What a whirlwind this day was! On Camille's family's sprawling estate, they designed an elaborate celebration for all their friends and family to witness. Everything DIY, with Camille being the mastermind behind a lot of it herself. The decorations, the jewelry, the desserts, her mother even crocheted her gorgeous top. They truly outdid themselves. The coming together of Kevin & Camille was one that seemed natural and easy. Camille, full of life and vigor bopping around making sure the tables were set while cracking jokes and Kevin relaxing with his friends beforehand, these two knew their day was about each other and not stressing. Their fun loving ease showed all the way through the evening with a live band, drinks on deck and a coming together of their closest loved ones. I am so honored to have been the one to capture these two become one and could not be more happy for them! A "Wyse" choice indeed!
I have been hearing about the plans, the ideas, the proposal before there was even a ring involved with these two. I had the pleasure of meeting Taylor when we both worked at Second Chic, a consignment shoppe together a few years ago and we hit it off immediately. Over the years, I have heard all about Shawn. Specifically how he has always been "the one". I mean, this girl has been day dreaming about this proposal I'm sure long before Shawn had even known he was going to do it! Eventually he finally did propose, right in Yosemite Park like someone truly after Tay's heart. Fast forward a year later and I had the absolute honor and pleasure of photographing this meticulously planned union by the ever stylish Taylor Baudendistle herself. No one knows aesthetics like this girl, see for yourself! Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Field!
These two threw a wedding of a lifetime! With a pre-ceremony the day before at the beautiful St. Louis church in downtown Buffalo, Dan & Ashley pledged their love to one another in front of an intimate group of friends and family. Saturday was the day of the big festivities which all took place at the Hotel Henry. As a former Asylum for the insane which closed its doors forever in the 70's, this immaculate building was brought back to life in more ways than one last year. I had been dying to book a couple within these magnificent walls and not only did I, but Ashley is one of the kindest bride's I've had the pleasure of working with. I have spent years in the park connected with this venue with my dog Otto, laying in the grass admiring this architectural beauty to finally get to photograph the inside. I was over the moon! The ceremony took place right on the front steps, short and sweet. The night kicked off with many of group dances, light up glasses and a live band. I can honestly say I have never had a better meal than I had at their wedding! What might have been the best and a first for me, was when Chewbacca came to surprise Ashley out on the dance floor (pictured below). An overall beautiful and hilarious day and I couldn't be happier to have been a part of it.
