I think this was the most last minute Wedding I have ever been chosen for ~ 2 months before the Big Day! I was thrilled to have the opportunity to meet Liz and Dan ~ they’re HILARIOUS! Once again, this couple chose me through a referral…this time, the Brides Matron of Honor was someone that worked with my Husband. She had been following my work online ever since he showed her images I’d taken of our baby girl…she had a baby around the same time that year! Once her friend was engaged, she recommended me; Thank You Natalie!
Liz loved my work, and it was also very important to her to keep the services ‘within the family.’ I loved that ~ same idea as buying local…supporting our Rochester businesses, thank you Liz!
We had to get our Engagement session portraits done right away so I had time to get them edited/enhanced for their Guest Book. If you look through the images, you’ll see what crazy chemistry these two have…too funny! (The guests kept coming up to me at the Wedding telling me how great the book was too ~ I love them; such a great keepsake!)
Liz and Dan had the PERFECT weather for their Wedding Day; low 70′s, beautiful blue sunny skies, and a light breeze. ahhhhhh.
Once I made my way up to the Bridal suite of the downtown Rochester Hyatt, I was immediately taken a back with the view of the city, wow! The dress HAD to go in the window, I love it. I only wish I could remove the curtains to see more of the view!
I LOVE this great look from Liz…she was SO excited to put on her dress…she looked like a glamorous movie star! And so much sparkle!
Liz, you are beautiful ♥
Time to head to the chapel ~ how unique, a Wedding at the Memorial Art Gallery!
As the girls laughed, relaxed, and waited in a back room, one of them looked out a window and noticed the Groomsmen walking in. Too funny, there’s Dan in the lead, wearing his favorite cap, talking on his cell. Classic.
Nice. Look at that handsome smile!
Liz! Absolutely stunning
Aw! The new Mr. & Mrs. ♥
And we’re off to the Rochester Club Ballroom!
The coordinator, and staff did an amazing job all night long. They were so attentive to the guests, the food was seriously delicious and the atmosphere was so warm and inviting.
3 hilarious champagne toasts…what a pair!
Can’t remember the last time we were served a soup course at a Wedding…mmmm delicious, potato!
Mother of the Bride ~ she was a hoot!
Aw, first dance…nice to see a loving gaze…for a little while anyway
I was SO prepared and waiting for Dan to smash Liz’s face with cake…who knew they’d be sweet, gentle, and romantic with it.
I think they laughed more because they DIDN’T smash it!
Their cake was a cheese cake, but for everyone else, there were plates and plates of different types of pies…wow, it was an incredible display. I feel like I can reach out and grab this
Ok, I’m throwing this one in here because this was MY table… ‘Fun Fourteen!’ Hi guys!
Let’s get this party started!
Typically, Weddings play hit music, but tonight, it was all about the classics and our DJ Brian from Drum King Productions was a hit!
There was so much dancing at one point, the floor was bouncing up and down! We literally ‘shook’ the dance floor! LOL
p.s. this guy is smiling on the inside ~ that’s how he rolls
What an incredible party ~ Congratulations Liz & Dan!
With love & huge smiles,
Please check back in a month or so to see their entire gallery; I’ll have information listed here.
