Susan and Jeff • Skaneateles Wedding Photography

Another beautiful wedding with another great couple! I met with Susan earlier in the year about her wedding and was struck by how warm and open she was and was definitely looking forward to her wedding. She and Jeff briefly dated when they were 14, and met up years later through email. I thought that was cute, but Jeff had a special surprise for Susan at the reception. He revealed that on a visit home he'd discovered an old diary he'd kept as a teen... he then pulled out a framed page of the diary that mentioned the first time he met "this really pretty girl named Susan." and how he was embarrassed that he ran out of things to say after he'd introduced himself. To remedy the situation, he resolved to think of things to talk about. It. Was. Hilarious. The whole place was roaring... it was such a perfect, funny, sweet surprise. Awesome.

The wedding was held at the lovely Mirbeau Inn and Spa... I was so excited when I saw Susan's gorgeous dress. Stunning!

Oh, and the gorgeous location!

...and the lovely bride...

...and handsome groom!

The ladies (and dad!) had a long, beautiful walk to get the ceremony spot. Mirbeau's grounds are so pretty!

The ceremony was a bit late getting started so Susan's dad made sure to give Jeff an encouraging hug when it got rolling... 🙂

Even the fish were checking things out.

Mr. & Mrs!

Bridal party 🙂

Their first dance was amazing, Jeff's uncle Bob played and sang the Pearl Jam song "Just Breathe"... it was really moving.

Party time!

That's commitment!

They knew all the words to "We Didn't Start the Fire." Think about it. All the words.

There were so many lovely spots for portraits!

They're so cute!

Oh man, the dress, the dress! Love.
