Hanna & Jake's Botanical Gardens & Pearl St. Grill Wedding | Buffalo NY

Hanna & Jake went back and forth on where to host their wedding ceremony - and I'm so happy they landed on Buffalo's iconic Botanical Gardens! This place is truly a photographer's dream. Inside and out every inch of these gardens offers breathtaking backdrops and scenery!

Their early September ceremony was held outside in the garden while a light mist of rain fell - fortunately for them, rain is good luck on your wedding day! Their closest friends stood by their side, as well as Riddick, their Australian cattle dog and honorary flower pup.

After the ceremony a small cocktail hour was held in the garden while their guests took in all of the beautiful sights and the wedding party, along with Riddick, explored the grounds taking photos.

For their reception, the bride and groom chose another one of my favorite Buffalo venues - Pearl Street Grill & Brewery. Talk about the opposite of the Botanical Gardens! Pearl Street's aesthetic has that dark and moody feel with exposed brick walls, wooden floors and ceilings and rustic, antique accent pieces throughout.

I love that the bride and groom's wedding gallery has this beautiful mix of natural, green backdrops and dark, moody images from their two stunning Buffalo locations!

The vibe of Hanna & Jake's day was so easy going and fun! The rain didn't even phase them - they were so excited to finally be tying the knot! Their reception was full of so many laughs and lots of great dance moves 😎 DJ Tony with Moving Music kept that dance floor full all evening!

Hanna & Jake - a huge congratulations to you and your family!
