Rochester is home to so many beautiful locations to host a wedding. From grand formal to beach casual and everything in between. We have had the pleasure of working at several of them. For those of you still looking for venues, we thought this might be a helpful list of some of what is out there.
Where We Have Been:
Hyatt Regency, Rochester NY The Hyatt is beautiful because of it's modern feel. There are so many neat little locations, perfect for photography and the food is always outstanding.
Colgate Divinity School, Rochester NY Everything from the chapel to the ballroom gives this space a classic feel. It's proximity to Highland Park helps too!
Bristol Harbour, Canandaigua NY If you're looking towards Canandaigua Lake, Bristol Harbour has amazing views and a fun rustic decor.
Harro East, Downtown Rochester NY Harro East has a great set up for large weddings, and a stage for live entertainment, if that be your heart's desires!
Genesee Valley Club, Rochester NY Custom designed weddings from start to finish! It's another one of those historical, and classic beautiful spaces that just takes your breath away.
Casa Larga Vineyards, Fairport NY It's the perfect vineyard setting, right here in our own backyard. It's got vineyards, it's got wine, it's got a grand ballroom. Love it.
Barn Weddings, Rochester NY We've had the opportunity to work at two different barn locations recently. One was Kindred Ground Farm, and the other was the Wingate Barn. The rustic theme lovers will feel right at home at either of these two locations.
Here's some of the other venues we've been too: Radisson Riverside Hotel, Rochester Plaza Hotel, Plantation Party House, Eagle Vale, Deerfield Country Club, Woodcliff Hotel, Burgandy Basin Inn, Cobblestone Creek Country Club, Steamboat Landing, Lakeshore Country Club, Tapas 177, Belhurst Castle, The Rabbit Room, Rochester Riverside Convention Center, Ravenwood Golf Club
This year's weddings are taking us to some new places like Midvale Country Club and the Avon Century Barn. We always love new locations, because it gets our creative juices flowing, allowing us to see things in a new way for you.
My suggestion to you is - think about your style, and what you want your day to look like. Then, come talk to us! We can give you ideas and a direction that will get you on the right path for you. No, we're not wedding planners - but we have enough experience in wedding industry that we can maybe help guide you towards your dream day.
And while this short list focuses solely on Rochester, we do enjoy working all over. Here are some other places we have had the pleasure of working:
Syracuse and Buffalo - These two destinations are not too far for us to photograph a wedding day! Melbourne, Florida - What a treat to be a part of some warm sunshiney wedding fun. Virginia Wine Country - A destination worth visiting, especially for a wedding! Our trip there was certainly memorable!
On that note, we love to travel and are looking forward to new experiences in new locations. We hope to someday visit: The Carribbean, Italy, Hawaii, France..anywhere really! We have our passports ready, and are willing to travel with you and your bridal party! There are so many benefits to taking us along for your destination wedding. For example, wouldn't be nice to know your photographers in advance of the wedding day? Also, not only would you have wedding coverage, you'd have rehearsal coverage, and even some vacation photographs too! What's not to love about that idea?
Having a destination wedding or looking for the perfect venue? We might be able to help, so say hello and let's start a conversation!
