Melissa and Dan got married at the White Birch Golf Course in Lyndonville, NY. Melissa is my niece so it was a pleasure witnessing and shooting the wedding. The day started early with the girls getting ready at Studio 11 in Albion, NY. It was a relaxing time and we had fun taking pictures while the bride and her bridesmaids were getting their hair done.
Here’s a shot of Melissa’s two sisters watching Lisa put on the finishing touches.
The hair turned out exquisite!
After all the hair was done we went outside in the alley and experimented with the camera and flash a little bit. I always love old alley ways and this one was no exception.
Here’s another in the alley with a lot of special “grunge” processing. I like how it came out.
From there we headed to the wedding venue at White Birch. They made a beautiful house available for the girls to finish getting ready in. It made for just the right setting for a shot of the wedding dress.
Melissa got some finishing touches on her makeup.
Then a kiss from Mom and Dad.
The finished product! Melissa was a beautiful bride!
Melissa and her sisters Heather and Beth.
The men arrived on a fire truck so I grabbed a few shots. Here’s one of Dan and his groomsmen.
And the girls.
Of course no wedding shots at White Birch would be complete without a shot in the trees.
Melissa and her flower girl Bailey look over the beautiful venue.
Dan’s first peak at his Bride Melissa as the ceremony starts.
Always tough for Dad when it comes time to give his daughter away.
Did I say the venue was beautiful?
Afterward we went into town for some quick shots with the Bride and Groom. This shot is humorous to me.
A beautiful August evening in Upstate NY.
Since we were at the golf course we snuck away for a few minutes during the reception to take advantage of the beauty of the place.
I’ll finish off with the rings and the cake.
Thanks Melissa and Dan for letting me be a part of your special day. I wish you the best in your future life together.
