Chris & Gabrielle | George Eastman House Wedding

Congratulations to Gabrielle and Chris who married this past weekend at The George Eastman House, with a reception following at La Luna, Rochester NY.  What a crazy, high-paced day this was for Leah and I with a truly amazing Couple!  We arrived in Rochester in the early morning for the getting readies.  I left Gabrielle in Leah’s capable hands at the hotel, while I drove the short distance to meet Chris and the guys at the George Eastman House.  I came back just as the girls were finishing the last touches, and we got Gabrielle into her dress. 

Back at Eastman House, guests were arriving, the string quartet was playing, and the West Garden looked beautiful.  One unusual touch to the proceedings was the mixing of concrete.  Chris’ family is in the business, and so they figured it was a fitting symbol of the bond they were entering into on this special day.  After a lovely Ceremony, I took Gabrielle, Chris and the Wedding Party for photos around the house and thru the various gardens. This was my first time shooting at this location, and I can’t wait to return.  There are so many photographic possibilities, I wish it wasn’t such a long drive from Buffalo, NY, because I would be here every week! 

Next, we all made our way by trolley to La Luna.  This is an amazing restaurant/venue located in the High Falls district of Rochester. I was able to utilize not only the historic areas within the venue itself, but right around the corner is the famous Pont De Rennes walking bridge, from which we could see the falls themselves. 

Dinner and dancing ensued, and as the sun finally set, it was time for sparklers.  After, Leah and I said our goodbyes and started the long drive home.  Thank you again to Gabrielle and Chris for inviting us to spend this memorable day with you.  We wish you all the best for the future!
