They had come back home. Life took Alison and Pat throughout New York and in to Brooklyn, but their roots were deep in Rochester. It was where they went to high school, where they first met, and today it was where they would marry. It took a while to get here – not only because they frequently drove through the New York City traffic, but because they took their time. They had grown so close they were already an essential part of each others lives, and now it was time to move forward and take another step together.
Alison sat in the sun room of her parents house while hairspray plumed like a cloud and mimosas were stylishly sipped. She reminisced with her bridesmaids about high school days when they would all gather in that very same room. Back then life was wide open and unexplored, but as they all grew up and found their way through school, relationships, and jobs they never lost touch. Some of them lived states away yet they knew how to come together and celebrate.
While the weather was being indecisive, Alison and Pat were not. Family and friends gathered at Irondequoit Country Club for a party they would remember. The bridesmaids and groomsmen were dressed in elegant black and white which made the vibrant bursts of color in their flowers stunning. There was not a detail unconsidered, and many talented people came together to make this wedding the gorgeous day that it was. It’s time to relive and remember it, and congratulate once again Alison + Pat!
Alison and Pat chose to do a first look – or “first peep” as they liked to call it. Not only did it allow them to have a smoother schedule to the day, it gave them a few moments alone which is rare on a wedding day.
the newlyweds! The ceremony ended and the party began after cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The stage was set and with the inside of the club decorated beautifully, Alison and Pat entered and the dancing began!
one of my favorites! A kiss on the middle of the dance floor well captured. Cupcakes and sweets were set out for dessert and made by Oh, Sugar run by Alison’s cousin Jenette Delly. I will vouch for the fact that they are delicious!
