We had to travel through torrential rain on the morning of Paul and Ashley's wedding, but by the time we got to Embassy Suites in Buffalo, the rain had subsided, never to return that day. It was a fun day that began with a First Look at Hotel Henry next to Buffalo State where these two first met at a rugby party. Rugby is a big part of their lives and capturing an image of their wedding party in a huddle on the rugby field that conjoins Buffalo State and Hotel Henry was a priority. We have added it to the images below so be sure to check it out. From there we traveled to Templeton Landing where they had a lovely and sunny rooftop wedding and a fun reception with details of comics and candy (His childhood love of comics has spilled into their love of comic book movies and she loves candy). One thing that was uniquely different about this reception and touched me deeply was the father and daughter dance. Her song of choice was "To Sir with Love". I cried to this song in the movie of long ago, and cried to it as she and her father danced to it. I have never before heard of it being used for this purpose (and neither had the DJ), but it fit perfectly. Enjoy the images below and be sure to leave the couple some love in the comment section that follows.
