Four years ago Monica & Max went on a blind date, and they instantly connected and began their adventure together. Three years later Max proposed at the Sonnenburg Gardens, a place that held a special place in Max’s and his families heart. He asked her to be is wife in the Italian Garden area and about a year later on July 8th they became husband and wife in front of all of their family and friends at the stunning Franciscan Church of Assumption in Syracuse. So many beautiful details went into their day and Monica and Max just enjoyed every moment.
The celebration continued at the beautiful Lodge at Welch Allyn, and they never cease to amaze me with their coordination, beautifully decorated venue, and delicious food! Brian from Visa Versa Entertainment topped off the venue with gorgeous lighting and an amazing display of the Syracuse Orange colors and logo that holds a special place in Max’s and their family and friends hearts! Monica and Max were just over the moon with his creation!
I met Monica and Max at Sydney & Owens wedding in 2015. Monica was Sydney’s maid of honor and I just fell in love with her that day so when they asked me to document their marriage I was over the moon! They are just one of those couples you can sit and chat and hang with for hours. My husband and I loved seeing them each time over the past year! Thank you both for choosing us to document this special moment in your lives, we just loved being there! I hope you love some of the moments captured from your wedding day! ❤ Cylinda & Chelsea
Monica was an absolutely stunning bride!!! Beautiful inside and out. And I don’t think I have ever seen a bride so laid back on a wedding day. She, like all of us brides, put a lot into the details and wanted everything to flow great, but in the moment of the day, things that didn’t go according to plan didn’t phase her….Even a ripped wedding gown didn’t cause her to blink, she just went with the flow and took in each moment and enjoyed it! My kind of bride! ❤
“I love her ability to make me laugh. She’s caring and has a really good heart. She’s a good person” ~Max
“I love his determination and drive. He’s sweet and caring and funny (sometimes)” ~ Monica Oh he had her full of smiles and laughs today ❤
❤ ❤ ❤ Brought me back to when my dad saw me ❤
Giving his daughter away to a Man he couldn’t picture her without. His speech was so beautiful at the wedding!
One of my favorite moments to capture! Love the happiness of couples on that walk back down the aisle!!
