buffalo wedding ceremony and reception at lockport locks

We have captured so many memories for Jaclyn and Darryl! We have so much fun with them. Their journey started when they came to Neal Urban Studio to discuss destination photography for their wedding!

They wanted us to go to Antigua to photograph them during their honeymoon! We were so honored. Then we asked where their ceremony was taking place. It was going to be at the Lockport Locks in Lockport, NY. Both the ceremony and reception were going to be there. We put together a custom package for them to include coverage of the wedding day here as well. 

This image was taken right after the ceremony at the Locks. The bride and groom had such an amazing connection and relationship. There was so much joy and happiness. They never looked stressed. They always had smiles on their faces. That's how it should be. 

I was actually supposed to be the only one photographing the wedding here. There was no getting ready photos, and we were not leaving the venue. But, I surprised the couple and brought Neal to assist me. We thought it was best so we could get to know their personalities better before jetting off to Antigua with them. Jaclyn and Darryl were so happy! We all became amazing friends and still see each other often!

We loved the simplicity of colors and ideas they used for their wedding. They are super outdoorsy. Almost all the details were handmade. They had their ceremony in front of a wooden pergola. We loved the contrast of colors in this image with the bouquet and alter. I love that little orange flower in the back ground. Their expressions are timeless!

We went on to photograph this amazing couple for three days in Antigua. We planned multiple photo sessions, but did not intrude or take over their trip!  We ended up designing two wedding albums for them and two five piece wall art collections for their new home! To many more memories with this bride and groom!
