Seneca Lake Wedding Photography, Belhurst Castle: Grayson and Bernadette

August 15, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

What an amazing day!  We are so happy we were able to be part of Bernadette and Grayson's day at the lovely Belhurst Castle! The weather was just perfect, the setting was grand and this couple has such a deep love and respect for each other that capturing their adoration for each other was easy.  Even though their day held a curve ball or two, they kept their focus on what was important and never allowed there to be anything but happiness and love to enter their day. Their first look had a last minute location change but it was truly a beautiful moment just the same. The wedding party was awesome to work with and you could tell that they, too, had an incredible love and respect for these two.  Family came in from all over the world to celebrate with them and the ceremony included the Filipino traditions of the cord and veil and the ceremonial coins known as Arras.  These coins are traditionally given by the groom to the bride to symbolize his commitment to providing for the family, but in this ceremony Bernadette passed the coins back to Grayson representing their promise to build their future together.  Be sure to check out who delivered the coins to them when you scroll through the images.  The reception held many sentimental moments, especially with Bernadette's father's speech and during their dance.  He commented it was his contacts that were causing his eyes to tear up, but we're pretty sure it was something else ;)  Before we left, we were able to get down to the docks and get some really great moments at sunset.  Be sure to scroll to the end to check a few of them out and while you're there be sure to leave this lovely couple some love in the comments below.  We'd like to give a shout out to the other vendors that helped to make their day wonderful.
