The more I've been editing Carissa and Tyler's wedding, the more excited I've become about sharing their blog!

We were really happy to be back to Crooked Lake last month for their wedding. We love working there - Marty, Janice and their staff are always so great to work with! When we first arrived it was just starting to rain. However, what started out as a dark and rainy day turned into a beautiful, warm perfect wedding day! Just in time for the first look and ceremony! 

Carissa, Tyler and both their families were a blast to work with, from start to finish. Tyler is actually from my hometown of Salem, NY, so I was super excited to see some old friends in the crowd that night! Oh, and did I mention that Carissa also works at Crooked Lake? She's seen it all there, so you know we had to change it up a little and hit this one out of the park. See for yourself! :)

Here's a few of the pro's that helped to make this day special:
Hair and Makeup: Alexis Zadoorian
Bridal Gown: Angela's Bridal
Men's Attire: Men's Wearhouse
Floral Arrangements: Flowers by Pesha
Officiant: Steven Cordes
Ceremony & Reception Venue: The Old Daley Inn on Crooked Lake
Wedding Cake: Coccadotts
Reception Music: Metro Music (Patrick Bergeron)

So let's get to this blog! It's a long one, so get comfortable, and enjoy! :)
