Jordyn + Ben’s Wedding at Pearl Street at the Webb Buffalo, NY

Jordyn and Ben’s vision for their wedding at Pearl street at the Webb in Buffalo was one that is near to my heart. Books, and lots of them.  Their Library theme was consistent through their whole reception from the moment you walk in and get your “Library” seating card. To their favorite books that decorated the tables.

They met each other on Tinder, finally meeting for the first time at Starbucks. They sat and talked for hours over hot chocolate, having more in common than they realized. Ben surprised Jordyn on her birthday weekend with a trip to Chicago to see Hamilton.  That is where he asked her to marry him!

Thank you both so much for having us document your day with you! I will miss our Dr. Who and who is the better narrator of Harry Potter discussion (even though we both know its Jim Dale lol.) I wish you both the very best!!

Earlier in the week, Ben had told Jordyn that he hoped her dress had polka dots on it, not knowing that it very well did. His tie also had little polka dots on it!

Wedding at Mill Creek Golf Course Churchville, NY | Allie + Jon

 

Allie and Jon’s wedding at Mill Creek Golf Course in Churchville NY is HERE!!  Their day was such a wonderful one starting with all the girls getting ready at Allie and Jon’s house in Rochester, NY.  While Allie and her girls were there having their hair and makeup done by the talented Erin hills and Katie Shane, the boys were at a nearby hotel getting ready for the day.

When Allie and Jon had first started planning their wedding they had looked into having their wedding ceremony at St. Johns Cathedral Park in the city of Rochester.  Even though they loved the space it was a bit too small for what they were looking for.  When they came across Mill creek Golf course and knew that it was the perfect location for their ceremony and wedding!

Allie and Jon had lovingly spent months restoring the beautiful oak doors that were from Allie’s grandparent’s home.  They used these doors as the backdrop for their ceremony that took place on a hill that overlooked the city of Rochester.  After they said “I do” it was off to the beautiful outdoor tent for cocktails and snacks with their loved ones! After dinner and some dancing, the firepit was started and it was s’mores for everyone!

Thank you, Allie and Jon, for making us feel so welcomed, we loved getting to know both of you and your wonderful families. We wish you both a lifetime of happiness!!

Wedding at Buffalo Botanical Gardens | Marie & Austin

 

Marie and Austin’s wedding at Buffalo Botanical Gardens was a pretty magical day! Marie and Austin are the very definition of high school sweethearts. Not only that, but they were also crowned as prom king and queen (seriously, how cute is that?!) They had the same homeroom and shared a lot of classes starting in middle school, but it wasn’t until they started technology classes together in 10th grade, that they became friends. As Sophomore year progressed, so did their friendship. It wasn’t until the beginning of Junior year that they finally began dating. A little over four years later they Austin asked Marie to marry him in the living room of her apartment.

We had 3 hours for portraits for them, so we had a lot of choices when it came to locations. The weather was super iffy so we stayed at the botanical gardens for a while just in case it started to rain!

Wedding at The Athenaeum Hotel at Chautauqua Institution

I first met Alex and Allyce the day after they were engaged while shooting Alex’s sister’s wedding. When Allyce reached out to me to photograph her wedding to say I was over the moon would be an understatement. Alyce and Alex were wonderful and kind, and his family is the very best type of people who make you feel like are one of them within minutes of meeting. Getting to spend another day documenting their amazing wedding at the Athenaeum Hotel at Chautauqua Institution was such a joy and honor.

The two of them first met 11 years ago while attending college at Gannon University. They ran in the same group of friends so the ended up spending a lot of time together at gatherings. They started dating right before graduation, despite the fact that Allyce was moving to Connecticut for graduate school. For two years they drove back and forth over 8 hours on the weekends to see each other. Once Allyce graduated, she and Alex moved to Colorado.

Over the course of those 8 years that they were together as everyone around them started to get married, people would often ask them when they were planning on getting married. Alex asked her to marry him the night before his sister’s wedding. In Allyce’s words “Our engagement was simple, just the two of us, the only way I would have had it.”

We wish you both the very best and can’t wait to see where life takes you! Thanks so much for having us be a part of your wedding day!

Wedding at Kloc’s Grove – Kate & Tyler

 

Kate and Tyler’s wedding at Kloc’s Grove was one that I’ve been looking forward to sharing since we shot it!  These two along with their family and friends are so kind and full of life. It was just so much fun to be apart of.

Their Story

The first time that Kate saw Tyler, he as hanging upside down from a basement ceiling like spider-man, trying to shoot webs at people at a college rugby party they were both at. He was doing this while wearing a suit with a Spiderman shirt underneath it, like Clark Kent’s Superman outfit. Kate’s first impression of him was “OMG what a weirdo.”

Even though they didn’t talk that night, the next day Kate received a friend request from him onFacebook. After a few glasses of wine and some encouragement from her roommates, she decided to message him. They messaged back and forth all night until Kate fell asleep. The next morning she woke up to a message from him saying he would be at the rugby party house again that next night, and his phone number.

The both showed up to the party and spent a lot of time making eye contact back-and-forth. Finally, Tyler worked up the courage to come over and start up a conversation. Once they began to talk, the didn’t stop. The two of them talked for 5 hours straight. A lot of the conversation consisted of him asking her where she had been his whole life and proposing around 4 times. When Kate’s roommates were ready to leave and go back to their apartment, Tyler offered to drive a tipsy Kate back home. From that moment on they were inseparable.

Their Day

Their wedding day was a gorgeously sunny Sunday in May. The girls got dressed at Country Inn Suites, while the guys got ready at District barber shop.  Kate and Tyler decided to do a first look at their outdoor ceremony location at Kloc’s Grove.  Tyler cheered when he saw that Kate’s dress was NOT purple, as everyone had been telling him it would be.  For their first dance he surprised his new wife with a song that he wrote and sang just for her.  They spent the rest of the evening dancing with their friends and family.
