I've been jumping out of my seat all day in excitement to share this blog with you! We have so many great photos from this day it was seriously hard to narrow it down!

The weather leading up to Dan and Katie's wedding day was very unpredictable. In fact, the day prior was torrential downpour all day! Thankfully, we finally got a sunny, comfortably and slightly breezy day. And I couldn't have been happier!

Before the wedding, Katie scheduled an Engagement Session with us, which I always recommend to our couples. It's a great way for us all to get to know each other, and for our couples to get use to being in front of our cameras before the wedding day. Katie also said she knew that she couldn't control the weather on her wedding day, but could choose a beautiful day for their E-Session. Which they did!

Here's a little sample from their session at Thacher Park:

Now let's get to these wedding photos... :)

Beardslee Castle is a gorgeous place for a wedding! There is a lot of great history with this place; it was built in the 1860s. Originally built by the Beardslee family, it was their home for 80 years! Now, not only is it a beautiful place for weddings, but it is a restaurant and bar. Go and check it out for dinner sometime - you'll love it. Oh, and did you know Ghost Hunters was there?
