Lauren + Keenan | Emerson Park Pavilion Wedding
There are a lot of memorable moments I’ve collected over the years in filming weddings. A lot of emotional walks down the aisle, precious letters, epic toasts, etc. While I enjoyed all of the above moments at Lauren and Keenan’s wedding, their wedding day moment that I’ll always remember is a little different. It was standing on their dance floor at the end of the night surrounded by SO MANY people as they went ALL OUT on the final song of the night with the band. I literally had chills. The energy was unreal! Every time I watch their film I feel a little more energized than I did before hand. This wedding was FUN!
Lauren and Keenan first started dating ten years ago! After some twists and turns, they finally made it to their wedding day at one of my favorite venues in Central NY: Emerson Park Pavilion! Lauren got ready at The Bond 1835 in Skaneateles, which is a really wonderful, beautiful place to get married if you’re near the Skaneateles area!! They did their first look in the back yard of The Bond and then we headed to Emerson Park Pavillion for lots of pictures and video. We had fun with their trolley, got lots of energy from their wedding party, and often took breaks inside the AC of Emerson Park Pavilion since it was quite the hot, humid, August day.
Since they did a first look, they got to enjoy their cocktail hour with their guests where I also got to enjoy the best spinach artichoke dip I’ve ever tried in my life. I was blown away by this dip (and their eggplant tower later for dinner was PHENOMENAL!). Good job Emerson Park Pavilion! Then the energy really ramped up after dinner as their band, Silver Arrow Band, took the stage and brought epic music and beats the rest of the night for all their friends and family to rock out to.
We finished the night with a sparkler exit and here’s a first: the groom ran off to run in the lake at the end! Lauren and Keenan had so many people hang with them until the very end of the night which made for the most fun dancing and probably the longest sparkler exit I’ve ever seen before! Lauren and Keenan, thanks for sharing your day with me! I was honored to capture it and for real had some of the most fun I’ve ever had at a wedding!
