It was a long time coming for this 2020 wedding that was rescheduled due to Covid. I think everyone would agree, it was well worth the wait!
Krissy and Brian had such an incredible day. The girls started the day getting ready at Krissy's parents home. Hair and makeup came right to them and had everyone looking amazing. The bridesmaids wore different styled floor length gowns in pale blush. Krissy chose a romantic, form fitting Essense of Australia wedding gown from Bliss Bridal. She was a dream in this sexy dress with French lace and an open back! So gorgeous, her friends kept calling her Barbie! Krissy and her dad had the sweetest daddy daughter first look and her bridesmaids gifted her a beautiful memory book and the last page was a handwritten not from Brian. It was really so sweet, she teared up reading it. Brian and the guys got ready at his house. They looked great in their navy suits from Men's Wearhouse.
Krissy and Brian were wed in a traditional Catholic ceremony at St Christopher Church in Tonawanda, NY. It was a love filled ceremony and you could see the joy in their faces! After the ceremony, they had a bubble exit from the church and we did a few family photos outdoors. The bridal party took the limo bus over to Tifft Nature Preserve for some more photos and it was off to 500 Pearl for the real party. The reception took place in the Forbes Theater. It was beautiful. Every detail was carefully selected and had a touch of Buffalove. Flowers by Johnny created gorgeous arrangements of hydrangeas and white and blush roses that complimented the girls bouquets perfectly.
The speeches and dancing were the main events at this wedding. We knew it was going to be fun! We heard thoughtful and witty sentiments from the matrons of honor, the best man and a surprise speech from the groom's sisters. Everyone was laughing at the funny stories and smiling warmly while listening to shared memories. Krissy and Brian are so loved. After the speeches, we witnessed all of the sweet first dances. Brian literally swept Krissy off her feet and dipped her at the end of their first dance which was met with many whoops and cheers. Once dinner was completed, Shine Band started playing and everyone was on the dance floor. I don't know if I have ever shared so many dance pictures but this crew knows how to have a good time. Guests were dancing and singing, doing the worm, limbo, the Dirty Dancing lift...you name it..it was awesome! Everyone had the best time!
Congratulations to the new Mr. + Mrs. Sultana! We are so happy for the two of you. You and your family and friends are so warm and kind. We felt so honored to be a part of your amazing day.
Thank you to this wonderful team of vendors who helped make the day perfect!
