Paul & Juliana | Samuels Grande Manor Wedding Photos

   Congratulations to Paul and Juliana who were married this past weekend at St. Mary’s in Swormville, with a reception following at Samuel’s Grande Manor in Williamsville, NY. This wedding marked the start of our 2019 Season, and Leah and I are so excited to share a sneak peak of the special day.  Even with rain showers forecasted for the whole day, Juliana and Paul had nothing but smiles and positive attitudes when we arrived.  You could definitely tell these two were anxious to get the day started and begin celebrating the rest of their lives together.  Leah and I divided up the getting readies, before meeting back up again at the church for the ceremony.  We were in St. Mary’s newer building, which was wonderful and bright, even despite the rain outside.  After a lovely ceremony, we were pleasantly surprised that the rain had stopped, so the entire bridal party made their way over to Glen Falls Park for creatives. Both Paul and Juliana were gracious with the time they gave me, despite the breeze and drizzle, which I secretly love because it forces Couples to cuddle even closer.  I’m not too sadistic, though, and before too long we made our way to Samuel’s for the reception. 

   The venue was recently renovated, with a clean gray motif throughout. After the First Dances, a lovely gesture from Paul and Juliana was to invite both their sets of parents onto the dance floor.  It’s a strange coincidence, but both their parents had the same First Dance song at their weddings.  It made for a beautiful moment that really captured the melding of these two families. Then it was time to get the party started!  I steal Paul and Juliana away from the festivities a couple more times for photos, but all too soon it was time to say our goodbyes.  Thank you again to Paul and Juliana for inviting us to be a part of your special day.  We wish you all the best for the future!
