Jessica and Tommy – August 3, 2013

Jessica and Tommy were married on August 3, 2013 at The Sagamore Resort in Bolton Landing.  They had a beautiful summer day with warm weather and great lake breezes.  The couple lives in Florida but chose The Sagamore as a destination location for their big day.  They brought me on to provide day-of wedding coordination services so that everyone could relax and enjoy.
Jess is blessed with having a mom who who was very involved in the wedding planning process.  The two of them made beautiful choices on all of the small details, including the dresses, flowers, and linens.  With a palette of gray, ivory, blush, and soft pink they created a clean and modern look for the ceremony and reception.  This was a great choice of colors to complement the beautiful view of the water and the Adirondack Mountains.
Jess and Tommy put a lot of personal touches to their wedding to truly make the day special for them and for their guests.  Tommy’s father performed the ceremony, and Jessica’s father gave a touching welcome speech to start of the reception.  They ended the night with a sparkler send off that took guests from the wedding tent to a bonfire where they enjoyed smores and more celebrating.  And, as August 3rd is my birthday, the father of the bride grabbed the mic at the end of the night to wish me a happy birthday and thank me for my help that day.  That meant so much to me!
Joining me on this wedding was a great group of vendors.  Of course working with Dawn and Jerid at The Sagamore is always a pleasure, and Jerid really goes out of his way to make sure the guests and the vendors have everything they need.  The photographer was Lauren Ann Hughes and she graciously sent me these photos to share with all of you.  Jess and Tommy also had Paper Moon Productions shooting video, Salon Capri from Rochester did all of the girls’ hair, Changes Salon was on hand for makeup, and All Season Trio played live for the ceremony.  And last but certainly not least, are two of my favorite guys in the business – Patrick Bergeron of Metro Music kept everyone dancing up until the very last song, and David Michael Schmidt of Renaissance Floral Design created all of the beautiful floral and decorative items for the ceremony and reception.
Thank you to Jess, Tommy, and both of your families for including me in your big day!
