I love shooting weddings at the Aurora Inn. The bridal suite has great light and is perfect for getting ready photos. And the ruins behind the inn are the perfect backdrop for my portrait style.
As a seasoned wedding photographer, I've worked just about everywhere in NY state. So, I've seen it all. The Inns of Aurora are not only historic, unique, gorgeous and elegant, but most importantly highly professional from top to bottom. The food was amazing, the staff was courteous, the attention to detail perfect and yet, they never rushed the Bride and Groom to stay on a tight schedule. Every moment of the day went smoothly and the location and decor cannot be beat! Check out the love here: http://www.mckaysphotography.com/blog/2012/06/vintage-inspired-wedding-at-inns-of-aurora/
As a DJ specializing in weddings I have the opportunity to work at many locations all over Upstate NY and the Fingerlakes region. The Aurora Inn tops my list of favorite venues not because it is beautiful, although it is. And it's not the food, although that is wonderful too. It is the people that make a difference. Heather Davidson and the staff not only provide exquisite service, they do it with pride. You genuinely feel that they are emotionally invested in the success of your event and that they truly enjoy what they do. What they have is a rare find. Come for the beautiful setting and the delicious food. Stay for the personal attention and friendly atmosphere!
