Gina & Tommy had a wonderfully fun and festive wedding celebration on a warm September day at the Memorial Art Gallery. The day started out calmly, building up to the ceremony with over 200 guests. So many great moments during the day- making my job as wedding photographer easy to document the emotions and events.
The large gathering enjoyed some great live music provided by Gina's father's band (The Coachmen), beautiful flowers from Kittelberger, and impeccable DJ work as always from Eric and Mike for Next Level Entertainment. These people know how to have fun-- the party even lasted past when the Museum closed!
Things started for the guy's at Masons on Alexander with drinks, darts and laughs.
Gina and Roz were getting their hair done at the salon, then met up with the other girls at the MAG.
The guys took the group shots very seriously ;)

Always a favorite moment of mine at weddings.

Some more serious portraits ;)
Gina is an art teacher in the Rochester City School district, so naturally, we went inside the art gallery to look at some paintings.
After the portraits and cocktail hour, the reception kicked off with their first dance, toasts, mother-son and father-daughter dances, and the live music from The Coachmen.
"You've got to hooold on to what you've got..."

Awesome party guys! Thanks for letting me document the day!
