Okay, so where do I start? Well first of all, I have thought the world of Jeannette since the moment I met her. She is always so nice, and such a warm-hearted person. Then I met Lindsay at their engagement session, and I knew for sure that this was going to be a special wedding. After meeting their families it is easy to see why Jeannette and Lindsay are the people they are.
This was a hot one too. I mean very hot! Like drenched, hard to breathe hot. It was also a big car issue wedding. Their car was broken into on the engagement shoot when we stopped somewhere in Buffalo for eight minutes of photos. Then my car (with 17,000 miles) decided to break down on the way to the rehearsal dinner. I made it into town, but had to rent a car for the wedding, and the next four days it took to get my part in and have the car fixed. For any of my future brides that are following my blog, this is why I like to arrive a day early when I have to travel. Anything can, and occasionally does happen, even with a new car. If it happens with time to spare then it is much easier to work around the problem. If it happens last minute (which it hasn’t yet) well then, it doesn’t leave many options. Everyone, including myself is more comfortable knowing I have arrived and I am ready to go.
If you are a regular visitor here then you know I love to photograph little kids (having two adorable ones myself) and an image of one will usually make the highlight section. This time it was tougher than usual because I initially had 27 incredible photos of little ones to choose from.
There also seemed to be a lot of little stories going on inside the big story. They may or may not be obvious to slideshow viewers that weren’t there, but I’m sure the ones that were there will appreciate them.
The wedding was at Church of Christ the King in Amherst, NY, and Father Richard H. Augustyn has easily taken over the number one spot as my favorite priest ever. He is without a doubt the nicest, most laid back priest I have had the pleasure to work with! People like him make the whole day go a lot smoother and his sense of humor is a delight.
Shanghai Red’s on the Buffalo waterfront was an excellent choice for the reception. It is a beautiful location with excellent service. Absolute Sound also did a great job with the music and made sure that everyone had a lot of fun.
I wish you many blessings and much love on your journey together Jeannette and Lindsay. It was a pleasure and an honor to do this for you and your families, and I hope you enjoy viewing the images as much as I enjoyed creating them. Please click here to see their slideshow.
