I recently had the privilege of photography a stunning Sicilian themed bridal shower at the beautiful historic hotel Utica in the heart of Downtown Utica for bride to be Pietra Baio. Everything was perfect from the yellow designed table cloths to the lemon accented flower arrangements placed on every table. They even had an Italian pastry and cookie bar made by her very talented future mother-in-law Rosa Yozzo (If you've never been to Rosa's Italian Bakery & Deli in South Utica then you're missing out, just saying!) The speeches by Pietra's mother and future mother in law were so sweet and sentimental, I think I even got a little teary eyed! Congratulations to Pietra & Joey and thank you for letting me capturing your big day before THE big day! Here's to many years of love and happiness!
