Rochester, NY Engagement Session | Brandon + Courtney

She was suppose to be going to a concert with her BFF. Her girlfriend’s brother was the opening act that night. Although the music was good, it wasn’t what caught her attention.

If you spend any amount of time with Courtney and Brandon you cannot help but smile. Their love is electric! Laughter, joy and playfulness encompasses them.

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.

XOXO,
MK

Lindsay was overjoyed to have finally met her soul mate, but planning was held at an arms length with a bit of sorrow in her heart. Finally, the decision was made. The day that would begin the rest of their lives would be August 6, 2016, Her late mothers birthday. Amy may not be there in body, but in spirit, she was there for every moment of her daughters special day.

Lindsay and Randy had their small rustic wedding at a family home in Canandaigua NY. The barn nestled in the Finger Lakes was decorated with beautiful white chandeliers, old bottles, bistro lights, white picture frames and arrayed with elegant planters of flowers. Tree limbs were hung from the sides of the barn, the majestic horses peeked through the doors for a first hand look of the day’s events.

Amelia, Randy’s daughter, could not stop smiling and talking about “our wedding”. Her big eyes glared at the beautiful new member of her family. She stayed by Lindsay’s side for every step of the day.
