Hope everyone’s enjoying the holidays! It’s definitely been a busy season for us (much busier than we anticipated)! :)
We had the pleasure of being a part of Sandi and Romie’s awesome Fall wedding in Delaware Park. Personally, I love October weddings. Even though the weather can be unpredictable, and it might be cold, rainy, or snowy (yes, in Buffalo, anything’s possible), Fall is still my favorite season for weddings (and most things). I also adore Delaware Park, and anything that has to do with historic Buffalo, so for me, this was a thoroughly enjoyable wedding!
I started out the day with Sandi and her girls at Now Salon on Elmwood Ave, which is such a cool place to get ready for a wedding.
I love these next two shots SO much. I stepped outside to get myself ready to shoot Sandi getting into her limo, and the adorable little flower girl tried to follow me out!! TOO cute!
This one is a super-fun shot of the bride taking one last look in the mirror before heading outside, but since I shot it through the glass window, I happened to get the reflection of Elmwood Ave, as well. AWESOME.
While I was at the salon, Ben was hanging out with Romie and the guys…
…which definitely included a trip to the Thirsty Buffalo for some pre-wedding drinks. ;)
Next stop for the guys was Delaware Park!!
Sandi and Romie decided to do a “first look,” so they could have all of their formal photos done before the ceremony. The original plan was to set up either in the rose garden or down by Hoyt Lake, but the weather had other plans; so, we set up in the upper level of the Casino, which ended up being just as nice. The whole “first look” thing is soooooo much fun…I get so excited when people ask us to set them up!
After they took a peek at each other, we did some portraits around the outside of the Casino. The rain held off just long enough for us to grab a few great shots!
The rain moved the ceremony from the Rose Garden to the tent, but when you have a couple who is totally in love (like these two love birds), the location never seems to matter. :)
A little bit of fancy zooming…
The reception details were exquisite. The decor was simple, but the dramatic lighting made everything so elegant!
Two super-cool ring shots (sorry, I just couldn’t decide)!!
Some first dance magic…
…and then, there was one heck of a party, complete with Red Bull and freshly spun cotton candy!!
A lovely shot of the Casino by Ben. :)
This is just adorable…
We’ll end our post with these two absolutely lovely night portraits of an absolutely lovely couple. :)
Sandi and Romie – you guys are amazing people. Thank-you so much for choosing us to be a part of your beautiful wedding day…we had a blast! Wishing you both all the best that life has two offer!! :)
