Lauren & Manuel’s Taughannock State Park Lakeside Wedding

2014-08-20_0078I just love this wedding so much. I mean I love all my weddings but these two are really some of the kindest and most genuine people. These two met in Argentina where Manuel is from. I love how there were so many details incorporating that part of their relationship. I just love how excited everyone was for this wedding. That’s my favorite part of weddings is just seeing the joy and excitement. Not only were the people amazing…but the decor, the dress, the invitations, the flowers, the couple… all of it was just STUNNING and classy. I loved all the bright colors and details. One of my favorite parts was the hearts lining the aisle for the ceremony and reception. There was so many incredible ideas for this wedding. I cannot WAIT to share these pictures with you all!

Stephanie & Kevin’s Rustic Lavender Wedding

2014-08-12_0099This was such a beautiful and fun wedding! I just loved all the styling and details of this day. They chose a dried lavender theme and I loved how they incorporated that throughout the whole wedding. Everything was very rustic-chic and it all flowed together so perfectly. This was a really fun group together. They were all so supportive and excited for these two to get married. The reception was held at one of my favorite venues in  the Ithaca area at Lakewatch Inn. They had the ceremony overlooking the lake and we had the most perfect weather that day.

These two are such a great couple. It’s obvious they are a great match and really balance each other out. I mean and they looked so stunning. I literally couldn’t get over how beautiful Stephanie looked when I arrived at her house. I love the dried lavender crown she wore and her lace dress. These two were so excited to be married and obviously have a deep love for one another. I can’t wait to share the pictures from this day with you all!…Enjoy!!
