Wedding at the Marriott Syracuse Downtown

Avery & Bianca’s Wedding at the Marriott Syracuse Downtown

Drum roll, please!! The Marriott Syracuse Downtown has opened its doors for weddings since its amazing renovation project began. Meet Avery and Bianca, the FIRST couple to celebrate their wedding in the new Marriott Syracuse Downtown. This hotel is formerly known as the Hotel Syracuse. And while its name has changed, the leadership is taking this gorgeous piece of history and bringing it back to its roots! How exciting!

Why I Loved Working With Avery & Bianca on Their Classic Wedding

It is not every day I get to photograph a wedding that speaks to ALL my style desires. Every photographer has a unique preference when it comes to his or her “look.” Vrooman Photography’s is simple. I love a classic, black-tie affair that remains classic and sophisticated, no matter the era and regardless of trends that wane. A wedding should be an event that aesthetically reflects the seriousness and beautiful love between one another. I’d rather hold fast to the Jackie O’s, Audrey Hepburns, and Humphrey Bogarts of the world, than getting sucked into what Pinterest tells me must be pretty for the 2016 wedding season. And folks, this is why I am so lucky Avery and Bianca came into my life. I am still swooning over their stunning and classy wedding at the Marriott Syracuse Downtown. Every detail, from the pillars, crystal chandeliers, gorgeous dance floor, ornate and decorated ceilings–which are SUPER high I might add, and their incredibly efficient and professional staff, made this wedding unique and memorable (AND maybe the reason I did ten happy dances when I got home).

The Marriott Syracuse Downtown was a PERFECT location for two of the classiest and most in-love couples we’ve had the privilege of working with. Can we talk about Bianca’s gorgeous makeup (that she did herself), her stunning cathedral veil, and the classiest hairdo and dress ever! Everything about her look was striking and sophisticated. And Avery sported the most amazing navy blue James Bond tuxedo with black lapels. And it looked AWESOME.

It’s Not Just About The Marriott Syracuse and How Exceptionally Good-looking These Two Are!

But it gets better! These two were just as amazing in personality as they were in appearance! A&B went out of their way to thank anyone who crossed their paths. If only I had a penny for every time they thanked us. These two were trusting. They were flexible. They were not afraid to let us into their dream photos by sharing specific ideas they had in mind. And these are all attributes we crave in a couple. It is rare to find two individuals so interesting and wonderful  unto themselves. But what makes their relationship that much more profound, is to see how they complete one another. Something happens when these two are in the same room, and it is special to behold. Avery makes Bianca laugh. He makes her cry in the most adorable, “I will always love you” kind of way. And the look on Avery’s face when he sees Bianca is one that says, “I appreciate who you are more than anything else in this world.” There is a veteran painting professor from Syracuse University who once said, “Find someone who is fascinating and who stays fascinating.” I think that’s what makes these two so perfect: they’re both found someone truly fascinating. All my best to Avery and Bianca!

With Love, Jennifer

    Wow. Absolutely stunning, Jen. I had no idea The Marriott had already opened- and with such a beautiful ambience! Sometimes I feel like the grand scale of the event gets lost but you manage to capture it effortlessly here. Wedding photography at it’s finest!
