Photography by Syracuse Wedding Photographers – The Story Photography

Venue – Fenimore Art Museum & Farmers’ Museum

Can you believe that this was my very first time to Cooperstown?  Yeah, well I’m not much of a baseball fanatic so I never had much reason to go before!  Little did I know, I was missing out on some of the best scenery in New York!  Gillian & Tore planned this wonderful Fenimore Art Museum wedding with their reception at the Louis C. Jones Center in the Farmers’ Museum.

Now that right there is how you rock an outdoor wedding!  I love being on the lookout for the little details even amongst the guests.

OK, now that you’ve seen the photos I’m going to let you in on a little secret…

Gillian was the one who decorated the reception hall… Gillian was the one who did the floral arrangements… Gillian was the one who made the cake… Take another look at the shot of the entire room.  OK, now that you’ve done that you will remember that there were little orange boxes with pink bows at each place setting, inside those boxes were mini-cakes for each and every guest, and they were made by Gillian too!  I’m probably forgetting a bunch of other stuff that she did too!

Gillian, thanks for being such a wonderfully resourceful and crafty bride but most of all, thank you for doing it with such grace!
