If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know by now that the weather this year has mostly been a washout…lots of rain and cooler than normal temperatures. This weekend was one of the better ones and there was no rain. I was happy and I’m sure Jessica and Ed were relieved. The wedding reception took place at Six Mile Creek Vineyard in Ithaca. I’ve got a special place in my heart for Six Mile Creek as it’s where I had my wedding reception. What a beautiful location for a wedding and reception. Although this couple did not have their ceremony here, it is certainly possible to do so and there is a beautiful pond on the grounds for just such pond-side ceremonies. For this reception the cocktail hour was beside the pond and the meal and dancing was in the winery itself.
Jessica had sworn me to secrecy some weeks before because she and Ed had been taking dance lessons in preparation for their first dance which was a Tango. I was the first person to actually see them dancing the tango together. I caught a glimpse of them practicing just moments before the reception began, outside of the main reception area. But let me tell you, the actual dance was perfect and the guests went wild as the bride and groom were dancing together. This tango was the “real deal”.
This was just an amazing wedding in so many ways. The food was great, the setting was beautiful, the guests danced and danced and danced all night long.
Thanks Jessica and Ed for having me be a part of your fantastic day and enjoy a few more of the photos I took.
