Corey & Katie | Elegant Country Style Wedding WNY

Wedding Photographer Buffalo NY | AlekseyK

   Elegant Country Style Weddings in Western, NY are a beautiful affair, and I would like to congratulate newlyweds Katie and Corey and thank them for a truly elegant and classy day. I started my day in Ellicottville, NY with Katie’s getting ready. The hotel suite was the perfect space for clean, uncluttered images. There was plenty of room to move about and a spacious wood/brick balcony. From getting ready we drove the short distance to Franklinville, NY to the family country cabin for the ceremony and reception. It was clear from the moment we arrived that the whole family really chipped in to make this a special day for the Couple. Aside from the general order of things (which included an air conditioned porta potty trailer called Porta Lisa), they even mowed a back pasture down so we could use the space for photographs!

First Look

   Katie and Corey wanted a First Look (something we highly recommend for all Couples). The direct sunlight forced us to modify the initial plan of using the ceremony site, but the visible love and emotion from both Katie and Corey was all we needed. In the end, the location of the first look really didn’t matter. Next, we walked/hiked our way around the property for Creatives. The whole bridal party were great sports. I’m very thankful Katie chose flats for her Girls to walk in (nothing’s worse than wanting so badly to get some really creative images, and having to hear how much someone’s feet hurt for hours on end). Other Brides….Take Note!

   After a truly beautiful/emotional ceremony, it was time to sit down and PARTY! True to form, even the reception was laid back and family oriented. As the sun began to set, I stole the Bride and Groom for one more stunning sunset photograph. It was nice to step away from the general party for a few a minutes of alone time. Nothing but the sky and the love of a happy Couple. As another weekend comes to an end, thank you again to Katie and Corey for inviting me to take part in their special day.
