Emm & Bill LaRusch 2/7/2014/ Buffalo Wedding Photographers / HotelHotel @ The Lafayette - Buffalo NY

February 12, 2014  •  2 Comments

My first wedding in 2014 and it was a Five Alarm Spectacular!  

Emily Ann Kidder and William Patrick LaRusch tied the knot in the glamorous Grand Marquis Ballroom at the Hotel Lafayette in downtown Buffalo.  Pure white Buffalo snow juxtaposed by fire engine red took center stage from the cake to the bridesmaids' dresses.

Emm and Bill have known each other since they were 14 and 17; Bill was Emm's brother's best friend.  A mutual adolescent crush has blossomed into a life long relationship, sealed with their vows and a kiss on February 7th, 2014.



Our day started at Xtreme Wheels Indoor Skate Park, Bill's favorite haunt.  The warehouse pillars, ramps, and platforms was an exciting backdrop for handsome men decked out in tuxedos.



007 Revealed!

By day, Bill fights fires in the great city of Buffalo. By night, he sheds his coat and helmet revealing... an international man of mystery

7's were "in the cards"

February 7th is a day of fate?  A psychic once told Emm that the number 7 has great significance for her.  Emm's son was born on 11-17-07.  JP has Williams Syndrome which is the deletion genes from the 7th chromosome.  Emily and her groom William (his birthday is 7-27-87) got together after knowing each other for 7 years.

A Touching Moment

Bill's father, Billy LaRusch, sang Cat Steven's "Father and Son".

Burning up the dance floor!

Bill's dance moves set the place on fire!  It got so hot that the Buffalo Fire Department made an appearance.
