Congratulations to Angela and Craig who married this past weekend at Samuel’s Grand Manor, Williamsville, NY.  Leah and I had the pleasure of working with Angela’s sister, Gina, for her Wedding last year.  It was great to meet up again with all their family and friends for another very special day.  For those of you that follow our blogs, the girls’ getting ready might seem familiar.  We began our day at Angela’s parent’s house with the girls.  Leah stayed to do the details, while I went over to Craig’s parent’s house to be with the guys.  Much to his mother’s dismay, I loved the look of their back shed (that Craig’s father built), and gave the guys a chance to play with the tools for a bit.

After, I made my way back to Angela and got her into her dress.  The limo arrived, and we all pilled in to make the short trip to Clarence Town Park for a First Look.  As always here in WNY during the summer, it was hot and humid (although not as bad as last year for Gina’s wedding).  I did my best to keep everyone in the shade, and the whole wedding party was wonderful and attentive.  We actually finished ahead of schedule, and moved on to Samuel’s to make final preps for the ceremony and reception.

At Samuel’s, the rest of the family was already gathered for formals before the ceremony.  It really is so great when we can get all the main photographs out of the way early, so the Couple has time to enjoy and mingle with guests during cocktail hour.  After, dinner was served, and it was finally time to get the real party started!  We saw first-hand last year how crazy Craig can get during parties, and it wasn’t long before the shirt came off.  I took them one more time for a night shot with the front fountain, and then we said our goodbyes.  Thank you again to Angela and Craig and all their family for inviting us to spend this special day with you all.  We wish you all the best for the future!
