Will & Kate | Fox Valley CC Wedding Photos

   Congratulations to Will and Kate who married this weekend at St. Christopher’s Church with a reception following at The Fox Valley Club, Lancaster, NY.  Leah and I began this day with the girls getting ready.  A definite chill was in the air, as Fall is here in all its glory.  Rain was in the forecast, so we were mindful of our timeline as the day progressed.  After shooting a few details, Leah raced off to cover the guys getting ready at a nearby hotel.  

   We met up again at Ellicott Creek Park for a First Look.  I don’t usually use this area since it’s typically very wet after a good rain, but it’s so close to St. Christopher’s Church, that it really didn’t make sense to go anywhere else.  It’s also unusual for me to do a first look so close in time to a church ceremony.  But it was important for Will and Kate to have a moment just to themselves.  They wrote their own vows, and used this opportunity to say a few intimate words just for the other.  It’s really the only time during the day they will be alone, and I think it was wonderful.

   Next, it was off to the church for the ceremony and family formals.  It began to sprinkle just as we finished things up, and I encouraged everyone to make haste as we made our way over to Fox Valley for creatives and the reception.  We ended up spending very little time with the bridal party due to the rain.  But, Will and Kate didn’t seem to mind a little sprinkle, so we continued on with just them around the property.  I would have gladly spent many more hours wandering around and exploring, but in the end, we really did need to stop.  Just in time, too, because not long after the sky opened up.  

   Dinner and dancing followed.  A highlight of the evening was a surprise flash mob put together by Will’s parents.  Later, during a break in the weather, we took the happy Couple outside for a night shot, then said our goodbyes.  Thank you again to Will and Kate for inviting us to take part in your special day.  We wish you all the best for the future!
