Lacey and Paul - Syracuse, NY

Lacey and Paul’s story is one of pure love and fun! It began with a mischievous theft of Paul’s popcorn in order to retain his attention and the playfulness of these two never ceases. This Syracuse , winter wedding truly was a joy to watch. It was so genuine, and beautiful from the vows to the decor, to Lacey’s stunning wedding dress! This also marked the uniting of a new family as Paul gave his vows to Amelia and Haden, promising them to love them as his children. As an added tear-jerker, Amelia and Haden had vows to give to Paul as well and Amelia performed a rendition of “Can’t Help Falling in Love” for the ceremony on her ukulele.

I was especially grateful for Lacey and Paul’s enthusiasm for their photos which they both smiled through even when we were outside in the bitter cold wind. Of course, we made sure to minimize outdoor photo times especially with Lacey’s gorgeous gown being backless.

My favorite time though was their first look. I’m never against a first look but rarely do I find it so rewarding to photograph. Lacey and Paul immediately had the most beautiful expressions on their faces once they saw each other. It almost made me want to leave the room so they could be alone. But then I wouldn’t be doing my job.

Congratulations to both of you! Best wishes in your new life together!
