Oh my goodness where do I even begin?! Let me just start off by saying that Annie + Artur’s intimate Arbor Loft wedding in Rochester was an absolute dream. Due to the COVID-19 situation, the couple unfortunately had to alter their wedding plans. They went from planning a big wedding with over 200 guests at the Arbor Loft, to having a very small and intimate wedding with their closest friends and family. Annie + Artur basically completely planned two weddings – these two deserve the freaking world. Although they weren’t able to have the big wedding that they had originally planned, their intimate backyard wedding was absolute perfection.
Annie was able to get ready with her girls in the Arbor Loft’s bridal suite. These ladies were having so much fun getting ready for Annie’s big day! Once Artur and his guys arrived, we started to get ready for the couple’s first looks!
Annie + Artur were so excited and anxious to see each other for the first time on their wedding day. I was actually crying behind my camera during their first looks – you can see the emotion of both of their faces, how excited and happy they were to finally be getting married!! Their bridal party was able to watch their first look happen too which was so special.
After the couples first looks, we were able to adventure all around the Arbor Loft with their bridal party, as well as explore a little bit outside. I cannot even begin to tell you how perfect the weather was – not too hot, not too cold – the perfect temperature and the prettiest blue sky.
Once we were done with the bridal party photos, we all packed up and headed out the Annie’s parents backyard where the ceremony and reception took place!
Annie + Artur had the most beautiful ceremony and said “I do” in front the prettiest blue pond in their backyard. Surrounding the pond was the tallest weeping willow trees. Holy cow it was perfection.
Annie + Artur celebrated their marriage with a small reception by the pond in their backyard with their closest friends and family. The food was out of this world delicious and the music was beautiful. Annie’s mom and bridesmaids even sang a few beautiful songs for the happy couple, it was so special!
Let me just tell you about these cuties first dance. Omg cuteness overload!!! They danced to “Can’t Help Falling in Love” and they even made up their own little choreography. I am stinking obsessed and I will never get over it!
After their first dance, I stole the lovely bride and groom away to enjoy the prettiest golden hour. These moments were so special because they were able to walk away from everything that was going on and just reflect on the day that they had just shared with each other.
Annie + Artur’s intimate Arbor Loft wedding was absolute perfection. It was the best day and I am so happy that these two were able to have the most incredible day celebrating their love.
