Oh, what a delightful day it was at Timber Banks in Baldwinsville, New York, as Arria and Greg embarked on their journey of love and togetherness. Being a wedding photographer, I’ve had the privilege of witnessing countless love stories, but there’s something truly special about this couple. I actually had the pleasure of documenting their engagement not too long ago, and it’s been heartwarming to witness their journey to this moment. Every detail of the day was perfectly planned, and I’m thrilled to share some of my favorite moments with you.
Arria and Greg couldn’t have chosen a more perfect venue for their big day. This place is not just a venue; it’s a haven of beauty and elegance that caters to every couple’s dream wedding. Nestled within a picturesque golf course, it offers breathtaking views that make for beautiful photographs. The best part? It’s a year-round beauty, making it an ideal choice regardless of the season.
I began Arria and Greg’s wedding photography by capturing the getting-ready moments. Arria was glowing with excitement as she got ready for the big day. Her wedding gown transformed her into a princess, and her hair was neatly tied up in a bun. Greg, looking equally dashing in his suit, exuded both confidence and happiness. Photographing this lovely couple on their special day was an absolute delight!
The couple had an intimate first look, and they were so happy to see each other for the first time! The two lovebirds spent some time together before the ceremony and went for a leisurely stroll around the venue. Combined with the stunning views of the venue, it’s safe to say that this first look was picture-perfect. I could tell that these two were absolutely crazy about each other, and I’m so glad I was able to capture this sweet moment between them.
Arria and Greg chose to have an intimate ceremony and invited maybe 15 of their closest family and friends. Their nuptials were held in the great outdoors, with pleasant weather and clear blue skies setting the stage for a sweet and simple wedding ceremony. The bride and groom looked at each other with so much love, and watching them smile during their ceremony was such a lovely sight.
I had an amazing time photographing Greg and Arria’s wedding. The venue offered breathtaking backdrops, and the couple had so much fun during their couples portraits session. The best part was that I didn’t have to worry about posing them. They just did their thing, and we were able to get some pretty wonderful photos of the newly married couple just being themselves.
After their couples portraits, the cocktail hour started, and we headed indoors for a night full of dancing and singing! The couple invited the rest of their guests to the reception, and let me tell you, they all had a blast! The couple danced to the music as they had their first dance as husband and wife. And as the day continued, Greg and Arria shared special dances with their parents and were elated to be surrounded by all their loved ones.
Greg and Arria had told me that they’d been together since college and wanted to buy a house and do other big things before they got married. And yes, they did it! They not only tied the knot but also managed to check off major life goals from their list. Today, they stand as a happily married couple, celebrating their accomplishments while cherishing their love.
Arria and Greg, it was so awesome seeing you two again! Thank you for inviting me and choosing me as your wedding photographer. I had a wonderful time and loved getting to know both of you. Congratulations, once again!
