Jeff & Lia’s Edison Club Wedding

Five years ago Jeff and Lia met while attending Utica College where they had a somewhat comedic start. Jeff noticed Lia at school and asked her out. After their first date, Jeff followed up for a second date, but Lia who is quite a fan of naps and was 100% focused on her studies kept missing him stopping by. As Jeff is a journalist, I am not sure why he didn’t leave a note, but that is a question for me to ask some other time. Finally one day on campus they bumped into each other and fourteen months after their fist date, they finally had their second. After that they have been practically inseparable making it official on 10.2.15  as Mr. & Mrs. We are all just so glad that they did bump into one another because they are just the sweetest couple and so perfect for each other. I knew that when at one of our meetings, Lia said to me with tears in her eyes “Katherine, I just look at him and think how lucky am I that I get to marry this man.”. It was seriously the sweetest thing ever. They both love the outdoors and fall which is why the chose to have their wedding in Upstate NY at the Edison Club. We are still working our way to the full bloom of the fall foliage but I scouted out some spots for our photos, which worked out perfectly. We also were so lucky that we didn’t have rain as the forecast was calling for some drops all week. I think that luck is a theme with this couple. They are so lucky to have one another and so lucky to love each other as much as they do. Seriously, just look at how they look at each other. They are lucky to have amazing families, fantastic friends (we just adored the bridal party) and Jeff’s grandparents who are the quintessence of lasting love and romance. We feel so lucky to have spent this incredible day with them and to capture these beautiful memories!

They have been married for 60+ years. At the reception Joe requested a special song so he too could dance with his bride. He knew every word and sang most of the lyrics to her. It was nothing short of amazing to see this lasting love. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

Upstate_Fall_Wedding_055This is what Joe sang to Be from The song My Prayer by The Platter:
“My prayer is to linger with you
At the end of the day in a dream that’s divine
My prayer is a rapture in blue
With the world far away and your lips close to mine”.
Upstate_Fall_Wedding_056Lia and her Mom also shared a special dance that was so wonderful! Upstate_Fall_Wedding_057DJ Hollister turned up the beat and heat with some great music.
