Leslie and Dan’s Breathtaking Homestead Wedding

Leslie and Dan’s Breathtaking Homestead Wedding

Leslie and Dan’s wedding was one that was full of heart from the smallest details - right up to the biggest ones. Leslie and Dan both come from families who have Farmed for several generations. Farming is what brought them together and so it was only fitting that the best place for them to celebrate this special day was right on their farm. It truly was breathtaking to experience this wedding, from the tent tucked away into their field to the pond and the the pasture - their property is beautiful.

From the bottom of our hearts we are honored to share our version of this wonderful day . We loved being there to capture the details, the love, and the joy as friends and family members embraced, laughed, danced and celebrating the love that brought them all together on this perfect day.

Rachel and Nick Wed at Sonnenberg Gardens

On an August afternoon, down a stone lined path and through beautiful gardens Rachel and Nick celebrated their love for each other and got married surrounded by everyone they love.

This Sonnenberg Gardens wedding was equal parts beautiful, heartfelt and fun! The gardens were a beautiful backdrop for this love story to take such a huge new step. Friendship seemed to be the theme of the day as we learned what amazing friends Nick and Rachel are to everyone they know - and in return, the support and love from their friends flooded over them on this very special day. As the night rolled on, this became one heck of a party as the dance floor was buzzing all night!

We are so excited to share this look at such an amazing wedding day!

Maureen and Rob are two fantastic people and we couldn't be happier for them that they are engaged!  Their love is so effortless; it's a friendship, its laughing, it's passion - it's all of the things that make a relationship great. We really enjoyed this session as we walked around Rochester - stopping at the Genesee Brewery where the two enjoy going on dates, Rochesters Cornhill area, and a last stop at Swift water.  It was a session full of silliness and personality and all of the things that make these two so wonderful, and so perfect for each other.

We were so excited to witness this wedding day - years in the making.  Jessica recalls fondly the way she felt for Matt even back in her teen years.  She has had a love for him that was sparked years ago and even though their lives briefly took different paths, destiny brought them right back to where they were always meant to be - together.  
The story of Matt and Jessica is one of strength and attests to the depth of their love and the power it has.

We met with Aaron and Julianne in Letchworth State park this summer only a few weeks prior to their wedding. The couple love hiking and exploring nature and especially Letchworth, as its our local treasure here in Mt. Morris.  It was a beautiful day and as we hiked with them, talked with them, and saw the depth of their love for each other - we became more and more excited about their upcoming wedding.  Their compatibility and chemestry was undeniable and we loved hearing the story of their engagement.  We had a lot if fun getting to know them as they reminisced about their pasts and shared their plans of all the things their future might hold.

Alan and Racheal - The Hall Wedding - Lass and Beau

Alan and Racheals love story started years ago, and hundreds of miles away when the pair met in a small bar.  Falling in love and having Ethan made this duo a family and started them off on an adventure that would fill their lives with more joy and happiness then either one could have ever dreamed for when they said their first "hello".  Their life is a blessed one - they work hard for the wonderful things they have, and they cherish their family, friends and each other.

 The day was truly filled with joy. In a beautiful country barn, Alan and Racheal had a rustic country wedding that brought friends and family from near and far to laugh, dance and celebrate.  We felt honored to be there to capture the day as these two said their vows and cemented the love and appreciation they have for each other by sharing a last name.  
Cheers to Alan, Racheal and Ethan - The Hall Family

Chris and Rachel are truly one of the most devoted couples we have ever photographed.  Their support for each other and dedication to the life they are building is front and center in their relationship.  Life for Chris and Rachel became a whirlwind as they quickly fell in love, became engaged, bought a home and filled it with their puppies.  Knowing their love for each other was so strong made photographing their wedding that much more special.

At Hickory Ridge Golf Resort in Holley NY, these two exchanged their vows and promised their forever to each other.  It was a beautiful ceremony and a fun and exciting reception and we are so excited to share it here!

Bryan and Julia's Barn Wedding, Normandy Orchards, Perry Ny

Bryan and Julia met while working together.  When Julia first saw Bryan, she said she new she was in trouble. Bryan was shy, and waited three months before he finally spoke to her. When they finally went out for the first time they decided to go for a hike in letchworth, and it must have been fate, because over a year later we walked through the park with them together, her in a wedding dress and him in a suit.  
Every detail of the day was wonderful from start to finish, and we feel so honored to have been there to capture such a perfect wedding!  Julia and Bryan completely adore each other and they wear their happiness all over their faces.  Congratulations to you Mr. and Mrs. Wood!!

Ian and Kahlie - South Wedge, Rochester NY

Ian and Kahlie - South Wedge, Rochester NY

We first met Ian and Kahlie when they responded to a post we made to help find homes for some neighborhood kittens - so, if that doesn't prove to you that they are awesome right away i don't what will.   They came and gave one of the kittens a great home, and we followed them on facebook and instagram to keep up with pictures of the cat, and also because we just instantly felt like they were super cool - and we weren't wrong.  Both of them being artists, we are always inspired by the work they post, and enjoy seeing the newest things they are creating. 
We really enjoyed our time strolling around their neighborhood in Rochesters South Wedge.  They are creative's, who live a pretty rad little life, with their cute-as-hell apartment full of antiques, art and their fuzzy friends as proof.  

We feel so lucky that the world brings people like this into our life. 
- Check out some photos of two of the coolest people we know being 100% in love!

As friends and family started arriving to Terry Hills Golf Course the whole room was filled with excitement.  Guests found their name and seating card in a card catalog - which was a perfect touch to Scott and Jessica's book themed wedding.  
We love weddings that are filled with both sentimental moments and laughter - and Scott and Jessica's perfectly illustrated both their fun side and their sincere love for each other.  With a room full of friends and family, it was clear that the room was filled with people who were abundantly happy for Scott and Jessica.

The Hindle Wedding - Nugget Hill - Lass & Beau

Nothing is better than being able to capture a love story that we believe so much in. Our friendship with Chris began so long ago and we can still remember hearing about his first date with Leanne and eventually having him open up to us about Leanne, and how strongly he felt for her.  Through the years we have felt inspired by them; seeing how they've pushed through the challenges presented to them, and watching them not only hurtle those obstacles, but do so with ease and confidence knowing that they had each other to lean on. Chris and Leanne - you are powerful people and we know nothing will get in your way!  We love you both very much and we are so proud to know you and to say that you are our friends!
