I think that New Park Ithaca has to be one of the most unique wedding venues that I have had the privilege to photograph and that’s exactly what drew in Amy & Dan for their beautiful wedding day!

Now, one thing you need to know about this wedding is that Amy & Dan may have been the best ever at staying cool on their wedding day!  I mean, literally staying cool, the heat index made it feel like 103 degrees in Ithaca!

Amy began her day by heading over to Jen at Hair & More, while Dan stayed back at New Park to relax a little with the groomsmen as well as get some things ready for the wedding day.  Once Amy arrived back at New Park, Justin of juju Beauty was there to do her makeup magic! bridal makeup at new park ithaca New Park Ithaca wedding day preparation groom getting ready for wedding day at New Park Ithaca groom opening gift from bride before Ithaca wedding Getting bow ties tied on a wedding day is always an adventure!getting ready for wedding at New Park Ithaca new park Ithaca wedding photography bride getting ready for new park Ithaca wedding Once both Dan and Amy were both ready we set up their “first look” near the ceremony site in the woods at New Park.wedding day first look at New Park Ithaca groom sees bride for the first time at Ithaca wedding new park Ithaca wedding photography wedding photo at Taughannock Falls overlook outdoor wedding ceremony in Ithaca at New Park bride walks down aisle with her father at outdoor Ithaca wedding ceremony father of bride greeting the groom at Ithaca wedding father hugs bride on wedding day at New Park outdoor wedding ceremony at New Park Ithaca bride and groom exchange vows at Ithaca wedding What a beautiful and special connection to nature in this unique place for an outdoor wedding ceremony in Ithaca!  wedding ceremony in the woods at New Park Ithaca Candid Ithaca wedding photography In one of my favorite moments from the day, below, Dan recites his vows to Amy and included a special section where he vowed to take care of Amy’s dogs!  So, Amy turned to her dogs who were a part of the ceremony, and gave them a big thumbs up!bride reacts to groom's wedding vows dogs in the wedding party Amy’s flowers were done by Dan’s niece, Alicia, from Sheer Style – Wedding Florist.bride and groom celebrate while walking down aisle after wedding ceremony Ithaca wedding photography at New Park bride and groom portrait at New Park Ithaca bride kisses her dog on wedding day little girl dancing before wedding reception at New Park first dance at New Park wedding reception New park Ithaca wedding first dance unique Ithaca wedding photography bride and groom dance at Ithaca wedding reception father daughter dance at New Park wedding bride dances with father at wedding reception father hugs daughter at wedding reception guests dancing at Ithaca wedding reception at New Park wedding reception fun at New Park Ithaca bride and groom dancing during wedding reception at New Park fun with bubbles at wedding reception bride yelling in to microphone at Ithaca wedding fun wedding photography at New Park Ithaca bride and groom enjoy a moment during the wedding reception at New Park
