A Rustic Cortland, NY Wedding at Lime Hollow Nature Center | Emily and Noah

Emily and Noah are married! Emily and I first met when we were kids playing basketball (arguably on the worst team that ever existed). We also went to high school and college together, and I was so thrilled when she asked me to help capture her wedding day.

Emily and Noah tied the knot at Lime Hollow Nature Center in Cortland, NY which was absolutely beautiful! Everything took place outside, and they lucked out with perfect weather. The forecast was slightly terrifying in the days leading up to the wedding, but thankfully the thunderstorms passed through in the morning leaving a gorgeous afternoon to get married! 

I loved Emily's custom dress! It was just so perfect for her.


Ahhh don't you love a groom's face when the bride is coming down the aisle?!


Emily's dad shared some really sweet words during the ceremony. He threw in some jokes too, including a reference back to our days playing CYO basketball haha  :)

I loved the amphitheater style of the ceremony site. All of the guests had a great view of the bride and groom, as well as a gorgeous backdrop of Gracie Pond.


These guys were total goofballs. I can't wait to show Noah the one-on-one photos with each of his groomsmen. I won't embarrass them here on the internet :)


Love all of these girls! And their dresses look so beautiful together.


One of Lime Hollow's highlights is an Art Meadow - filled with funky artwork from local artists. Emily is an awesome artist herself (check out her work here!) so of course we had to get some photos with the artwork!


Time to get the party started!


The bridesmaid speeches were so sweet. Definitely had some funny moments, but Emily's sisters and best friend knew how to get those tearjerker reactions too.

The groomsmen speeches were hilarious! They started out all in unison - totally had all the guests cracking up :)


Molly and the Badly BENT Bluegrass Boys played some awesome bluegrass music! All the guests were having a fun time on the dance floor, and even jumping in to sing a few songs :)


Thank you Emily and Noah for allowing me to be a part of your big day!
