On a Saturday morning in June, I hit the road with my gear and headed out for Skaneateles. Skaneateles is a favorite place of mine to shoot: there are loads of picturesque venues and it’s a pleasant and quick drive from home base here in Syracuse. On this day I was headed to the Frog Pond Bed & Breakfast. A small B&B nestled away amongst greenery, the Frog Pond is a tranquil location that can also host a rollicking wedding.
First, though, I met up with the boys at their hotel in the heart of Skaneateles. After the ties were tied, and jackets buttoned, Dan and his groomsmen enjoyed some beers as they toasted to the big day.
After a few photos with them I headed over to Frog Pond. I arrived to find Sarah calm and relaxed amidst the wedding morning frenzy. As the girls donned their dresses, Aubrey applied the finishing touches to Sarah’s flawless makeup. Then it was time for Sarah to hop into her dress and off we went to the Church.
Sarah and Dan had a beautiful ceremony at St. Mary’s of the Lake. It was touching and personal and quite funny! I loved watching the two of them interact with each other during the ceremony, sharing those small glances and looks that couples are known to do.
After a portrait session on the grounds of the Frog Pond, it was time to party. A tasty feast was followed by beautiful toasts and then hours of crazy dancing. It was a perfect summer day and I was thankful to be able to be a part of Sarah and Dan’s wedding. I wish you newlyweds the best in all the years to come! Enjoy the photos :).
