Francesca + Luke are married! Blessed Sacrament & Arbor Loft | Rochester, New York

Real Wedding


Our inaugural winter wedding left us in awe, and Francesca and Luke’s nuptials on January 13th in Rochester, New York, were nothing short of extraordinary. Their journey to the altar was marked by trials and tribulations, yet their unwavering resilience and love prevailed.

Our collaboration with Francesca began in October 2017, navigating through a series of challenges together. From a venue change to shifting churches and priests multiple times, and ultimately relocating their entire wedding just months before the date to a venue over 2.5 hours away, their determination was unwavering. Not to mention the last-minute adjustments to their honeymoon destination and contending with Rochester’s 18+ inches of snowfall the night before the wedding.

Adding to the complexity, Luke’s frequent travels for work meant Francesca took the reins in meticulously designing their dream wedding. Despite the hurdles, Francesca and Luke’s unwavering love and meticulous attention to detail shone through, creating a day that was nothing short of magical.

Their families rallied around them, providing unwavering support and love, further enriching the celebration. Witnessing their joy and love amidst adversity was a testament to the strength of their bond.

As we reflect on Francesca and Luke’s remarkable journey, we are reminded of the power of love and resilience in overcoming obstacles. Their wedding day stands as a testament to their unwavering commitment to each other and the extraordinary love they share.

Take a glimpse into their stunning wedding day below, a testament to love, resilience, and the beauty that emerges when two souls come together in matrimony.
