Monica and Joshua are one sparkling couple who had an amazing wedding from start to finish. First off, that knot was tied in a dreamy ceremony at St. Louis Catholic Church in downtown Buffalo. The architecture in this 19th century church is absolutely breathtaking. The church was rebuilt in 1889 after a fire destroyed the original Cathedral. That may have been a tragic moment in the church’s history, but I’ll tell you, you could feel nothing but the fires of true love in that sanctuary on this special day! After the ceremony’s benediction, the bridal party made their way to the waterfront where we captured some of the couple’s very first photos as husband and wife. We sure got some amazing shots of the bride and her girls, and of course many fun shots with the groom and the groomsmen, all 9 of them! The reception was elegant and classy held at the historic venue Marcy’s Casino near Delaware Park. The graceful, recently restored building is one of only two existing buildings left from the 1906 Buffalo Pan Am exhibition. At the same time as the reception, Shakespeare in the Park was being performed just outside the reception hall which added a distinctly memorable flourish of drama and whimsy. The food was sumptuous, and let me tell you, the bridal party really partied down! Monica and Joshua should be super proud of such fantastic success throwing one heck of a party to remember!
