Real Wedding: Tami & Francis

golf course wedding couple bataviaTami and Francis were a dream. There was a definite chill in the air from their late-November wedding day, but you would never be able to tell from their photos. Everything about them was so warm, inviting, and magical. 
Tami and Francis were not only lucky enough to get married on a perfect, Fall day, but they were also lucky enough to have Jay Terkel Photography capture their wedding.

Warm, jewel tones like marsala are so well-fitted to our banquet room. This wedding truly encapsulated understated-elegance.

Again, understated elegance came into play with Tami & Francis' cake - choosing a simple but elegant two-tiered cake with floral touches.

We absolutely loved seeing the newlyweds in their otherwise empty wedding reception room. It truly creates a dramatic, beautiful look for the room as a whole.

Did you love everything you saw here (it's pretty much impossible not to). We're going to sweeten the deal:

Real Weddings: Justine & Stephen

 batavia winter wedding
When the "feels-like" temperature outside is currently 6 degrees, it's only fitting to feature a winter wedding. Warm yourselves up with these cozy, wintery, and glamorous details from Justine & Stephen's January wedding. 

Justine and Stephen were residing in Alaska when they got engaged, but being from Perry originally brought them back to their western New York roots for their wedding. From Perry to Alaska, the colder climates were old news to them, but also the perfect setting for their big day. 

The detailing from this wedding is flawless.

We're obsessed with these wintery, woodsy bouquets. From pine cones, to spruce branches, to dusty miller, to the blue & ivory coloring, these flowers are a winter dream.

We're never certain if the golf course will be off-limits during a winter wedding, but Justine & Stephen definitely lucked out. Green fairways in January - almost too good to be true!

Like we said, the detailing from this wedding is incredible. Check out all these perfectly chic winter wedding touches: a hot chocolate bar, homemade ice wine from the parents of the bride for favors, rock candy, wood EVERYWHERE.

Becca Sutherland Photography  is simply a master in the art of capturing stunning photos. Self-described from her Instagram profile as a "Buffalo wedding, lifestyle, and destination photographer that loves cups of tea, foggy days, and my family", she seems like the perfect choice for Justine and Stephen. Cups of tea and foggy days definitely remind us of a cold, winter day, like the day they chose for their wedding. Becca's stylizing of some of the photos to give them a bleached feel really encapsulates the chic, grayish feel of this wedding even more.
