Like most wedding days, they are hectic filled with people running about finishing last touches. Suzanne and her friends rented out an adorable, charming house in Rochester for her to get ready in. Her friends were down to earth, happy to help and make sure smiles were abundant in the room. We soon headed over to Highland Park for our long awaited first look where Matt paced in anticipation of seeing his bride and by the look on his face, it was more than he could have imagined. Their ceremony took place in downtown Rochester at the Arbor Loft. Industrial, tall ceilings and the most delicatly, beautifully hung floral arbor for their ceremony was the attention grabber. While it was short, their ceremony was filled with lovely poems and a surprise guest that couldn’t help but want to be the star of the show. From then on, it was party time and soon everyone was on the dance floor with a donut in one hand and a drink in another. Thank you again so much to Matt & Suz for trusting me on their big day!
Richelle and I are both from a small town nestled into the hills of Central NY called Frankfort. We've essentially known each other our entire lives. Justin is the cousin of one of my best friends from here in Buffalo, so when I say world's colliding happens often; I'm really not kidding!
I couldn't have created a more perfect couple. Richelle and Justin offer a ton to learn about being in love and maintaining a healthy relationship. They support one another in their endeavors, they always include each other and most importantly, they make sure to laugh together. I can truly tell how much love there is between them when they look at one another and it is magical. Their wedding was one of a kind due to their love of Halloween. There was skeletons, vampire teeth, even Jason made an appearance! So many surprises happened during this reception. Richelle & Justin choreographed an 8 minute long dance that was dramatic and fun. Richelle herself surprised Justin with a song she wrote herself and then performed live in front of all their family and friends. They really sent me out with a bang for the end of my 2017 season. I can't thank you both enough for having me on your special day. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Acker!
