Megan and Ryan love to spend the Fourth of July holiday at Ryan’s family lake house in Penn Yan, New York. The couple decided to pay tribute to Ryan’s New York and Megan’s New Hampshire upbringing by getting married at LaBelle Winery and Amherst, New Hampshire. Ryan’s father is from the Finger Lakes region of New York State, which is where LaBelle gets their grapes to make their wines.
It was a gorgeous day to be married in a vineyard, and I had a blast photographing the spectacular scenery as well as the inner workings of the winery. I love an adventurous couple willing to think out of the box and their suggestion to shoot formals in the wine cellar really paid off with unique surroundings and beautiful lighting. I could have spent two hours just exploring all of the possibilities there.
Megan and Ryan’s wedding colors of green and purple perfectly captured the essence of their vineyard wedding. I particularly liked the wine barrel they asked guests to sign. What a great memento! Congratulations Megan and Ryan!
