Darrel & Ann-Katrin met in Germany and have had a mostly long-distance relationship but now they are ready to start their lives together, instead of just seeing each other on vacation trips! Her parents, sister, cousin & friend were able to make the trip for their wedding here in Buffalo, and soon they’ll be having a wedding in Germany so that all of the rest of her family & friends will be able to celebrate with them!
Seeing how they look at each other gives me no doubt that they’re well-equipped for whatever adventure they tackle next!
Anni and her bridesmaids & parents got ready at The Mansion on Delaware Avenue. She booked it without realizing that her wedding was the day of the Buffalo Marathon, and the race course goes right by the front of the mansion! Everyone got there okay though and we got to cheer on a few stragglers and a few of them shouted their congratulations during Darrel & Anni’s first look!
When Anni was ready, we headed outside to the patio so she & Darrel could have a moment to see each other before we headed off to Knox Farm.
It was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon at Knox.
From there we drove over to La Galleria to get a few more photos before the ceremony.
One of the best men has a little girl who was an absolutely adorable flower girl.
La Galleria provided a stepladder so that I could get a shot of Darrel & Anni with all of their wedding guests. We did a “normal” one first, then I decided that with a group this size, we had to try a heart-shaped one! I think we pulled it off!
Darrel was nice during the cake cutting but Anni didn’t let him off easy!
They beamed all the way through their first dance, then the floor opened up to everyone! Toy Bros was there providing the music and a photo booth, which everyone loved!
Congratulations and I hope your wedding in Germany goes just as well – I’d love to see a couple pictures after it’s over!!
