She rode in on a horse!

Getting married in Syracuse NY with a Western flair!
Cassandra and Jim will settle in Utah so it just seemed natural that their event would reflect that part of their life.
 Even we were surprised that the Bride rode in on a horse. Cassandra was in perfect control of her mount and all the rest of the well thought out details of the themed wedding. The location was the beautiful rolling hills of Central New York, which happened to be in the family's back yard. 

The Father of the Bride was either signaling the start of the processional or providing  a motivational moment for the  Groom. All in fun of course!
 The maids carried handtied bouquets of thistle, sunflowers, scabiosa pods and coral godetia with burlap ribbon trim. 

 The ranch style arch was constructed just for the ceremony. How perfect is the lush cornfield in the background. The Groomsmen wore dark blue levi's and a black sport coat. 
Do you love the Groom's white hat?

Black Shepard Hooks, hung with mason jars, lined the aisle. Wispy grasses, sunflowers and rustic burlap ribbon  were arranged  to reinforce the western theme. 

The Bride carried a nosegay of Eskimo roses, white hydrangea, curly willow and scabiosa pods including embellishments of pheasant feathers. The handle was ivory burlap and a tiny touch of rhinestone bling. The Groom had a matching boutonniere.

Oh my gosh, I love that smile. Cassandra and Jim, you created a wonderful event. Thanks for letting us be a part of the happy day.
