Aurora wedding photos l Megan+Greg


Served up fresh on tap tonight are some gorgeous Aurora wedding photos! Congrats to Megan+Greg who just had a spectacular day at the Inns of Aurora!

Megan had to have her appendix removed two days after the wedding – so we wanted to bump this feature up on the blog and get her feeling better.  When she was driving back to NYC to get their flight on Sunday after the wedding for their honeymoon, she realized something wasn’t right and they ended up going to the hospital so she could have surgery. Hopefully these gorgeous Aurora wedding photos help them re-live the better parts of the wedding weekend :) I’m especially in love with the wedding photos we captured because the light and weather was just PERFECT.  In keeping with the season, they decorated with gold glitter spray-painted pumpkins as well as mums planted in white and green pumpkins.

They had a vintage Porsche which was just awesome to photograph the Inns of Aurora as a backdrop.

Are there any doubts why we love Aurora weddings so much?!

Here at C+W we always shoot with two photographers and here is an example of why!

They named each table after one of the finger lakes, and their guest book was a drawing of the lakes in the area that they plan to frame.

Britta+Naumann Maine Wedding Video


We are up in Kennebunkport Maine for this gorgeous two part wedding between Britta+Naumann. With a mix of Pakistani and traditional America this Maine wedding had one single focus; Naumann finally found love and it’s was worth the wait.

We were so happy to be a part of this Maine wedding, and can’t thank you enough for having us for the weekend.

This was our 3rd time shooting a Kennebunkport, Maine wedding and we cannot wait to keep up this trend! Such a beautiful place for us to shoot…

Aurora Inns Wedding l Karen+Mike


There is nothing we love sharing more than an Aurora Inns wedding! Even more-so when we get to share the wedding photos of a friend. Karen first came to me on the recommendation of her sister, Kris (from MOD), which meant I had to have this wedding. Kris and I have been doing weddings together for longer than either one of us wants to admit, and I know she has impeccable style/taste, so my expectations for Karen’s wedding were through the roof from the beginning. Once I found out the wedding was at the Aurora Inns (where I was married), getting ready would be at the new property, and got to know Karen…. well, I have no problem admitting this wedding was circled on my calender for quite a while.

I started off capturing some of Karen’s incredible details at the Rowland House

BIG props to Karen for getting ready in this main room with just gorgeous light peeking through all the windows. It’s an adjustment and leap of faith but she trusted us the entire day

We know we always brag about beautiful C+W brides – but c’mon! Next level stuff right here.

One of the many things I love about doing an Aurora Inns wedding is the gorgeous getting ready photo opportunities
inns-of-aurora-wedding-photographer-33
Karen and all the bridesmaids were looking absolutely stunning

Ok, ok, we have to make sure we give some love to Mike and the guys. My good friend James Bass was there to rock this wedding with me and I’m so glad he was.

Even though they had called for rain the entire day, and brutal weather, the sun actually came out for our first look wedding photos
inns-of-aurora-wedding-photographer-36
We did have crazy wind all day, I mean crazy, but I’ll take it if it means we get light like this all day! Just amazing creating Aurora Inns wedding photos with a couple like this on a day like this

After the portraits it was time to move down to the lakeside for the Aurora Inns wedding ceremony

Mike may not be quite as animated as Karen in general, but the looks he gave Karen during the wedding were priceless

Having familiarity with several people at the wedding always makes the reception more fun as I get to understand some of the stories/jokes even more… and all these speeches were terrific.

Once that smokin butta light started creeping under the cloud cover it was time to head out for our signature Aurora Inns wedding photos at sunset

If this shot looks familiar that’s because it’s the cover of the C+W facebook page!

Larissa+Jake l Sleepy Hollow Wedding Video


I suppose its difficult to link the story of Sleepy Hollow and the headless horseman to a wonderful and beautiful wedding, but as the leaves change and Autumn settles in it does sort of seem fitting. This being my first time at the Sleepy Hollow Country Club and in the area of lore that is the short story by Washington Irving The legend of Sleepy Hollow I know it was on my mind or to say “haunting” me all day. And I suppose the overcast skies and long shadows at dusk gave me the sense that at any moment the story could come back to life. How’s that for romantic?

Luckily, the headless horseman did not make an appearance and I can only say that this Sleepy Hollow wedding was a story of joy, heart and cheer. Larissa and her bridesmaids had more than a few laughs while getting their hair and makeup done, while Jake the guys got serious with a friendly game of cards. I’m not sure what the stakes were, but someone literally lost their pants.

This Sleepy Hollow wedding was nothing close to the tale of Sleepy Hollow but I can confidently say that for everyone involved it was legend. So glad to be a part of this Sleepy Hollow wedding story and part of a great team that helped put the story together.


Thank you both for allowing us to share your Sleepy Hollow Country Club wedding!

Whiteface Club Wedding Photos l Jennifer+Dan


We’re very excited to kick off the weekend with a gorgeous set of Whiteface Club wedding photos! Any blog followers out there will know how much we love Lake Placid weddings, the area is one of our all-time favorites. Add to that fact the beautiful Fall weather, and getting to spend the day with good friend Kristin Park (head of all things Whiteface Club weddings) and we know it would going to be an incredible weekend!

Showing up to this smokin dress certainly confirmed what we already knew :)
