Claudia & John’s Appel Inn Wedding

We have the sweetest wedding on the blog today. I am so extremely happy for Claudia and John who tied the knot at the Appel Inn in Altamont NY. You may remember these two from their engagement session we posted in the spring. They had everything that you need for a great wedding; beautiful dress, wonderful weather, great flowers and of course a sweet love story. Claudia and John met years ago in Chemistry class – their paths took different directions and to different cities but eventually they found their way back to each other. As you can see there was so much laughter and love – just the things we love at a YTK Wedding!

John is slightly obsessed with old barns so the Appel Inn was a perfect location for us.
