Lyn Liao and Jim Butler married in Chappaqua, New York at Crabtree’s Kittle House. We’re no stranger to the Kittle House here at Dave Cross Photography, and had a blast yet again while spending the day with Lyn and Jim.

Lyn took an unconventional route with her wedding preparations: in addition to being a trained dancer and fitness expert, she’s also a seamstress. Yes… she built the dresses for her bridal party (and they look fantastic).

Since the weather was looking grim, we accompanied the bridal party to a local train station for a few portraits near shelter. The result was some fun moments we couldn’t have planned if we wanted.

The ceremony was initially set for outside, but Mother Nature did not play along. Luckily, the Kittle House had set up a rain-proof tent and the celebration could go on without a hitch.

During the reception, Moonlight Silhouettes from Stolen Moments provided a great background of songs for the very eager dancers amongst the guests.  Flowers were by Carole and the cake was by Make My Cake.

Lyn and two friends even took some time to dance a special Irish jig for her new Irish family.

Check out the video from the day (set to their first dance, “You Are the Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne – purchase the track on iTunes).
