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!

Katelyn and Ron’s Doubletree in Niagara Falls wedding photos

Back at the bloggin’ game again and I have quite a few spectacular winter wedding posts that I am going to be blogging soon! Today though, exactly on their one month anniversary you get to see Katelyn and Ron’s Doubletree in Niagara Falls wedding photos! YAYYY!

Their Story

Ron played baseball at Canisius with Kaitlyns brother, but they didn’t meet until after he graduated and began coaching baseball at Niagara University where she was a senior and played softball. Ron spotted Katelyn in a crowd, which led him to ask about her to one of the boys. All of the boys laughed and assumed he was joking and that he knew who she was since, she was Ron’s teammates little sister. Ron informed them all that he was going to date her. Which caused them to laugh even harder and to tell him that he didn’t have a chance and that she was taken.

Later that day Ron introduced himself to Katelyn. During these introductions he explained to her that she was with the wrong guy and he was a way better fit for her. Katelyn told him he was nuts and to leave her alone.

Shortly after Katelyn and the other guy ended up breaking up, and so started the next 8 months of Ron trying to prove himself. Katelyn called called it stalking but Ron called it persistence. You name it, Ron tried it. He would throw to her in the batting cage, sit at her table in the library, ask her out to dinner, but Katelyn would always say no.

Not one to give up, he instead would  bring her dinner, along with chocolate covered strawberries, and notes on her car. He tried for months to get her to give him a chance, he had said “If you just give me one chance we’ll be together forever.” At the end of  senior year Katelyn finally gave in and said yes, and the rest is history.

Their Day

Katelyn wanted a winter wonderland of a wedding. Let me tell you, she got that and then some. It was a straight up blizzard. Luckily everything was really close and we were able to create some absolutely magical moments. They got ready at the Doubletree, then their ceremony was held at St. Marys of Cataract Church, not even a mile away!

For their portraits we headed over to Old Falls street where we all froze! We were lucky enough to take small breaks inside of the Sheraton at the falls, where the WONDERFUL staff of TGI Fridays brought us cups of hot cocoa to warm up!

When the portraits were finally finished Katelyn decided that she absolutely wanted pictures in front of the falls. So we walked 1/4 of a mile, in a blizzard to get these killer portraits! Katelyn officially wins for bravest bride! My absolute favorite line of the night was her Mom giving the speech and saying “Honey, I know you prayed for snow, maybe next time wish for world peace!”

Thank you both so much for trusting me and out vision to make this beautiful pictures of you! I am so honored and so thankful to have been apart of your day!!

Meghan and Mike’s Inn at the West Settlement Wedding, Roxbury NY

Some people you just click immediately with over email and phone. This is the way it was with Meghan and Mike. When we finally met in person the day before the wedding, it was like meeting someone that I had already known forever.  Their Inn at the West Settlement wedding, was such an amazing weekend. I wish I had this terrific writing ability that allowed me to be able to truly convey how magical of a wedding this was.  However, photography is my skill set, not writing. I am still going to try my hardest though 🙂

Their Story

Meghan and Mike met through work, even though they didn’t actually work together. Meghan worked for an orthopedic surgeon and would refer patients to Mike for physical therapy. They slowly started chatting and texting together, which eventually turned to going on runs together.

One day Mike asked Meghan if she would go on a cruise with him and his family…that left two days later! Meghan said yes. When she called her sister to let her know, her sisters response was “Mike who?!” However it couldn’t have been more perfect and they have been inseparable ever since.

How He Asked

Whenever either of them would have a bad day they would text the other and say “Come kidnap me and lets do something fun instead of work.” Meghan had left that Thursday morning with plans of going to work and then meeting up with Mike afterwards to train for the Iron Man marathon.

While the day started off just fine, Mike’s repeatedly texting about how awful his day was going. Eventually his negativity wore off on her and she finally texted him saying “Okay, I am over this day.” He texted back with “Oh! Is this a kidnapping day?? Why don’t you go outside to see if theres something you can be kidnapped in!”

Meghan walked out to the parking lot to see a limo waiting with a chauffeur holding a sign that read ” Meghan Browne you’ve officially been kidnapped.” When she opened the door there was mike, dressed to the nines, asking her if she was ready to be kidnapped.  He then got down on one knee, and this is where Meghan is sure he said a lot of extremely beautiful things, however she has zero memory of it!  He opened the ring box and Meghan exclaimed “You’re F*cking kidding me!” Followed by a “YES!”

She climbed in the limo and they went straight to the airport. You see Mike had already arranged with her bosses to take her away for the weekend, as well as packed a bag for her.  From there they flew to Lauderdale by the Sea. Truly a perfect engagement story.

Their Inn at the West Settlement Wedding Weekend

We got to spend not only Friday and Saturday with everyone, but a bit of Sunday as well (because I seem to be quite forgetful with leaving things behind!) We arrived Friday evening just in time for their pig roast rehearsal dinner to begin. During the evening I was able to grab the both of them and head outside for a quick impromptu engagement session.

The day of the wedding was wet and rainy. Marc dropped me off at the main house where all of the girls were getting dressed, then headed over to where the guys were. Meghan and Mike had planned on a first look so that they would be able to enjoy their cocktail hour with their friends and family.

Even thought it was drizzling a bit, everyone decided to move forward with the outdoors ceremony, and guests were handed umbrellas.  Shortly after Meghan father walked her down the aisle and she took mikes hand, the rain stopped the clouds shifted and the sun came out to smile down on them for the rest of the ceremony.

Their reception was nothing short of amazing. The hilarious toasts from their siblings, emotional first dances were some of my favorite moments. Then you throw in crazy fun Croatian traditional dances, that I got pulled into by the best man, and you have yourself one hell of a kick ass wedding.

Meghan and Mike, Marc and I can’t even explain how much we love you, I wish that we lived closer to each other. Thank you guys, and your friends and family, for welcoming us and treating us like we were one of their own. I promise the next time we head to the city we will make plans to grab dinner together!
