Modern Rustic Summer Wedding in Upstate New York • Du Soleil Photographie


We could all use a major dose of pretty today, no? There's still snow on the ground and half of the tri-state is without power... so we'll swoon over this stunning Upstate New York wedding from Du Soleil Photographie, instead. Dana + Steven's modern rustic wedding at Our Farm in Cazenovia, NY was FULL of thoughtful details and endless inspiration... from the two-piece bridal gown and the hand-crafted beer garden to the floral bridesmaid dresses and the incredible vintage decor, every details leaves us breathless. This wedding is a true testament of how simple details can transform your wedding and create an unforgettable day for your family and friends. 

Dana & Steven’s wedding was beautiful in all senses of the word. From the pieces that the Bride’s parents hand-made for her wedding to the emotions of the Bride and Groom’s first look, this wedding will pull at your heartstrings for all the details that show – simply – love, not only between the Bride and Groom, but also between families and friends.

The Bride opted for a two-piece bridal look and her top was a hand-made gift from her Mom. They designed it together and created a piece of art that’s truly stunning. The filigree pattern against the beige soft tulle was an elaborate yet elegant combination.

Their first look was a very sweet and emotional part of the day. Steven had a bit of a longer wait than expected because Dana’s getting ready ran a little longer than scheduled. You could tell he was anxious to see his Bride. When he finally turned around and saw her for the first time, all the anxiousness and suspense crystalized into happy tears. It was moving. And it was beautiful. Dana read his letter that he had written for her. His words made her eyes glisten as she was reading it. They cried, laughed and made everything around them so sweet and loving.

The Bride’s Dad crafted together a beer garden bar for their cocktail hour and reception. It fit perfectly with their rustic farm wedding and was a unique ‘center piece’ where the guests gathered around and socialized.
