Wedding season began with a bang for us this year! Jessica and Keith's, oh so beautiful day was every bit as wonderful as I knew it would be. And honestly, what can I say about these two, and their families? We've enjoyed getting to know them all over the past two years, from engagement session to family sessions, to now the wedding day. They now hold a very special place in our hearts - we are so grateful for their kindness and generosity as this day came to be. A threat of rain hung over the week before the wedding, but on that day - not a cloud in sight. It couldn't have been more perfect. We arrived to find the girls relaxing and enjoying lunch - while the makeup artist worked her magic on each lady. It was so relaxed, we felt right at home with everyone! As we neared the moment where Dad got to see his little girl in her beautiful wedding dress, the emotions started flowing. It's so touching to be a part of that for a family.
So, we had a beautiful spring day, gorgeous girls in bright pink dresses, with spring colored flowers and a beautiful bride. Now, we head to the church, where the ceremony went smoothly and our groom gets to finally marry his girl. Then after some time with us at Skaneateles Lake, taking some photographs over looking the lake scenery, we were off to the amazing Welch Allyn Lodge reception. Everything from the centerpieces to the lighting showed nothing but bright colors and elegance. What a remarkable job everyone did in bringing all of those details together.
One of my favorite moments of the evening, came during the toasts. I'd say the only thing "wrong" with this whole day - was that Keith's best man, Carl, was unable to take leave from the military to be there for the day. Two weeks before the wedding, they learned that he wouldn't be able to make it. However, as the toasts were wrapping up, the DJ announced one more special surprise for Keith. Carl, had recorded a message for Jessica and Keith, which they played on projector for them. I know, it meant the world to Keith.
What a perfect day for two wonderful families to join together. And what a perfect wedding to kick off our season. Lori and I were honored to capture it. Jessica and Keith, congratulations on beginning your married life together!
All the very best, now and forever. ~ Erin
