Upstate NY Wedding | Alexandra + Graham

January 10, 2022

If you love scenic ceremonies, this upstate NY wedding will blow you away.

Alexandra and Graham’s upstate NY wedding looks like a dream – and it totally was. It’s hard to believe, but these stunning photos came from the groom’s sister’s backyard!

Photographing couples in a venue that is meaningful to them is always a treat – especially when that venue is a landscape out of a Bob Ross painting.

I could go on and on about the vast blue skies, the gently sloping hills, and the endless, sprawling fields.

But I won’t. Why? Because Alexandra and Graham’s love story is so sweet and unique, it’s like it was written for a rom-com movie. So, I need the world to know about it!

How it all began:

Once upon a time, in 2008, Alexandra was in an a cappella group called Superfood. Graham was also in an a cappella group, the Brown Jabberwocks. Their mutual love of a cappella brought them together, for the first time, when Alexandra’s group hosted the Brown Jabberwocks.

Fast-forward to that same summer. Somehow, Alexandra and Graham both ended up in the UK, and decided to meet up at a London pub. They added each other on Facebook and remained friends.

But serendipity was on their side, and fate decided that the two would have one more chance encounter.

Three years after they first met, the pair walked into the same new-hire training at a nonprofit organization!

What followed were two years of water cooler chats, work presentations, karaoke nights, and the slow, burning flame of two people falling in love.  

They finally made their relationship official at a karaoke bar in K-Town. And they lived happily ever after! The best part? Alexandra and Graham’s upstate NY wedding was as felicitous and fun as their one-in-a-million love story.
