We were truly excited once again to be back at Becker Farms & Vizcarra Vineyards for the June wedding of Zachary and Marie. Based on the energy and enthusiasm they had for the engagement session alone, we just knew that their vineyard wedding would be perfectly planned. So how excited we were to see it all come together among the rustic farm details and scenic vineyards that dot the landscape of this picture-perfect venue!
We met Marie and Zac at the Best Western Inn Lockport, as they prepared for the day with a little help from their family and friends. Zac must have had love on his mind!
Marie had a lovely tea-length dress and the prettiest purple shoes! Among her personal effects she also had a book with a sonnet enclosed, written and presented earlier that day by her groom-to-be. It was such a touching memento! Zac - you get POINTS! :)
After every hook and eye and button was fastened, Marie showed off some juggling moves and then settled into a few stunning bridal portraits. We love it!
Over at Becker Farms, the final touches were being put in place for the big day. Since the bride and groom were bringing together their families from Western New York and New England, they had Buffalo-style hot sauce and blueberry jam as favors to properly introduce them to each other. They even brought Muppets to the party, just as they did to their engagement session. How fun is that?
Zac had waited patiently to see Marie for the first time on their wedding day, and was not disappointed. The two were beaming with love as they saw each other. They made it so easy for us to capture love at its truest.
During the ceremony, in addition to some of the most touching personal vows you will ever hear, Marie's brother performed a poem in American Sign Language that was truly beautiful to see!
We may have failed to mention how perfect the weather was on this wedding day. So we were so happy that Marie and Zac took us up on the chance to capture a few timeless photographs in the most beautiful golden light, just before sunset. Simply...beautiful!
Back to the party we went - where the dance floor was jumping all night, as everyone young and old took some time to celebrate.
Marie & Zac - we are so happy we had the opportunity to photograph your most special wedding day! You and your families made it so easy for us to capture your memories! We hope you enjoy them for years to come! :)
