Tommy & Mel: The Wedding

After a fabulous engagement session with Mel & Tommy, we couldn't wait to see how they would top all that sophistication. Well they did not disappoint! The wedding day was the perfect blend of laughter, love, fun, fashion, and excitement! Like a high-energy rollercoaster...OK, you get the gist.

We started the day with Tommy and his groomsmen getting ready at the Embassy Suites in Downtown Buffalo, NY, as they kept their eye on the football game, of course...

Next, we were off to catch up with the bride and her ladies a few floors down.

After the "final" final touches, Mel was ready to get in her dress. It was so great that her mom - in a coordinating shade of green - was there and ready to zip her up, as her bridesmaids looked on with excitement.Work it, Mel!Before heading to the ceremony, we stopped at Pearl Street Grill to get a glimpse of the reception venue, which looked almost as good as the bridal party - very close second! :)

At the ceremony, Tommy saw his beautiful bride for the first time that day.

Looks like all Tommy's nervousness vanished after the vows...Tommy, are you giving somebody a pound?

Since the reception was downtown, we headed that direction, stopping at Main Street first near Shea's. Someone even screamed out 'congratulations' from the train passing by.

One serious shot...OK, now one silly!LOVE the socks, guys!Next, we headed to Canalside to get a few more shots before heading to the reception.

Now on to the party on the 4th floor...

From the time they entered the door, Mel and Tommy were ready to get their dance on!Ever seen a bridal party enjoy dinner music so much?

After Mel and Tommy cut the cake and had their first dance, it was all about the mamas. Tommy danced with his mom, and Mel danced with hers. Not a dry eye in the place when that was over.

Did we mention this party was all about the dancing - compliments of DJ LoPro!

Oh yes, if there was one priority for Mel and Tommy that night, it was definitely to DANCE. At some point we asked about a few more shots and were quickly shot down in favor of the DJ. And we can't blame them - he was jamming so hard we were tempted to put down the camera and just dance ourselves...

Mel even changed into her party dress so she could get her groove on, and Tommy...well all he needed was to take off his jacket and he was READY!Mel and Tommy, congratulations on your wedding day! We hope the beat plays on for you two forever!
