I’m leaving for New York this morning, I’ll be going to my friend Carol’s near Buffalo for the night and then tomorrow Carol and I will be taking off for Adirondacks for a couple nights. We will be staying at the National Historic Landmark, Great Camp Sagamore on Sagamore Lake (but the address is Raquette Lake). It was the wilderness retreat of the Alfred Vanderbilt family from 1901-1954, which they referred to it as the Camp. It was donated to Syracuse University in 1954 by Alfred’s widow Margaret, SU used it for 20 years then they sold about 1500 acres to the State of New York for the Forest Preserve. The 27 buildings on a total of 27.7 acres were sold to an educational not-for-profit organization (so to be compatible with it’s neighboring Forest Reserve). Sagamore Institute of the Adirondacks (the not-for-profit owners) work very hard in restoring to and preserving the authenticity of the property through donations, grants, fund raising events and a lot of volunteer work.
Well on with this weeks blog post.
Our niece Becca, got married this last June. I don’t advertise myself as a wedding photographer, but for family I have been known to be one. The ceremony was at the City Hall Park in Tecumseh, at the water fountain. It was a very warm overcast day with possible rain forecasted. There were a few drops of rain after the ceremony and photos but fortunately that was all.
The couple’s two-year old son was the ring bearer, but wasn’t sure about the whole ordeal and the flower girl ended up carry the sign (which had the rings attached) that Kolton was to carry along with her little basket. In the photo you can see that she was almost dragging him along holding his hand.
The reception at the township hall was decorated with fun in mind. With having a two-year old son and knowing that there would be several children attending, Becca kept the young ones in mind with her plans. The tables were covered with brown craft paper along with crayons, Hersey Kisses, one table had temporary tattoos and stickers, plus there was a candy table and kissing booth. She is very crafty with a good imagination. She made the bouquets, boutonnieres, the cake and desserts. Later in the evening after dark they had the guests go outside and light sparklers to form two lines for them to walk between as if they were seeing them off. As you can see in the images she did a great job with all the unique ideas for the festivity. Fun was had by all, no matter of the age.
As always, thank you for visiting. Have a wonderful day.
