Ashlea and Brad wanted a wedding that was quintessentially “them,” and by designing the decor elements themselves, they achieved a personal and thoughtful celebration unlike any other. From hand-lettered invites, menus, and seating cards to sentimental items carefully curated by the bride herself, every inch of Ashlea and Brad’s Wadsworth Homestead wedding was their dream come true. Luckily, the sweet couple hired photographer Maile Lani to capture each and every detail that made the most important day of their lives so special.
Ashlea and Brad
Wadsworth Homestead, Geneseo, New York
We wanted our wedding to reflect our lifelong relationship and the personality we developed together: to be outdoors and relaxed, but still elegant at the same time. My vision was to have a soft and romantic secret garden wedding. I loved planning and designing my wedding. I am a designer by trade and needed to find the perfect venue that offered character as well as a clean slate for me to build upon. We searched for what seemed like forever, but stumbled upon the a gorgeous manor house in Geneseo, NY, The Wadsworth Homestead. Built in 1804, the Homestead offered both character and lush gardens we were looking for. It took our breath away and we knew no other venue could ever be so “us.”
After the ceremony, we were taking photos with our lovely photographer, Maile Lani, and I took a second to let it all in and I leaned over to my husband and said “everything is perfect”.
The Couple Recommends:
Maile Lani was great! She shared the same excitement that I did about every little detail and captured it all beautifully. If you are looking for someone who is passionate about film and all the pretty things, Maile Lani is your girl!
