Nora and Aaron's Wedding in Geneseo, NY

Nora and Aaron were married in Nora’s hometown, Geneseo, New York, on a sparkling summer day. First, Nora got ready with the ladies and Aaron got ready with the men and boys at the Hampton Inn and Suites on Lakeville Road in Geneseo. After the dress and custom jewelry was donned, Nora and her maid of honor headed to her parents’ house on Second Street. Nora’s parents, Eileen and Tom, have a beautiful, quaint, artistic home, curated perfectly for the first look (and later, reception). While Nora waited in the living room occasionally peeking out from behind the curtains, Aaron placed himself on the lawn, facing away from the house. As Nora descended from the porch, and made her way across the lawn, you could see the phases of emotions crossing each of their faces. The first look was quiet and sweet, and the two seemed filled with confidence about the adventure that lay ahead. Sneaking away into different cars hiding from onlookers, Aaron and Nora made their way to the historic Riviera theater on Center Street in Geneseo, NY for their ceremony. The Riviera, an aging empty theater during Nora’s childhood, was recently renovated to be fully functional again. The interior is beautiful and made a romantic and fun setting for the wedding. As guests arrived, they were pointed to the concession stand, where everything was on the house- best day at the movies ever! After grabbing a snack, guests picked their seats on the first floor and balcony. Nora’s dad Tom took full advantage of the movie theater setting, starting off with a custom concert and movie compilation of wedding fails. Guests were laughing so hard they cried, as Nora and Aaron waited nervously in the entrance. Once it was truly showtime, Tom took his place center stage as the officiant, and Nora was escorted down by her mother Eileen. The ceremony was heartfelt and sweet, and afterward, Nora and Aaron held hands and cheered along with guests- big smiles all around. Next, we got a must-have shot of the wedding party at the recently restored bear fountain on Main Street, Geneseo. For formal photos we went to the Wadsworth Homestead at 4 South Street. A summer of rain has the Homestead grounds lush and rich, perfect for stunning wedding photos, so we had a blast exploring! After formals, it was time to party! The reception was held at Nora’s childhood home, where the backyard had been transformed into party town with a bar, lawn games, and a beautiful big tent! For the remainder of the night, Nora and Aaron, and their family and friends enjoyed dancing, delicious food, a bon fire, and desserts too good to resist (if you were there, you know what I mean ;). The whole day was filled with love and so much happiness, we had a great time capturing it! Congratulations Nora and Aaron, we are so happy for you and wish you the best of luck!!
