Hallie + Brendan had the most beautiful day surrounded by their closest family and friends. The high school sweethearts started the day in the stunning treelined hills of Ellicottville, NY where their wedding was originally scheduled to take place. When the challenges of Covid arose, friends Dan and Maria, offered their gorgeous home and grounds in Springville, NY so Hallie and Brendan could have the wedding of their dreams!
Hallie chose a form fitting lace gown with spaghetti straps and a long train. She paired her look with an updo, showcasing her amazing curls, and a cathedral length veil. She looked incredible! Bridesmaids donned pale pink floor length gowns and the maid of honor stood out in a pretty floral pattern. The guys were ready quickly and excited to watch the Buffalo Bills preseason game. Brendan accessorized with a gold pocket watch, etched with a B, floral tie and we did love his pipe! The guys looked great in their navy suites from Men's Wearhouse and gold tie clips.
Dan and Maria's yard and barn were transformed into a lovely tent covered wedding venue for the day. A few clouds rolled in a dropped some rain, but the sun peeked out just as the bride made her way down the aisle. Hallie and Brendan recited their hand written vows to each other in front of their loved ones. There was the perfect mix of laughter and heart warming tears.
After the ceremony we headed to another friend's property with picturesque lakeside views and the rolling hills as a backdrop. It felt like we were transported to a different place, as if no longer in NY!
Hallie changed into her second dress for the reception, a super fun look that was simple on top and a party at the bottom, with lots of ruffled tulle! Heartfelt speeches from the best man and maid of honor had everyone laughing, crying and toasting the happy couple many times! Hallie and Brendan shared a really sweet first dance as all their guests watched, faces full of love. I don't believe there was a dry eye during Hallie and Dave's father daughter dance. I was basically bawling behind my camera. And Brendan and his mother's dance was just as sweet, everyone was a little emotional! That all ended quickly when the DJ pumped out the first song. Everyone hit the dance floor and never left.
It was the perfect day for an amazing couple! Congratulations Hallie + Brendan! We loved having the opportunity to share in your special day!!
A huge thank you to all of the fantastic vendors who helped to make this day so memorable!
