Backyard Wedding with a first sight at Knox Farm’s in East Aurora, NY. Lisa & Tyler met many years ago, and have been dating for what feels like forever! They own a beautiful house together in Bennington, NY and have been settled in for some time. So it made a lot of sense for them to host their wedding at their private estate! They have a beautiful back and front yard with open fields and lots of space for a tent and parking for their closest friends and family. I was honored to be apart of their wedding party along as photographer! It was interesting to see the behind the scenes work that goes into the wedding. As I spent a day before the wedding at their house helping with decorations – even the day of! Many decisions had to be made that most couple’s would leave to the venue to decide. In the end the day went off without a hitch and I think they made all the right choices. From the girls getting ready at Salon Elizabeth in Elma, NY – The guys getting ready at home. I had the help of our new assistant photographer Sarah Garbin at the Salon while Robert Knight covered the boys getting ready. After photos around Knox Farm’s we returned for the Backyard Wedding and ceremony. It was a quick 10 minute ceremony with a good friend of the bride and groom as the officiant. Exchanging of rings and vow’s and sealing it with a kiss. From then on it was all fun – drinks and backyard wedding games like squash ball, ring toss, and bean bag toss. The cutest puppies came out in a dress and bow tie for a few photos too. We had a beautiful sunset over the field behind the tent, that made for some stunning photos. It was the perfect ending to the perfect day!
