Buffalo NY Wedding Photographer Becca Sutherland Photography’s work of a gorgeous wedding ceremony and reception at Ellicottville Brewing Company, in Ellicottville NY (just south of Buffalo, NY).
I was so excited to photograph this wedding! I'm starting the year off on top of things, and although I have quite a few weddings left from last year to blog, I wanted to get Brooke + Dan's quiet affair up quickly. I absolutely love photographing intimate wedding ceremonies and elopements. Dan and Brooke knew exactly what was important to them on their wedding day, and decided to forego a huge event in order to celebrate two families becoming one with those that meant the most to them. I adored how they included Dan's daughters in the wedding ceremony, and loved that all their siblings were part of their wedding party.
It was a pretty dreary, slightly rainy, slightly cold, typical spring Buffalo day. We did outdoor portraits in record time, to keep kids (and adults!) from freezing too much, but I was amazed at how tough everyone was! There was minimal complaining, and I am so thankful for bridesmaids and groomsmen that are this understanding in less than optimal conditions!
Brooke, Dan and I did the rest of their portraits at InnBuffalo - which is the most elegant historic Inn I have ever seen. The entire place is full of history and gorgeousness. Carved wooden walls, beautiful sitting rooms, stained glass windows... If you need a place to stay in Buffalo, you should definitely check it out!
I met up with Kali + Todd in Ellicottville a couple weekends ago for their engagement portrait session. It's been a pretty mild and warm winter lately, so it's hard to remember how bitterly freezing cold this day was... Kali and Todd are from farther south originally, but have moved to this area recently and wanted to highlight WNY's winter weather. I think they handled the cold better than I did! I couldn't even tell that they were freezing or their fingers were ready to fall off (Or was that just mine?). They were experts at dodging skiers as we played a game of frogger across the ski hill, and were so super fun that it was hard for me to choose what pictures to show here!
