 Julianna + Ethan’s Wedding at the Niagara Falls Conference Center



Getting Ready

The day is finally here for Julianna and Ethan’s wedding at the Niagara Falls Conference Center! Let me start out by saying that Julianna and Ethan’s wedding day, 8/18/18, was the most sought after day of the year! I don’t think there has ever been so many weddings on one date!

Julianna and her bridesmaids started their day at The Makeup and Beauty Parlour in Niagara Falls, NY. One the talented ladies finished the bridesmaids hair and makeup, the girls headed back to Julianna and Ethan’s house in Devaux to get ready. Meanwhile, Ethan and the groomsmen were at The Sheraton at the Falls to get dressed.  Once dressed, the boys all headed to Jon Fres Bar & Restaurant, for a family tradition of taking 3 shots for good luck before the ceremony.

The Wedding

Julianna and Ethan’s Ceremony took place at The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph , where Julianna walked down an aisle that she had special ordered as a surprise to ethan. The aisle read, “Of all the walks we’ve taken, this one is my favorite!”  The ceremony is filled with laughter and happy tears and finishes with a beautiful bubble exit!

When it came to the portrait session, Julianna wanted something a bit more rustic and natural looking. The owner of Sanger Farms was kind enough to let us use his beautiful property for their day! The property is filled with fields, a pond and really pretty barns. Not to mention if you have never had their pies, drop everything you are doing immediately and head to Youngstown NY for their baked goods!

The wedding at the Niagara Falls Conference Center was decorated beautifully with purple uplighting, and massive flower arrangements on every table. From the speeches to the dancing their night is filled with a ridiculous amount of fun and laughter, check out their slideshow to see more of that (especially the bouquet toss!) We finished up the evening with the entire bridal party out on old falls street with sparklers!

Thank you both so much for being so warm and making us feel so welcomed on your special day!

Alexis + Bobby’s wedding at O’Brien’s Sleepy Hollow

Their Story

Today is the day that you all get to learn more and see Alexis and Bobby’s wedding at O’Brien’s Sleepy Hollow! Alexis and Bobby met while in a summer entrepreneurship program called the sandbox. They were both getting out of relationships at the time that their friendship began. As their friendship grew, they soon found themselves talking to each other more and more throughout the day. After weeks of 12 hour a day chats, Bobby asked Alexis out on a date to Knox Farms and Buffalo Brew Works, and she said yes!

In January of 2017, Bobby asked Alexis to marry him at Brew Works, the place where they had their first date. She gladly accepted. However their joy was dampened by some complex dynamics from his family. Not wanting their engagement story to have such a negative vibe, Bob kept saying that he wanted to re-propose to make it a happier experience.

In October Bob put his plan into action. He got out of work early and took Alexis up to Rochester to see one of their favorite groups The Migos. After the concert they had the opportunity to meet them and Bob proposed, again!  Shortly after the re-proposal, Alexis sees that Quavo had snapchatted their proposal! Check out the video below!

We've been keeping a little secret, but @theshaderoom posted a video that someone took so cat's out of the bag! Bob and I got engaged (for the second time) at the Migos concert on Friday. To be clear, our first engagement was never "off," Bob had just been wanting to surprise me with something more romantic (yes, the Migos are romantic to us bc we love them) and totally out of the blue because when we got engaged back in January life was so hectic and there was a million things going on…. and people who took it upon themselves to announce our engagement before we were ready to. I was totally surprised when he left work early and whisked me away to Rochester. (I actually thought we were just going to the Strong Museum haha.) We saw the @Migos and met them and he proposed!! Here's a video right from @quavohuncho's snapchat! I can't believe Quavo snap chatted the proposal, and @offsetyrn and @yrntakeoff were so sweet and excited for us. It was a night to remember! Thank you to my love @bigshotbob808 for being a great partner and agreeing that love is about being intentional and committed. I'm more excited than ever to marry you in 10 months!!!! 👰🏾

Their Day

Their wedding at O’brien’s Sleepy Hollow was on a gorgeous August day. Alexis got dressed at their home in Orchard Park and then they headed over to Knox farms for their first look and portraits. Their ceremony took place in front of the pond at O’brien’s Sleepy Hollow. Their vows, I can’t even begin to explain how beautiful, emotional and heartfelt they were. There was not a dry eye in the audience. Which isn’t surprising seeing as Alexis is a published author and poet and that they own their own company that writes custom wedding vows and toasts! Check out their website XO Juliet

One of my favorite things about these two was how much they didn’t want the traditional wedding reception. No corny songs, no traditional wedding music. They wanted a party, with a capital P. DJ Mr.Illmatic (Mo) delivered just that. An hour of dancing before dinner was even served, followed by hours of everyone at the wedding getting down on the dance floor all night long. It was hands down on of the most fun wedding I have ever documented! Check out their slideshow to see some of their amazing dancing images!

From realizing our mutual love of Real Housewives of Beverly hills and that we were both sorted into Slytherin, I have so enjoyed getting to know Alexis and Bobby better over the past year. You are both a wonderful strong couple and I can’t wait to see where life takes you! Thank you so much for letting Marc and myself be a part of your beautiful day!

Wedding at the Admiral Room – Whitney + Mike

I have been so excited for Whitney and Mike’s wedding at the Admiral room! Whitney and Mike met while they were both still in high school at a local tractor pull. They had a bunch of mutual friends and started talking that night and have been together ever since. Last winter Mike asked Whitney to talk their dogs for a walk at Zoar Valley. Reluctant at first because of the cold, Mike finally convinced her. When they got down to the creek, Mike asked her to marry him and had his brother there to document the whole thing!

For their wedding day Whitney wanted to stick with an elegant romantic style that matched the beauty of the Admiral room at the Marin. Keeping the decorations at a minimum to let the room shine. Their ceremony took place inside the main room, with the gold chiavari chairs light adorned with flowers. After the ceremony we quickly headed outside for a few portraits until the heavens opened up and we ran back in to avoid being poured on. As luck would have it The Admiral room is also stunning for indoor portraits as well! Once portraits were finished Whitney and Mike joined the party with the rest of their friends and family. From first dances through to ridiculously fun dancing they had a fabulous wedding at the admiral room.

We so enjoyed getting to know the both of you, along with your friends and family better! Thank you both so much for allowing is to be apart of your beautiful day!

Wedding at Shadow Lake Golf Club – Wedding Photography Rochester NY

Their Day

They met in high school, where their friends encouraged them that they should go out on a date. Jake asked Keri to go to ball with him and they started dating towards the end of senior year.  Their wedding day at Shadow Lake Golf club in Rochester NY was such a beautiful day.

The girls started the day by having their hair and makeup done at Solutions Studio and Spa, and then going to Shadow Lake to get dressed. The guys hung our at Jake’s parents house while they got ready.

Their ceremony took place in front of Shadow Lake with all of their friends and family watching as they said “I do.” After dinner they cut their cookie cake, which was topped with their family heirloom cake topper, and then danced the night away with their friends and family!

Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your wonderful day! We wish you both all the happiness in the world!

Wedding at the Doubletree – Niagara Falls, NY – Sara and Jack

Their Engagement

So this wedding is a tad bit more personal to me because its my freakin’ baby cousin!!!!! I have been looking forward to Sara and Jack’s wedding at the Doubletree in Niagara Falls, NY since they got engaged in the winter of 2017.  I remember getting the message from Sara’s sister that they were having a “very important surprise anniversary party” for them at Jack’s new restaurant Cask and Cow in Lewiston, NY.  We arrived and were told that the “very important surprise party” was actually a rouse for a surprise engagement party!

Jack had taken Sara out to dinner for their anniversary and then ice skating after. We all watching from the windows  in the dark restaurant while Sara and Jack were ice skating across the street. Jack dropped to one knee and asked Sara to marry him, where she half bent over and crying said yes! They then came across the street to another wonderful surprise for Sara, all of her closest friends and family gathered together to celebrate their new engagement!

Their Day

The girls started their day out with the fabulous ladies at The Makeup Parlour! After their hair and makeup was finished they headed back to the doubletree in Niagara Falls, to get dressed. Meanwhile guys were hanging out downstairs in the bar laughing and having a great time. When the time came, the girls all went into the limo and we made our way to Karpeles Manuscript Museum North Hall in Buffalo. Sara and Jack said “I do” inside the beautiful hall, then headed over to delaware park for their portraits.

A few months before the wedding, Sara had jokingly tagged Jack in a wedding post with alpacas and told him that they needed them at their wedding too. This gave her bridesmaids a fantastic idea, they ordered alpacas and had them waiting out on the patio at the doubletree as a surprised wedding gift to Sara and Jack. They were a huge hit, everyone loved them and wanted to pet and get their picture taken with them. The rest of the night was filled with moving speeches, beautiful first dances, and a ton of dancing!

Sara Jane, I love you so much, you deserve all of the happiness in the world and I can’t wait to see what lies in store for the both of you! Jack, we love you too and welcome to the family!!!!
