I hope everyone is enjoying this amazing spring weather. The wedding season has officially started and I’ll be posting this season’s weddings on a little more regular (and hopefully timely) basis. Meanwhile, I’ll continue posting a few weddings here and there from my 2012 season. Here’s a gorgeous wedding from 2012. Meghan and Brian decided to have a wedding retreat in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of NY. What better excuse for a road trip!? I was joined by Larry Sherrell who proved to be about as good a travel partner as possible. We had our own cabin with this view greeting us each morning. We even had a chance to stop off in Syracuse for a little Dinosaur BBQ before making it to the rehearsal dinner boat cruise on Keuka Lake.
I picked a few favorites from the wedding day. I hope you enjoy!
The stunning view from the ceremony and reception tent:
The ceremony and reception were held at the Esperanza Mansion seated at the top of Keuka Lake.
The boys rented a cottage on Esperanza’s property to use as their personal retreat. Larry hung out with the guys while I stayed with Meghan and the girls.

The rolling hills and trees around Keuka Lake provided an amazing backdrop for photos.
Meghan and Brian decided to take a quick trip with the bridal party to one of the local wineries that line the lake. Here’s one of my favorites from the winery:
Talk about a gorgeous spot for a ceremony.
The beautiful bride:
Such a happy and joyous ceremony.
Brian’s mother checking out the new bling!
Guests were treated to a shady tree and drinks on the lawn over looking the beautiful lake.
Just behind the mansion’s main building, they set up an immense tent to house the evening’s dinner:
During a quick break between courses we snuck outside for a few shots in the sunset.
The party moved inside for what proved to be an INSANE night of dancing!
Meghan’s father has perfected the art of the headstand. Impressive.
The band received some accompaniment from some of the groomsmen.
Meghan shredding it!
A big thank you to Meghan and Brian for inviting us to Lake Keuka to share such a special place and allowing us to capture such a beautiful day!
