We are so lucky to have the opportunity to work with such great couples! Honestly? Kim and Josh were a pleasure from the moment we met them. We had a ton of fun at their engagement session, so we knew that their wedding would be nothing short of amazing, and we were totally right on with that prediction. These two are so much in love, that it’s almost contagious! They will, without a doubt, enjoy many happy years together. :)
I started out the day with Kim and all of her ladies, at The Spa at Falling Waters in Orchard Park. It’s such a beautiful place, and they did an amazing job getting all the girls ready for the big day!
Checking out the completed up-do…SUCCESS!! Kim looked amazing!
Then, we all headed over to the Hampton Inn and Suites in downtown Buffalo, to get Kim into her dress and FABULOUS shoes!
The finished product – a STUNNING bride!
Meanwhile, Ben was hanging out with Josh and the guys to capture some “getting ready” action!
Then, Ben and all the guys made their way over to what is probably the most amazing church we’ve ever seen – Our Lady of Victory Basilica in Lackawana. This one jumped out at me while selecting blog images…what a cool, fun shot of all the guys outside the church, Ben! LOVE IT!
A few last minute preparations…
…and then, Kim and her father make their grand entrance!
I love these next two shots…right before the kiss, and right after!
A beautiful grand exit. :)
Then, it was over to the Botanical Gardens to get the party started!
The weather that day was all over the place. Kim and Josh chose Delaware Park as the spot for their wedding party shots, but as soon as we got there, the skies opened up and everyone had to run for cover! Luckily, it stopped raining when we got to the Gardens. The sun came out, and we got to take some awesome wedding party shots after all!
The Botanical Gardens are such a lovely place for a wedding reception…and, for adorable bride and groom shots! YAY!
This shot of Ben’s made me laugh out loud! While there’s no denying that the Gardens are absolutely gorgeous, the staff is fabulous, and the weddings that take place there are top notch, there is one downside – it’s unbelievably FREAKING HOT in there!!! Hotter than hot…sweating through your clothes hot! But, in spite of the hot and sticky environment, we managed to have a great time. :)
Cake cutting time!!
LOVE this one!
Aaaahhhhh!!! We see so many “first dances,” and all of them are wonderful in their own ways; but, this one was in a league of its own. It was completely choreographed, rehearsed, and practiced until it was pure perfection! Kim and Josh did an amazing job! :)
Check out these moves!
The dance floor opened up and people were sweatin’ to the oldies…LITERALLY! I think this might have been the Macarena, though…
At the very end of the evening, we borrowed Kim and Josh to grab just a few more “bride and groom” portraits. I love everything about this couple, and everything about these shots! :)
Kim and Josh – you guys are the best! Your wedding day was one to be remembered! Thank-you SO much for choosing us to be a part of your day – we had a blast!! :)
