Kara & Scott’s wedding kicked off my 2015 wedding season. Kara started her day in the bridal suite at the Hotel Lafayette in Buffalo. The ceremony was held at St. Rose of Lima Church in North Buffalo. Due to weather and not wanting to ruin a fabulous pair of Jimmy Choo’s we opted to head back to the Lafayette Hotel for pictures before the reception in the Marquis Ballroom.
Kara & Scott are from Buffalo but have relocated to NYC. The Maid of Honor (her sister) and Best Man (best friend) both told stories of how they met when they were 13 years old! How cute is that? Who gets to tell their love story and have it start at 13 years old.
It’s hard to see on the blog but Scott’s Facebook update said: “Today I marry the girl I chased when I was 13 years old. Finally caught her.”
The look above (in the B&W shot) is Kara’s priceless reaction to someone stepping on her veil. ;)
I can’t make up my mind. Do you like this better in color or in the warm toned Black & White?
The Marquis Ballroom run by Acqua at the Hotel Lafayette is one of my favorite rooms to work in. The room is so light and warm, it photographs beautifully.
I’ve photographed this room so many times but I don’t know if I’ve ever seen it with Blue uplighting, I like it.
