Cristen + Mick’s Summer wedding at RedBarn20 in Cazenovia, NY was just amazing! The setting at RedBarn20 is gorgeous, with stunning views in all directions. We started the day in the quaint farmers cottage, where the bride and bridal party got ready. Cristen and her father had the sweetest first look on the porch of the cottage, which allowed for a perfect setting for them to have that special moment. Cristen’s smile and positive energy lights up any room and her warm energy makes you feel that you are instant friends.
Cristen & Mick did their first look on the grounds under a beautiful oak tree….I LOVE & always recommend a first look! It allows the couple to share an intimate moment together while giving me, the photographer, more time to capture amazing portraits. Mick looked so handsome waiting for his Bride to be. You could feel the excitement building before they saw each other. Always one of my favorite moments of the day and these two didn’t disappoint.
The Outdoor Ceremony took place at RedBarn20 in front of the Main House which has been restored showcasing it’s beautiful Colonial Style built in the 1800’s. Everything about the setting, the ceremony & the couple were just stunning.
The reception took place inside the Red Barn. Every detail was perfectly suited for this elegant couple.
One of my favorite things to do is to steal the couple away for a few minutes during sunset or pre-sunset to get a few more shots, when everything is a bit more relaxed and the lighting is perfect. I just love these two! They were up for anything and trusted me fully throughout the day!
The evening hours are always magical and cozy at RedBarn20, with a fire burning in the fire pit, a blanket available to anyone that might be a bit chilly & lighting that provides the perfect ambience.
And could this sparkler exit be any more perfect?!?! So romantic!! Congrats to this amazing couple!!
