Not even a bit of rain on their wedding day could keep the smiles off of Pat and Sam's face. Welcome to their wedding pictures blog!
Makeup and hair were done by Hair & There... here's the owner Crystal doing Sam's hair!
Sam's beautiful wedding dress...
...and all her awesome wedding details!
Here is Sam's hair style totally completed! So gorgeous.
If you've followed my blogs at all, by now you're probably recognizing this barn as Wolf Oak Acres out in Oneida, NY! One of the nicest things about Wolf Oak, aside from having heat and air conditioning, is that in the case of rain, there is an amazing spot on the second floor of the barn where ceremonies can be held. I was so glad for Sam and Pat for that reason, because we certainly did have a few rain drops that day and held the ceremony inside at the fireplace!
We thought we could run outside in between the rain drops...
... but as soon as we got out there, it started to pour again. So glad we were able to get a few outside at least!
Now introducing the handsome groom Pat!
And all his groomsmen! In fact, one of his groomsmen had to be at a race that he ran in earlier that morning but thankfully made it with time to spare!
The sweetest expressions...
There's no better feeling than when you know you have the support and affirmation of your friends and family on the person you've just married.
The Wedding Party
Later in the afternoon we broke out the umbrellas and ventured out to the covered bridge that Wolf Oak has!
One of the best DJ's we have ever worked with is Jonathan from Paudano Studios! Jonathan introduced the whole bridal party but right before Sam and Pat came in, he switched the music to something sweet and soft and began to read a story. It was the story of how Sam and Pat met and how their relationship had brought them to that day. I don't think there was a dry eye in the whole place. Afterwards I said to Jonathan, "That was an amazing story, and word-smithed so well! Did Sam give you that?!" Nope!... Jonathan wrote the whole thing and surprised the bride and groom with it. I'm telling you, he made their reception amazing!
