Real WNY Love Story: Leah and Sean’s Romantic Story Book Rochester Wedding


BIW_McGarry-Wedding-0245

“My husband, Sean, and I met 10 years ago at a bar (so classic). Sean had just moved to Rochester on somewhat of a trial basis, but of course, I have kept him here for a decade now. We fell in love the way people do, and in 2010, Sean surprised me by proposing, ring in hand, at a picturesque spot in Ireland. It happened only several days into a 3 week trip (without cell service to call back home), so it was a very fun and romantic way to begin our engagement.”

“It was our goal to come up with a wedding day that was unique to us. After much discussion, we arrived upon a theme that can only be described as a whimsical, vintage tea party with a subtle nod to Alice in Wonderland. There were a few illustrations from the books showing up here and there (menus, beverage stations, etc.). Dinner had a sort of mad tea party vibe, which I tried to encompass with mismatched china place settings and single blooms of ranunculus with their erratic, curvy stems. Remembering the White Rabbit’s fear of being ‘late for an important date,’ I worked vintage clock faces into the tablescapes! We were able to find a handful of different publications of Alice in Wonderland that I also incorporated into the table decor amongst other vintage and antique books.

Our save-the-dates invited guests to dress with vintage flare if they chose. As we watched our guests arrive from an upstairs window, we were ecstatic to see the results: old-fashioned hats, suspenders, vintage-inspired hairstyles, and more!”

“We considered a photo booth but wanted to stick with the vintage look. With a lot of help from my stepfather, we built a photo booth that was a trifold wall of photos and frames which was a lot of fun for us and all our guests.

At the center of our dessert table was our wedding cake, which I absolutely loved since it was decorated by my husband during the pre-wedding rush less than an hour before our ceremony.”
