NY Wedding Trends : Unique Venue At The Yards, Rochester NY
Guest blog post presented by Ilana from Sugar and Type, a design studio with a serious passion for paper!
Hello Buffalo! I’m so excited to be a member of Buffalo Indie Weddings, rep’ping your sister city, Rochester! I started my business after getting my Bachelors of Fine Art from RIT, and it’s been an incredible journey. I’ve had the opportunity to work with some amazing clients, and it’s been so fun to share my own journey planning my own wedding!
When Gregg and I started looking for venues, we knew we wanted something unique, and rustic. While ballrooms can be beautiful, it didn’t fit our vision or style. It was exhausting asking friends, searching online, and trying to find alternative solutions, but today there are so many amazing places popping up offering to open their doors to couples looking for an amazing celebration.
The Yards is a collaborative art space in the heart of the historic Rochester Public Market, and it’s just perfect for a unique indie bride. Not to mention it’s the perfect combination with a dessert table from Scratch Bake Shop! I love these mini cupcakes, and of course their choice of display! Anything chalkboard is okay with me (and no – it’s not overdone!)
Being engaged changed how I felt about monograms and initials. Since my name starts with the letter “I” I’ve never been able to find monograms, but Scratch can make all my wildest initial and monogram dreams come true – custom cupcake toppers, and even cookies with your initial cut out? YES please!!!! You’ll see on the last picture that Scratch made all of these deserts Vegan! I love all the details here, and can’t wait to see more pictures from weddings at The Yards!
