A Sleek, Timeless Wedding at Lincklaen House in Cazenovia, New York
Allison Mauro (32, works in HR staffing) was living in New York City when she agreed to go on a blind date with "a nice guy from Pittsburgh with a good job." "That was all I needed to hear to say yes!" she recalls. "I'd never been on a blind date before but I thought I had nothing to lose." And so Reid Mauro (33, works in commercial real estate) entered her life. Their first date went so well, that they quickly agreed to a second and a third, and within six months there were living together. "We both knew early on that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together and we didn't hesitate planning our new life," says Allison. A little less than a year later while they were on a run together in Central Park, Reid proposed with a solitaire, princess cut engagement ring. When it came time to plan their wedding, the couple settled on the little lake town of Cazenovia, New York—just a short distance from where Allison grew up. Historic Lincklaen House provided the backdrop for their entire wedding weekend and set a timeless tone for the affair. Inspired by their shared appreciation for a clean and minimal aesthetic, Allison and Reid decided on a sleek color scheme of ivory, champagne and green, which complemented the charming space.
