Saturday was a gorgeous day for Erin and Viktor’s wedding celebration. These two had originally planned for a 4/4 wedding, but, well, COVID, so they picked 8/8 as their big day instead (I love the symmetry of it.) Their wedding day at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que started with getting ready at the Marriot Syracuse Downtown.

Before heading to the church, Erin and Vikor shared a first look right outside of the hotel. I loved being close enough to hear Viktor tell his bride how beautiful she was.

The wedding party headed north to St. Mary’s of the Assumption in Baldwinsville for the ceremony.

Erin flexed her amazing crafting skills and made matching masks for all of the guests. What a fantastic idea!

After the ceremony, family and the wedding party headed to one of my favorite spots for portraits, Onondaga Park. With a turn of the century gazebo, huge stone walking bridge, and overlook of Syracuse, it is one of the very best places in Syracuse for portraits.

Erin and Viktor must have been diligently studying modeling magazines in prep for their portraits, because, bam!, they were stunning.

Onward we went after the portraits. The reception was held at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. I love the intimate, yet relaxed feeling of the space. It makes for a perfect mingling/conversation setting.

Parent dances are often some of the most emotional moments for couples. Erin’s love for her father is expressed so sincerely.

When your maid of honor can’t make the wedding due to restrictions, you bring the wedding to her!
