From the time we photographed their Buffalo Botanical Gardens engagement session, we were counting down the months and weeks to Adam and Tracey's Avanti Mansion wedding. As we awakened to rain on this surprisingly cool June morning, we hoped the showers wouldn't dampen the spirit of the bride to be. So how relieved we were to see the joy on Tracey's face as she entered Avanti Mansion's foyer doors! The rainy weather on this June Sunday was not going to take away the shine of her wedding day!
We headed up to the Avanti Mansion bridal suite, where the bride would get ready for the day alongside her bridesmaids, flower girls, and of course her mom. All the details were laid out beautifully, and the mood was nothing but celebratory!
Once again we were happy to have Kelsey Watroba of Kelsey Gene Photography join us as our assistant for this wedding, and we are pleased to feature some of her photos here on the blog. (Thanks Kelsey!)
When Tracey's time had arrived to get into her dress, she had a full team assisting with the lace-up dress, and in the end it was a stunning fit for the bride!
Downstairs, Adam and his gents had already made the quick transformation into tuxedos, ties and top hats.
About this time, the bride's father stepped into the bridal suite to get a glimpse at his daughter. And the waterworks were on from there!
Meanwhile down in the ballroom, the guests were assembled, and Adam was waiting patiently for his bride to be escorted down the aisle. As the ceremony started, the ring bearer got a case of butterflies, which lightened everyone's mood with laughter just prior to the bride making her entrance.
The weather proved to be no match for this handsome newlywed couple and their fabulous bridal party. Rain, what rain? :)
As cocktail hour wrapped up, everyone was eagerly anticipating the introduction of the bride and groom. They made their grand entrance, and were showered with loving words from their best man and best lady.
First dances were in order, and they were just beautiful. From that moment on, the DJ got guests of all ages out on the dance floor!
After gathering the bridal party in the foyer for these last group shots, the bride and groom stepped outside with us for their last couple's photograph of the night.
Tracey and Adam - thanks so much for choosing us to capture your wedding day! We wish you much success in your new life together - and hope you enjoy your images for years to come!
