Erinn and Brian were married in a traditional church ceremony at Willard Memorial followed by a reception at Inns of Aurora in Auburn, N.Y. on June 7. “There are two things we loved — the beautiful setting and the food!” Erinn said. “We wanted an outdoor wedding and having the tent right on one of the Finger Lakes was just perfect. We grew up in the area and love being on the lake, so the setting just felt like ‘us.’ Also, we are huge foodies, and Aurora Inn had one of the best ratings in the region. They definitely didn’t disappoint because everything was absolutely delicious.” The bride wore a sweetheart lace mermaid wedding gown, accessorized with a pair of pink satin bow pumps, while the groom wore a three-piece black suit, accessorized with a solid tie and bulldog cufflinks. “All the personal touches from my family made the day extra special,” she said. “My mom gave me a locket on the morning of the wedding that included various objects such as a piece of her veil, piece of my great great grandma’s dress, and my late grandma’s earrings. I pinned it to my bouquet, and when I walked down the aisle, I knew I had these women with me in spirit.” Bridesmaids wore long coral chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of garden roses, peonies, and olive leaves. “I couldn’t stop staring and smelling at them,” she said. “Saying our vows to each other was the most memorable part of the day, and obviously meant the most.” Tables were decorated with white linens, picture frames with descriptions of special places, and “hubby” and “wifey” chair signs in honor of the newlyweds. Cookies served as favors. “We wrapped them and on each tag wrote, ‘Something sweet for your tooth, and something sweet for your soul,” Erinn said. “Below that, there was 10 different quotes. For example, one from Maya Angelou and Brian’s favorite show Friday Night Lights.”
