Connections. This wedding was about connections for me. Kayla and Nick expressing their connection to one another with an emotional, touching ceremony. Kayla's mom being the art teacher for several of my past clients (both wedding and senior portrait). The love of two families that showed with a classic yet stylish wedding. Oh and they had a painter (!) to capture the essence of the ceremony (how cool is that?) at Hemlock Lake park, a place I've visited many times.
To fit with the timeless vibe, their reception was at Wingate Barn in Livonia NY. Prior to banquet halls and country clubs, weddings were frequently held inside barns. It only made sense that I captured part of their wedding on film.
The start of my coverage was at a cottage on Honeoye lake with the guys who, upon reporting a delicious breakfast and relaxing morning, were eagerly ready. The women were preparing at Kayla's childhood home.
