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.

Amy and Rob’s wedding at Brookfield Country Club

We are rolling full speed into wedding season and I can’t wait to share Amy and Rob’s wedding at Brookfield Country Club in Clarence NY! Rob and Amy met at a get together that a friend was throwing at a bowling alley. Shortly after they started bowling weekly with a group of friends.  Rob proposed to Amy while they were in the gardens behind Anthony Road Winery on Seneca Lake.

Their wedding day started with the girls having their hair and makeup was done at Salon in the tower, and then heading back to Amy’s parent’s house to pop some champagne and get dressed!  Once Amy was ready they headed over to St. Marys of Swormville to say “I do” in the picturesque old church.

All of their friends and family headed over to the wedding at Brookfield Country club to celebrate with the happy new couple. The rain that had been threatening us all week held off until exactly after portraits outside were finished! After dinner, Amy and Rob kicked off the dancing with a beautifully choreographed dance.  When the formal dances were finished everyone joined them on the dance floor and they danced the night away!

Thank you, Amy and Rob, and your fantastic families for making us feel so welcomed! We are so honored to have documented your wedding day!

Annette + Steven’s wedding at Avanti Mansion

 

I am so excited to share this beautiful wedding at Avanti Mansion! Even though they are from Florida Annette and Steven pushed through the cold March weather and killed their portraits!

Their Story

Both Steven and Annette were raised in Buffalo NY. However, that is not where they met for the first time. They both moved to the same exact city in Florida within a month of each other. Steven moved for work, and Annette moved for better opportunities.

They were only there a few short months before they met each other. Both of them say that is was destined for them to leave Buffalo to find each other, and that it has been a dream come true ever since.

Annette and Steven said an emotional “I do” in the Avanti Mansions Library. With the room decorated with white roses and candles.  Their reception followed in the ballroom, decorated in a glamorous black with gold touches.  Their siblings gave touching speeches before dinner was served. Afterwards they spent the night laughing and dancing with their friends and family who were there to celebrate their marriage!

Thank you both so much for having us be a part of your first day together as husband and wife!  Marc and I wish you both the very best!!

Babeville Asbury Hall Wedding

Our winter weddings continue with Kate and Chas’ Babeville Asbury Hall wedding in Buffalo NY! We have some amazing winter brides this year who are all willing to tough out the cold for unique gorgeous portraits. I couldn’t be more thrilled about it! Kate wanted a winter wonderland with white and silvers for her theme. From her flowers, the girls dresses to the reception at Babeville, you can see this pull through!

 

Their Story

They were setup by Kate’s best friend who grew up with Chas, while Kate was in on the setup Chas had no idea! The both attended a pig roast at her friends parents house on labor day where they hit it off and exchanged numbers. By the next weekend they were on their first date!

With Chas’ 30th birthday coming up a birthday party had been planed with all of their friends and family. Chas asked Kate to go out to dinner with him the night before so just the two of them could celebrate. Chas had an grand elaborate plan to take a walk past her first apartment where they had their first kiss and propose there. However, Kate had a small accident that afternoon that threw off his entire plan! He ended up proposing in our living room as they were getting ready for dinner. They had an amazing time celebrating just the two of them and the following night they got to  celebrate with friends and family at his birthday party!

Their Day

They were married at a pretty little church in North Tonawanda right near where Chas grew up! After the Ceremony we headed over to Canal side where they toughed out the cold for their wedding portraits.

We arrived at the Babeville with enough time for everyone to freshen up and take a look around the gorgeous room! After hilarious intros and emotional speeches, Kate and Chas kicked off their first dance that swung into a beautiful fast paced choreographed number!

Thank you Both so much for allowing us to be apart of your day. You both have such beautiful families and it was such an honor getting to know you guys better!
