Morley & Mike! – Genesee Grande Wedding {Syracuse, NY}

Syracuse Wedding

This past week I had the privilege of photographing the wedding of Morley and Mike at the Genesee Grande Hotel in Syracuse and it was a great time!  Elegant, fun, relaxed and still refined!
Check out this this sneak peek in to their great wedding photos and share your thoughts in the comments below!
I also have to add a special thanks to Alice G. Patterson for working with me and capturing some great photos of the details!
