What an amazing wedding from the Inns of Aurora! As we’ve shared on here many times, the Inns of Aurora are incredibly special to us. It’s where my husband and I were married, and our youngest daughter is named Aurora after the town. Our house may someday charge admission as a Mackenzie-Childs museum. So it’s always a pleasure to go back to shoot, but especially so with Caroline+Matt’s over-the-top epic wedding. You’ll see why below.

Matt and Caroline met one of the first days of Cornell orientation, in the fall of 2007. They sat a few seats away in their freshman discussion group of their college, the School of Industrial and Labor Relations. Caroline sporting J-Crew and listening intently; Matthew wearing Birkenstocks and already talking too much. Across the room of eager freshmen faces they exchanged glances that day, not realizing it would lead us to this incredible weekend in Central NY with all their friends+family. And what a day it was!
