From the bride:

It is often said that one’s wedding day is the best day of their life; our wedding was no exception. The design, planning, and preparation of our big day culminated in the perfect apogee of our love for one another. The ceremony was held in a local Catholic Church- which was very important to us. The gothic style exterior, cathedral ceilings and stained glass windows added a timeless feeling to our big day. The architectural feel carried over to our photo stop at Syracuse University. We feel the stone columns, ivy wall, and brick buildings clearly defined our style. Our receptions venue, Sky Armory, helped make our vision of a contemporary, downtown loft style reception a reality. From creating the custom, chef-inspired menu to designing the cigar bar, it was truly the creativity and inspiration of the staff at the venue that helped us achieve our vision. One of the most important parts of the day for us was the ability to be surrounded by our closest friends and family. Sharing such a indescribable day with our loved ones truly made our wedding day unforgettable.
