Sherwood Inn Wedding: Ami and George

FILED IN: wedding

The Sherwood Inn has been my husband’s and my “place” for lots of years. It’s where we went to hide for a night from my husband’s first teaching job and the burdens of my college schedule. It was freezing cold outside, but cozy and smelling of fresh crab bisque inside. We watched Judge Judy reruns and walked the chilly streets of Skaneateles. There have been many more visits like these that have added up to the Sherwood being one of my favorite places (but maybe without Judge Judy being involved). So when George and Ami said they were celebrating their wedding at this classy and cozy Inn, my heart did a flutter. Before heading to the Sherwood Inn, Ami and George said their vows at St. George Macedonian Orthodox Church in Syracuse, NY, as this is a special place to George’s family. Ami and George’s Big Day was fun to photograph because it was full of Macedonian Orthodox traditions that made for so many fun photographic moments throughout the day. And if having the fortune of capturing so many epic traditions on camera wasn’t enough, the way family and friends surrounded George and Ami with such unconditional love and support was truly inspiring. This was a day of honest celebration, of excitement and enjoyment. The Sherwood’s back lawn made for the PERFECT (and when I say perfect, I mean… perfect) ambiance of an upscale but relaxed cocktail hour. They had corn hole to play, drinks and amazing finger food, the most subtle warm breeze, and lest I forget to mention, an incredible view of Skaneateles Lake across the street. If the night ended here, it would have been a full night of fun! But let me tell you, there’s an extra bit of party in a Macedonian party! The coming together of literally joining hands and arms to dance together has a special way of bringing every person into an intimate celebration of two people. And that they did! With the bread dance and all! I am immensely grateful these two chose me to capture such a stunning day!
