Ontario Country Club Wedding - Alexandra & Tim

Can I just say how much I like Alexandra and Tim? From the first time I sat down with them, I loved their genuineness and sincere care for each other. I can feel that they have each other’s best in mind, and on top of that they’re just neat people - Alexandra has been a competitive bodybuilder! Not to mention that she’s actually related to a French President - how cool is that!? I was so happy they wanted me to be part of their wedding day!

Their wedding day threatened a little rain, but I’m so glad they stuck to their outdoor plans. They got ready at their family’s homes, and their ceremony and reception were at the Ontario Country Club.

There were so many meaningful moments during the day, especially involving their families. Alexandra’s first look with her dad was priceless and moving, as was her coming down the aisle and seeing Tim for the first time.

At the reception, Alex’s father shared touching thoughts on what it’s like to be a dad and watch your little girl grow up and start making decisions for herself. I couldn’t help but think of my own son, and hope he will make similarly good decisions. It was awesome to hear the respect and admiration Alex’s father has for Tim, and how proud of both of them he is.

Alex and Tim, I’m so glad to got to capture these memories for you, and I thrilled you’ll get to enjoy these moments for the rest of your life together!

Sodus Bay Heights Golf Club Wedding - Sodus Bay, NY - Becky & John

I have a problem when I try to write about Becky and John: there are too many nice words to describe them! It just sounds over-the-top after a while! :-) They're kind, thoughtful, generous, loving, sincere, faithful, steady - and I'm just getting started! They aren't weighed down by trivial things, they value their family, and cherish each other. They love God and care about their marriage being built on a solid foundation. I just really like these two! :-)

John and Becky both grew up on Sodus Bay in Wayne County, NY, so it was fitting that their wedding was at Sodus Bay Heights Golf Club, which has a commanding view of the bay. Being on the water is second nature to Becky and John, and it was perfect that John and his guys took a boat from their getting ready cabin to the golf course!

The whole wedding party was wonderful to work with, especially considering the weather - it was terribly hot that day! They actually decided to move their outdoor ceremony inside so their guests wouldn't swelter in the heat. I know this was a good decision to make, but it was tough to forgo that beautiful view over the bay.

Despite the heat, the whole day happened beautifully. There were personal touches sprinkled throughout: the "Skinner" anchor carried by a ringbearer, outdoor-inspired cake by Get Caked Bakery, and lots of time for pictures with family - John's grandpa is 100 years old!

Becky and John, thank you so much for including me in your wedding day. You're generous with your love for each other and those around you, and it was an honor to work with you!
