Jeramie & Becky’s wedding was highly anticipated and so beautiful. I really enjoyed getting to know these two, and they are such a happy and unique couple with a deep love for each other and their families. They met in college at Pitt, and had a unique proposal where Jeramie actually photoshopped a card to fit into a Dominion Deck (an awesome, strategic card game that my husband and I and our friends have also been known to play!), and proposed to her in that creative way! They are both computer smarties and fun, relaxed people who just wanted to have a fantastic day! The weather was beautiful and the day just took off. Enjoy these pictures!!

This wedding was SO beautiful. Brogan and Tim have such a sweet and simple love, celebrating their wedding at Bemus Point on Chautauqua Lake – one of their favorite places. They love the water and boats so much that their reception was held at the Lawson Center, an awesome boat museum! There ceremony was held on the lawn of the Hotel Lenhart. After a brief rainstorm right as the processional began… Ah!… a calm and beautiful Brogan walked down the aisle to meet her groom. The night was amazing with this awesome team of vendors:

Photographing Sarah & Tim’s wedding was such an honor. I felt like I was photographing and attending the wedding of great friends… I had tears falling while Sarah walked down the aisle and danced with her father! Their wedding was full of vintage style, beautiful romantic and soft colors of corals, peach, pink, etc. Sarah’s glamorous dress and hairstyle was straight out of old hollywood! Here are some of my favorite images. For more information on weddings for 2014, please shoot me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 814-450-9650!
Bryce & Katie’s elegant, nautical themed wedding was a day full of joy & love. The ceremony was held at Bemus Point United Methodist Church, and we went for photographs in-between at Bemus Point on the floating dock & in front of Hotel Lenhart. The reception was held at the large & beautiful Chautauqua Suites. Thanks to Kim Sprickman for second shooting with me!

My gorgeous bride Carrie informed me that she was going to submit some of her wedding images to Style Me Pretty – and would I mind? I was like… would I mind? – please! This is so exciting – do it do it!! I am so thrilled that they were chosen for the local New York section of the website. It was a gorgeous wedding with details that Carrie really thought through and made her own. Her dress was stunning and vintage, and carried through the whole rustic, beautiful wedding at the Red House in Cassadaga, NY. It was also an honor because Carrie is a wedding photographer herself, so that she chose me out of many others really was exciting. My second shooter was Jessica Lewis from Kraft & Jute, and I couldn’t have done it without her! Here’s a screenshot from the blog and the link:

Fernando and Kim are a spectacular couple I had the pleasure of photographing in June. They had been together for four years at the time of their engagement and met through friends in the medical field. They got engaged under the stars at Kim’s parents cabin with the telescope looking at the moon! This was also part of the inspiration for the blue and silver theme they used. Their wedding was elegant, themed with silver and blue and held at Sacred Heart Church in Erie, PA with a reception at the Sheraton Bayfront Hotel. Here are some more fun details from Kim’s words about her wedding, and following some of my favorite images! I also wanted to note that I photographed this wedding with the amazing Jessica Lewis and some of my favorites are images she took!
Cake: “It takes the Cake, ” by Wendy Adams. Fernando and I helped to design the look of the cake. It was classic white with raspberry filling. It was as beautiful as it was delicious.
Flowers: Joel’s Flower Shoppe. Joel went above and beyond to make our wedding beautiful. We used white roses, white and blue hydrangeas, light blue dalphium, stephanotis and dusty miller to add the touch of silver to accent the room. My bouquet was amazing, cascade style stephanotis with crystal centers, white peonies and ivory roses!
Band/DJ: DJ Tony Berarducci was charming and a perfect fit for our reception. The lighting he set up complemented the room perfectly, and he was a true class act. He kept the guests entertained and dancing all night. Our live band was a big hit! The Rick Holland Band traveled from Rochester, NY to really make our night special. Their lead singer, Lindsey Holland, had an amazing voice, and the 6 piece jazz swing band pleased all the guests at any age with their classic upbeat romantic Frank Sinatra style.
First Dance Song: Dave Matthews Band, ” You and Me”
Chairs/Decorations: We splurged for the silver Chiavari chairs, and we were so glad we did. The chairs were brand new when they arrived, and they made the ball room at the Sheraton really elegant!! The silver and the blue colors came together with the refection of the water for a truly amazing waterfront decor for our reception.
Where did you get the inspiration for your elegant wedding? Did you design your own centerpieces/or other elements? My inspiration for the wedding came from a elegant romance style. We were inspired by Lake Erie, and the beauty of the water down at the Sheraton Erie Bayfront in the spring. Our colors where a perfect complement to the blue and silver of the water in the spring time. My mother was a big help, she has been a events coordinator for a long time, and she knew how to make a room look beautiful!!
What is your favorite memory from the day? There were so many…but probably dancing my first dance with my husband!
If you could change one thing from the day, would you? Just would have taken more time to eat more of the wedding cake!
Where did you go on your honeymoon? St. Lucia, we stayed at an amazing private resort with our very own villa and infinity pool for 7 glorious nights!!!
Any other details you want to share? My dress was also my inspiration for the wedding, I loved the classic romantic look of my Allure Couture dress! A sweet lady Nancy Fioretti did my make-up, she was a delight to work with, and I would recommend her to all the girls in Erie. Also, I had my hair done by Amanda at Panache, who truly made me feel like a princess. Also wanted to mention that my best friend travelled from California on her sons birthday to be my maid of honor!
Rachel Lusky photography provided us with the most wonderful wedding memories we could have asked for. Our whole experience with Rachel was excellent. She was flexible with our busy schedule, and worked with us from the engagement photo shoot, all the way to our final touches on our wedding album. She is a true professional, and her pictures are artistic, yet captured our emotions to truly bring our special day back to life every time we look at them. I highly recommend Rachel Lusky photography to anyone who wants to cherish their memories on photo. We will surely have her capture our special moments again in the future! Thanks again for making our memories so wonderful with our pictures and our amazing album!

Hey everyone!! This wedding is just… beyond words. I’ve spent hours sorting through them to find the perfect ones to post… just too many that I loved, and I couldn’t narrow them down. The colors were gorgeous, the theme, vintage grey and yellow. Jaclyn and Evan are two of the happiest people I’ve met, sweet, thoughtful and so friendly. Jaclyn knew what she wanted and she made my job easy – to capture all the beauty of the gorgeous wedding she planned! Here’s a few details from her about her wedding day.
Ceremony Location: St. Matthias, Clymer, NY
Reception Location: Peek N’ Peak Lodge
Cake: Jennifer Beal (employee at PKNPK)
Flowers: Miss Millies Proper Petals
Band: John Parker Band
First Dance Song: I Can’t Wait by Runner Runner
Did you make all your centerpieces? I Put together everything with the help of my mom and bridesmaids. It took a year to collect everything!
Where did you get the inspiration for your theme/colors/details? I knew I wanted yellow since it went so nicely with the church and the reception venue and my sister suggested Grey to go with it. The theme just represented Evan and I very well—we both like simple things and we are very outdoorsy/rustic people.
What was your favorite memory from the day? My favorite memory of the day was riding in the carriage after the church. It gave Evan and I some alone time to just take it all in and be together.
If you could change one thing from the day, would you? I wish I would have been able to spend more time with all of our guests but other than that, there is nothing that I would have changed about our special day.
Where did you go on your honeymoon? We went to the Dominican Republic right the Monday after the wedding.
What is awesome about Rachel Lusky? Of course I will answer this! By the looks of the “sneak peek” of the pictures, you caught all of our special moments throughout the day. You were able to accommodate all my requests and I really appreciate that!
