I was so excited to photograph to the Cub Room for a Wedding reception to celebrate this adorable couple, Mary and Vince.
They were referred to me very close to their party, and lucky for me, I was still available.  I only got to know them a little bit through email,
but when I watched them in person as they celebrated their marriage with friends and family, I could immediately see and feel their bond together.
Such a fun group of guests all so happy to wish them well.

We met at their home for some group photos on their deck before we were off to the reception.
I got to meet their son, family, and friends and share in some laughs and quiet
moments together.
So cute together, congratulations!

The Cub Room is located in the South Wedge and is an old industrial building that’s been completely restored.  Read about the owners and how they’ve
brought this incredible piece of history here to Rochester!
The food, the atmosphere, the service…the cocktails! …top notch.

DJ Alykhan kept the party going all night long, he was amazing!  He’s won a bunch of City awards for best DJ and I could see why right away.
His style, professionalism, fun and charismatic personality, and of course his music is so unique!
He played such a perfect mix of decades at The Cub Room, while blending and adding in extra clips so creatively…
I highly recommend him for any size party, low key, or over the top….
he definitely will keep your floor dancing no matter what, great to finally meet you!!

It was such a treat to photograph the bridal shower winner from the Rochester Indie Wedding bridal show!  They held a raffle to win photography, favors, food, and cake!
The winner lived in Buffalo, so she chose her location to be the Parkside Lodge in Delaware Park which was perfect for her fun and festive shower.
I loved all the pink with pops of yellow…so tropical!

Here’s a little piece of sunshine for you! These adorably festive pineapple favors were created by Sweet Honey Events and they are totally sustainable.
“All the glass was sourced from thrift stores and the tags are made from elephant poo poo paper!” … Did she say poo poo?! I didn’t even know we could do that?!
Reduce, reuse, recycle….and look how cute!

The incredibly delicious food and appetizers were cooked with love by Private Knives Catering…she loves attention to detail, and design.  She placed pops of flowers
within her presentation, along with colorful napkins and cute little toothpicks…everything looked amazing.

When I saw the first announcement for the new Cheri Marie Salon and Bridal Lounge here in Rochester, NY I was instantly amazed at the space!
The bright, cheery, sunlit room with high ceilings and gorgeous wood beams is completely unique and exciting!
The more I read about it, I realized I recognized the owner…her beautiful smile is unforgettable.  I knew I had seen her at a previous wedding with one of my Brides.
I looked through my photos, and there she was!
She did such a wonderful job on all of the bridesmaids, so pretty!
I got in touch with her so I could take a peek and congratulate her too!
The great part about it is that it’s not just a beautiful space for the girls to get ready before a Wedding, but it’s a hair salon too!
They can have their hair and makeup done and then relax upstairs in the lounge,
it’s such a great idea and I’m excited to hopefully photograph a lucky bride there soon!
