O’Brien’s Sleepy Hollow Wedding , East Aurora, NY
October 18th, was a chilly fall day with plenty of sunshine and the most vibrant leaves I think I’ve seen all season.
Both Stephanie and Brian started the day getting ready at the historic Roycroft Inn, in East Aurora, NY.
Stephanie, her mother, soon to be mother in law, bridesmaids, grandmother, and three nieces, all gathered around as the talented ladies from Blush Hair and Makeup helped everyone to look their best. While the groomsmen had a relaxed morning and shared a drink out of their antique beer steins, gifted to them by Brian.
THE FIRST LOOK
Once everyone was ready for the big day, Brian and Stephanie shared a private first look in a tucked away little courtyard of the Roycroft. I personally love the green tones of the portraits we were able to capture there. Check out the tree above their heads with the Dr. Seuss looking berries. Bonus points to anyone who can name that tree!
We then headed to O’Brien’s Sleepy Hollow, the location of the main event! The grounds there are so pretty, especially in Autumn. I was blown away by how much color there was in the leaves.
Brian and Stephanie had a lovely ceremony, directed by a close friend who was ordained just so that she could marry these two!
Afterwards, we snuck off for a few more portraits with the beautiful couple, before heading to their reception.
It was such a fun evening. We even had an unexpected guest, a small little barn owl that hung around for cocktail hour.
Once the dancing started, everyone was excited and ready to get moving! The highlight was definitely all the moms dancing to ‘The Git Up’, which if you haven’t heard it yet, google it NOW! It is hands down my favorite line dance to date. The moms’ dance was awesome and incredibly entertaining, especially with their matching cowboy hats!!
All in all, it was the perfect day. Beautiful in many ways. I am so happy for you, Brian + Stephaine! And I can’t wait to meet the newest four legged member of your family!!! 😉
