This Rochester brunch wedding celebration in the Finger Lakes, New York was so much fun to be apart of. Who doesn’t love a brunch wedding theme! Naomi and Max met in Thailand and stayed in touch becoming great friends. After only knowing her for a month, Max traveled to be with Naomi after her dad had passed away. They were in the process of planning a trip to Japan when the pandemic hit in 2020. Naomi wanted to visit Japan because it was an important place to her dad, and this is where Max had originally planned to propose. When the pandemic hit, the couple didn’t know how long they would be apart from each other as Max is from Germany and Naomi is from the United States. Max decided to plan Naomi a picnic in their apartment where they would celebrate every holiday is case they had to be apart for them. This is how Max proposed, including their beloved dog Bowie!
The couple ended up eloping just the two of them in Switzerland. They are so adventurous and love to travel together! They were able to celebrate their marriage back in German with Max’s family. So, Naomi was so excited when she reached out to me to plan a celebration of their marriage with her family in the United States!
Naomi is so creative and has such an amazing eye for decorating. I told her she should become a party planner! She planned this beautiful Rochester brunch wedding celebration all of her own. As you can see in the gallery below, every little detail was so thought-out, beautiful, and personalized. They had a fun mimosa bar, a delicious brunch food set up, and even adorable cookie favors of their dog Bowie who wasn’t able to be there.
Naomi and Max are the sweetest couple, and I had so much fun helping them out with ideas to plan this perfect day! Naomi was really inspired by my elopement decorations, we had many wedding planning dates bouncing ideas off of each other! Getting to be so involved with my couples wedding planning is one of my favorite parts about my job. If you are looking for a wedding photographer who is so much more than just another vendor showing up on your day, reach out to me! I am definitely your girl!
