Mike and Rachel's wedding blog post is here! As always, I am excited for you to see everything that made this classy wedding perfect.
Both the wedding ceremony and reception were held at the Springside Inn in Auburn, NY. The girls got ready in one of their beautiful, historic rooms. (Check out , what I found its fascinating history here!) Once I walked into it, I knew I had found the perfect spot for photographing her wedding dress!
Rachel had all of her wedding details together when I arrived so that I could also photograph their wedding rings, earrings and bracelet. Their wedding invitations and Save the Dates made a great backdrop!
I always love it when the Bride does a "First Look" or a "reveal" to her bridesmaids! Their reactions are always priceless!
The Flower Girls
One thing I have been seeing a lot more of lately, is the groom having "Groomsladies" stand up on his side! In this case, Mike's Groomsladies were his sisters!
Their wedding ceremony was held in the gorgeously landscaped back lawn of the Springside Inn. I love the white birch "canopy" they stood under!
The Exchange of Wedding Rings
Bride & Groom Share First Kiss as Husband and Wife
One of my favorites from the whole day!
Introductions into their wedding reception at the Springside's ball room!
From introductions right into their First Dance as husband and wife!
I always enjoy watching the interaction between the groom and his mom and the bride and her dad. One thing that made Rachel and her dad's dance unique is that after slow dancing for a few minutes, they broke into a polka dance! So much fun!
These energetic flower girls literally danced all night long! What entertainment they were!
Andrew and I both so enjoyed our day with you, Mike and Rachel, as well as your friends and family! Like I said at the outset of this blog, after we had left you wedding, we looked at each other and said, "Now that was one classy wedding". We wish you both the very best and a beautiful happily ever after!
