A Wedding at the Finger Lakes | Nicole and Keegan | Auburn, New York

Fun fact: We met Nicole and Keegan randomly while we were on a walk in our neighborhood! To this day, we still love telling the story of how we met them and how, because of them, we now love the Finger Lakes area. Speaking of the Finger Lakes – Nicole and Keegan couldn’t have picked a more picturesque location for their wedding in Auburn, New York.

Known for its breathtaking scenery and pristine waters, the Finger Lakes region provided the perfect canvas for Nicole and Keegan’s wedding. Nestled among rolling hills and vineyards, the venue offered a captivating backdrop for their ceremony and portraits.

And as fate would have it, their wedding day was graced by a delicate smokey haze that embraced the entire landscape, bestowing a surreal and dreamy appearance to the surroundings. The haze was a result of distant wildfires from Canada, which, although concerning in their own right, gave the wedding an unexpected and poetic touch. The sun’s rays danced through the haze, casting a soft, warm glow over the ceremony and creating an otherworldly ambiance that was nothing short of mesmerizing.

Aside from the scenery, one of our favorite moments of their wedding day was during the speech Nicole’s dad gave at the reception. Keegan and Nicole create amazing video ads where they randomly choose two different topics/subjects and create an ad out of them (here’s an example of their work: Bibigo and Rom-Com Video Ad) So, when Nicole’s dad brought over a box with folded up pieces of paper in it and said, “what if I combine…” and drew Nicole and Kegan’s names, it’s safe to say there wasn’t a dry eye in the whole room!

Nicole and Keegan truly are two of the nicest people we’ve met. They’re kind, gracious and a perfect match for one another. We’re honored that they chose us to travel to New York and capture their beautiful wedding day.

Nicole and Keegan,

We are so glad we randomly met you two on our walk! It’s one of those “what are the odds?!” situations and boy are we glad the odds were in our favor that day. You two were such a joy to work with and it was so great capturing your wedding day, and meeting your friends and family. We wish you all the happiness in the world and we can’t wait to see what awesome content you guys create next!

With Love,
Matlock and Kelly
