When Sarah and Wade contacted me about having their wedding in Upstate NY at Sarahs family barn, I was beyond excited. Starting from scratch for a wedding can be daunting but making each detail fit the bride and groom is so rewarding.
We worked together for just over a year, the details all came together and the end results was amazing.
The day started at Sarahs parents place, right next to the barn. Special Occasion Hair Design did an amazing job making each of the woman look fabulous. The dogs even joined in on the fun.
That dress though.
Sarah and Wade’s first look was so adorable it almost hurts. Their love for each other is infectious!
The flower girls during the ceremony almost stole the show, but Sarah and her dad and then of course the Sarah and Wade really made the whole ceremony so special.
The barn set up was gorgeous. A grand entrance, with family style seating within and a dance floor with a covered tent just outside the barn. Perfect place for a party!
Sarah’s dad actually made the escort card holders.
Every details was thought out, even keeping the kids occupied with these adorable kids activity packs.
This wedding started and ended at Oak Hill in Rochester NY and was gorgeous from start to finish. From the big to little details, it was all there. Add in that it was the first wedding of the season for us… perfection.
Lets start with the gorgeous and move from there…. The veil and dress gaaaahhhhh.
You can see the full effect here when she was going to do a first look with her father. Huge props to Natalie for this shot. It is one of my favorites.
Ahhh the anticipation… I love a first look!
The wedding ceremony was held at Linehan Chapel, beautiful inside and out!
The details for this wedding were to die for… The head table had napkins that were embroadiered with their initials. Such a great idea, as they can take them home and use again for all the future family dinner parties.
Champagne makes people happy, champagne bars… even happier.
Doesn’t get much more regal and romatic as this!
Desert by the amazing, five of each please. The Groom went to Villinova, so Scratch came up with this dessert display as the grooms cake.
Orient Express kept everyone moving all night long, including the bride and groom who pretty much didn’t leave the dance floor all night.
Late night snacks finished the night off.
Seriously there was not a detail that wasn’t addressed. Such a fun day, great weather, great company and above all an amazing couple.
I know Eileen because her big sister is my best friend. So I can honestly say I got to see this engagement from the start to the finish as I was at her sisters house the night Eileen got engaged to Nate and was able to see the ring on the first day they were engaged.
Eileen and Nate are probably one of the most relaxed couples I have ever had the pleasure to work with. They honestly just wanted to have a big party, and them getting married was a great excuse and wow what a party it was.
The timeline for this wedding was so relaxed! We started the day with the girls getting ready and Eileen’s parents house.
We moved on to Plantation Party House for a gorgeous ceremony. It was blazing hot as we thought it would be so we had adorable fans for programs.
How much these two love each other and have such a unique relationship is so apparent and amazing to witness.
Of course there was the party afterward, in which no one was sitting and everyone was dancing. Seriously how fun are these guys!
That little guy in the corner I even got to drive around for the 30 minutes to put him to sleep so his mama (my best friend) could keep dancing. Your welcome Erin 🙂 Thank you thank you Eileen and Nate for allowing me to be a part of your day. I had a blast!
When I moved back to New York, one of the first things I did was look for something to do. I was under the false impression that I would be bored compared to living in DC. This of course could not be farther from the truth, Rochester almost has too much to do, to the point where I feel like I miss put on things if I take a weekend off.
Anyhow, naturally when I found out that Rochester has its own fashion week I bought tickets to three of the shows. Each of the shows were amazing, distinctive and each could have stood on its own. The people that were involved were all from Rochester and the show is to benefit The Center For Youth. I knew that I wanted to be part of such an amazing event.
So fast forward to now, Fashion Week is slated for October 13th to the 18th, and I can NOT wait to be a part of the action. So mark your calendars people it is going to be awesome. More on that later…
This event was our summer kick off, I was involved in the social media coordination. Follow Fashion Week of Rochester on Facebook, @rochesterfasionweek on Instagram and @ROC_fashionweek on Twitter to be up to date on all the behind the scenes action, models, fashion, stylists, boutiques and fashion designers.
Midtown Athletic Club was nice enough to be our hosts, and the weather could not have been better for a pool side party! The event featured Emmy Award winning stylist David Zyla the author of “How to Win at Shopping” as a guest speaker. I of course was live tweeting, facebooking and instagraming the entire time (it was exhausting… jk jk jk). I finished off the last designer/boutique with 4% battery left, obviously need to get one of those mobile battery chargers.
Can’t wait for the next event, and don’t forget to follow us, I will make it worth your while!
