Katie and Mike’s wedding was a dream to shoot! From their engagement session last fall to the final dance of the night, they were the sweetest, most lovely people to work with. I find it unsurprising that Katie is a kindergarten teacher – she is one of the most effusive, joyful people I’ve ever met (seriously, go scroll to her entrance into the wedding ceremony!), and the signs that she hand made for the reception reveal a distinct and impressive crafty streak! Mike is also a teacher, but he spends his days with high schoolers – I think it’s just beautiful symmetry that these two enrich the lives of kids, teens, their loved ones, and anyone blessed to be a part of their life.
I can’t think of a better venue for these two than the Wadsworth Homestead, an amazingly beautiful historical mansion located in the heart of Geneseo, New York. From the airy rooms upstairs where the bridal party prepped pre-ceremony to rolling lawns and festive tent, this place is a bride’s (and a photographer’s!) dream come true. And since both Katie and Mike graduated from Geneseo, it seems only fitting that they would be married steps from campus!
Congratulations, Katie and Mike! I have no doubt that your marriage will be even more beautiful than your wedding.
