I have been so excited for this day! Not only do I get to share the gorgeous wedding day of Becky & Craig, but I get to show off all the incredible GIFTED talent you’re about to experience. On top of all that, do you know what today is?! It’s the day of Syracuse First’s Buy Local Bash! Do you remember how this couple met? And how I was so delighted by their locally-inspired lovestory, it became the beginning of this gifted journey? In this season of gratitude I can’t help but overflow with thanksgiving for the immense generosity and talent these professionals brought to this day. I hope I can do justice in showing them off, through the lens of the stunning Leo Timoshuk Photography [assisted by Tyler Brown Studio] with upcoming video footage by Cullen Studios. This day is so jam-packed with goodness it’s going to take two installments! Without any further adieu, I present to you loveGIVESwell: a gifted wedding.
Frank & his staff over at Hair Habitat created unique looks for all the ladies, With no exception, our bride. The Gents enjoyed a hot shave and fresh cut at Saving Face Barbershop right down in Armory Square, with yumster lunch at Empire.
Our bride was gifted this incredible bridal gown by Mirror, Mirror Inc. out of Baldwinsville. Do you remember the dress picking journey? Well, this was the winner! Her handsome groom surprised her with a framed cover of Syracuse Woman Magazine’s spotlight feature of the big day!
Lush and lovely bouquets and boutonniere’s by Whistestop Florist– they were so patient to find us just the right touch of blush, a bit of burgundy and lots of ruffle-y texture!
Completing our ladies look is Holly & Christina of A-List Artistry. I loved just how elegant and dramatic they all looked, and I think they had just a little fun! (and we caught Zach Cullen between action-shot-moments…)
Making our Groom & his Gents look dapper was a huge priority and Giovanni’s Mens Formal Wear came through with style, charm and class. Look at these guys!
And the day has only just begun!! All those amazing moments, services and wedding items were gifted! Can you hardly believe it?! I’m still in awe, truly. So many more dripping-details and magic to reveal to you. Here is our cast of stars– love their work? Don’t hesitate to get in touch with them, while the photos show you how great they are, you can take my word for it: they are all so wonderful to work with!
