I liken my love for this beautiful Fall affair to that first cup of coffee on a lovely Monday morning.  It's pure, unadulterated bliss... a feeling that, given the chance, I would happily relive time and time again. This wedding is that first tasty sip, a rush of happiness all in one sitting with a color palette that will knock your socks off, an adorable bride and groom and one devastatingly gorgeous image after another captured by Carolina Rivera Photography.  See them all in the full gallery.

From Carolina Rivera Photography... Andrea and Pat are the perfect match for each other – both have that spunk in their personalities, love to just have fun and enjoy life.  In fact, their honeymoon was a camping trip up into the mountains of Canada, which comes as no surprise that their wedding was a super fun event, on the property of Pat’s parent’s in Old Chatham, NY (upstate) with fall-themed and barn-themed details to go along with the rustic charm of this small town wedding.

Their ceremony ran into a bit of rain, so it had to be tented, but shortly after the sun made it’s glorious appearance during our portrait session, which I couldn’t get enough of!  Afterwards, soaked shoes and all, we all headed up to the tented reception with a gorgeous mountain and lake view!

The goal of this wedding was simple and unpretentious: no dances or formalities, just straight up fun, local caterers who brought food from their farms, and prepared it right on the farm.  Two cakes, one homemade gluten-free for the bride, and locally brewed beer with lots of dancing and a surprise fireworks display at the end of the night.
