This stunning wedding was the perfect mix of laid back and fun. Courtney is possibly the most relaxed bride I've ever seen. This couple of many years were all about having fun and making sure their wedding party and guests had a good time. The bride's simple yet elegant dress was from Essence of Australia and she paired it with comfortable flats. Her gown was a beautiful silhouette with subtle button detailing down the train from the plunging back. The look was completed with gorgeous old Hollywood glam hair created by the very talented, Alyssa O'Mara. Hair and makeup for the lovely bride and her bridesmaids was by the amazing Jaime Ruggiero. Courtney chose understated earrings and a simple drop necklace from Lord & Taylor to compliment her wedding gown and cathedral length veil by Bel Aire Bridal. The bridesmaids each chose their own dresses to match the sparkling champagne colored dresses Courtney's two sisters selected from Nordstrom. Several of their gorgeous dresses were by designer Adrianna Papell, including one breathtaking maternity gown!
This was one great party that started with a pre-cocktail party after the ceremony at Riverfest Park. The cocktail hour and reception were held at the Buffalo staple, Pearl Street Grill and Brewery. The third floor was decorated beautifully with lanterns and florals by Maureen's Wholesale Flowers and each table setting was completed with personalized coozies from the bride and groom. After cutting the cake from the three tiered rustic cupcake display and both hilarious and heartfelt speeches from the maid of honor and best man, the party resumed. The bride and groom laughed through their first dance as Justin spun Courtney around the dance floor in front of all of their closest family and friends. Jeff from Toy Bros had everyone on the dance floor on night long and even had everyone singing along to the bride's special request of Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas". Who doesn't love to belt out that one?! Andy Morin, captured the whole day by video and even had the drone working, can't wait to see the video!
Below are some of my favorites from this very special day. Thank you so much to Gabby Miklos for being my second shooter, for your gorgeous images and for pinning on every groomsman's boutineer! Lol. Congratulations to Court and Biz! I hope the two of you enjoy so much happiness in your next chapter!!!
