Reagan and Dan were married in a traditional church ceremony at Hamilton College followed by a reception at Harding Farm in Clinton, N.Y. on June 28. “There’s always something special about stepping back into the place where you first fell in love,” Christopher Szulwach, the photographer, said. “That’s exactly why these two traveled back to their alma mater from Washington, D.C. The beautiful chapel (the oldest of its style in the United States), and the Hamilton College’s campus was the perfect place to gather family and friends for the ceremony because of its rich history.” The bride wore a strapless lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a pair of pointe shoes, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a heart patterened tie. Bridesmaids wore short navy blue chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of sunflowers wrapped in twine. Once the glass was broken, shouts of “mazel tov”  could be heard, near and far. “Everyone then made the short, mile and half, trip to Harding Farm for the tented reception,” he said. A chalkboard sign directed them to “find a photo to find your table.” Tables were decoated with checkered linens, mason jar centerpieces, and origami folded napkins at each place setting. “The big day was full of personal touches: sunflowers everywhere in memory of Reagan’s father and her special memories planting them with him each year as a child, Dan’s tie tack, which was passed down to him from his father, who is also no longer with us, Reagan’s bouquet was wrapped in one of her father’s old ties, the custom embroidery in Dan’s suit, and the fun selection of pies instead of cake,” Christopher Szulwach, the photographer, said. “Now, this is a wedding I would call classicly trendy!”
