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.

For every post on I Love Upstate, there are at least a thousand photographs that don’t ever get viewed by any one but us. Since we have collected so many, we decided to share some of our most favorite miscellaneous shots from the past two months. From experimenting with extended exposures to jumping out of the car to get a shot from the side of the road, these shots show what we are doing when we aren’t exploring new territory. We hope you enjoy them!
