The bride walked down the courtyard to melodies of Irish Celtic music, with her son, Chad Majecki, and her mother by her side.
The bride wore a custom-designed, ivory, satin lace, three-quarter sleeved gown with a V-neck, open back, and mermaid-style train. It was embellished with beading on the bodice and ivory buttons down the back of the train. The bride chose antique gemstone and pearl accessories, and carried a bouquet of plum and ivory calla lilies and hydrangeas wrapped in plum-colored lace.
Longtime friends Elizabeth Tytka of Sheridan and Lyn O'Brocta of Dunkirk served as bridesmaids for the couple. Both wore tea-length, latte-colored chiffon dresses and carried plum-colored hydrangea bouquets wrapped in lace.
Al MacKenzie and Gary Douglas, both of Dunkirk and longtime friends, served as groomsmen for the couple.
An indoor/outdoor friends and family reception followed the ceremony on the grounds of the Mothers of WWI Sons House by the lake.
The couple took a bike tour of the 1,000 Islands with a Hawaiian honeymoon later. The bride and groom are settling into their new home in Forestville.
