I met Maggie and Adam via FaceTime, as I live in CNY
and they live in Chicago.
I got so excited when they told me their vision of their special day.
The plan was a destination wedding right here in Syracuse.
Their close friends own an incredible property south of the city
and they would be hosting the celebration.
I have to tell you how amazing it was to see it all come together.
It was evident, in all the preparations, just how kind, gracious and loving this couple is.
How they truly value their friendships and family members.
They stated more than once, how they wanted all of them to be at the forefront of their day.
And each person there had a share in helping to make it even more magical.
From the ceremony procession through the woods
with all the guests in tow,
lead by a banjo playing friend.
To the heartfelt words of affection spoken at the reception dinner,
while guest lounged on colorful serapes and dined on wildflower adorned pallet tables.
Each detail made this day extra special.
And to top it off...there were pyrotechnics people!!
I mean, does it get any better?!
Huge thank you to Maggie and Adam for treating me more like a guest than a hired professional!
Thank you, thank you for being so sweet and considerate.
Thanks too to my second shooter Michelle Frederick Photography
and my assistant Jamie Wheatley, who is always a lifesaver and has the best ring shot ideas, lol.
And now for a sneak peek into the awesomeness...
