James and Tori’s Wedding at George Eastman House

I know I am always excited to share a blog post, but I am going to be completely honest, I am a tiny bit biased with this one. Why, do you ask? Not only are Tori and James freakin’ adorable, but they also happened to have their wedding at George Eastman House in Rochester, NY.  The George Eastman House has been my favorite place on earth since I was taken there on a photography field trip in 9th grade. To put a cherry on top of that, their reception was at the beautiful Wintergardens by Monroe in Rochester, NY  which happens to be another one of my favorite places to shoot weddings (insert giddy clap.)

Tori and James’ day started out much like any wedding day. Bridesmaids bustling around in Robes while the bride is getting the finishing touches on her hair and makeup. Once tori was dressed we all headed over to the George Eastman House for their first look. His look when he sees her for the first time is so incredibly sweet!

I hope you enjoy viewing their day as much as Marc and I enjoyed photographing it and spending time with both of them and their friends and family!

Brittney and Cory’s Avanti Mansion Wedding, Buffalo NY

I feel like it has been forever since I blogged (probably because it has been 😂) I just had to share Brittney and Cory’ beautiful Avanti mansion wedding.  From the first moment I talked on the phone with Brittney her and I just clicked. I got to meet Cory and their engagement session, and we had a ball together.  I knew their wedding was going to be spectacular!  From the beautiful hand-lettered details to snuggles with their little man Gio, it did not disappoint.  Their friends and family were so happy and excited for these two to be married you could feel it through the entire day. Thank you both so much for having us document your wedding, we loved getting to know both of you and your friends and family!

Jordyn + Ben’s Wedding at Pearl Street at the Webb Buffalo, NY

Jordyn and Ben’s vision for their wedding at Pearl street at the Webb in Buffalo was one that is near to my heart. Books, and lots of them.  Their Library theme was consistent through their whole reception from the moment you walk in and get your “Library” seating card. To their favorite books that decorated the tables.

They met each other on Tinder, finally meeting for the first time at Starbucks. They sat and talked for hours over hot chocolate, having more in common than they realized. Ben surprised Jordyn on her birthday weekend with a trip to Chicago to see Hamilton.  That is where he asked her to marry him!

Thank you both so much for having us document your day with you! I will miss our Dr. Who and who is the better narrator of Harry Potter discussion (even though we both know its Jim Dale lol.) I wish you both the very best!!

Wedding at Mill Creek Golf Course Churchville, NY | Allie + Jon

 

Allie and Jon’s wedding at Mill Creek Golf Course in Churchville NY is HERE!!  Their day was such a wonderful one starting with all the girls getting ready at Allie and Jon’s house in Rochester, NY.  While Allie and her girls were there having their hair and makeup done by the talented Erin hills and Katie Shane, the boys were at a nearby hotel getting ready for the day.

When Allie and Jon had first started planning their wedding they had looked into having their wedding ceremony at St. Johns Cathedral Park in the city of Rochester.  Even though they loved the space it was a bit too small for what they were looking for.  When they came across Mill creek Golf course and knew that it was the perfect location for their ceremony and wedding!

Allie and Jon had lovingly spent months restoring the beautiful oak doors that were from Allie’s grandparent’s home.  They used these doors as the backdrop for their ceremony that took place on a hill that overlooked the city of Rochester.  After they said “I do” it was off to the beautiful outdoor tent for cocktails and snacks with their loved ones! After dinner and some dancing, the firepit was started and it was s’mores for everyone!

Thank you, Allie and Jon, for making us feel so welcomed, we loved getting to know both of you and your wonderful families. We wish you both a lifetime of happiness!!

Wedding at Buffalo Botanical Gardens | Marie & Austin

 

Marie and Austin’s wedding at Buffalo Botanical Gardens was a pretty magical day! Marie and Austin are the very definition of high school sweethearts. Not only that, but they were also crowned as prom king and queen (seriously, how cute is that?!) They had the same homeroom and shared a lot of classes starting in middle school, but it wasn’t until they started technology classes together in 10th grade, that they became friends. As Sophomore year progressed, so did their friendship. It wasn’t until the beginning of Junior year that they finally began dating. A little over four years later they Austin asked Marie to marry him in the living room of her apartment.

We had 3 hours for portraits for them, so we had a lot of choices when it came to locations. The weather was super iffy so we stayed at the botanical gardens for a while just in case it started to rain!
