On the rainiest day of the year, Dominique and John were married at Owera Vineyards in Cazenovia, New York. It was absolutely gorgeous and unlike any other wedding I have ever photographed. Although it rained. all. day., it did not put a damper on anyones good time. In fact, we used the rain to produce one of my favorite images of the day.

First we start with the getting ready which took place at The Hampton Inn, Cazenvoia . I knew that John had a special gift for Dominique to open before the wedding but I had no idea how touching it would be. There was not a dry eye in the room when Dominique opened up a stuffed bear gift which featured an audio recording of her late father. In fact, this was by far the most emotional wedding I have ever photographed. The Best Man said it best when he proclaimed “Even the cake had tears today.”
Next we head over to an amazingly gorgeous wedding venue and a personal favorite restaurant of mine, Owera Vineyards. The vintage Gatsby themed decor was absolutely amazing. Even the guests dressed in roaring 20’s attire. The floral arrangements were stunning!
Let’s not forget the cigar bar on site!
Awesome introductions and so much dancing. Followed by a sparkler exit!! It was the perfect night for a couple who’s love will last a lifetime. Congratulations to Dominique and John!
