Joyful & Yours.

Sweet Bough Wedding Collective is a partnership between two wedding vendors in the Finger Lakes region supporting joyful, calm, personal, and unique weddings.

The Collective

The collective consists of the two of us – Rachel & Allison. We’ve made the commitment to support couples planning weddings of all makes, shapes, and sizes in the Finger Lakes region, above and beyond our own clientele. As a testament to our commitment to collaboration and the collective, the two of us are are happy to offer discounts and special add-ons to couples that decide to book us both for their wedding. Contact us individually for more information.


Rachel OstlundWedding Coordinator

Rachel found her way into wedding coordination after years as a chef, baker and caterer, but now focuses primarily on coordination (though she still makes a wedding cake or two on the side, and caters a party every now and then).

Allison UsavageWedding Photographer

As a documentary-style photographer, Allison helps couples tell their honest and unfiltered stories. She firmly believes you should spend your wedding day focused on yourself, your partner, and your celebration– not the camera.

Our terms of Engagement

(It was hard for us to pass up the pun.) We abide by these principles, and all of our vendors have agreed that these statements reflect their practices and values as well.


We are on your side. You should never feel like we’re on the opposing team. We strive to compassionately listen to every couple that we work with.


We happily work on weddings for LGBTQ couples, straight couples, couples of all races, ethnicities and religious or non-religious backgrounds. We love love!


We support couples with any budget. We will remain supportive, non-judgemental and will abstain from budget-shaming while we work with you to build your own best day.



A wedding is a celebration of you and your beloved. First and foremost, that’s what we are all here for!

We maintain listings of other vendors that are aligned with our values and practices, that we’ve worked with in the past, and that we’re proud to recommend.
