We’ve been excited about posting this wedding for a while! So glad it’s finally up! :)
This was one of those days where absolutely everything went perfectly, the weather was GORGEOUS, and love was in the air…seriously, it was an amazing day, and Lindsey and Joe are an amaaaaazing couple! Both Ben and I started out the day at Baker Memorial United Methodist Church in East Aurora, where Lindsey and Joe were doing all of their “getting ready.” It’s such a gorgeous church…the Tiffany stained glass is phenomenal…you’ll see. :)
This church has so many different rooms to choose from, that it was totally possible for Lindsey and Joe to get ready in the same location without seeing each other! Lindsey was in a pretty cool little room with a fireplace, and a piano (YAY!). I did carry her dress around from room to room until I found the perfect window to hang it in, though…a dress with sleeves, hooray! Those are pretty hard to come by, these days…it was beautiful. ;)
I love this shot…Lindsey has a great smile (and the most hilariously contagious laugh ever).
Ben took Joe and his best man to some other cool rooms within the church to grab a few portraits…I love this one.
As the ceremony time crept closer, Joe got a teeny tiny bit more nervous…Ben grabbed this shot of Joe being nervous through the door…it’s so great. It totally captures the moment, I promise. ;)
So, here’s some of the amazing stained glass I mentioned earlier. All of the stained glass in this church was designed and created by Louis C. Tiffany himself – it’s pretty fantastic.
I am in love with this shot of Joe’s reaction to seeing Lindsey walk down the aisle…
…I’m in love with Lindsey’s reaction, too. :)
It was such a beautiful, happy ceremony!
After the ceremony, and some formal shots in the church, we headed over to Knox Farm with just our bride and groom to take some gorgeous portraits! I love all of these…honestly, I can’t even pick a favorite.
Love the sun’s rays in this one…
Our last stop of the day was a super-fun reception at The Roycroft Inn!
The Roycroft is just a stunning venue, and so rich with history – it’s always a pleasure to shoot there. :)
This was most definitely a dancing crowd!!
Lindsey and Joe’s wedding was a morning/afternoon affair, so instead of “night portraits,” we borrowed them for a few “afternoon portraits” in one of The Roycroft’s hidden courtyards. I love the way these turned out – so beautiful! :)
Lindsey and Joe – thank-you so much for allowing us to be a part of such a special day! You guys are both amazing people, and together, you make one phenomenal couple. CONGRATULATIONS!! We wish you all the best! :)
