Delaware Park, Karpeles Manuscript Library & Barrel Factory Wedding in Buffalo, NY

Emily and Chris celebrated their wedding in some of Buffalo, NY’s oldest buildings that also serve as some of our newest wedding venues, Karpeles Manuscript Library and the Barrel Factory! We also made stops for portraits at Hertel Avenue’s Gord Downey mural and Delaware Park where the couple also had their “first look” in front of the Ivy Bridge and family photos taken in front of the Albright Knox Art Gallery near Hoyt Lake!

Before we get to all that, let’s start at the beginning. I began the day with Emily and her sisters at the Embassy Suites in downtown Buffalo while second shooter Steve hung out with Chris and his groomsmen (and their perfect pup Dougie) at the couples home.

Dougie.

The Ivy Bridge in Buffalo’s Delaware Park is the perfect location for a first look! I love the mystery of Emily in the shadows as she’s about to make her appearance!

Isn’t this bouquet from Chickory Kin perfection? I love the way the edges are left looking organic and wild.
