When we were first approached for a Monday wedding we were curious. Once we had a chance to speak with Bill and Stephanie, it made perfect sense. Buffalo was where they met and fell in love and it was going to be the focus of their most important day. So a 716 theme it was! (Area code for Buffalo and thus the 7-16-18 wedding day) What a great day! Good people, good weather, good food and fun! We started the day with a "First Look" at William's home, and then being the avid Buffalo Bills fans that they are, their day would not be complete without a good handshake from "Ralph" (Wilson.. historic founder of the Buffalo Bills). Nice he could show up for their special day ;) The ceremony and reception was held at the most beautiful Columns in Elma. What a great place with amazing service and food that was five star! Just perfect! A buffalo wedding cake, a foot ball toss instead of garter and bouquet.... their whole day had scatterings of the 716 theme. Most excellent choice! We had hoped to get some evening images in the courtyard while it was still evening but the last minute thunderstorm moved in and while it altered our timing, it did not stop us from getting a few really nice moments between these two before we left, but you'll have to scroll through to the end to see them :) Loved the Nikes instead of dress shoes! A little bling scattered throughout the day was perfect! Can you believe the bride made these by herself? A handshake from Ralph was a great touch to their day! This was awesome! The table centerpieces were different areas around Buffalo that had meaning to them. And Dad, who is an artist, created this great canvas for them. How unique! And here is the Buffalo cake! The cupcakes were sponge candy and logan berry. Great job by Babycakes Cupcakery Pre-ceremony huddle Nothing like a Daddy and Momma's love Hmm... looks like someone is "flossing" :) This was so cute! The tossed footballs instead of garter and bouquets and the two who caught them had to do a dance off! And could these two dance!! Thank you Bill and Stephanie for allowing us the honor of being part of your most excellent day. We know there will be many, many years of love and happiness ahead of you!
