. Ben and Nicole decided to trust me with their special memories and booked their wedding and engagement session with me that day!
A few months later, we met again for their engagement session and within minutes, I realized how amazing their wedding album would be! We had the most magical sunset engagement session at Linear Park in Penfield, NY where Ben proposed to Nicole.
When I first arrived, Nicole was in the bridal suite perfecting the finishing touches and we were heading down stairs to meet Ben for the first time for the day.
Ben and Nicole had decided to read each other their private vows before the ceremony but wanted to keep tradition with not seeing one another until the ceremony; so they picked a beautiful location on the grounds to hold this special Vow Ceremony. When they reached back to find the others’ hand, my heart just melted. Below are some of the images from their gallery of their Vow Ceremony.
Outdoors at the beautiful ceremony location of Jerris, after all the bridesmaids had walked down the aisle, the ceremony gates were closed and Ben was waiting to see his future Bride for the first time in her breathtaking gown. The doors open, music plays and Nicole appeared with her father by her side and they began to walk down the aisle.
Ben could do nothing but smile but anyone could see he was fighting back tears. His bride looked stunning and she was on her way to say “yes” to him, forever.
After the Ceremony, we went into family, bridal party and bridal portraits. After the formals are done, bridal portraits allow time for the Bride and Groom to enjoy a few moments alone with one another; well, with me nearby capturing these important memories! Bridal portraits were taken before Reception but we were able to go out near sunset to capture a few more, here’s a small gallery of just some of my favorites!
Can you believe how gorgeous their flowers are!? They were designed by Nicole but created by Sungrove Blossoms Florals and Events!
From the speeches, to the “Shoe Game”, to the decor… everything was perfect. Nicole and Ben had a vision and it came together seamlessly! The rest of the evening was spent dancing, mingling and celebrating their new marriage. Here’s just a few of my favorite images from their reception!!
What a fun and breathtaking day!! I look forward to seeing their love story grow older as the years go on, I know they will have a long and happy marriage!!
