M & J’s outdoor New York wedding at The Warehouse Hornell

As I’m sure you know, New York can get HOT in the summertime. Just our luck, M & J’s wedding happened to take place on hottest day in June. Even with the sweltering weather, everyone managed to have an amazing time and not let it affect them whatsoever!

Now let’s talk about the venue… because it was one for the books. As you can see just from Merissa’s getting ready space, The Warehouse Hornell has allllll the rustic chic vibes you could ask for. There were so many vintage touches that made it feel so authentic, like the old suitcase, mirrors, etc. inside the space. The outdoor portion of the venue had gorgeous string lights that gave such a romantic feel to their reception, I was so obsessed!! If you’re looking for a New York wedding venue, I definitely recommend checking this one out.

A little bit about Merissa & John

Like I said before, Merissa and John treated me like family the entire day. It was so much fun getting to know them as a couple, and also their close friends! They’ve been together for quite some time, we’re talkin’ like a decade or so. They’ve lived all around the U.S. together (um, couples goals am I right?) and finally decided on Rochester, NY to settle down and lay some roots.

Now, Merissa is an actual style icon IRL, so I knew she would pull out all the stops for her wedding day. Her ceremony dress was STUNNING, and while she was getting ready I could not believe how amazing she looked!! We took some sick photos in a vintage car after their ceremony, and her look matched the vibe perfectly. And then for the reception… her outfit change was killer. I mean, you can never go wrong with sunglasses and cowboy hats, especially when you’re as fashionable as Merissa.
