Mandy and Bill: Justin's Tuscan Grill, Syracuse NY Wedding

I loved this wedding day. Mandy's small bridal party was so relaxed it never felt like there was a rush to accomplish anything. When I arrived to the hotel, they were talking and telling stories as if this was any other normal day.

But obviously, this wasn't any other day - and I knew how excited Mandy was, and that despite her nerves about being in front of people, she couldn't wait to become Bill's wife.

They had planned a day that depicted who they were, that told their story. Which, was in fact perfect, since it was a book themed wedding. From getting ready in the library of the church, to the aisle decor, bouquets and centerpieces, it all showed a piece of who they are.

They also incorporated a stop at the fire department, where Bill works for some fun photographs with the trucks and the bridal party. Showing us a little bit more.

But what really showed me who they are, is how they looked at each other. And how their affection for each other surpassed any nerves they might have had.

Once upon a time, a young girl met a young boy in high school. Years later, they reconnected, and eventually got engaged. And now, they're beginning their happily ever after. Congratulations Mandy and Bill! Here's to the next chapter in your story!
