We loved creating unique garden theme shower in January when it was snowing outside. We started by working with Jenny C Design on a beautiful hand drawn invitation to set the tone.

Moving onto Wedding Day!

A lot happens behind the scenes before a beautiful wedding. Trucks load in at Schuyler Meadows Country Club. We are onsite to make sure everything is exactly where we need it!

This day we also did multiple runs with the busses to make sure they were synchronized with the movement of valet guests vs. out of town guests getting them in between Sienna and Schuyler Meadows Country Club.
Practice makes perfect!

The morning of the wedding – Corbin Gurkin captured beautiful detail shots of sentimental items. baldwin 23 Baldwin

One of our favorite moments are from first looks with dad. There is something so special about the relationship of a Father and Daughter. When they see each other for the first time on the wedding day, something truly magical happens.

Dad is so proud to be walking his daughter down the aisle at the historic Sienna Chapel.

A vintage get away car is such a nice photo opportunity – but even better it’s a moment for the Bride and Groom to soak in the fact that they just got married!

*Coordinator Saves the Day: Little did anyone know while the ceremony was going on – Ali was outside the church dealing with a vintage car that wouldn’t start. Just as she arranged to have a new one brought down – the transmission turned over and the chapel doors opened!

The Grotto at Sienna held a special place in the families hearts – so it was only appropriate that we make a stop there for a photo shoot (while playing beat the clock with the sunlight in March!)

Meanwhile at Schuyler Meadows Country Club – the guests were gearing up for a great party in the tent that was custom built off the back patio of the club.

Today’s Takeaway: Don’t be afraid to host a wedding in March! The weather is always out of your control and unpredictable. Do not let that hold you back. There are things that can be done (tents, heaters, cute shawls). If you’re dream is March, if your budget is March, if your wedding is in March – it’s going to be beautiful!
