Mike & Lisa | Foundry Suites Fall Wedding Photos

   Congratulations to Mike and Lisa who married this weekend at Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum, with a reception following at The Foundry Suites, Buffalo, NY.  I first worked with this wonderful Couple earlier in the year for their engagement session.  At the time, we joked about the cold weather, and how it might just be an omen for their Wedding Day.  Fast forward seven months…. and yes, it was cold.  But, what else can you expect in November in Buffalo, NY?

   Leah and I began our day with the getting readies at The Foundry Suites.  Mike and Lisa made the last-minute decision to do all the morning activities in one location, and it was probably the best change they could have made.  Hair and make-up ran a bit late, but since there was no travel for the First Look, adjusting the timeline was easy.  The Courtyard at The Foundry is beautiful this time of year, and in the afternoon, it was a perfect, private location for Mike and Lisa to see each other for the first time.  I think they were both a bit nervous about the day, but as soon as they were together, nothing else mattered.  

   All too soon for my liking, it was time to move on with our day.  We grabbed the Bridal Party for some creatives at the nearby Japanese Gardens, then headed off to Karpeles for the ceremony.  For anyone reading this please note:  if you’re getting married at Karpeles, there are two locations – Porter Hall and North Hall.  Please tell your guests this so they don’t go to the wrong wedding.  Leah was stopped at ours right before Lisa walked down the aisle by a couple of girls asking if this was their friends’ wedding…. It wasn’t, and they had to run out quickly.  It’s not the first time we’ve encountered this situation with Karpeles.

   After a lovely ceremony, we all headed back to The Foundry for the reception.  Our night unfolded with Leah and I making our rounds of the dance floor, then we said our goodbyes.  Thank you again to Mike and Lisa for inviting us to be a part of your special day.  We wish you both all the best for the future!
