Editing this wedding was hard for me, because I did not want to get rid of a single shot.
Meredith and Ryan are exactly why I’m in this business. They are incredibly sweet, down-to-earth, creative, and loving people. I think I had just as much fun celebrating with them all as their family and friends, and they did everything in their power to make me feel welcome. That speaks sooo much to their character.
Meredith has been one of my favorite brides to photograph because she is capital-G gorgeous, like drop dead. If you were to combine Cinderella with a 1940s starlet, I think she’s what you’d get. And Ryan is just as amazing. They are a stunning, perfectly-matched couple. Their chemistry is effortless.
This was my second wedding at the Ellicottville Brewing Company, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite venues in Western NY. My heart always beats a little faster in the presence of steel and salvaged lumber, and as you can see, EBC has that going in spades. The ceremony on the brewery floor was so unique and special, officiated by a best friend’s brother. Every detail, down to the flowers (which Meredith did!), was personal and beautiful.
I wish you two darlings nothing but the absolute best and buckets of love, and I thank you and your entire group so much for being as awesome as you were. Special thanks to Marley, Meredith’s equally gorgeous best friend, who stepped up and helped coordinate things with every guest and vendor like a pro. It couldn’t have been a more perfect day if we all tried.
