Congratulations to Luke and Samantha who were married this past weekend at the Zion Lutheran Church with a reception following at Statler City, Buffalo NY.  “Winter is coming” here in Western NY and it was certainly felt by all this day.  Leah and I began by splitting up our morning with the getting readies, before meeting at Glen Park in Williamsville for a First Look.  Samantha wanted to be brave and opted to go without her coat; however, as soon as Luke had seen the dress, the coat was put on!  After, we took some time to walk over to the Falls area for creatives.  I have to say, this was the first time I’ve ever been at Glen Park and there was no one else there.  It was amazing, we literally had the whole place to ourselves!  All too soon, it was time to make our way to the Church for the Ceremony.  From there, we took Samantha and Luke Downtown for more creative time in a more urban setting.  We hit a few spots like the Theater District, City Hall and even got a chance to use the rooftop at the Curtis Hotel (a nice treat for me since I rarely have the opportunity to get in there).  We made it over to the Statler with time to spare as cocktail hour was winding down, and dinner was about to begin.  Soon enough, it was time for the real party to start!  As all the guests got their dancing shoes on, I made my rounds, capturing the craziness that usually comes with weddings.  After a final night shot, I said my goodbyes.  Thank you again to Luke and Samantha for inviting us to be a part of your special day.  Leah and I wish you both all the best for the future!
