Wedding Photography at Riverview Greens Golf Course Rochester

As a person who married someone I met in high school, I appreciate Ashley and Erik’s love story.  The first time Ashley met Erik they were in grade school.

Ashley loves to write.  As a kid, she wrote in her diary.  At her wedding, she had the entry she wrote the very first time she met Erik.

We started out with pictures of getting ready and of the two separately.   Before the wedding, Erik opened a present from Ashley.  It was a journal she wrote to him.  It contained her memories, observations on life, and all of her love for him.  Sometimes they worked opposite hours as people do when they’re building a life together.  When they didn’t get to talk very much she journaled.

This entire wedding was filled with the joy that happened when it feels like two people are surely meant to be together.  It’s amazing how we run into each other in this world and suddenly we’ve met our soul mate.   

First Look With Dad

Ashley and Erik didn’t see each other before the wedding.  They planned to do all their pictures together during their cocktail hour.  Ashley wanted to do something special with her father before she walked down the aisle.  So she and her dad had an emotional first look in the ballroom before the ceremony. 

An Indoor Wedding Ceremony at Riverview Greens

The ballroom at Riverview Greens is gorgeous.  It’s large windows look out on the golf course and let in the warm golden light of summer afternoons.  It’s a unique space for your ceremony and a wonderful alternative to being outdoors on a hot summer day.

I loved Ashley and Erik’s ceremony.  It was beautiful both in aesthetic and emotion.  I was able to capture Erik’s expression of joy as Ashley arrived at the end of the aisle.  The wedding party was amazing standing up with them.  There was so much smiling and a few laughs too.

Wedding Portraits at Riverview Greens Golf Course

After the ceremony, we went outside and celebrated with portraits of the couple and the wedding party.  The sun hit the fountains just right and we even had a rainbow.  That was seriously magical to capture in photos.

Riverview Greens Wedding Reception

When the reception started the sun was setting, and the beautiful glow came through all the windows.  It gave everything warmer and inviting light.  We snuck out of the reception at dusk for some pictures while the water fountains were lit up.  When the sun went down and the venue’s reception lights came on Ashley & Erik had a fantastic dance party.  The lights are a unique feature that Riverview Greens has.  They’re built into the ceiling and make for some awesome reception photographs.
