Hannah Camilleri and Hampton Hughes didn’t have a specific theme for their wedding, but they took inspiration from the history of their relationship. Their first date was at an art museum, which made the Rochester Art Center a fitting choice, and they originally bonded over Boston College football tailgating (Hampton played for the team in college), so they had light-up Vikings and Cowboys hats for fun photo props. “Hampton’s dad played for the Dallas Cowboys, and Hampton is a die-hard Cowboys fan,” Hannah explains. “People loved wearing the hats, passing them around and taking goofy pictures on the dance floor and in our photo booth.” They also named each table after a place they’d visited together and had pictures of their travels displayed in the art center entry. All of that was fun and beautiful, but for Hampton the thoughtful speeches were the highlight. “It’s one of the few times during the day that you can really just soak everything in,” he says.
