Charles and Liz’s wedding at the Twentieth Century Club

Charles and Liz’s wedding at the Twentieth Century Club started out at the Curtis Hotel in downtown Buffalo, NY. The girls had their hair and makeup done in the hotel room by Groom Service, while the guys got dressed in a separate room down the hall. After the boys were dressed they headed up to the rooftop bar for portraits.

Charles and Liz decided to do a first look at the Ellicott Square Building. With doing the first look and getting all of their portraits finished before the ceremony it allowed them to be with their guests through all of cocktail hour. We were able to get the majority of their portraits in the beautiful building. Afterwards the bridal party then headed over to the historic Swannie House for a quick shot before heading over to the ceremony site.

We arrived at the Twentieth Century Club to see the ceremony site fully set up. The chuppah is beautifully decorated with flowers by Williams florist. After Liz and Charles say “I do!” they joined all of their guests for cocktail hour.

Their guests are eventually invited to take their seats for dinner and Liz and Charles are introduced for the first time as a married couple. They walk into the ballroom and right into their first dance. Their first dance has a bit of surprise at the end, when the tempo is picked up and pair breaks into a fun fast dance routine. The rest of their evening is filled with a ton of dancing and my the ever favorite Hora, where they are both hoisted over the heads of their friends and family holding onto a cloth napkin.

Thank you both so much for allowing Marc and I to be a part of your day and to document it for you!

Jessica and Jake’s Wedding at Templeton Landing, Buffalo NY

Are you all ready for Jessica and Jake’s wedding at Templeton Landing! Jessica’s vision for the day was to bring the outdoors inside! She wants lots of greenery and white as well as navy blue to tie in the waterfront at Templeton Landing. The navy blue theme ran through from the girls dressing robes, to their dresses and the boys suits!

The girls started the day at the fabulous Salon Elizabeth .  Lizzy did her hair and makeup, while the rest of the team worked on her bridesmaids. Once everyone was ready we took the girls outside to the patio and took a few portraits of them in their dressing robes. Jess then got dressed in the beautiful back room, helped by her mom and sister.

First looks will forever be one of my favorite things to photograph, and Jessica and Jakes was no different. Jake waited patiently outside of the Adams Mark hotel, in front of the fountain and 2:00pm, to see his beautiful bride for the first time.  After their sweet first look, they all took the limo over to the outer harbor for the bridal party portraits. The outer harbor tied in perfectly with the theme of their wedding. You have such a large range of backdrops, from high grass to the beautiful rocks in front of the water.

Their ceremony was set for 5:00pm at St. Louis Church, we arrived with plenty of time for the girls to freshen up and the boys to greet the guests. Jessica’s father walked her down the aisle and there wasn’t a dry eye in the church. Jessica and Jake said “I do” and had a Bubble exit planned with their bridal party to exit the church to!

Their reception at Templeton Landing was decorated exactly how Jessica had envisioned. Maureen’s Buffalo Wholesale , decorated the tables with a combination of high and low vases overflowing with loads of greenery and white flowers. They had table clothes brough in and covered the chairs with navy blue slip covers and pretty wide white ribbons from Tesoro Event Rentals. Their cocktail hour took place on the rooftop patio that overlooked the water while the sun was setting. Their guests were invited down to the reception room and the reception officially started. Hilarious intros, tear jerking toasts, and beautiful first dances started the evening off. Once the party was in full blast, we snuck off to the rooftop for a final night portrait.

Thank you both so very much for making us feel so welcomed and to your wonderful family for treating us like we were one of their own! We loved spending the entire day with the both of you!!

Today on the blog is James and Stacie’s wedding at wedding at Kotecki’s Grandview Grove. Stacie and James are both nurses. They met at their job Kenmore Mercy Hospital. They knew right away that they were going to be a perfect match for each other. Stacie said that James reminded her a lot of her father. They are both massive Buffalo Bills fans, so when it came time for James to propose, he chose the best place on the earth to a bills fan, the 50 yards line at New Era Field.

The day of the wedding Stacie got dressed at her home in Depew. Surrounded by her sister, aunt, and soon to be mother and sister inlaw. They laughed, and drank mimosas while their hair and makeup was done. Once the girls were dressed, they got inside the limo and headed over to Saint John Vianney where James was waiting for his bride. After their beautiful ceremony they exited our the church surrounded by all of their friends and family and lots and lots of bubbles.

From the church we went straight to Kotecki’s Grandview Grove. All of their bridal portraits were shot right on Kotcki’s property, which is full of great little nooks! Once they joined they guests inside, the night progressed with beautiful toasts, yummy food and fun champagne jello shots!

Thank you both so much for letting us be apart of your beautiful day! It was truly such a special emotional day and we just loved being apart of it. We can’t wait for you to see your full gallery!

Bridget and Tom’s Wedding at Ventosa Vineyards, Geneva NY

Today on the blog is Bridget and Tom’s wedding at ventosa vineyards in Geneva, NY! Bridget and Tom met while they were still in highschool, working at the zoo in the Jungle cafe. They quickly because good friends. Their friendship continued while Bridget was at college. She would come home during the winter and they would spend the days snowboarding at a mountain near where they lived. After 4 years of friendship they finally started dating. As they relationship progressed they added an adorable golden retriever Oliver, and bought their first house together.

When Tom was planning his proposal to Bridget he wanted it to be somewhere that was meaningful to her. He finally decided on her families lakehouse in Geneva, NY. When the day came he tried to convince Bridget to take Oliver to the lake house so he could go swimming, then afterwards go to her favorite restaurant. However, the weather was not on Tom’s side that day. Bridget did not want to take Oliver swimming. Tom quickly came up with a new plan to take Oliver to the dog park and meet up with friends afterwards. Even though plans were changed, he still managed to get a photographer to be at the spot that he was going to propose. While they were walking up a hill at the park, tom started to slow down and when Bridget turned around he was down on one knee! They were met at the park by their friends and they all celebrated the happy news together!

Their Day

September 1, 2018 came so fast. They both go ready at the Ramada in Geneva. For their first look we headed to Bridgets family lakehouse, the one where Tom had originally wanted to propose. Tom waited out on the dock facing Seneca lake while Bridget walked up to him and gently tapped him on the shoulder. Afterwards they walked to her grandparents driveway to take a picture of her and tom walking down the driveway, the same driveway that her grandparents walked up and down everyday.

Their ceremony and reception both took place at Ventosa Vineyards, with the ceremony site overlooking the gorgeous big tree and Seneca lake. After the ceremony everyone headed inside for the cocktail hour and dinner, and might I add some of the yummiest eggplant parmesan I have ever eaten! After dinner and sunset portraits were finished, Silver Arrow Band started to play and the party was on! After hours of dancing they said goodbye to their family and finished the night with all of their guests with a sparkler exit.

Thank you both so much for letting us be a part of your day! I have enjoyed getting to know you over the past year, from your engagement session to the wedding. We wish you both the very best!!

Alyssa and Rick’s Wedding at Glenora Winery, Finger Lakes NY

Their Day

Alyssa and Rick’s wedding at Glenora Winery was a dream come true. A sunny, breezy, Saturday in the middle of August, is what every bride dreams of. Especially when that bride is having an outdoor ceremony! Weddings in the Finger Lakes are quickly becoming my favorite weddings to photograph.

The entire bridal party got ready in Glenora’s hotel rooms. Alyssa rented a small cottage on the property for her and her bridesmaids to get dressed in. Alyssa said that when she saw the one wall filled with windows, she knew it would be perfect to hang her dress in. She was right! The room was  the most adorable A frame room, filled to the ceiling with windows. That wall was a perfect place to hang and photograph her dress!

Alyssa and Rick said their vows in front of a flower adorned arbor that overlooked Glenora Vineyards and Seneca Lake. To make the moment even more personal, they are married by one of Rick’s childhood friends. After the ceremony they are greeted by the AMAZING events manager James, who hands them a glass of wine to cheers with their friends and family.

Their evening is filled with personal touches that really makes their wedding unique. The intros are done in a Sportscaster style, that gives the background and stats of each “player”. During their first dances a recording of them thanking their parents for being there and being amazing begins to play, as well as letters they wrote to each other.  They finished off the evening with a beautiful sparkler exit with their family and bridal party.

Thank you both so much for letting us be a part of your magical day. We enjoyed getting to know you both so much and wish you the very best!
