Congrats to my latest Cornell wedding couple: Yin+Lee! Married at Cornell University on another amazing summer day in Ithaca. Clark+Walker’s roots trace back to Ithaca, where it was originally born (on The Commons!) so it’s always fun to head back for Statler Hotel weddings.
Yin+Lee had a blast blending Jewish and Chinese cultures.
We always love seeing Sarah from Wildflower Florist. Congrats on your new shop!
Yin+Lee met at Cornell thier freshman year (lived in the same dorm) and met through mutual friends, but didn’t start dating until 3 weeks prior to graduation (after plenty of goading from the same mutual friends).
I know we usually save the butta light for portraits, but this Statler Hotel wedding had it during getting ready….
Another gorgeous C+W bride for an Ithaca wedding!
Damn girl, work it!
First look time at the Gothic columns.
Famous CW bridal party shots!
They were married with Lee’s great grandmother’s wedding ring (which she used at her own marriage 100 years ago in 1912). All of the grandchildren in the Dember family (his mother’s family) have used this ring in their ceremonies.
Double Happiness was all around at this wedding.
The Statler Hotel ballroom looked gorgeous for this wedding, per usual at Cornell
Love the change of dresses!
