Congratulations to Mike and Renee who celebrated their wedding this past weekend in East Aurora, NY. I first met this wonderful Couple back in early 2016. They had a vision of an intimate, backyard wedding utilizing their large property, which includes a barn, pond, gazebo (built by Mike) and trails thru the woods. A great deal of time and energy was put into making the entire day magical. As family and friends began to arrive for the ceremony, they finished putting the last details into place. Afterwards, we had a nice span of time for family formals, creatives and bridal party photos. I loved the laid back atmosphere of the entire day. Even when we were caught in a small rain shower, both Mike and Renee happily stuck with me for some creative posing. After dinner, dancing was next on the agenda, and neither family disappointed. Mike’s great use of up lighting throughout the barn gave a nice sparkle to an otherwise dreary space. As the darkness finally settled in, a massive bonfire (gotta love the country) was erected. Finally, sparklers capped off the night. Congratulations again to Mike and Renee and thank you for inviting me to be a part of such a special day. I wish you both all the best for the future!
