Amber and Zach planned the most amazing East Aurora, NY wedding!! There entire day took place in this sweet little town that they live in and love! Amber and her bridal party spent the morning getting ready at The Roycroft Inn, while Zach and his groomsmen spent their morning at The GreyStone XXX1. Both of these locations were just blocks from each other, so I was able to capture both the girls getting ready, and the guys!
Their amazing wedding ceremony took place right on Main Street at Baker Memorial United Methodist Church. This historic church was beautifully light by candles lining the center isle, giving it such a timeless feel. As their guests arrived, they were handed wooden fans before being escorted to their seats. Watching Amber walk down the isle was one of the most beautiful moments I’ve ever captured. The joy on Zach’s face as he saw his beautiful bride walk towards him, and the love that was pouring out from their loving family and friends that filled the church, made this such a special moment.
Following their ceremony, the guests exited the church, to find a New Orleans Style Jazz Band playing live, right there on Main Street!! The band then led an on-foot processional through the streets of East Aurora, taking Amber, Zach and their guest to the wedding reception location a couple blocks away at The Roycroft. What a totally unique experience this was!! I’m smiling right now just thinking about how fun it was to experience and capture!
Their guests were then greeted at The Roycroft with an extended cocktail hour that included amazing drinks, food AND another live band! I used some of this time to capture portraits of the wedding party, and of Amber and Zach privately. Following the cocktail hour, the wedding party was introduced, and Amber and Zach were welcomed into their reception as the live band played the song, “I Can’t Help Falling In Love” for their first dance as a married couple! Just look at the photos of their first dance, I honestly can’t get over it. SO MUCH JOY and HAPPINESS on their faces during this moment. I’m sure there wasn’t a dry eye in the room, it was truly an incredibly moving first dance.
I could honestly go on and on about how amazing this wedding day was, it was obvious that so much love was put into the planning off this unique day, but I will let the photos tell the story of their day!! Enjoy!!
Congratulations Amber and Zach!! Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness and adventure, together!!
