Morgan & Jeff {An Elegant Wedding at the Harro East Ballroom in Rochester, New York}

Harro-East-Ballroom-Rochester-New-York-Wedding_3514

From the Bride: “We wanted our wedding to first and foremost demonstrate what we believe marriage to be: a covenant between a man and a woman to love each other forever and reflect Christ’s love for His bride, the Church. Our commitment to Christ is the foundation of our relationship and for that reason the most important part of our day. Of course, we also like to have fun and we wanted to include sentimental details that would reflect our families, our history, becoming one, and I think we succeeded. :) I’m carrying a Spanish “abanico,” or fan, a gift from my maid of honor’s family, (who are from Seville, Spain) as a way for me to carry them with me that day. My “something blue” is the logo from one of my dad’s work shirts and my purse was handmade from my mother’s wedding dress as my “something old.” We couldn’t resist enlisting the service of a local coffee shop to represent our joint love of coffee at the reception, and some Italian heritage from my great-grandmother inspired the Italian cookies and chocolates to go along with the cake. Finally, Jeff and I met on the dance floor at a wedding and were seemingly whisked away into our own fairytale, so it is only appropriate that our wedding had that overarching “fairytale” feel…big dance floor, old theatre, princess dress, our name in lights, gorgeous candelabras filled with beautiful flower arrangements, and some movie scores from some of Jeff’s favorite movies to tie it all together. People told me that fairytales aren’t real, but sometimes I can’t help but think we found our very own. :) ”

Jeff & Morgan’s wedding was nothing short of a dream. From the gorgeous florals by Genesee Valley Florist to Warner Castle where we took bridal party portraits, and the amazing Harro East Ballroom providing a stunning backdrop for it all! Since we were unsure of the weather, the bride and groom rented some time at the Lamberton Conservatory, which I think was one of the best decisions of the day! The portraits we captured there made it feel like we took a quick trip to Florida and Arizona, and I couldn’t be more excited with how they turned out :)

I was thrilled to be shooting a wedding in my hometown of Rochester, New York, and my sister was able to be my second shooter for the day which made it all the more special. Jeff & Morgan – thank you for trusting us to capture these precious memories for you. Every part of your day was perfect, and it was an honor to celebrate with you, cry happy tears with you, and break it down on the dance floor with you ;) This wedding will always hold a special place in my heart and I hope you enjoy some of my favorite images from your fairytale day!

Jamie & Corey {A Classically Chic Wedding at the Excelsior Room in Wooster, Ohio}

A-Grey-And-Pink-Classic-Romantic-Ohio-MidWest-Wedding_3299

From the Bride: “We wanted our wedding day to be more than just a day in a pretty dress and a suit. Our day is about the two of us becoming one, by the powerful grace of God. We are chasing after a love for each other that reflects the love Christ has for us, and we wanted this day to emulate that as well. We want our wedding day to be a huge celebration of the gift of marriage. We have been together for 6 years and are so excited for what is to come.”

Jamie and Corey’s wedding at The Excelsior Room in Wooster, Ohio was a dream to be a part of. Jamie found me through Instagram, and she and Corey traveled 3 hours to do their engagement shoot with me in Ohio. (Already this proves how amazing they are!) From the beginning their mantra was – “We trust your creative eye. Do what you do best!” Seriously?! I could not have asked for a sweeter couple who made my job so easy and so fun because I knew they were up for anything, and they valued creativity and quality for their images.

From the moment I arrived at the bridal suite and saw the raspberry and grey color palette, I knew this would be a good day ;) The colors complemented each other so well for the bridal party and floral arrangements! The bride and groom gave me a full hour for portraits of the two of them after the first look, which made me SO excited for the images we would create together. The love these two share spans 6 years, and it’s so obvious that Corey adores Jamie. He was so precious to watch during the first look, and seeing him shed a few tears as she walked down the aisle to him as his bride made me well up behind the camera. These two also know how to throw a killer party! Their bridal party was so much fun, and the dance floor was full from the moment the music started playing. I loved every minute of celebrating this wedding day, and had the hardest time narrowing down favorites for this post! Jamie gave me extra time to capture details, as well as time with her and her bridesmaids (seriously – such a dream bride!) and I’m thrilled with the results! Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy scrolling through this gorgeous wedding day :)

Tori & Jeremy {Shabby Chic, Outdoor Farm Wedding in Xenia, Ohio}

RusticOhioBarnWedding_2508

From the bride: “Our inspiration is personalization. We want our day to be so unique and knew that if we focused on our favorite things, not only will it be perfectly unique, but fun and vibrant too. We love spending time at Jeremy’s family farm and want our guests to sit back, and relax, just like we love to do there. We are incorporating family heirlooms such as Jeremy’s grandparents tractors and my great grandparents church pew. We’ve spent a year searching for other neat pieces like a setee for our head table, a vintage menu board, and fire place mantles. Overall we are most excited to dance for the first time surrounded by our friends and family with the farm fields in the background.”
From the moment I received Tori’s email inquiring about my availability to shoot her wedding, I knew that we would be friends. With a shared love of Starbucks, and the fact that she owned a photography business herself, we hit it off right away, and I couldn’t wait to celebrate her marriage to the love of her life. Although it rained for the first half of the day, it didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits! Tori and the girls got ready at a historic hotel in downtown Wilmington, which made for some stunning indoor bridal portraits! Just wait until you see how gorgeous she looks ;) The rain stopped at the end of the ceremony just in time for Tori & Jeremy to ride to the reception in the tractor that Jeremy surprised his bride with.  The reception was filled with gorgeous, sentimental details and amazing florals designed by the bride’s mother! Tori owns her own store (Check it out here —> http://www.tlanedesigns.com/ SO cute!) with some gorgeous collectible pieces, and I loved that she incorporated them into her wedding day!
Tori and Jeremy – thank you for welcoming me into your lives and hearts. I felt like one of the family on your wedding day, and the love and care that you showered on me and everyone around you made your day truly amazing. Your entire day – from the first look with your grandparents, to the first time Jeremy laid eyes on you as a bride, and the looks you shared during your first dance – was so meaningful, emotional, and intimate. You are surrounded by so many family and friends that clearly cherish you both, and I know they will join me in wishing you a long life together filled with joy, laughter, and ‘bunches of love’ :) Enjoy some of my favorites from the day!
