The sun was shining and the fall air was crisp.  It was a beautiful day, the type of day every bride dreams of.  Kerry and Mike were busy getting ready for their rustic wedding at Queen's County Farm Museum in New York.   The day had finally arrived on which they would become man and wife .

Mike and Kerry met four years ago when they were set up on a blind date by their close friends.  Instantly hitting it off, Mike and Kerry spent the first few months of their relationship with constant smiles on their faces and laughter on their lips.  Mike quickly fell in love with Kerry's carefree spirit while Kerry adored Mike's sense of humor.  When Mike got down on one knee, Kerry didn't hesitate in saying yes!

A few months ago, I had the pleasure of photographing Kerry and Mike's gorgeous wedding with Betsi Ewing Studio. Come with me on a journey through Kerry and Mike's special day!

Mike and Kerry chose the beautiful Queens County Farm in Floral Park, NY for their rustic wedding.
I spent the morning with the guys!  Waiting at the house for Mike was a stunning Yves Saint Laurent watch from Kerry.  

The guys sported colorful ties matching the colors of the wedding day.  This was only one of many unique details!

The church was so close to Mike's house, the guys were able to walk!  Every time I look at this picture I see Abbey Road.
Kerry and Mike were married in a Catholic church with colorful stained glass windows. 
Mike couldn't get over how beautiful Kerry looked.  

After years of waiting, Mike and Kerry are finally husband and wife!

After the ceremony, we headed over to the farm for a few pictures of the bride and groom with their wedding party.
Kerry, your flowers were simply gorgeous...
...just like you!
The farm was huge, holding fields of sunflowers, pumpkin patches, and apple trees. 

Cocktail hour was held in the large barn.
The reception took place under a white tent overlooking the sunset.  

Mike and Kerry made their grand entrance and went straight into their first dance.  

The signature drink of the night?  Pumpkin Spice Ale with a cinnamon sugar coated rim.  
The bride and groom went all out on their wedding cakes!  They actually had a cake for each individual table!  Thank you to Buttercooky Bakery for these delicious creations.  

The cake cutting was followed by the father/daughter and mother/son dance.  Both brought tears to my eyes.   

The next few hours were spent rocking out!  Kerry and Mike danced until the wee hours of the morning...surrounded by their closest friends.  Kerry and Mike, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your fabulous wedding!  It really was beautiful...just like you!
