Rochester Wedding Photographer-
Catherine and Brian's wedding was a long time coming, it was so exciting to finally have the day upon us! Catherine told me that they wanted to make sure I was available before they actually booked their venue- that is such an unbelievable compliment! I love working with people who are really excited about photography, it just makes it so fun! We had an extremely cold engagement session in early 2014 but it was a lot of fun- I almost fell into a giant pile of cacti, we got to become best friends with some button quail (mostly we just stood near them) and we saw the most terrifying clown statue just watching us from an upper level window. What would the wedding have in store for us after all that?!
Well, first of all... total, stunning deco loveliness. I loved Catherine's red lip!
Look how great these two look together.
And the gorgeous view at Esperanza Mansion doesn't hurt either.
We did have one minor calamity- I accidentally posed Catherine directly on top of a very active, hidden ant hill. Fortunately, she laughed it off pretty quickly once the ants were shooed away. Love their contagious laughter!
We need to discuss these details. Ok, first of all, Catherine made all the bouquets and boutonnieres by hand... those are all tiny beads. Each petal of each flower. The delicate baby's-breath-like wires with more beads on them. I cannot imagine. I believe it took her about one day per flower! They were so gorgeous and intricate! The wedding had an overall Art Deco theme, look at that stunning cake from Premier Pastry! I can't stop looking at it. It is so fabulous! Catherine also made the wedding favors very personalized- they're scientists so the favor boxes were all designed to look like the periodic table! Loved it. They were also filled with gummy bears, which are a favorite of theirs! Catherine's vision came alive beautifully in Esperanza's ballroom!
Ah the cake cutting was a bit of a scene... Catherine is cracking up because Brian's initial cake cutting was about 3 nanometers wide. He clearly thinks that is a reasonable serving of cake though. I'm with Catherine on this one!
Originally, best man Russel was in the lead for Wedding MVP with this sweet, sweet leg axe.
Everyone had a great night!
Thank you so much for inviting me to photograph your day, Catherine and Brian... it was an honor!
