Kristen & Mark | Buffalo Wedding Photography | Hotel Lafayette and St Joseph's Cathedral | 07.12.14

Two of downtown Buffalo's most gorgeous venues, a rooftop photo session, a huuuge bridal party, some seriously crazy dancing & an absolutely beautiful couple… Oh yes, we've got it covered! So excited to be sharing the highlights from Mark & Kristen's big, fabulous wedding, one month ago today :) We had a BLAST hanging with this crew & capturing shots of them all over the city. They had a stunning ceremony at St Joseph's Cathedral before we bounced around town for bridal party pictures before settling in the at The Hotel @ The Lafayette for a wild reception! 

The beading on Kristen's dress was PERFECT!

Simple & stunning orchid bouquet from  Woyshners Flower Market. Love it!

She's gorgeous, am I right!?

Caught this pre-wedding high-five with Mom in the Mural Room at the Pan Am Grill. Too cute!

Meanwhile, during the primping of the ladies, the guys were focused on a game haha. They definitely get the easy end of the whole "getting-ready" part of the day, huh!?

If you've never been inside St Joseph's, you must go visit! It's one of Buffalo's true gems!

Weddings are such a beautiful way to bring everyone together, especially friends or family members who don't get to see each other often. I don't know who these people are but they sure are adorable :)

Thumbs up! Let's get married!!



Love, love, LOVE this shot!

That doorway! Couldn't resist one more photo op before we headed out. 

Ten stories about Buffalo!

Mark asked if I was afraid of heights, and not going to lie, I really didn't know what I was in for when I said "Not at all!!" haha. What a view though!

Bridal party adventures near Silo City!

Love this shot :) A perfect image to end on before we kick off the party!

Hands-down, favorite wedding cake ever! The teal & gold together is amazing! Great job, Butterwood Bakery!

As if the cake wasn't enough, there was a cute little candy bar for favors.

The Marquis room at the Lafayette looked amazing!

All of their tables were named after spots around NYC, one of their favorite places to go together. Loved the touches of gold everywhere!

These four win for best bridal party entrances!

Before her dance with her dad ended, they called out all of the fathers and daughters out to share in the song. This is such a nice way to incorporate your guests into a big moment of your day :) 

They called all the sons & mothers out too; these two were the best haha

A wild bridal party dance to kick-off the night followed by a surprise by some of Kristen's family. The flower girl and her father shared a choreographed dance for all of the guests to watch. The bridesmaids were all in tears!

Don't hate me for sharing this shots ladies haha - just love the emotion here!!

Mark took over the finish the beautiful dance with his wife, and then Patrick from CJ Sound announced that the dance floor was open & everyone went NUTS (especially our bride & groom!!!)

Love this dance Kristen & her mom shared :) So sweet!

What a FUN day & fabulous night!! Thank you, M&K, for being so amazing! Happy One Month Anniversary; cheers to MANY, many more!!

  1. I believe such weddings are much more beautiful and memorable than traditional weddings and I also want to get married in a same way. That is why I want to hire banquet halls in Miami; do you think it is a good idea?
