Chautauqua Institution Wedding Photographers


Our first visit of the season to the beautiful Chautauqua Institution did not disappoint! Fun-loving Alyssa and Frank welcomed us with open arms.

Getting to know couples and their family traditions is hands-down one of the best things about weddings. Most of their immediate family had travelled from Lexington, KY, with a smattering of family and friends from all over the country (and world!).

 The morning of the wedding, the girls got pampered in the historic Athenaeum Hotel, and the guys – after showing off their impressive pocket-square-folding skills – toasted the day in custom glasses at the family cottage in Bemus Point. After the ceremony took place in the breezy Hall of Philosophy, the guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the grand porch of the hotel. Following some touching (and comical!) toasts and a delicious dinner, everyone danced the night away to celebrate the Yozwiaks.

 Thank you, Frank, Alyssa, and family, for letting us capture your beautiful day!
