If you are looking for a true Buffalo wedding, look no further than Melissa and Mike. From the wonderful team of vendors, to every little detail of their wedding, their wedding was truly one for the books and the perfect end to wedding season this year. Melissa and Mike are so clearly adored by every single person that interacts with them, and it was an honor to document those memories for them.
We started the day at Melissa’s childhood home, where she was surrounded by dear friends and family. From her impeccable details (seriously, that dress!), to an emotive first look with her bridesmaids, to her very sweet nephews, it was such a lovely morning.
After a beautiful ceremony at St Gabriel’s Church, we made our way over to SPACE for portraits. It was the perfect fit for their elegant, Buffalo affair — complete with original factory windows, a ton of laughter, and vintage arcade games. Melissa and Mike are oh so sweet together, they compliment each other perfectly, and they were all smiles on their wedding day.
Their reception was one-of-a-kind, complete with one of the most magnificent cakes I have ever seen, a jam packed dance floor, belly-laughing toasts, and beautiful formal dances. To top it all off, Melissa had the perfect surprise for Mike. Mike, and his entire family, are die-hard Syracuse fans — even their socks were SU basketball. Melissa organized a visit from Otto the Orange, and I don’t know if there has been a bigger smile than Mike’s. We danced the night away to the incredible sounds of Party of Nine, hands-down one of the best bands in Western New York.
Melissa, Mike, and their loved ones — thank you for being such wonderful human beings and for completely letting us in to your day. You are all truly class acts, it was an honor to document those moments for you. Have a wonderful first holiday as a married couple!
