Would Cornell let you take some pictures there? Willard Straight, the Library, and Sage Chapel are all right in the same little area, and all have beautiful spots. Not sure how tough that would be on 5/15, though. Will your reception still be at the park if it rains?

Cornell would actually work for that weekend as graduation weekend is not until memorial day weekend. It may be the law school grad but that doesn’t make campus insane.   If the AD white house is open, there is parking nearby and it has some great indoor interior. Expecially if you are looking at the morning, you would be fine (and there is free parking)! If you are looking for something more modern, Duffield hall would be great.  You may also be able to go up into the clocktower to take some pics or the Johnson art museum.

Non-cornell: The state theatre might let you in for some photos or Museum of the Earth. The cayuga nature center might also be fun.  What about some of the B&B’s downtown or Dewitt mall… What about using the old mill at upper treman park from some of your photos?  Pm or email me if you are interested in more ideas or campus parking logistics.

What about the farmer’s market? I went to a wedding there 2 years ago and it’s lovely, with the view of the lake and a very rustic (but covered) setting…

There are some beautiful pavilions in Watkins Glen but all the links on the town site are dead.  Does Buttermilk or Taughannock Falls have any pavilions?

I’m probably not much help, sorry!

Where will you / bridal party / groomsmen / etc. be staying? There are some gorgeous inns, b&bs, etc. Maybe get a room or two anyway, and ask if you could take some pics there (you might get some gorgeous getting-ready shots). That way, you have an automatic back-up place!

I agree with aliciareneephotography… we are doing our photos at a B&B outside of Rochester that has big, red barns.  And it was FREE to do the photos there for an hour.  Maybe look into something like that?

I would definitely not recommend the farmers market on a saturday.  It will be a mad house with lots of people, difficult to take pictures, and parking is time consuming no matter the weather. 

I re-read your post and the top story of the Cayuga nature center would probably fit what you are looking for.  They have big open room with a fire place on the main floor.  Another option to check, would be the barn at the Lab of Ornithology.
