Venue Highlights: Shadow Lake Weddings, Rochester NY

We’ve been having fun showing off our vineyard venues, so why not show off a local Rochester wedding venue? Our hope is that we can share a little insight to some of the venues we’ve had the pleasure of working at and give a helping hand to any newly engaged couples!

Shadow Lake has two great reception locations for your wedding day - and we’ve had the pleasure of working in both. The Garden Tent holds approximately 175 people and the newly renovated (and gorgeous) Clubhouse can accommodate up to 250 of your favorite people. Either option has a fantastic waterside view.

You can also have your wedding ceremony right on the grounds - whether on the water or facing the lush greens of the course. Either option creates a picturesque backdrop for your ceremony photographs. (Enter us!)

Beyond that, the staff goes above and beyond to create an amazing day for each and every couple. And the food is fantastic! The chef’s in the kitchen create delicious meals using mostly local and home made ingredients. Yes, please!

Highlighting the whole venue for us is the multitude of options for a variety of great photographs. There are floral scenes, the waterfront and perfect locations for brilliant sunsets.

So if you’re checking out wedding venues in Rochester NY, stop on in and visit Ryan and the team for a tour! We hope to see you there!

Shadow Lake Wedding Photography, Penfield NY: Christina and Adam

Photographing Adam and Christina’s Fairport wedding felt like coming home. In more ways that one. And not just because we were only ever 10 minutes from home at any given moment.

It felt like home because of the people - these two, and their families are practically family to us. Their wedding kicked off our season with not only the best weather imaginable for an early April day in Rochester, but also the best people and awesome vendors.

We felt peace throughout the house when we arrived, even the flower girls were calm and ready for the day ahead. Because we had planned everything together so thoroughly, all there was left to do was enjoy the day.

And they did. The ceremony at Church of the Assumption in Fairport was love filled and emotional. We met up with Larry (their goldendoodle) and a crowd favorite for his close up on the canal in Fairport. There was even enough time for a snack from McDonalds before heading over to Shadow Lake for their reception. (Which if you haven’t seen their renovations and are looking for a Rochester area wedding venue - stop in there for sure.)

It was the perfect wedding to begin another year as wedding photographers in Rochester NY. We had waited for this day with them for so long. To witness it and be part of it meant everything to us and left us feeling inspired for the season ahead.

Congratulations to you Christina and Adam - thank you for enriching our lives with who you are, individually and together.
