The Ballroom at Carey Lake - Rochester, NY Photographer: Becca & TJ

Becca and TJ were married on August 2nd, 2019 at the Ballroom at Carey Lake! These two actually met at Target during Becca's Senior year of High School! I would have absolutely insisted on an engagement session at Target (while trying not to get lost and buy more stuff I don't need), but this lovely couple lives in Florida! They found me while out of state and hired me without officially meeting me and I am SO glad they did! Venue: The Ballroom At Carey Lake (The staff was incredible!)

DJ: DJ Gemini Sound (he was absolutely AMAZING. He made it a PARTY!! Check him out!!)

Dessert: Savoia Pastry Shoppe

Florals: Sue Wagner

Make Up: Audrey Dunn (also maid of honor!)

Dress: David's Bridal

Suits: Men's Warehouse


Becca and TJ met and fell in love at a young age, but still knew their love was rock solid. After senior year, Becca moved to Florida to further her education and they would take turns flying to see each other. TJ eventually joined Becca in Florida and proposed in their home with a ring from his Uncle's jewelry shop.

They knew they were meant to be from the very start. Actually, at their very first date and their first kiss! They celebrated their love with private, sweet moments. Before the ceremony, they read each other's vows while just one hand hold away, but of course, no peeking! Their ceremony also celebrated family. Their uncle officiated their wedding, family members doing readings during their ceremony, and of course their adorable daughter, Claire who was a part of their sand ceremony.

Their wedding had a gorgeous combination of gold and peach colors that embraced the love of gardens and flowers. The Ballroom at Carey Lake had a perfect combination of beautiful scenery and romantic greenery while also being modern, yet classic all at the same time. It was a photographer's dream! Their reception was equally as beautiful! DJ Gemini Sound matched their theme with GORGEOUS up lighting that set the ambiance for the night. He also created a custom monogram for the couple that was absolutely stunning!

One of the things I like to offer, especially for my summer weddings, is an additional 15 minute couple's session during golden hour. I steal them away for those 15 minutes during the reception to capture more photos with the beautiful lighting of golden hour (one hour before sunset). I knew I had to steal Becca and TJ away with all of the beautiful scenery The Ballroom at Carey Lake offers (from a fountain, the lake, and their corridor lined with crystal chandeliers. SO GORGEOUS!).

DJ Gemini Sound made sure the reception was an absolute PARTY! While fun lawn games were being played outside, the up lighting and twinkle lights set the stage for a magical and fun evening inside the ballroom.

Becca and TJ returned to Florida after their wedding to celebrate the start of their new chapter! Congratulations!
