Kathryn + Dominic – Mountain View Gardens and the Terra Cotta

Kathryn and Dominic were married on private property in Harpersville, NY which has been lovingly named Mountain View Gardens. I always love private venues because they’re unique and almost always exquisite. Mountain View Gardens lived up to it’s name and it was nothing less than stunning! Not only was it the perfect place for a ceremony, but it was the perfect place to get ready as well. Here are some of my favorite shots from their big day!

Hillside Flower Girls did a fantastic job with Kathryn’s bouquet. It was absolutely stunning and smelled delicous!

The wind made for some dramatic shots. I find that clients can be worried when the wind is whipping but it adds a touch of drama to photos and you can never go wrong with that.

It’s perfection.)Kathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-Photography-19P I NI M A G EKathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-Photography-20P I NI M A G EKathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-Photography-21P I NI M A G EKathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-Photography-22P I NI M A G E

The most impressive aspect of this wedding was the detail that went into this. It has the appearance of being touched by a professional planner and decorator. NOPE. This was all Kathryn. She made over 1000 of these little hearts to stick in the ground for decoration and to create an aisle for people to walk through. Simply amazing.

THIS RIGHT HERE! Did you know that when my clients do something like this, I gift them a float wrap? One of my biggest pet peeves is trying to shoot around people’s iPhones and iPads. I’ve had to politely ask people to step out of the aisle during the ceremony so the bride and groom could see each other. It gets bad folks. A lot of people wouldn’t think to worry about this kind of thing but Kathryn and Dominic covered all bases.

Getting ready was a blast. Not only are Kathryn and Dominic two of the kindest people I’ve ever met, but they are also hilarious. They had me cracking up frequently through out the day.

Dominic got ready upstairs and began the whole process with opening up some gifts from his bride to be. These images were captured by my amazing assistant and second photographer, Brittni Stasiuk.

I love that there’s a little shovel attached to his boutonnière. It’s the little things!

The ceremony was beautiful. They not only planted a tree together to mark the first day of their marriage but the sealed a box with a good wine to open on their anniversary.
This was my favorite part of the entire ceremony. They used a nail gun to close up the box containing their anniversary wine. There’s nothing wrong with efficiency on your wedding day. Kathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-Photography-72P I NI M A G EKathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-Photography-79P I NI M A G EKathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-Photography-85P I NI M A G EKathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-Photography-91P I NI M A G EKathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-Photography-95P I NI M A G EKathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-Photography-96P I NI M A G EKathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-Photography-101P I NI M A G EThe official Mrs. and Mr. Kathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-Photography-109P I NI M A G EAgain, I can’t emphasize how perfect this location was for portraits. We ventured all over the property to capture some gorgeous photos and wandering around with these two was just as fun as the creative process.
The reception took place at the Terra Cotta in downtown Binghamton, NY. This venue has some great spots out back for photos and we took full advantage. The light was on point! I always love coming to this venue for receptions. The Terra Cotta is not only a classy place for an event but their staff is phenomenal with clients, the guests and the participating vendors. Kathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-binghamton-ny-jen-pecka-photography-182P I NI M A G EKathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-binghamton-ny-jen-pecka-photography-183P I NI M A G EKathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-binghamton-ny-jen-pecka-photography-185P I NI M A G EKathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-binghamton-ny-jen-pecka-photography-186P I NI M A G EKathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-binghamton-ny-jen-pecka-photography-190P I NI M A G EKathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-binghamton-ny-jen-pecka-photography-194P I NI M A G EKathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-binghamton-ny-jen-pecka-photography-196P I NI M A G EKathryn-Dominic-Wedding-Binghamton-NY-Jen-Pecka-PhotographyKatherine-Dominic-wedding-binghamton-ny-jen-pecka-photography-197P I NI M A G E
