Lindsey and Dan had the most beautiful wedding day at the end of August!... which is always a good thing when you're holding your wedding ceremony and reception at a barn! As a Syracuse wedding photographer, the weather can be so unpredictable , but it couldn't have been a more perfect wedding day!
We found the perfect spot to hang Lindsey's wedding dress... on the porch of her childhood home built by her dad!
Cowgirl boots, burlap wrapped bouquets of lavender and boutonnières made from shotgun shells go perfectly with the country, rustic theme they had planned for their wedding!
The Bride, Bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride and Groom
Neither Lindsey nor Dan are strangers to hard work. If I remember right, they heat their house with a wood burning stove and so in her vows,, Lindsey promised Dan that she would stack fire wood with him for the rest of her life until she was physically unable to. I thought that was the sweetest, most befitting of things to promise her husband to be!
Lindsey and her dad also did a First Look! The coolest part of this story is that Lindsey's dad actually met Dan first and came home with stories of what Dan was like and how Lindsey really needed to meet him!
And now for this first look... I won't lie when I say that I might have cried a bit when I saw the look on her dad's face when he first saw his little girl. I mean, what girl doesn't want her dad to think she's beautiful... she even did a twirl for him so he could see the whole dress. I just loved this!
Lindsey's Bridal Portraits
I just loved the back of Lindsey's wedding dress! And check out all those awesome lights hanging from the ceiling!
You can't leave members of the family out... and Lindsey and Dan's dog Boone was no exception!
And of course Lindsey's handsome groom Dan!
The wedding ceremony was held just outside the barn on the lawn with the rolling hills of Lafayette NY in the background!
I thought it was really cool that the bridal party was made up solely of Lindsey and Dan's siblings!
