Congratulations to AJ and Meredith who were married this weekend at North Hall – Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum, with a reception following at the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site, Buffalo, NY.  I began this rainy, autumn day with the getting readies at the Inn Buffalo Off Elmwood, a historic mansion undergoing preservation in the heart of the Elmwood Village.  I decided to try and take full advantage of the gorgeous rooms throughout the house, since going outside was hit or miss with the rain.  After our First Look, we took a quick trip over to AJ’s parents house for a special gift.  They presented him and Meredith with “Courage” Pins, for whenever they might need them as they embark on their new adventure together.  The story of the family “Courage” Pins goes back to when AJ and his brother were young, and I think it’s very touching that it was resurrected for this occasion and they can now carry on the tradition with their families. The Japanese Gardens was our next destination for some creatives, along with a quick stop at the vacant lot (formerly an apartment building) where AJ and Meredith met.  Next up, the Ceremony at North Hall.  I’d say the highlight was the reading of selected love notes that AJ and Meredith exchanged during their years of dating.  It’s the first time I’ve seen this done and I really felt it invited me into the journey they’ve been on together.  After, we all made our way over to the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site, which was a very fitting location for both AJ and Meredith since they love the outdoors and National Parks (and where better to celebrate than the site where the man responsible for the national park system was first inaugurated).  Dinner and dancing ensued.  As evening closed in around us, I took the happy Couple outside for one more night shot.  All too soon, I said my goodbyes.  Thank you again to AJ and Meredith for inviting me to be a part of their special day.  I wish you both all the best!
