Jennifer & Russ are married! [Gilbertsville Farmhouse South New Berlin, NY]

Real Wedding


Jenn and Russ’s wedding day was not just a celebration of their love, but also a testament to their wonderful sense of humor and deep connection. From their heartfelt vows to their playful banter, it was clear that these two are not just partners, but also the best of friends.

Their vows, filled with humor and sincerity, captured the essence of their relationship perfectly. Jenn’s admission of her pre-coffee hangry moments and Russ’s promise to love her through them showed the depth of their understanding and acceptance of each other’s quirks.

The playful exchanges about correcting grammar and taking silly photos on each other’s phones added a light-hearted touch to their vows, reflecting the fun-loving nature of their relationship. It’s evident that laughter is a cornerstone of their partnership, and they know just how to keep each other smiling.

As someone who can relate to Jenn’s need for coffee to kickstart the day (and the occasional pre-coffee grumpiness), I couldn’t help but chuckle at their vows. After all, who hasn’t said or done something silly before their morning caffeine fix?

Jenn and Russ’s wedding was not just a joyous occasion, but also a reminder of the importance of laughter, love, and embracing each other’s quirks. It was an honor to be part of their special day, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to witness their beautiful love story unfold.

What an amazing way to kick off our season! Thank you Jenn & Russ!!

Jenn’s sweet words – “We utilized C & A for day of wedding coordination and florals. I can’t recommend them enough for both services!
For wedding coordination, Ashley would email me weekly checking in and sent reminders for things that needed to be done. Whenever I had questions or concerns, Ashley would respond promptly with answers and solutions. However silly I felt asking a question, she was helpful. We did a walk through, which helped with a lot of logistics I didn’t even think of. They offered suggestions based on their previous experiences with the venue. The day before they came to rehearsal, and though I was stressed out, they reminded me to breathe, relax, and they’d handle the rest. This is exactly what I needed! The day of they came for set up (everything was exactly how I envisioned it), their attention to detail is impeccable. Everything seemed to run smoothly, and if any hiccups happened, they handled it!
For florals, I sent Ashley some pins from Pinterest with bouquets and centerpieces that I liked. I also sent her my bridesmaid’s dresses because they were floral and I wanted to compliment them. Based on those, Ashley sent me some flowers, which were perfect. She included snapdragons, which brought back childhood memories and I would have never thought of including. The florals in person were more beautiful than what I had pinned and imagined. We received so many compliments on the centerpieces, floral crowns, bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages.
I was hesitant a first to hire a wedding coordinator, but honestly, I don’t know what I would have done without C &A! We appreciate how they made our day everything we wanted it to be!”
