Our final wedding of September 2010 had us back at one of our favorite places to shoot in all of Western New York! Breanne and Shawn chose the always amazing, stunningly gorgeous, Becker Farms and Vizcarra Vineyards to be the backdrop for their fabulous wedding day. We were so psyched to spend the day with such an awesome couple, at such an awesome place. :)
Breanne and Shawn opted to do their “formal” session before the ceremony started, which is a really great thing to do whenever possible. (If you don’t mind seeing each other before the ceremony, it makes a ton of sense to do all of these shots – or as many as you can – ahead of time.) We met up with the bride and groom and their wedding party at the crumbly ruins of an old mill, just down the street from Becker Farms. It’s such a cool building; I absolutely love it. I tried to do some research to find out its history and such, but there isn’t much out there. All I could gather was that that area is (was) known as “the mill district,” due to the fact that there used to be five mills around there. This particular mill was destroyed in a fire in 1880, but the stone skeleton still remains.
Seriously, though? How awesome is this building?
…aaaaand back to the building. :)
After taking a whole bunch of sweet “mill” shots, we scooted back up the road to the amazing Becker Farms/Vizcarra Vineyards to play around in the grapes. LOVE these next two!
I love the simplicity of these flowers; so elegant. :)
It’s also pretty cool that they totally match the orange truck.
After we wrapped up the wedding party, and bride/groom session, it was time for the ceremony to start! This is Ben’s perspective of Breanne and her Dad’s walk down the aisle… …and this is my perspective. I love both! :)
It was an absolutely beautiful ceremony!
This is definitely one of my favorite captures of the day – right after the ceremony. :)
INTRO-ductions!! This is Breanne and Shawn’s adorable son, Aiden, whom you may remember from their engagement session earlier this summer…SOOOOOO cute!
Ok, I know this is a lot of cake cutting pictures, but I love all three of these and couldn’t choose.
ME WANT CAKE!!!!
MMMMMMM, CAKE!! Kids are hilarious. :)
A little first dance action…
…and then, the party was rockin’!!
As always, we managed to grab this lovely couple for some night shots, and we headed straight for the Becker Farms apple orchards (which we are totally in love with)!
We’ll leave you with this STUNNING portrait, which will most definitely join the ranks of our all-time favorites. :)
Breanne and Shawn – Thanks so much for choosing us to be your wedding photographers! We were thrilled to be a part of your special day! You are a wonderful couple, and with Aiden, you make an adorable little family. We wish you both nothing but the best! CONGRATS!!
