Rebekah + Zachary | Quincy Cellars Wedding

How did Rebekah and Zachary meet?

Zack and I met at college. He had graduated the year before and was in town to visit his cousin, Kait who was my best friend at the time. (She ended up being my matron of honor!)

How Zack proposed…

He took me to our favorite hiking trail ( which was also his moms favorite trail before she passed a few years ago), and got down on one knee half way through the hike. It was so intimate with just my parents and my brother there with us. And it felt like his mom was right there with us too. So special!

“We planned a rustic barn wedding. We are both very outdoorsy and wanted it to be simple yet elegant. “

“The day went by in such a flash that I feel like every moment was my favorite moment and then all of a sudden it was over! Haha but I think my favorite moment was walking into the winery and seeing everyone that we love, smiling and clapping. I felt so close to everyone and so loved.”

Rebekah reflected on how she felt when she first saw Zack at the end of the aisle:

‘Honestly, I saw him and had to look away so as to not cry the entire ceremony... I’m pretty sure I still did lol. All I felt was love and thankfulness that I was marrying such a wonderful man.”


Rebekah and Zack agreed on their most emotional part of the day. I’d say I agree as well! There was not a dry eye at Quincy Cellars in those moments!

“It was definitely when we were saying our vows to each other. Uncontrollable waterworks.”

“Being married to one another, we most look forward to having someone to share all of life’s crazy moments with.”

I absolutely LOVED Rebekah’s answer to the question of her favorite thing about Zack!

“I always find it funny when people are asked this question, like they can actually choose something about their spouse that is their favorite thing! There are multiple things that I love about Zack... they’re all different and together they create this person who is my favorite on the planet. So Zachary... he is my favorite thing.”

Even better, she answered for Zack since he wasn’t with her when she was answering this! Made me laugh and I know Zack agrees COMPLETELY with Rebekah’s answer!

“Zack is not with me while I’m writing this so his favorite thing about me is everything!”

What’s a wedding day without laughter and unforgettable, sometimes hilarious moments? Rebekah shared a moment I particularly remember witnessing (and documenting of course!) as her favorite (take a look at the images below!):

“When I had my last fitting, no one was able to go with me. So when she showed me where all the buttons and hooks were for my bustle I was out of the dress looking at it. Being in the dress and trying to show everyone where the hooks were was a nightmare! We had to delay dinner for ten minutes because no one could find the hidden buttons! I laugh now but at the time it was stressful for sure.“

Rebekah and Zack have so many incredible and vivid memories from their wedding day. However, one stood out:

“The day went by in such a flash that I feel like every moment was my favorite moment and then all of a sudden it was over! Haha but I think my favorite moment was walking into the winery and seeing everyone that we love, smiling and clapping. I felt so close to everyone and so loved.”

Rebekah and Zack’s advice for anyone planning a wedding in Buffalo, Western New York or anywhere!

“Don’t sweat the little things! No one will notice, including you. The day goes by so fast so it really doesn’t matter in the end.”

Thank you to you both for sharing such kind, genuine words about your experience working with Michelle Day Photography to document your wedding story. I feel words can’t really describe how grateful I am that we met and that I was able to be there to capture every moment of your best day yet. Cheers!

“She was so relaxed and didn’t make us feel stressed or rushed at all. She had a very sweet and calming personality that really put us both at ease and we were able to forget about everything else but us and celebrating our marriage for a few minutes while we focused on our portraits. She was just wonderful!!”
