Jess & Aaron’s Soft and Romantic CNY Wedding
We are SO excited to showcase Jess & Aaron’s soft and romantic summer wedding! This past June, this super sweet couple joined us at the estate to celebrate their wedding after rescheduling their original date from last year. We were so excited to finally get these two married and you could clearly tell just how happy they were the entire day!
The day before the wedding, Jess & Aaron hosted their rehearsal dinner at Cazenovia’s very own Brewster Inn. After dinner, Jess headed back to the estate to stay overnight in the Farmer Cottage, while Aaron remained at the Brewster Inn, which would be his getting ready location. The next morning, as Aaron and his groomsmen took photos together right on Lake Cazenovia, Jess and her bridesmaids got ready inside the Farmer Cottage and took some fun photos beside the pool!
First Look & Wedding Party
Jess & Aaron decided to have their first look on the front lawn, overlooking the main house, fountain, and the grape arbor. It was so beautiful! Then they headed out into the meadow for some couples portraits featuring the stunning hills of CNY behind them. Afterwards, their wedding party joined them for portraits in front of the barns and the tree swing, which was so fun!!
Ceremony & Cocktail Hour
Their ceremony also took place on the front lawn with soft, romantic décor and florals in light pastel colors. They used our circular wooden wedding arch and other elegant pieces from our extensive décor inventory to create a truly beautiful and romantic feel. Immediately after the ceremony, their guests headed over to the barns for cocktail hour outside. Reception
Inside the Red Barn, MLH Events and her team set up the reception space with a stunning blue and gold color scheme and timeless décor. One of our favorite touches was the gelato cart from The Cremeria and we loved that their stationary featured a watercolor illustration of the Red Barn! During reception, Jess & Aaron snuck outside with their photographer, Kerri Lynn, for a few more couples portraits. It was a little rainy, so they took along two of our clear bubble umbrellas, which was so cute! Finally they headed back inside the Red Barn to dance the night away with their guests.
