Summer Daydream

SAILBOATS3

The weather has been so dreary over the weekend that we decided to take a look back to sunnier days and sort some photos from a boating trip around Henderson Harbor over the summer. How did you stay warm this weekend?

Sunny Days & Starry Nights in Sackets Harbor

 

Sackets

Now that the wedding festivities have died down and everything is back to normal in our world, we have been going through some of the summer photos we never got around to looking at. We came across the following from a beautiful day out on the water and a bunch of photos from our night shot series we had been experimenting with at the time, and thought they were too pretty not to share. We can’t wait to get back out with the camera equipment to explore new destinations!

I Love US – An Upstate Wedding

Balloon Wedding Collage

It is with great excitement that I am finally able to share this post summing up the past few months which are the culmination of a decade of laughter, tears, dreams, adventures and love. On September 2, Scottie and I were married high above Upstate New York in the tiny wicker basket of a hot air balloon. We sailed though the skies above the Thousand Islands and exchanged vows as the air cooled and the leaves began to change.

Nearly two months later, we celebrated our marriage at the Flower Memorial Library with 30 of our closest friends and family. The library has been special to us since we featured it here, on iloveusny. We would like to thank you all for reading, following and supporting us through this, and our many great adventures here in Upstate New York.

A Change of Scenery

 

Thompson Park

While the weather in Upstate New York this Autumn hasn’t been remarkable, we did manage to get out this past week on some of the more glamourous days to catch sight of the foliage before it all blew off the trees. Here are some of our favorite shots:

2012 Beekman Harvest Fest

2012 Harvest Fest in Sharon Springs

A little over an hour east of Utica, sits a small quaint town in the center of New York State that is featured in its very own reality television show. “The Fabulous Beekman Boys” is set in the town of Sharon Springs, New York and follows the lives of two city boys who have moved to the country to reinvent themselves as farmers and entrepreneurs. Josh Kilmer-Purcell and his partner Brent Ridge have created the lifestyle brand Beekman 1802 which they slap on everything from cookbooks to goat’s milk soap. Over the weekend, Scott and I and a couple of great friends traveled down to Sharon Springs to partake in the town’s annual Harvest Fest. The festival featured vendors selling everything from pickles and pumpkins to clothing and jewelry, not to mention celebrity appearances by the Fabulous Beekman Boys themselves. Every inch of the town was dripping with pumpkins, mums and cornstalks, it was truly a visual delight. Highlights of our day included chatting with the locals, seeing the live birds of prey at the bird rescue exhibit and ending the day with a glass of wine at the gorgeous American Hotel. Here are some of our favorite shots from the day, and a clip from the popular show “The Fabulous Beekman Boys”. For a visual treat, check out the Beekman Boys’ website: http://beekman1802.com/.TheBeekmanBoys
