I first met Sydney and Sam when they were high school sweethearts, and I took their prom pictures. Little did I know, several years later I would be photographing their wedding! After their Brookside Gardens engagement session, I knew I couldn’t wait to photograph them again.
Sydney and Sam had the most perfect autumn day for their wedding at the Belmont Manor & Historic Park. Belmont Manor provided a lovely area for the wedding party to put the finishing touches on, and an incredible backdrop for the outdoor ceremony. Do not miss the photos of Sam’s surprise ring-bearer. The surprise experience will certainly be one of my favorite wedding day stories to tell! Not to mention the dance floor that was never empty!

And so starts the ruse of the best man forgetting the rings…
A very special ring bearer! This is where the handler instructed us not to move a muscle!
Sam was full of surprises. He learned to play the guitar just to serenade his new bride.
