Jess and Brian exchanged vows at the Sonnenberg Gardens and Mansion Estate in New York’s gorgeous Finger Lakes region. In addition to lush gardens and grand columns, the mansion itself provided a stunning backdrop for their ceremony. The colors of its facade even mimicked the wedding’s color palette. A string quartet serenaded Jess and Brian and at the same time, love and laughter filled the air. After their first married kiss, the newlyweds shared a private champagne toast in the mansion’s greenhouse.
Jess was radiant in her A-line gown and fingertip veil and Brian was handsome in gray. The bridesmaids wore non-matching gowns in shades ranging from gray to burgundy. They also carried large bouquets of white florals and greenery. Jess’s bouquet featured pops of burgundy and the groomsmen were certainly dapper in their gray suits and burgundy bow ties.
The reception took place at the nearby Finger Lakes Hotel. The decor featured lush greenery and twinkling fairy lights, while silver and gold accents brought an upscale, polished vibe. Jess and Brian got the party started with their first dance, but after dinner this fun-loving couple served jello shots! Making their reception the perfect blend of high class chic and low key fun. Congratulations Jess and Brian!
