Justine & Tom | Buffalo Wedding Photography | Hotel Lafayette, Gallagher Pier, City Hall | 07.26.14

I was so excited when Justine and Tom emailed me to tell me they were engaged & that they wanted me to shoot their wedding :) They are such a fun, creative couple and I knew their wedding would be a blast! Justine is an artist and Tom is a musician, and their day was full of lovely moments showcasing them as a couple. We started at a beautiful country church in Alden before heading over to the Outer Harbor and back to the Hotel Lafayette for a wild party!

Dad's reaction.. priceless!

How gorgeous is she!?!

They looked at each other like this all day!

Of all the moments of their day, THIS one is my favorite :)

Love this shot of Justine' hand with her mom's, grandmother's and great grandmother's! How special!

I said no jumping shots unless their epic, and man did this bridal party deliver!

While bridal parties colliding at the same location can sometimes be annoying, it's always fun when they want pictures with you haha. Shout out to our friends at Lori Joyce Photography; you're bridal party was *almost* as much fun as ours ;) 

They are just the cutest!


I just adore this mini-series outside of the Hotel Lafayette, right before the party!


They came in doing a great dance haha - proper way to kick off a party!

That time the bridal party photo-bombed the cake cut... amazing!

These two...

If you've never been to a Polish wedding, you're missing out!

Their wedding also fell on National Dance Day, so of course, they had a fun choreographed dance!

I never tire of shooting inside the courtyards at the gorgeous Hotel Lafayette! And I never, ever tire of celebrating with couples like Justine & Tom! You guys were amazing, and we had so much fun!! Thank you for having us a part of your day!! XOXO
