Classic Navy Blue Wedding at The Lake House on Canandaigua | Alexa + Matthew

Alexa and Matt’s classic wedding day began at the stunning Lake House on Canandaigua Lake. This new Rochester NY wedding venue was the perfect backdrop for their getting-ready images. All the white decor, it was a dream for our style of photography!! It also was the perfect place for them to end their gorgeous wedding day, with a wedding reception beside the lake. From beginning to end, this wedding day was classic and stunning in every way.

One of my favorite moments from the morning was Alexa’s first look with her father.  Normally I have brides tell their father to turn around as I capture their reaction.  Alexa said she had the perfect little phrase that was meaningful between her and her father.

Who loves you?  You do.

How much?  A whole bunch. Don’t ever forget it!

This sweet exchange was repeated later that day during her father’s speech at the reception.   There were so many tender moments shared between these two.  One of my absolute favorite images from the day was her father wiping away tears as he walked Alexa down the aisle.

After their beautiful ceremony at St. Mary’s Church in Canandaigua, we headed to Kershaw Park for some portrait time and then to their amazing cocktail hour at the Lake House. Alexa mentioned to us how excited she was for the raw bar! A whole table filled with seafood!! It was such a crowd pleaser!  Alexa and Matt’s family and friends danced the night away as the sun set over Canandaigua Lake.  Fun fact: This was the same lake where Matthew and I had our wedding reception 6 years ago!

Alexa and Matt, we hope you are enjoying your Jamaican honeymoon.  It was an absolute honor to spend the day with you, as you became husband and wife.  Your friends and family were amazing and we loved every minute of your wedding day! Get ready to relive it through images!
