One of the most amazing parts of our job is getting to witness such sweet and personal moments, like this one with Jill and her parents. Her mother gave her a beautiful gift, and she and Dad shared an emotional first look!
Best bridesmaids reactions!
One of my favorite moments of the entire day was when Jill finished getting dressed and squealed “I’ve never felt so beautiful!!!” She was stunning! Meanwhile, Steve was capturing the boys getting ready at the Saturn Club. Love these shots!
“Our favorite moment was right after the ceremony! This was the first time we were able to take a moment together by ourselves to reflect on what just happened, giggling at the fact that we could now could call each other husband & wife! And then hopping on our limo bus to be greeted by the entire wedding party who were all so genuinely happy and full of excitement! All we could think about was how everything at that moment was perfect. It was a great start to the celebration!” – Jill
“I was so excited about the reception at the Statler – to celebrate with friends and family and see how everything in the Golden Ballroom would be pulled together after all of the planning! Dan was excited for the ‘Shout’ song with the Buffalo Bills ending – being the ultimate Bills fan that he is, he knew it would be a great moment with everyone on the dance floor!” – Jill
Loved this moment when all four parents huddled together & cheered! How fun!
After some sweet moments on the dance floor, all the guests jumped up to join the fun! Toy Bros kept the party going, and a wild dance-off took over!
Jill and Dan were so sweet, from our first meeting, throughout the very last shot of the night. We loved working with them! I asked Jill what advice she had for other brides, and she gave some great tips!
“We kept Excel spreadsheets to keep us on track of all vendors, payments, ‘what to do next’ timelines, addresses, RSVP’s, etc. It was really helpful to have these to refer to while planning to not only stay on track but stay on budget and plan accordingly. This really helped us become less stressed as the day quickly approached! Overall though, remember that you guys are a team. So enjoy all the little appointments together, listen to each other’s inputs and try not to sweat the small stuff! Once the day finally comes, nothing matters more than the person standing beside you. You’ll instantly forget about all the stresses that comes with planning a wedding and become wrapped up in your own little world as husband and wife – as it should be!”
