Eagle Vale Golf Club Wedding | Rochester, NY | Ted & Lisa

Ted and Lisa are truly the shining example of sweetness. From the moment I met them their love for one another as well as their families just radiated. Their souls full of kindness and devotion. You could see the excitement pouring from them as we talked about their day and the plans they had in motion.

Their wedding day was no different. The Lord blessed them with a beautiful autumn day. The leaves and sun held a golden sparkle. The sunlight beamed gloriously through the stained glass windows as they united in holy matrimony.

Ted and Lisa said “i do” at the Greek Orthodox Church on South Ave in Rochester NY. The over joyed families celebrated the night away at Eagle Vale Golf Club. The evening was filled with fabulous entertainment provided by Turner Music Productions. The lovely flowers and center pieces flawlessly designed by Genesee Valley Florist and the festive cake was accompanied by an extravagant ice cream bar from Moonlight Creamery.

Ted and Lisa I wish you all the happiness in the world. May your lives be filled with constant joy and devotion to
each other.

Inspire Me!

Well 2012 has come and gone. I must admit it has been a crazy, but blessed year. I had my busiest season and made some AMAZING friends. I got married and became a mom to two awesome boys. I could not be more excited.

For 2013 I want to start the year off with a personal project. This is where I look to you, my loyal supporters. I need inspiration and suggestions. My goal is to dedicate February and March to capturing daily images that tell a story.

What will that story be? You tell me! The suggestion that I choose will win some pretty cool stuff. So put on your thinking caps! “Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh the THINKS you can think up if only you try!” -Dr. Seuss

RIT Inn & Conference Center Wedding | Rochester NY | Bobby + Christine

It all started at Lima Christian School. Bobby and Christine were in the same class with the same interests. They shared a passion for sports, watched each other play every game, and they were both named the Athlete of the Year for their league. They constantly got in trouble during school for talking too much and laughing too loudly, to the point where the teachers separated them in class. They were known as the “perfect couple” and everyone knew they would one day get married. They were always best friends and finally one day in high school, that friendship turned into something more. They were walking in Tubbs Park in Lima, NY when Bobby asked Christine to be his girlfriend. They stayed strong together throughout high school and college. During a walk at Mendon Park, Bobby asked Christine to marry him. Without any hesitation, she said YES! On March 24th, 2012, Christine and Bobby  publicly announce their love for each other and started a new chapter of their lives together. May your love continue to grow as each day passes. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Nichols!
