My final wedding of the 2014 season was Joe & Nadine in Orchard Park!
Nadine got ready with two of her bridesmaids, lifelong friends from Orchard Park schools and marching band, at her parents’ house in Colden. Her parents proudly told me & showed me the work they’d done on the house recently, both in general and in preparation for the wedding day – it looked wonderful!
Nadine wore her grandmother’s wedding rings on her right hand, seen here next to their own wedding bands.
Nadine sat at the dressing table in her parents’ bedroom to finish getting ready.
The ceremony was at Nativity of Our Lord in Orchard Park, their home parish.
I loved the reflection in the shiny floor!
After the church, we all braved the wind at Knox Farm State Park in East Aurora. If it hadn’t been for the wind, it really wouldn’t have been that cold, but the wind didn’t let up at all so we sought a more sheltered area.
The wind definitely wanted to make Nadine’s veil a big part of the action.
Joe & Nadine love the winding road & fenceline in this part of the park.
Our last pit stop was the Knox Rd soccer fields – Joe and all his groomsmen play soccer and it was a “must” to incorporate in their wedding day! Like I told them, I’ve been doing this 10 years and I can still never say I’ve seen it all!
Finally we arrived at Kloc’s Grove in West Seneca, where everyone was cozying up to the fireplace and enjoying the bar!
Seeing Joe’s smile as he danced with his mom made me hope that the mother-son dance is still a tradition when my son gets married!
I hope you both are having a very fun, relaxing, and WARM time on your honeymoon! I’ll be in touch when your gallery is getting wrapped up!
