Zugibe Vineyard Wedding | Amanda & Justin
Zugibe Vineyard Wedding | Dani T Photography | Amanda & Justin
Where do I even begin about this incredible wedding day? From the intimate morning spent with the bride & her mother, to the first look that brought tears to everyone’s eyes to finishing the night dancing with friends and previous brides ( who now have some beautiful baby bumps!). Amanda & Justin had a wedding that was more perfect than we could have ever imagined.
Amanda looked stunning her wedding dress, which was elegant..and even had pockets! She looked exactly like Belle from Beauty & the beast! Every detail was thought out wonderfully. Justin’s cuff links resembled tiny bears, which matched a necklace he had gifted Amanda. The reception was decorated with cascading eucalyptus leaves, white linens and candles, with accented the packed dance floor!
The happy couple shared their fist look together at the Japanese Gardens, where we took a step back to contain our emotional selves to wipe our tears away from watching these two together. Seriously guys…I pack extra tissues for first looks because I bawl like a baby! After their intimate ceremony, we headed over to Twisted Rail Brewing, where these two had their first date before jumping in our cars and driving to the reception at Zugibe Vineyards. We caught the sunset just in time to wrap out this amazing day!
One of my favorite things about this wedding was how included Justin & Amanda’s parents were. We all shared the morning together, laughing, telling stories, sharing marriage advice and remembering when Justin proposed to Amanda.
Thank you so much to all the vendors that made this wedding as perfect as it was! And an even bigger thank you to Amanda & Justin, you two are one of a kind and I could not have been happier or more honored to document your wedding day

A little more from our Bride & Groom…..
What was your most memorable part of the wedding day?
Amanda : “Our first look in the Japanese Garden at Sonnenberg Gardens. All of my nerves and jitters completed melted away as soon as Justin turned around, and it was just complete bliss after that.”
Justin : “When we exchanged vows at the gazebo in Kershaw Park in Canandaigua, NY surrounded by our closest family and friends.”
Any Advice for Future Couples?
Amanda: “Do things your own way that is unique to you as a couple. Often parents or friends will place expectations on how your day "should" look, but stay true to what fits best for you and your partner, and you'll enjoy your day all that much more!”
Justin “Take the time to be in the moment because your wedding day goes by so fast. Also just do a general thank you toast, otherwise you can spend hours going table to table thanking everyone.”
If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything?
Amanda : “Our day turned out to be amazing, there's honestly nothing I would change if I could do it all over again.”
Justin “I wouldn't change a single thing.”
Where did you Honeymoon?
Amanda : “We are in the process of buying a new home so no honeymoon yet, but we plan on eventually honeymooning somewhere on a white sandy beach with unlimited drinks.”
What surprised you most about your wedding day?
Amanda : “How fast the day goes by! You plan for so long and it's over in just a few hours.”
Justin : “When I started tearing up as soon as the bridal entrance song started playing. That song really got me.”
