I have really enjoyed getting to know Mike and Fallon over the last couple of years. What’s better than doing engagement pictures before their wedding day? Doing engagement pictures twice! Fallon won a little giveaway I hosted to test out a new camera… and THEN, we got to do the real deal engagement photos the following spring. Check out their proud Buffalo landmark engagement session here. (Their dog Spot is super cute, so you don’t want to miss that session!)
Speaking of Buffalo… Mike & Fallon fully embraced their Buffalo pride in their wedding decor with bison all over. But make it classy! ;) See if you can spot all the different ways a buffalo made it into their wedding day. Fallon has such an eye for decoration and pulled off the most beautiful reception space!
This wedding venue was a perfect downtown Buffalo location with easy access to Lafayette Square for pictures of City Hall. Plus, it’s walkable to the Main Street Theater District for the classic Shea’s sign in the background! 500 Pearl is a newer wedding venue complete with a fantastic hotel up top, ceremony space, bar for cocktail hour, and bowling in the basement! The reception space is in an old theater, the ceremony was up in the balcony for the theater! How cool is that!?
One of the coolest parts of our day though… the views! The corner hotel suite had windows galore! The views were phenomenal. It even had a balcony. At sunset, we went up to Patrick’s Rooftop Bar (open to the public, check it out sometime) and security gave us a private escort to an area not open to the public… a totally empty and wide open roof with beautiful views of our city and Lake Erie! This day reminded me how cool Buffalo really is!
Mike and Fallon, thank you for choosing me to be a part of your wedding day. It has been a joy getting to know you both and celebrate with you along your journey. I hope these photos allow you to relive your beautiful day over and over! Congratulations!
Congratulations Mike & Fallon!
