On Saturday, Caleb and I had the privilege of photographing Becky and Shawn as they tied the knot! Their wedding took place at their family’s home in Lyons, NY. It was the perfect day for an intimate backyard wedding and the day was full of joy!
I have to be honest, I had never been to Lyons before, and I had no idea what to expect as we kept driving into what seemed to be the middle of nowhere! When we got to the ceremony location though, we were amazed at the breathtaking views! From where the guests sat, you could see beautiful rolling green hills in every direction. What made this location extra special is that Becky’s family used to own all of that land! It was definitely a gorgeous spot for a wedding!
Caleb and I were only there for a limited time, but were able to capture so many happy moments! I always love photographing the ceremony, and this was no exception. Shawn’s joy at being married to Becky was so sweet and I think some tears were shed when he said his vows. To add to the sweetness, Shawns son, Jason, was the best man! At only 7 years old, he was in charge of holding both rings, and did a great job! When they were finally introduced as husband and wife, Shawn led Becky and Jason both down the aisle and they shared a tender moment as a new family. *Cue more tears – from everyone!*
In between portraits, I remarked to Jason what a special day it was. He replied, “And a VERY happy day, too!” I couldn’t agree more! Here are my favorite images from Becky and Shawn’s big day!
