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.
Let’s just start off with I love my job. Seriously there is nothing more satisfying than working with a couple for a year+, getting to be a part of their day, and have it go well. It is a trifecta that I will never get sick of.
We had a jammed packed day. My schedule at points was planned in 5 minutes increments, but at the end of the day it went off on time! (One person party over here).
Thank you thank you Shana and Max for letting me be a party of your special day!!!
So when of your best friends is getting married and you get to help plan it there is literally nothing more exciting…. Or terrifying lol.
Next best thing, the couple decides to have a destination wedding. I definitely jumped around my living room when they said they wanted to go some where tropical. Beach wedding?! Yes please.
Last but not least when I suggest a fire show (because seriously what could be more awesome) they were completely on board. Granted I knew that Brandy would be down with it because she is awesome and likes my ideas, and what guy doesn’t like fire?? So thanks Shou and Brandy for trusting me with this awesome experience, can’t wait for the next party! I am thinking five year anniversary party in Europe, I will start planning it now 🙂
