Beth & Rob - A Hamilton College Wedding

A lot of my weddings take me west of Syracuse to the Finger Lakes region, but last month I had the chance to head east for Beth and Rob’s beautiful wedding in Clinton, NY.

The day started off with Beth surrounded by her girlfriends as she got ready at the picturesque Harding Farm. Once her hair and makeup were finished and she was zipped into her stunning Vera Wang gown, Beth spent a few moments having a very touching first look with her father.

It was then time to hop into the car and head over to Hamilton College. Here, tucked away in one of the campus’s beautiful little gardens Rob and Beth shared their first look. After some portraits of Rob and Beth as well as their family and wedding party, we all made our way to the Hamilton College’s chapel. Beth and Rob met at Hamilton College, so the fact that they were able to return and become husband and wife here was so special for them as well as all the guests.

The ceremony was lovely and the two shared their first kiss as beautiful golden light fell around them. After the I do’s had been said, everyone headed back to Harding Farm where The Dexter Lake Club band kept the party going well into the night.

Beth and Rob had such a wonderful day, surrounded by their closest family and friends at a location that was so near and dear to their hearts. It was such a privilege that I was able to capture these memories for them.

Congratulations you two, I wish you all the best in your new journey as husband and wife! ~Caly
