Michelle and Mike’s Finger Lakes Wedding!

Monday, September 15th, 2008

Another fabulous wedding!  I was excited to head down to meet Michelle in Watkins Glen… we hadn’t met before, but she was so sweet in her emails and on the phone, I was really looking forward to it.  Here’s the lovely bride getting her makeup done at the salon…

Then we headed over to the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel, which I am seriously in love with. This place is goooorgeous. It’s eco-friendly and the decor is so fresh and modern, I love the bold wall colors!

Michelle’s dress is so pretty!

Did a few pictures with the guys at the hotel and the girls at Watkins Glen State Park.

Before the ceremony at Logan Ridge Estates, Michelle took a peek at the reception room, her reaction was so cute!

Coordinator Cynthia Converse did an absolutely fabulous job!
And while I’m at it, Red Newt Bistro hit it out of the park… yum!

I love tall centerpieces like this!

Then we headed downstairs for the ceremony- it was originally meant to be outside, but it rained most of the day so they set up indoors… but that certainly didn’t dampen spirits!

They are so sweet together!


The first dance… they are so in love it was like nobody else was in the room!

And father daughter…

The guys gave Michelle a traditional fraternity welcome- class!

And a few portraits between raindrops.

Congratulations Michelle and Mike, thank you so much for having me at your wedding! Have an amazing time in Greece… if you need someone to photograph your vacation, I am available… just putting it out there! ;)

Danielle and Trevor’s Ithaca Wedding

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

I met Danielle and Trevor last fall, we headed to Ithaca for an engagement shoot and I had so much fun with them.  We shot around town and went around the Cornell campus a bit as well, then they treated me to a tasty lunch before I headed back home!
I’d been looking forward to their wedding for the whole year, and the inital forecasts were that the remnants of hurricane whicheveroneican’tkeeptrackanymore was supposed to be heading into New York, and I was really keeping my fingers crossed that we wouldn’t be rained out- we’d had a pretty grey day for the e-shoot as well. Fortunately, it ended up being a bit overcast, but no rain! I met up with the girls at Satori Day Spa for the getting ready, everyone was nice and chill, enjoying the morning.

Beautiful dress!

Sage Chapel is so pretty.


I love that the officiant stepped to the side during the rings, it made a nice clean background- thanks!!

Yay bubbles!

First dance!

This was a serious group of dancers… people were up dancing between meal courses, which I don’t think I’ve ever seen!

And some portraits around the beautiful campus!

Look familiar? :) I think I figured out that this is an English Weeping Beech, I love it!

Congratulations you two, I have had such a great time working with you!!

Andra and Joe’s Rochester Wedding

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

If I have one word to describe Andra and Joe’s wedding, it is definitely FUN!  I met up with the girls at a salon down the street from my house, Artistic Designs, on Park Ave, and they were already in full-swing… there’s nothing like hanging out with the girls on the morning of a wedding, everyone is excited and just having a great time with hair, makeup and other preparation.

Lovely Andra…

This girl’s skin is flawless, everyone was jealous! :)

I loved the green bridesmaid dresses… hey, I’m Irish, what can I say?  I love green!

Curious kiddos before the ceremony :)


I love this, Andra only had eyes for Joe during her walk down the aisle… so happy!

How cute are they?!

At the reception, Andra and Joe had dance lessons for their guests, and they had a killer first dance!  Fred and Ginger look out…


This was such a fun crowd (told ya!) the dance floor was packed all night long!

Gotta love a singalong… this was either Bon Jovi or Neal Diamond, ha ha

LOVE this shot!

And here are some portraits from outside of the Country Club of Rochester…

Congratulations Andra and Joe, thank you for having me!
