Meanwhile, the groom and groomsmen were just up the road at Grace Chapel , which is also where we went to get detail photos of the wedding dress, shoes, rings and other things!

I just had to post this one of Andrew!... he had the great idea to hang up the dress!  He procured a ladder, proceeded to climb up on it, hang the dress, move it back, climb BACK up and start taking photos.  That's dedication right there!

Our first stop for pictures with the bride, groom, and bridal party was White Springs Manor, a property owned by Belhurst Castle in Geneva, NY.   As a Syracuse wedding photographer I've shot many times at Belhurst Castle but had not been to White Springs Manor... and it was BEAUTIFUL!

Aside from the beautiful inn with the pillars on the property they also had a vineyard which is also one of my favorite places to shoot wedding pictures!
