Crista and Rich’s East Hill Creamery wedding in Perry, New York within the Finger Lakes was the perfect July wedding. These cuties have been together for nine years and the have the sweetest love story! Crista and Rich met and fell in love online while Rich was stationed in Japan, they had been dating almost a full year before they were able to meet in person! They worked through being in a long distance relationship for three years until they were finally able to move in together. Back in the summer of 2020, I was able to travel to Boston to photograph their engagement session. You can check out that shoot HERE! I had to much fun exploring the city with them and seeing all of their favorite places. One of my favorite parts about my trip was being able to witness just how sweet and beautiful their love truly is. Rich and Christa have quickly become clients turned friends for me, and being able to capture so many important moments of their relationship really has meant the world to me.
Christa got ready for her wedding day with her mom and her best friend at the beautiful Glen Iris Inn in Letchworth State Park. Every aspect of the morning was laid back, relaxing, and beautiful. After getting ready, we headed to their venue, The Chalet at East Hill. The florals were colorful and stunning. I really loved shooting at this venue, I thought it was so unique and it really did have so many beautiful amenities for the couple! Upstate New York has so many beautiful wedding venues. After saying “I do,” the couple had such a beautiful and intimate reception with heartfelt toasts and lots of fun dance moves.
This East Hill Creamery wedding was an absolute dream. I feel as though I do my best work when I am connected and have built a relationship with my couples. I loved getting to help Crista plan out the little details of their wedding day and help her work out the perfect wedding day timeline. I make it such a priority to make the planning process as easy and enjoyable for all of my couples. I absolutely love Crista and Rich and I had the most incredible time getting to be apart of their big day! If you’re looking for a wedding photography who is so much more than just another vendor who shows up on your day, I am definitely your girl! Reach out to me, I would absolutely love to chat!
