If you’re planning a Country Club of Rochester Wedding, do yourselves a favor, and take a page, or TWO, out of Beth and Mike’s book.  The Country Club of Rochester is a beautiful venue with it’s classic older world interior design and architecture.  It makes you feel like your stepping into a place with history, and that brings a real warmth that is so perfect for a wedding day.  Beth and Mike could not have been more fun, easy going, or kind hearted.  We truly wish we could relive their wedding day at least one more time if not more.  They were amazing as a couple, and their wedding party was such a blast.  But on top of all that Beth’s event planning skills and attention to detail really brought the whole thing to life.  The table settings and flower arrangements really gave the dining room an entirely new look and feel.  Well done flowers and some candle light go such a long way.  Her vision was truly gorgeous.  We’ve had a few couples this year that used places for table “numbers” instead of actual numbers.  Usually places that mean something special to the couple.  Beth and Mike had a lot of good ones, but the Wegmans table was by far our favorite.

Olivia and Jeff did such a beautiful job of making their Ventosa Vineyards Wedding all their own.  But you really can’t go wrong with a finger lakes wedding, you just can’t.  Whether it be at a vineyard or a barn or an inn, whether your venue has a lake view or not, there is something so serenely magical about getting married in the finger lakes region.  And Ventosa Vineyards is no exception.  It was a true pleasure to be able to be a part of Olivia and Jeff’s big day.

Our dear clients Shannon and Andrew were blessed with a gorgeous day for their engagement shoot in Skaneateles, NY.  So it was only fitting that they get equally blessed with a beautiful and ever so lucky light rain on their wedding day.  When you’re having a Ventosa Vineyards Wedding, in the finger lakes region of New York State, the whole point is to have your ceremony at the top of the hill over looking the rows of grape vines that lead downward to the breathtaking view of Seneca Lake.  Of course, Shannon and Andrew were holding their breath all morning, to see if they would still get their chance at this gorgeous view.  It certainly was touch and go for a bit there.  But we ended up right there at the top of that hill, and a light drizzle covered us, making for an incredibly beautiful and meaningful ceremony.  “They” say rain on your wedding day means good luck, and we believe that in this particular case, it most certainly was so so so true.  We couldn’t be more happy for these two.

We couldn’t be more thrilled to finally be getting Amanda and Josh’s engagement shoot up on the blog.  We actually just saw them this past weekend again at another client of our’s wedding.  We love it when sets of friends hire us, and we get to see everyone so often.  We started things off at The Pan American Grill located right next to the Hotel At The Lafayette, a wedding venue we know all too well.  We couldn’t believe how quickly the camera began to love Amanda and Josh.  They were naturals from the moment we started.  Things got so steamy and intimate, we almost felt like we shouldn’t be there! But it was AWESOME!!  Afterwards we hit up Gallagher Beach Pier, and the magic just kept rolling. We finished things off at one of our favorite Buffalo NY spots, Delaware Park.  This place is becoming our home away from home, and we love it!!  Can’t say enough amazing things about this couple, can’t wait for next summer.

Needless to say, we absolutely love shooting at the Hotel At The Lafayette in Buffalo NY.  Our sister city over there by Lake Erie has really treated us well over the last year.  And the incredibly rewarding and heart warming experience of photographing Amanda and Brian’s wedding just made us love that city even more.  How could you not love this couple.  Check out Brian’s reaction to Amanda coming down the isle. Priceless.
