Samantha Zellonis and Adam Tarczynski were married on the 10th of September, 2016 at the Arrowhead Golf Course in Akron, NY. The day was very humid with a mix of sun and rain. I don’t think mother nature could make up her mind. There was down-pouring rain and blazing sun– even a massive thunder storm later in the evening.
It was a good thing this group had a great sense of humor. The rain suddenly started pouring down in sheets as we were trying to set up a group shot. They were trapped in the gazebo without the bride or photographers. Luckily they were patient as we waited for the storm to pass by.
Sam and Adam both went to the same high school and ran with the same groups of friends, but never spoke believe it or not. In college, a mutual friend set them up on a date. They stayed in touch every day since their first date because they knew they had something special early on. The couple loves traveling, music, road trips to new places and concerts, bowling, and their two rescue dogs– Auggie and Riley. They also love traveling to the Adirondacks. which inspired the rustic theme. The Timberlodge was very fitting with its cabin-like feel.
Sam and Adam love that they can count on one another for anything. Sam loves that Adam pushes her to try new things and Adam loves that she pushes him to be a better person.
I would say that this couple balances each other very well. Adam is more reserved, easy going, and quiet and Samantha is more on the outgoing, detail-oriented side. They both bring out the best in each other and both have a great sense of humor.
I thought it was a very cute touch when the entire bridal party linked hands and danced around the newly-wedded couple.
The reception also included one of our favorite events: the longevity dance. Congratulations to this happy couple.
Thank you Sam and Adam for letting us take part in your special day. You are a great pair. We hope your lives continue to grow in love and happiness together!
