Sarah & Matt

"As I began my search for a venue, Penfield was at the top of the list. I found it on The Knot, and instantly fell in love. It was the first venue I looked at, and to be honest any other venues after that never even came close in comparison. I was hooked on Penfield and knew when I walked in those doors—this was where I wanted to get married." Sarah


The Story

Sarah & Matt’s love story is one for the ages. Boy meets Girl, they go on a great date and, not being ready to jump into a relationship, Girl “ghosts” Boy. Sound familiar? No? Well, you haven’t met Sarah & Matt!


When the couple ultimately reconnected, Matt was willing to overlook Sarah’s (alleged!) flakiness for a second date. A month later, the couple began seriously dating and by the end of the year, they moved in together. Sarah thought that Matt may be “the one” early on in the relationship, but seeing how he took on the role of Dad to their beautiful daughter, Madelyn, sealed the deal.


Sarah and Matt incorporated many unique flourishes to their wedding, to make the day special; to make the day their own. Sarah surprised Matt with a “First Look” with Madelyn and Sarah’s Brothers were more than willing to step in for a “Brother Sister” Dance, in memory of their Father.


It was an intimate wedding in which their main goal was for “everyone to have fun”. Between the rocking beats from their DJ, live music and abundant dessert bar, it was clear that a great time was had by all!



The vision for their wedding?


Easy, Breezy, Laid Back
