My little sis is a Mrs!

Monday, July 21st, 2008

Whew, it’s been a crazy couple of weeks here!  My sister Maureen got married on Saturday the 19th, and I had just about forgotten what it was like to be on the other side of a wedding! :) It was my first time as Maid of Honor, and it’s quite a job, but worth every second.  The speech is definitely the scariest part. ;)

And of course I did not take one single picture alllll day!  Can you believe it?  I decided with all the other things I had to take care of that I would leave my camera at home so I didn’t have to keep an eye on it… it was an amazing day.  I’m so happy for Maureen and Brian!

The weekend before the wedding was the bachelorette party wine tour, which was a blast.  I decided to schedule myself a break weekend for the 26th, but I’ll be back shooting on August 2nd for Rachel and Olivier’s wedding down in Ithaca!

Cristyn and Mark’s Honeoye Falls Wedding

Tuesday, July 8th, 2008

I’m always a little extra excited for a wedding where I’ve done an engagement shoot with the couple.  It’s always a fun time to get to know eachother and get used to being photographed- we learned at their engagement that Mark has a special talent for posing!

Their wedding was just beautiful, the ceremony was at Cristyn’s mom’s house with a reception at the Rabbit Room in Honeoye Falls.

Gorgeous Cristyn!

Love this shot of Cristyn’s mom helping her with the necklace.

This was where Cristyn promised to laugh at Mark, as well as love and cherish him. :D I love funny little moments like these at the ceremony!

I love it when a couple is totally focused on eachother during the first dance.

The groomsmen, in classic “Top Gun” style, serenaded Cristyn and Mark with “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’”… they did not hold back!

Cristyn and Mark, I had a blast with you and your friends! Thanks so much for having me at your wedding.
Don’t forget to send me Alaska pictures! :)

Tiffany and Victor’s Rochester Wedding

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008

Tiffany and Victor got hitched at Deerfield Country Club in Brockport this weekend.  The ceremony was planned for outdoors, but they decided to play it safe and have it indoors after the hysteria-inducing weather forecasts (gale force winds! torrential rain! hail! four horsemen!  Well, maybe not the last one.)  The weather turned out to be pretty gorgeous all day, but I liked the feeling of the indoor ceremony- the room was a bit on the small side for the number of guests, so it had a really intimate feeling with people all standing together.  Once everyone got into the larger reception area, they certainly made use of the space and had a rocking party!

Tiffany has the prettiest hazel eyes!

Victor sees his lovely bride for the first time.

Tiffany jumped the gun a little bit during the vows, it was really cute and had everyone laughing, even the judge!  No cold feet here. :)

Sparkly!

I love a good father-daughter dance tearjerker!  I think we can all relate. :)

We headed out for some portraits on the course, but started with a cool shot in the classic car the girls rode to the club in.  I think this one was a Chevy something?  I’m sure someone can enlighten me!
