Jeff & Stephanie | Grapevine Banquet Wedding

   Congratulations to Jeff and Stephanie who married this weekend at Queen of Martyrs church, with a reception following at The Grapevine Banquets, Depew, NY.  I had the pleasure of working with this wonderful Couple last year for their engagement session.  They are both genuine and loving people, and I looked forward to celebrating this day with them.  Leah and I began our morning covering the getting readies.  Both Jeff and Stephanie were nervous in their own ways, and I had a feeling that emotions would be running high as soon as they saw each other in Church.  

   After we spent some time with Stephanie getting into the dress and doing portraits, it was time for the big reveal.  As she walked down the aisle, Jeff’s love was evident.  When the Ceremony was over, we took the whole Bridal Party over to Como Lake Park for some creatives.  The wind was kind of ridiculous this day, which presented its own set of difficulties, but we managed and everyone were good sports about it.  Soon enough, it was time to make our way over to The Grapevine for the party.  To continue the crying theme, the Best Man (Jeff’s brother) and Maid of Honor (Steph’s sister), pulled out all the stops.  Even the Bridal Party was a mess!  As dinner was served, I took Jeff and Stephanie outside for a beautiful sunset.  I haven’t been so lucky with getting a true sunset in the past when I photographed at this venue, so this day was an exception.  Dancing ensued, and all too soon, it was time for us to say our goodbyes.  Thank you again to Jeff and Stephanie for inviting us to be a part of your special day.  We wish you all the best for the future!
