What can we say about the wedding of Stephanie and Justin?
From the beautiful dresses, to the fabulous suits, everything was spot on for both the Ceremony at the Rose Garden and the reception right next door at The Terrace.
As wedding photographers, we often are asked “If there’s limited time between the ceremony and reception, how do we make sure we get all the pictures we’d like of the bridal party?” The answer? Beforehand! Stephanie and Justin didn’t wish to see each other before the ceremony, but also needed pictures done ahead of time, so we coordinated with everyone and kept in constant contact to make sure the Bride (and bridesmaids!) and Groom (and Groomsmen!) never crossed paths ahead of time. We took both bridal parties to the back of the amazing Albright-Knox Art Gallery, were we were really able to get everyone’s personalities to shine:
After that was their beautiful wedding ceremony! It was a beautiful, bright, sunny day in the Rose Garden, and as you can tell, Stephanie and Justin were surrounded by friends, family, and loved one who were absolutely thrilled to be part of their big day:
After their lovely ceremony, we did some traditional lineup shots with the bridal party and families. Then, we were able to whisk away (okay okay it was a couple hundred feet!) the bride and groom to take some of our favorite pictures of the entire year:
Of course, a wedding day full of this much magic has to include has to include an absolute blast of a reception, and yes, your photographers were absolutely bobbing our heads and shuffling our feet to all the amazing tunes, fantastic dances, and packed dance floor:
