[gaby and jd]

Back on Mother's day, which was the best one ever, by the way, my family took me out to Letchworth State Park for the day.  We had a picnic of pb&j sandwiches (jelly only for e.) and a giant bag of chee-tos.  We hiked around the park and wandered around the falls.  It was perfect. 
What made it even more exciting was knowing that I would be there again in a few short weeks (armed with my camera and another bag of Chee-tos) to photograph JD and Gaby's wedding.  I ran around like a nut saying "this would be awesome!" and "I wonder if they would go down in the rainy waterfall area?" while my kids fed enormous fish in the pond near  Glen Iris Inn.  

I had met JD a of couple years ago when I photographed his mom Lori's wedding in East Aurora.....Lori had gotten back in touch with me this time to work with her son. I hadn't actually met the couple as "the people I am going to photograph in such an awesome venue" until the day of.    Me = super nervous.  It all worked out perfectly....the bride's family traveled from Ecuador to watch them exchange their vows right in front of the Inn, the sun came out, and I had a second perfect day in Letchworth, while my kids ate all the Chee-tos and hiked with dad.

I loved how JD kept stealing glances at Gaby throughout the ceremony...

and they were totally up for going in the rainy lower falls area....my kind of subjects! (although I do wish I had a plastic bag with me for the camera....)

This guy and his little friend kept sneaking into the reception room....I tried to encourage him to get close to the cake, but no dice.

Afterwards, the two families enjoyed a Sunday brunch, and I went on my way....not bad for a first wedding of the summer. And as I write this, I am definitely craving some hyper orange puffs of corn...
