Reconnecting with old friends is always fun, so when Jon and Jana contacted me to discuss their wedding at the Wadsworth Homestead, I was overjoyed! He was part of the skateboarding crew I grew up with, and I knew that being a part of his wedding would be less like work and more like a reunion with some familiar faces. Plus, Jana is such a sweetheart. It was easy working with her and her bridesmaids, but don’t be fooled, she also knows how to party!
We started the day with Jana upstairs in a gorgeous suite inside the bed and breakfast. The Wadsworth Homestead is a well preserved Bed and Breakfast in Geneseo, NY. Each room has an elegance that complimented the bridal party’s beauty in their stunning dresses. After the girls were done with hair and makeup and Jana was in her dress, we headed outside behind the house for her first look with Jon, as her bridesmaids and flower girls looked on. You may have noticed a surprise guest, Jon and Jana’s dog Dixie made some appearances in the formal pictures too!
As the clouds rolled through the Geneseo countryside, guests watched the rain safely under the Wadsworth porch. The tall white columns of the porch protected everyone from the storm and gave us a nice backdrop for the intimate ceremony.
Jon & Jana had some interesting details for the reception. They had wine barrels for guests to sign and lottery ticket place settings, which added a nice touch to an already gorgeous table setting. Almost hidden behind the tent was a Smores bar with a fire to roast the marshmallows to perfection! The couple had a wonderful first dance, as well as some nice father/daughter and mother/son dances. The rest of the night was spent tearing it up on the dance floor thanks to DJ Naps who was an amazing guy to work with!
They rounded out the reception with a sky lantern send off. I am so glad I was able to share this day with this fun couple and our great friends.
