It is always exciting to see wonderful things happen for wonderful people. That's how we felt about Daneen and Nate. From the moment we shot their engagement session in the Spring, we could sense the sincere love and respect they have for each other. So we were once again honored to share more of their love story as they exchanged vows on their wedding day.
We started that day by meeting Daneen at Macy's MAC counter at Walden Galleria. She was cool, calm and collected, sitting with her frappuccino and her 'BIG DAY' notebook (this was one organized bride!).
A quick stop at the venue, and then it was on to the ceremony location where Daneen and Nate both were getting ready. Oh, in case you're wondering about the favors below, Nate's official name is Reinardo :)
One of Nate's preparations was taking a quick glimpse at his bride-to-be on his cell phone. We love it, Nate!
Nate and Daneen both looking amazing and both in deep thought in anticipation of seeing each other for the first time that day...
Nate told us he was trying his hardest not to cry as he watched Daneen walk down the aisle towards him. Good job, Nate!
After the ceremony, we headed again to the Buffalo Historical Society side of Delaware Park, just across the lake where we shot their engagement session a few months earlier. The late afternoon summer light was just perfect. Daneen & Nate look so happy and in love here.
We must admit that the bridal party looked handsome as well, lovely ladies and dapper gentlemen.
It wouldn't be right if we left here without getting a few great shots of Daneen and Nate looking absolutely stunning against the details of this historic building.
We absolutely love these shots...
Daneen and Nate had their first dance and somewhere towards the end of 'Someone to Hold' she had to break it down for Nate. It took him a little bit by surprise, but we happen to think he enjoyed it :)
Finally, a little more fun with Daneen and Nate before saying goodnight. What a great end to the perfect day -- and what a great beginning for their new life! Congrats, you two! Best wishes in your marriage together!
