Rochester Winter Wedding with Jessica & Trevor


fun Bridal Party photos

With planning a winter wedding in Rochester, we were actually hoping for some snow on the ground. Alas, it was 45 degrees and super windy for this Rochester winter wedding! You just can’t plan for specific weather on a wedding day, can you? It sure did make it easier for travel, that’s for sure, and they had full turnout with all of their wedding guests. It was too windy for any photos outside though, and that was very disappointing. Woodcliff Hotel isn’t the ideal venue for large bridal party portraits, however I put on my Fearless Photographer hat and got to work creating cool stuff in this Rochester hotel.

Jessica and Trevor had a beautiful, black tie wedding at the Woodcliff Hotel and everything went off like clockwork. It was a romantic and also a fun affair. My cheeks hurt by the end of the night from smiling.


This sure was a vibrant wedding. Both families and the bridal party kept me on my toes and laughing all day long. Gallery Salon and Spa did a beautiful job getting all the ladies fancy and they all looked perfect all day… from the necklaces to the eye lash extensions….

Lucky for me, all of the groomsmen and families were on time and prompt for all of the expected photos. The wedding ceremony was short and sweet and then it was pretty much party time the rest of the night! It was an interesting wedding for me because there were multiple Jessicas, Jareds, Julies, Meghans…. So, even though there were a lot of people, the names were pretty easy. Haha.

Steve Turner kept the dance floor hopping all night long and the kids in attendance were all over the chocolate fountain and photo booth! I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my 2013 wedding season and spent the entire last hour just laughing! So. Much. Fun.

Congratulations Jessica & Trevor! I’m so thankful to have been included in this wonderful day and thankful that Ashley connected us. You two are adorable and clearly so in love. It was my pleasure to be your documentarian and meet your families!
