Beautiful spring day, historic mansion, wonderful couple with family and friends, what more could you ask for on a wedding day! Ben & Erica's day began with preparations in the beautiful Wadsworth Homestead in Geneseo, NY. What a gorgeous backdrop, it seemed to fit so perfectly for them, they are a quiet couple but with a great sense of style, it was as if they were truly meant for this moment in this location. The spacious upstairs accommodations made it possible for both bride and groom to get ready without the fear of seeing each other before their "first look" prior to the ceremony. We set Ben & Erica's first look up on the north side porch area where they could have a private time and see how glorious each other looked. Following the first look, we move around the grounds for some couple's images and then brought in the wedding party for some photos, we were even able to get some family photos prior to the ceremony which enabled the couple to attend their cocktail time with guest. The ceremony was brief but magnificent in every way, and took place on the west lawn with approximately 90 friends and family in attendance. For the cocktail hour, guest were able to mingle in the spacious downstairs of the mansion and were served drinks and appetizers by the awesome staff of the Caledonia Village Inn. Following cocktails guest settled into the party tent as Ben & Erica were announced and had their first dance as husband and wife. A delicious meal was prepared and served by the staff at the Caledonia Village Inn catering. The desert table was nothing short of spectacular with so many delicious offering prepared by The Cake Place in Avon NY. The party was rocking thanks to Encore Events featuring DJ Ray Tiano "Commissioner of Remixology", also have to send a big shout out to Envy Salon in Geneseo for the Hair & Makeup, flowers by Jody Rowcliff, rings from Heritage Jewelers, Brides dress from Heart to Heart Bridal in Webster NY, Bridesmaid dresses from Davids Bridal.

Suits were a gift from Ben to his groomsmen! How awesome is that! Ben purchased them from Bestfit Menswear in Marketplace Mall and they were tailored to perfection. Groom with his lovely sisters and Niece Ben lost his mother in 2005, very touching dance with his sisters and father joining Although the weather was perfect, we had clouds roll in for sunset but we did get some glorious blue hour evening images! Desert Table was spectacular! Can't wait till we get to photograph this couples wedding in November!
