Jessica + John :: Oneida, NY — Wedding

Happy New Year!! This year one of my goals is to regularly update my site with new blog posts of what i'm up to! I hope you enjoy :)

✽ Last September, I had the absolute pleasure of photographing a special wedding. My best friend's cousin, John, was getting married to the love of his life - Jessica. I've known John for many many years now so when they asked me about photographing their wedding - I was filled with joy! 

✽ The wedding was held at Wolf Oak Acres, a 180 acre farm in Oneida, NY. This venue is utterly beautiful and the ideal location for those with a "country romance" or "whimsical nature" theme. I arrived early the previous day with my second shooter Emma Johnson Photography so we could attend their rehearsal dinner and meet everyone. Upon arrival the morning of the wedding - it was great seeing everyone so relaxed and enjoying the nice weather Mother Nature blessed us with. With Autumn in the air - the trees greeted us with rich shades of orange and a blue sky perfectly reflected in the ceremonial pond. When came the ceremony and Jessica started walking down the aisle - seeing John's enduring reaction made my eyes teary. Seeing the obvious love between couples is one of my favorite aspects about photographing weddings.

The entire day was full of laughter, dancing, and love. To end the evening we all went outside in the field next to the barn. There - everyone was given wish lanterns to light and let go into the night sky.

Thus, ending a beautiful and joy filled day with the creation of their own constellation.

Thank you Jessica and John - as well as your family and friends for making me feel like part of the family! I wish you two nothing but pure happiness and a life full of beautiful memories together.
