Missy and Chris's Wedding

I can’t believe it! We have shifted from the summer wedding season into the fall. Compared to summer weddings, fall nuptials have a different personality. The tiny shifts that occur, with the change of the season, brings character to the wedding. There's no need to worry about being uncomfortable with summer's heat, but a feeling of relaxation in the air to be outdoors. Not only is there a change in weather, but there's an adjustment in the choice of attire, venues, a difference in décor, color schemes, floral arrangements, and ingredients used in food such as pumpkin, spice, and apple cider (which I love). 

We were very happy to begin our fall season photographing Missy and Chris’ wedding in Scottsville, New York. The wedding took place at a friend’s residence, who owned a beautiful garden area where the ceremony was held, and a charming barn used for most of the formal photographs. This location was very appropriate for the autumn theme of the wedding. The beautiful orange, yellow and red flowers that were featured in this wedding could be easily compared to the change of color in the leaves as fall approaches. It makes you think that the message this couple was going for was, no matter how the seasons change their love for each other will remain the same.    

Upon arrival at the venue, scarecrows dressed for the festivities that greeted everyone at the gate. Throughout the venue there were miniature pumpkins placed on top of bails of hay as table markers, so guests knew where to sit. The couple even had a cute pumpkin with their names carved into it. One tiny detail that I almost over looked was that they had their monograms hand stitched into a piece of their clothing. Chris’ name was placed on his tie and Missy’s name was on her sash. It was a great reminder throughout the day of the love that this couple shares.  It’s the tiny details like this that come together and make anyone's wedding day special.

Take Care,
