Congratulations to Mark and Kellie who were married this past weekend at the Hayloft in the Grove, East Aurora, NY.  Leah and I began our wonderful, sunny day with both Bride and Groom getting ready.  The getting ready locations were conveniently located on the property, maximizing my time with the Couple.  Mark and Kellie decided to do a First Look, which we staged at the nearby pond on the property.  This secluded location was perfect for such and intimate moment.  We had the Bridal Party join us in due course, before making our way back to the main house for Family Formals.  Scheduling a First Look really makes the wedding day run smoother; especially if/when unforeseen events throughout the day alter the timeline.  Mark and Kellie chose to have the Ceremony next to the house, under a grove of pine trees.  This meant welcome shade for all the guests on this hot, sunny day.  After, it was time for dinner and dancing!  While guests enjoyed the main barn, the ceremony site was transformed in preparation for the First Dances that evening.  Mark and Kellie’s vision for the event was the grove illuminated by string lights at dusk, and I think this was achieved beautifully.  We closed out the night with a few sparklers and said our goodbyes.  Thank you again to Mark and Kellie for inviting us to take part in your special day.  We wish you both all the best for the future!
