Amanda and Brian’s big day finally came in 2021 with a fall wedding reception at Tewksbury Lodge on the Buffalo River. Unfortunately they had to postpone a few times from their original date in 2020 but when the day for their big celebration finally came, it sure did feel exciting! They had a Lord of the Rings inspired wedding with beautiful details throughout. We did portraits outside at their church, downtown in the Cobblestone District, and at Resurgence Brewery. It was a fun filled day full of laughs and happiness!
Lauren and Robert had planned a small wedding right from the start so luckily had to make no major changes to their wedding day. They had a beautiful and intimate day at Hotel at The Lafayette in downtown Buffalo, NY. The Courtyard Room was the cozy setting for their reception and its courtyard was the perfect romantic setting for their ceremony. The bride got ready at the hotel which allowed us to take portraits on the balcony in the front of the hotel, a wonderful setting! For bride and groom portraits, we stayed near the hotel and walked across the street to Lafayette Square. The whole day was centered around family and it was classic and just right, and most importantly full of joy.
Julie and Nick decided to cancel their 2020 wedding plans and reception but they made the best of it with a stunning spot for their ceremony and portraits. We met at Niagara Falls City Hall on a Friday and they had an intimate civil ceremony. Despite the fact that the day wasn’t what everyone had in mind there were smiles and laughs all around. With the historic building as a backdrop, we were able to capture many beautiful bride and groom portraits.
Denise and Chris got married in the middle of an intense year, for weddings and all around, but they were able to keep a lot of their original plans. With a limited guest count and outdoor space at their chosen venue The Creekside Banquet Facility in Cheektowaga, NY they made things work. Lots of classic and romantic details made the day special. The emotion throughout the day made it unforgettable. A more unique and truly beautiful moment was the father daughter first look. We captured some intimate bride and groom portraits on site at the venue and the ballroom made a perfect backdrop to the ceremonies of the day.
Angela and Jim’s pandemic wedding wasn’t what they originally had in mind but throughout their intimate church ceremony and backyard, garage, and driveway reception the focus was on what truly mattered. 2020 was a tough year for weddings without a doubt. Angela and Jim had to cancel their originally planned reception and give up their dream location. Despite everything and a ton of rain, Angela and Jim got married and made it special. I was honored to be a part of their day.
