Gavin & Meghan – Engaged! | Tifft Nature Preserve & Buffalo Outer Harbor | Buffalo Engagement Photography

Gavin & Meghan actually grew up going to school together but never talked! They reconnected as adults and have now started a life together! They’re getting married next summer and I’m so happy to be a part of it – I photographed both Gavin’s brother Brian’s wedding and his sister Brittany’s wedding and I love, love, love that the Hillery family is having me back again for another wedding – and I look forward to meeting all of Meghan’s family too!

Stephen & Kaley – August 20, 2016 | St Christopher | Sts Cyril & Methody Macedonian | Buffalo Wedding Photography

Stephen & Kaley got married on a beautiful, hot summer day in Buffalo!

Kaley actually grew up just down the street from Liz, whose wedding I photographed last weekend! It was funny to be on the same street two weeks in a row. I met Kaley, her parents, and all of her bridal party in her childhood home where they played cards until it was time to get ready. Kaley’s tank said “I’m getting married” and her bridesmaids’ said “So we’re getting drunk”!

I loved their beautiful “Save the Date” card, using a photo I took at their engagement session last fall!

Kaley facetimed with her cousin and his little girl, whose first birthday was that day!

I wasn’t in the room when the videographer first recorded Kaley reading her card from Steve (so that he could have clear audio without any shutter sounds) but he had her read it a second time (with less crying) and then she opened her gift – a beautiful diamond necklace.

She had just her mom & maid of honor help her get dressed, so we arranged a “first look” for her bridesmaids to see her when she came downstairs! Waterworks.

Here is the family dog, Cooper, and Steve & Kaley’s puppy, Finnegan.

I left Lake View and drove up to Tonawanda where Steve was getting ready with his parents and groomsmen at his childhood home. They were already pretty well dressed except for cufflinks, pocket squares and shoes.

We took a couple pictures outside in the yard and one of the groomsmen, a cop, pretended to cuff Steve.

Steve opened his gifts from Kaley which included a new watch, cigars, his & hers mugs, and a big new Buffalo Bills flag!

When it became clear that the limo wasn’t going to arrive in time to get the guys to the church, everyone carried snacks & drinks out to their cars and carpooled the couple of blocks to St Christopher.

This is Steve’s family’s parish – his parents got married here, and Steve was the first baby baptized in the newly built church building in 1990.

After everything wrapped up at the church, everybody headed down to Gallagher Pier – big group, but everyone was very cooperative!

We also made a stop at Kaley’s workplace, Hamburg Brewing Company!

I should have asked what beers these were so I could give them a shoutout.

From there, we made one last drive over to Sts Cyril and Methody Macedonian Orthodox Church in Blasdell for the reception.

This was one of the most animated cake smashes I’ve seen in a while!

John & Elizabeth – August 13, 2016 | Wanakah Country Club | Buffalo Wedding Photography

As I said on my facebook page, “John & Liz may not have gotten the weather they had hoped and planned for, but they got a beautiful day they’ll remember for a lifetime, surrounded by family and friends who love them so very much!” This photo was taken right after a torrential downpour, but they were still all smiles!

Liz and her bridesmaids got ready at her parents’ house, which is also the home she grew up in. It was hottttttt and everyone stood near fans as much as possible!

Nicole, the coordinator, helped Liz by holding a cold compress on the back of her neck.

I drove probably the shortest drive I’ve ever had between a bride’s home and a church, and arrived at St John Paul II Parish. John & the guys arrived soon after.

Everyone exited the church in anticipation of John & Liz’s bubble exit. One of their guests took a bunch of photos as well, including one seemingly of me!

They couldn’t come out from under the portico because of the rain but their smiles were ear to ear!

In addition to her bridesmaids, Liz had her eight nieces (the baby from her family’s side, the others from John’s family) stand up with her! They were beautiful!

After the church, we drove down to John’s parents’ home on the shore of Lake Erie. Thankfully the rain held off for a bit so we could do some pictures outside their house!

When we arrived up at Wanakah, I knew we had to hurry to get some pictures in before the rain hit – “Get closer!” I shouted at the groomsmen. They got closer.

Very quickly after that, the sky opened up, and the staff sounded the siren for all golfers to come in off the course. One of the groomsmen tried to open up some of the umbrellas that were purchased for such an occasion, only to find the handle come off in his hand immediately.

We retreated inside and made the best of the rainstorm.

The downpour passed, and we went outside again – it was beautiful!

They had a sign welcoming guests that said “Thank you for bee-ing here!” and each guest got a jar of honey.

After dinner, guests joined John & Liz out under the patio tent for dancing with Nik Lite.

John & Liz both grew up in Frontier School district, only about 2.5 miles apart, but met working as lifeguards at Hamburg Beach! A few of their guests made this cartoon cutout for them to have at their wedding reception and it was a hit!

The band did a great job hearing the crowd entertained – it was the first time I’ve ever heard a wedding band play “The Middle” by Jimmy Eat World! All of John’s cousins got together for a photo, included here.

I have no idea what was going on in this first photo, but when I broke through the edge of the crowd, Liz was standing on John, who was lying on top of several other people, who were all barrel rolling across the floor! I can never, ever say I’ve seen it all.

John & Liz, you guys are awesome, everyone loves you, and I can see why. You will be extremely happy in your long, long marriage if you keep going the way you’ve been and stay surrounded by people who will never stop cheering you on! Enjoy your relaxing honeymoon!!!

Sean & Samantha – August 12, 2016 | Buffalo Botanical Gardens | Buffalo Wedding Photography

Sean & Samantha got married on one of the hottest, muggiest days of 2016 in Buffalo! They did it with smiles and love!!!

Sammy & her girls got ready at a hotel near the airport. Sam shares my love for Harry Potter – I loved her Deathly Hallows details as she got dressed!

Their entire wedding – ceremony and reception – was held at the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens. The north dome is under heavy renovation but I couldn’t resist getting an exterior shot of the building!

Last summer, we photographed their engagement pictures at Niagara Falls on a beastly hot & humid day and we all agreed to wish for a cooler, more temperate day for the wedding. We must not have wished quite hard enough because it was more of the same, but Sean & Sammy provided their guests with fans to use during the (short!) ceremony!

They did one just like this at their engagement session so of course we had to do one on their wedding day!

Anybody who knows me knows I was like “EEEEEEEE!!!!!” inside when I saw their cake topper and guest book!!! I made an entry, and advised them to always “pursue that flighty temptress, adventure!”

Jamison & Danielle – August 5, 2016 | Avanti Mansion | Buffalo Wedding Photography

Danielle and her maid of honor each have a tattoo on her foot that says “I hope you dance.” I thought this was a perfect photo for Jamison & Danielle.

Danielle, her mom, and her bridesmaids arrived. I noticed Danielle looked a little less happy than I expected. Turns out she’d spent the morning at the doctor and then filling a prescription for a nebulizer for a respiratory infection – yikes! She was in quite a good mood, considering!!

Danielle loves all things Disney and in the ceremony vows, I heard Jamison promise to take her to Disney once a year. She had her bridesmaids put this decal on his car bumper.

The bouquets were wood, and they were beautiful (and always will be, because they’re wood!) – she got them from EcoFlower.

Jamison & his guys were not a terribly serious bunch.

Thinking back to their engagement session, Jamison’s tie didn’t surprise me at all!

She ordered this case from Etsy and it was an adorable prop for the ring bearer, who did an awesome job!

The officiant announced that Danielle wished for everyone to face forward as she approached the top of the aisle, so that Jamison could be the first one to see her as she entered with her dad. This was his smile as she stepped out at the top of the stairs.

Their sunken garden ceremony site is beautiful.

After the ceremony we did the requisite family pictures and normally I don’t blog those, but I couldn’t pass up this one of Jamison with his sister and Danielle! They decided to kiss him but they didn’t know he made that face while they did it!

Jamison’s ring was unique, and Danielle’s ring was as beautiful as ever with a coordinating band.

As I said earlier, not a super formal group.

After we finished up some pictures down in the ceremony garden, the wedding party formed this tunnel (they called it an Eiffel Tower) for Jamison & Danielle!

When I took these photos, I didn’t even notice the Mickey ears on the cake topper but it doesn’t surprise me at all!

Your wedding was super fun – I’m sure everyone agrees! Yes, it was hot, but we all were so happy to be there for you on your big day that everyone was okay with sweating off a pound or two. ๐Ÿ™‚ Congratulations and I hope you are having a fabulous honeymoon!
