Fenimore Museum Wedding: Sarah & David

She stood framed by light and tried to peer just beyond the window’s ledge. She was looking for him. A gray upstate New York sky bowed in humbled reverence to the reds and oranges of a season just starting to catch fire. Of a sea of color about to set blaze. She checked her veil in the mirror just one more time, and then she took a deep breath and smiled. It was as if the color itself was there just for the two of them. As if the whole world had decided to burn a little brighter. And when she thought about their day and she thought about him, she could already feel the warmth on her face. Because wherever he was, she was home.

He stood framed by dark jackets and tried to peer just beyond the property’s edge. He was looking for her. A group gathered together in upstate New York bowed in humble reverence to the love and hope of a life together just starting to catch fire. And a sea of faces stood ready to witness it all. He checked his watch just one more time, and then he took a deep breath and smiled. It was as if smiles themselves had been invented for just the two of them. As if the whole world for one day had decided to shine a little brighter. And when he thought about their lives together, he thought about her. And he could already feel the warmth on his face.

Because wherever she was, he was home.

Married: Sarah & David

Sarah & Dave were married at the Fenimore Museum in Cooperstown, NY, surrounded by a pantone of Fall color and everyone in the world they hold dearest to them. It was a day of laughing and dancing and raising a glass to toast to life’s big moments…and the small ones. It was love in its purest form. The day was made even more perfect thanks to the incredible efforts of event stylist Tori Samuel, who completely transformed the Farmer’s Museum for the evening reception. Sarah & Dave, there are truly no words to thank you for the honor of having us there with you as you started a life together. We adore both of you! My hope is that you will love like this always….surrounded by warmth and with the kind of love that sets the whole world on fire.

So much love,

  1. Lara
