Starting from the minute we arrived at Shauna's parents' home, we knew this would be a fun day, filled with great people. The ladies were already dressed and gorgeous. Everyone seemed relaxed and ready to enjoy the day. After a few group photographs, we headed off to the Church of the Most Holy Rosary, in Syracuse NY. From near and far, their family and friends came to witness and celebrate their marriage with them. The love in the church surrounded and included everyone.
And for only the second time in my wedding photography career, I was "called upon" by the officiant to capture the view from the altar. Now, normally we follow the rules. We don't use our flash during the ceremony and we definitely, always, every time - stay off of the altar. But when a priest stops the ceremony and asks you to come up onto the altar and take a photograph - you don't ask questions, you just follow directions.
After the ceremony, we headed over to Onondaga Park at Hiawatha Lake, for some family and bridal party photographs. Then the reception was held at The Sheraton Syracuse University Hotel, and was a beautiful affair. The navy blue and white decor was beautiful and completely elegant, perfect for Kyle and Shauna. After the cocktail hour, the party got underway and the night was spent celebrating a great couple. Just the way it's supposed to be.
Congratulations Kyle and Shauna, and thank you for being you. You're a wonderful couple, and deserve nothing but the best in all of your future endeavors together.
All the best ~ Erin
