Bright and Sweet: Victoria & Giancarlo’s Bella Wedding

Bright and Sweet: Victoria & Giancarlo’s Bella Wedding

It was a gorgeous day in August for Victoria to meet her groom in Highland Park’s sunken gardens. The setting was the perfect backdrop for this beautiful couple to see each other in their finery for the first time that day. The sunlit green grass and gray stone walls offset the bright crimson bridesmaid’s dresses perfectly and made for a dreamy meeting of the bridal party.

Stacy K wowed with creative bouquets featuring deep red, pink and orange roses, red berries, dusty green eucalyptus and succulents.

Victoria donned a hand-embellished veil for the ceremony and for portraits at the reception venue. The Memorial Art Gallery is a fantastic location for a party. Guests gathered in the sky-lit atrium for cocktails then dined and danced in the elegant ballroom.

Victoria chose lovely details like the Anthropologie terrariums which she put together with orchids, moss and little creature figurines. She stunned in her BHLDN gown with the gorgeous lace back and then thrilled again when she entered the reception in a gorgeous red embroidered Chinese gown.

Working at Victoria and Giancarlo’s wedding felt more like being a comfortable, welcome guest.  Giancarlo made sure we were enjoying our dinner (yes! Max Rochester always makes an excellent meal) and the lovely Alixann Loosle who came all the way from Utah to take these gorgeous photographs was delightful company throughout the evening.

We wish this kind and joyful couple a lifetime of happiness.

Venue Spotlight: The Ballroom 384 at City Grill

It’s not always easy to find the perfect wedding ceremony location so when a new venue opens in Rochester, we’re thrilled to have the opportunity check it out. Jacqui and Sean gave us the opportunity to hold a ceremony in City Grill’s Ballroom.

 

Jacqui & Sean

 

The ballroom can accommodate a large party but can also be arranged for a more intimate event. Located right across the street from the reception location, The Rochester Museum and Science Center, City Grill was the perfect choice for this couple’s ceremony.

We love to design a space to the nines, but it’s also wonderful to start with a space that looks beautiful as-is. The room is clean and modern with a neutral gray and white palette and customizable color lighting. We added some trees and drape and voilà the space was wedding-ready. We’re excited to see the possibilities for using this new space for rehearsal dinners, showers and corporate events.

Wine Country Wedding

Wine Country Wedding

Jessica and Thomas’s romance with each other and with wine started in Ithaca, so it was appropriate that the two current residents of New York City returned to the Finger Lakes wine region for their wedding.

Jessica and Thomas

The two wine directors had a vision for an elegant yet casual event. Both the rehearsal dinner in Ithaca and the wedding on Seneca Lake featured plenty of excellent wine and delicious food. The bride’s mother and a friend of the family provided locally grown floral arrangements in a fresh palette of green and white.

Jessica and Thomas

It was a gorgeous day by the lake. After tasting wine, craft cocktails and beautiful appetizers prepared by Dano’s, guests gathered around the couple for an intimate, informal ceremony overlooking the lake. Dinner (a stuffed suckling pig!), dessert (cupcakes) and dancing (to the amazing Chris Norton Band) followed. It was a pleasure to celebrate this beautiful occasion with Jessica, Thomas and all their wonderful guests. Read more about the wedding in the New York Times Styles Section. See the full gallery on our website.  Photography by Andrew Frasz.

The wedding featured one of our favorite photobooths ever so the Bella team had to pose!
