This vintage cameo wedding at Rossi Farms had the most thoughtful details. I also think it had the most details of any wedding I’ve ever photographed! Almost everything brought in was something the bride personally owns, made, or purchased for the wedding. They had a big vision and an amazing team of vendors, and I think it was pulled off beautifully!
Vintage Cameo Wedding at Rossi Farms
The bride described her vision as elegant country fair vintage. Rossi Farms, which has a large barn, lawn, homestead homes for getting ready, and even a “western town”, was the perfect venue to create this look. Cameo played a big theme throughout the day, and I loved that special touch. The bride also had a huge box full of random details just so I had extra stuff to play with for photographs. For instance, doilies, lace, feathers, pearls, ribbons, and vintage wooden spools just to name a few.
Ceremony With A Dove Release
There were so many unique moments included throughout the wedding day. One of my favorites was the bride’s entrance into the ceremony. She rode in on a horse, and made a big loop through western town, before being walked down the aisle. The theatrics was a fun and entertaining aspect for everyone! At the end of the ceremony, the couple each held a dove and shared their first kiss before releasing the doves.
The Tallest Wedding Cake Ever
It’s hard to choose my favorite detail of the day, but I think the star of the show was the tallest wedding cake ever! Leslie, owner of The Cake Room Studio does some of the most detailed cake work that I’ve ever seen. She also loves to say yes to any idea and aims to create true works of art. So, when the bride described to me the kind of cake she envisioned, I knew exactly who to send her to. Leslie did not disappoint! Everyone was photographing and filming the cake. Not only was it about 5 feet tall with about 6 tiers, but it had a cutout in the center of it that included chandeliers that lit up!
I’ll stop chatting with that and let the rest of the story be shown through the photos!

Crystal; Thank you so much for allowing me to “shadow you” throughout the event and take photos although the positioning of the pics you took of the wedding party were amazing. Anna was so happy to be present to send her little brother off into a new life of happiness with Wendy.

What a beautiful wedding, there were not details missed. Between the gown changes, the hair styling, that lovely place settings with complementry china patterns, it was simply beautiful. Congratulations to the couple.
People you meet may forget what you said or what you did but not how you made them feel. Wendy, you made Anna and I feel so welcome for having travelled so far for this special event in your life.
The perfect photographer for such a unique wedding. Everything was so beautifully decorated and the theme was well put together. The pics and video I have seen of the cake is really well done. Speaks highly of your skills with such a big cake and the not so perfect lighting.
