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!

“Why are they wearing wind pants?” I asked. “Do you remember the Thong Song?” a bridesmaid asked.

“I have to wear this in the airport tomorrow,” Jamison said. He sounded really thrilled, LOL.

This Cinderella lost both of her shoes. Cute heels are generally not particularly comfy.

The tent had portable air conditioning so the dancing gravitated in that direction.

Jamison & Danielle wrapped up their reception with a glow stick exit!

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. 🙂 Congratulations and I hope you are having a fabulous honeymoon!
