Cornellian Love | Nick and Jennifer Wed in Ithaca NY
At the end of the day, I left their wedding thinking it was so perfect. Not because it didn’t rain (because it did), not because they had a flawless timeline (they did), not because Cornell University and the Carriage House Cafe offered the perfect backdrops (and they most certainly did)…
but because Nick and Jennifer just belong together, perfectly.
They were so at ease with each other, so complimentary to one another.
They met at Cornell’s storied and beautiful campus in August of 2006. It was Nick’s last year of school there and coincidently enough, he was the resident advisor in the dorm that Jennifer had just moved into for her sophomore year. They became really good friends and soon thereafter developed a deeper, romantic relationship. A Cornellian love.
Two months ago, on an April Sunday, Nick took Jennifer on a hike up to a lake and proposed.
The level of beautiful details on their wedding day was just impeccable considering the wedding planning began just two months ago. I am beyond impressed.
They rented out this house, full of so much character, for the family who came from far and wide (from the Bronx to LA) and got ready here.
Their gorgeous rings are from Riddle’s Jewelry.
Her delicately feminine floral bouquet came from Michaleen’s.
Her dress is from Audra’s Bridal.
Nick and Jennifer chose the Carriage House Cafe for their ceremony and reception and let me tell you first hand, that venue prepared some of the most beautiful food I have ever seen at a wedding. The staff was so friendly and helpful and the space itself was rich with textures, antiques, and histories. A completely unique and refreshing venue space to be in. I totally recommend it.
Jennifer and Nick, what an absolute privilege it was, to not only meet you, but photograph your perfect wedding. I hope your marriage is just as beautiful as June 20, 2015 was and that your love for one another continues to grow deeper and deeper as the years pass on by.
