Up against another human being one’s own procedures take on definition.

A second beautiful fall wedding this past season, the fifth wedding i’m showcasing on this blog in which I assisted Kristina from Photokisses. We drove out to Sodus Point to the beautifully quaint Carriage House Inn to photograph the girls as they were getting ready.  The colors were rich in their habitats and the atmosphere was ripe and crisp.

Amanda and Ken’s wedding was all about the details- from the handmade flowers, to handmade wrap scarves for the bridesmaids, to their original lovebird cake topper, there were tons of tiny tokens of love to capture, and we weren’t going to miss any one of them! The ceremony was held at The Red Brick Church which had actually been closed down, but they opened it especially for the wedding, which was also a treat, being a one room church with beautiful hardwood everywhere and a balcony. Then everyone drove two minutes down the road to their house which included a vineyard ( awesome for photos! ) and a tent for the reception.

If there was an award for all around best expression of love in a wedding, Amanda and Ken would win. Best of all, it wasn’t in their vows, nor the toasts made at reception, but in every choice that was made for the special day, regardless of whether it was choice of wedding dress (which was g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s and complemented Amanda’s style perfectly); or instead of flower boutonnieres, they wore tiny corn husks; or giving leaves to the flowergirls instead of petals. Each choice illustrated a part of the couple and their love for one another in such a deep way that I was emotionally moved beyond belief.
