“The winds were warm about us, the whole earth seemed the wealthier for our love.”

August 22, 2009

Andi and Ty met in college, Johns Hopkins to be exact, on the Taekwondo team. He a senior, she a freshman. Second semester they began dating, and three years later Ty brought Andi to lunch on his birthday to propose. Their love is storybook, and they have beautiful personalities to match each others radiance.

I had the honor to shoot their wedding in Rochester, NY a couple of weeks ago.

The night before the wedding, we were welcomed into Ty’s family home for the rehearsal dinner ( complemented by the famously amazing Dinosaur Barbeque ). We were back there again in-between the ceremony at the Nativity Church in Brockport and the reception at the Shanghai Chinese Restaurant in Rochester for some gorgeous photos with the family and bridal party. The day turned out to be sunny and warm, unlike most of the rainy summer this year, and I think everyone felt truly blessed to be in the presence of such pure love.

I’m not sure why I love the following photograph but it makes me smile 🙂

Andi’s flowers were done by Lisa Meyer who designs custom floral arrangements. They were elegant and perfect for Andi! The bear was a present from Ty 🙂

Addicted to the blackberry.. had to put this one in for Andi 🙂

Ty was a male model in another life 🙂

Andi you are just too fabulous for me 😀

Everything about the reception was individualized perfectly for Andi and Ty. The scripted name cards, the 9-course traditional Chinese buffet dinner, the karaoke brought by Starlite Productions, and of course the 3-tiered wedding cake from Gruttadauria Bakery!

Listening to Andi’s dad’s toast…

For cake cutting, the couple brought their own special sword to do the honors. It was pretty terrific 🙂

I love love love love beautiful rings and handmade figurines!

There were no formal dances after dinner, but I caught this one of the couple…
