Hamilton College Wedding – Meg and Tom


College sweethearts Meg and Tom wanted their closest family and friends to enjoy a destination wedding weekend where their love story began – Hamilton College. Now living in California and often traveling for work to destinations such as Ireland, Singapore, and British Columbia, planning a wedding while traveling the world seemed a bit daunting to them. I was thrilled to help this wonderful pair plan the Upstate New York wedding of their dreams through many months and times zones. 

A picturesque little white church on Hamilton College campus set the backdrop for a beautiful summer ceremony. True to the adventurers Meg and Tom are, their organist performed the theme song to Indiana Jones as they gleefully recessed up the aisle as husband and wife. “Penny” a turquoise vintage ’77 VW bus turned photo booth and a surfboard guest book brought Meg and Tom’s laid back west coast vibe 2,700 miles east to their Central New York cocktail hour. A gorgeous sailcloth tent on the grassy college campus stood above wooden farm tables, hanging floral chandeliers, and joyous guests as they indulged in a locally sourced family style dinner. Guests joined in with the live band excitedly belting out the words to Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing before boarding transportation to downtown Clinton. Festivities continued at the bride and groom’s college stomping grounds until the wee hours of the night! 

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Meg, Tom and their families to specially craft a day that married the New York roots of their love story with their fun and free-spirited coastal sensibilities.

Wishing you many years of adventures filled with love and laughter!

xoxo,

Aissa
