We love summer weddings in the Finger Lakes. I mean, truthfully we love all weddings in that area, but especially the summer ones. The scenery is always so amazing, especially at one of our favorite venues; Heron Hill Winery.

Samantha & JP’s wedding did not disappoint. They came to us from Los Angeles because of roots in the area and we are so glad they found us. We couldn’t have asked for a more fun and attractive Bride, Groom and wedding party! We enjoyed time at the family cottage and got some great shots there including an awesome first look on the dock.

This day would never have been even close to as beautiful without the hard work and planning of some of our favorite people at Dolce Amica Event Planning & Design and In Bloom Florals, we can always count on everything looking gorgeous and running smoothly as well as flawless flower arrangements. Not to mention delicious food from Nolan’s on the Lake catering.

Oh, it's been too long! | Jenelle & Todd | Climbing Bines Hop Farm | May 26, 2018 | Finger Lakes, NY

What a busy 2018 wedding season! With all our good intentions we have fallen way too far behind in our blog posting as of late. That being the past 7 months! So over the next few days we will be posting some of Kevin’s video teasers from this past season along with galleries of Chelse and Paul’s images.

The first wedding we want to share is from Jenelle & Todd’s wedding in May at Climbing Bines Hop Farm & Brewery on Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes Region of New York. Such a cool venue to have a wedding or to just go to for a great beer! The owners and staff are awesome as well.

It was a great learning day for Kevin in so many ways. Mainly in learning, again, that drones do not love Seneca Lake for some reason. In an attempt to get a beautiful first-look shot we instead found ourselves retrieving our much loved drone out of said lake (thank you to some great neighbor friends for jumping in and grabbing it for us, and it even still works, not sure how).

Jenelle & Todd were troopers dealing with such a hot, humid day and hanging with us for all the shots we knew they’d love but having to sweat through it.

It was a day of great friends and family with hilarious as well as heart felt toasts. Adorable kids that spoke better in front of a crowd than any of us, and if we’re being completely honest made all three of us cry…just a little bit, with the things they said.

We hope you enjoy this as much as we did! And if you’re looking for a great place to spend a cold winters night or warm summers day to get a great craft beer check out Climbing Bines.
