Claire + Justin
Welcome to the highlights of Claire and Justin’s Tifft Nature Preserve and Rich’s Atrium wedding here in Buffalo! This sweet couple was easy breezy to work with, we had such a great time documenting their wedding from start to finish!
I began the day with Claire at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Buffalo. They had an incredible top floor room with views for miles and a bathtub with some of the prettiest clean white light I’ve seen. Yes, you can scroll down to see pictures of Claire with the tub, because it was just that pretty! But first, Claire’s details along with this adorable custom pennant from Oxford Pennant here in Buffalo!
Meanwhile, my lovely assistant for the day, Jenny, spent some time with Justin and the groomsmen at his family’s beautiful Parkside neighborhood home where they got ready.
2018 was the year for sunny and hot outdoor wedding ceremonies, and Claire and Justin’s day was no exception! Guests gathered (most under the share of a nearby tree) at Tifft Nature Preserve for a heartfelt ceremony next to a beautiful pond in the preserve.
Hot days like these sometimes mean rings don’t slide on exactly as expected…
After Tifft, we headed over to Hoyt Lake at Delaware Park, a place Claire, Justin and their friends spent a lot of their time when they lived in Buffalo. I think it’s SO nice when couples are able to incorporate locations that are personal to them into their wedding photos. It makes them all the more meaningful!
On to nearby Rich’s Atrium in Buffalo for the wedding reception!
Williams Florist went all in on the greens for these tall centerpieces. I always say, if you’re going big, you need to go high so guests can see each other across the table, but they really took it to the next level!
Cocktail hour surrounding Rich’s massive double sided fireplace is always a hit with guests!
Many thanks to Claire and Justin for having us document your day! And thank you to all these venues and vendors who helped make the day so great!
