What should I say...? "Happy New Year!" or "Congratulations!" Why not both!?!?
Johnny and Lauren's New Year's wedding in Hyatt was absolutely perfect. I love New Years Eve weddings. The guests have not one, but two reasons to celebrate and they pull out the stops .. Buffalo weather can be so unpredictable when it comes to shooting wedding outside BUT WE DID IT and we got some fantastic shots!
Lauren and bridal party beautified in Lauren's Salon Elle Aire Buffalo Blow Dry Bar in Williamsville .. Even though she is the bride she couldn't resist the temptation to work and make sure everyones' hair and make up was spectacular. She is such a easy going and sweet person to work with and she looked AMAZING; her hair and dress were jaw-dropping and i was constantly telling myself how beautiful she looked.
After the ceremony we went to the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY. It was freezing cold outside! The bridal party were troopers; the moment they stepped out of the limo into the bone-chilling wind for their reveal, they had a big smiles on their faces and just rolled with the punches.
Then we went to First Niagara Center to take picture on the ice rink! The electronic score board has a personalized sign for the bride and groom. What a nice touch! It was NOT easy to walk on the ice many people kept falling. I was relieved nobody was hurt (but I did get some great shots, LOL).
Right before midnight, everyone poured champagne over the tower of glasses and kissed to ring in the New Year! Lauren and Johnny, thank you for trusting us with your wedding memories! We wouldn't want to spent our New Years any other way than celebrating alongside you and your amazing guests! What a fantastic couple you guys are and I hope your honeymoon in Europe was amazing! Big hugs to you and both and enjoy reliving your day through a few of my favorite photos!
