Jeff & Sahar | Statler City Wedding Buffalo NY

   Congratulations to Jeff and Sahar who married this weekend at Statler City, Buffalo, NY.   What a wonderful way to cap off a double weekend for Leah and I.  Statler is one of my favorite venues and we were so blessed to spend nearly the entire day there.

   We started not far away at the Curtiss Hotel.  This is another beautiful old building in downtown Buffalo, with its own unique look and charm.  Beginning with Jeff and the guys, we then kicked them out to spend time at the rooftop bar while Sahar and the girls got ready in the same room.  After slipping into her dress and taking some portraits, it was time for the First Look.  We chose the staircase and side hall in the lobby which, surprisingly, was very quiet and intimate.

   After the First Look, we took the whole bridal party for a short walk to The Statler, stopping along the way for some pics too.  Once inside, I took advantage of my free rein access to play around a bit with the different rooms.  It’s rare that I’m here for both the Ceremony and Reception, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.  The red room off the Georgia Room had some amazing cinematic light.  This is definitely an area that’s underutilized and I’ll be back as soon as I can!

   A lovely ceremony followed, then it was time to get the party started in the Terrace Room.  For anyone reading, if you have a choice of reception locations, this should be high on your list.  It can get a bit dark, but the space it affords and grandeur is worth that small concession.  We capped off the evening with dancing and said our goodbyes.  Thank you again to Jeff and Sahar for inviting us to spend this special day with you.  We wish you all the best for the future!
