Blush and Gray Wedding

Aug 9, 2016

A Blush and gray wedding looks good any day, but the combination of finger lakes ease and creamy images on film that really make it shine. It was so beautiful, with a ceremony under a canopy of trees and a dance the night away party. It all took place at Emerson Park Pavilion, a favorite lakeside venue outside of Syracuse in Auburn, New York.

Meggie and Andrew are the genuine souls who said I do and wed in these perfect colors. They invited family to join them on the lake not far from the family lake house Meggie spent many summer days enjoying. For Andrew’s family, that meant traveling from Ireland to this tiny corner of New York; while Meggie and Andrew call Brooklyn home, Ireland is where Andrew grew up.

A truly international affair, it was a wedding not just about these two wonderful people, but their guests. Their priority was for everyone to have the best time celebrating and they did so with the help of Lovewell, one of my favorite wedding planners in the area. It was a wedding I loved being a part of (and I may say that often, but it’s absolutely true) and I’m so thankful to have joined Meggie + Andrew to document a day they will remember forever.

Flowers on film just can’t be beat. I love the creamy tones captured on my Contax 645 with Fuji 400. Also, how can you not love this bride? Meggie you are like sunshine!

Meggie’s Monique Lhuillier dress was an expertly crafted lace A-line gown. Getting ready at the Hilton in Auburn gave us the perfect windows and light for these images!

Meggie + Andrew didn’t have a first look, but we had fun taking lots of pictures with the girls on the other side of the park before the ceremony. Afterwards, we gathered for formal photos and a few bridal party shots, but keeping the list short gave Meggie + Andrew some time at cocktail hour with their guests.

Emerson park is stunning! Even though rain looked like a possibility the ceremony was able to be held outdoors under a canopy of trees that made a perfect aisle.

Lakeside weddings are so beautiful and there are so many different finger lake wedding venues to choose from! The sunset sky even went well with the blush and gray wedding colors.

Inside Emerson Park Pavilion there is basically a blank canvas for you to design the perfect set up for your wedding reception. I love the long center table for the bridal party and guests and the flower runner that ran the length of that long table.

The dancing started off right away and went through the night – with a few breaks for eating + toasts of course. The band Joey Scott & the Connection did an awesome job!

I hope you enjoyed a few of my favorites from this beautiful blush and gray wedding day! Meggie and Andrew I’m so happy for both of you – and I could be wrong but I think for someone who does not enjoy taking photos it might have been slightly enjoyable?
