Sara and Chris

Last weeks heat wave finally broke as Hurricane Earl brushed the east coast Friday afternoon, ushering much cooler temperatures and high winds. It felt more like October than Labor Day weekend. I'm not complaining, I love fall. It was just a bit of a challenge to hold an outdoor wedding at Granger Homestead in Canandaigua. The homestead is a beautiful Federal style mansion built in 1816. It is the perfect setting for a small, intimate wedding, complete with horse drawn carriage rides.
We began the day with Sara and Chris at their home on the hills on the east side of Canandaigua Lake. Their house sits in the perfect trajectory for a strong southwest wind to come up the valley unencumbered. I was scared to walk by their walnut tree with the wind howling through the branches. We did manage to get in a few photos with Chris's Harley Davidson without it blowing over.
After the ceremony at Granger, we did photos on the grounds with many of the historic buildings, including an original early-19th century law office - one of only four in the country remaining.
