Family Wedding Weekends

Dan’s brother got married back in the beginning of June, with just a small intimate ceremony for just the immediate family followed by a dinner at a local downtown restaurant. It was a really nice day and it was actually really awesome to split the ceremony and reception up. Just this past weekend they hosted a big reception with all their friends and extended family, but it took so much pressure off the wedding day!

Back in June they got married right in downtown Buffalo, along the riverside under a beautiful gazebo. The weather was perfect everything was so simple and classy!

Just this past weekend was the big reception, which was a lot of fun! It was nice to not have to worry about wedding stuff all day and then just go to the party at night! We brought Ada with us for a little bit. She stayed through dinner and then I dropped her off at my parents house for a sleepover. She couldn’t wait to dance at the wedding, but once the dancing started she thought it was too loud and I think she got a little concerned with why all the grown ups were acting so crazy on the dance floor! If there’s one thing that goes down at family weddings its a crazy dance floor!! (and a lot of drinking, which is why I got her out of there!) I also must not have taken very many pictures at the reception, which isn’t like me at all, but here are a few! Also, the lighting is terrible!

So a big congratulations to my Brother-in-law and my newest Sister! Everything was so special and we were thrilled to have celebrated! We wish them a lifetime of happiness, love and maybe some babies sometime soon!

Baby Savannah {Newborn Pictures}

I was pretty excited my sister trusted me enough to take newborn pictures of my new niece Savannah and while they aren’t as good as a pro, I thought I did a decent job getting some beautiful pictures! It was a lot of fun playing with her for the afternoon and she did so good, she slept for most of it and was awake for some so we got some pictures of both. We had to stop to feed her once at the beginning, but otherwise Savannah was a little doll. Right up until the end when she pooed all over my fur blanket. Still not really sure how I’m going to get that one clean! Here are a few of the finished edits I did! Enjoy!

Summer Photo Shoot

Earlier this summer we won a free photo session with Shannon Glurich Photography . I was so excited about this for two reasons, I really wanted to do summer photos but Dan didn’t want to pay for them and I never win anything! We had the most perfect evening ever down at Beaver Island State Park. We did it before sun set and the light was amazing. Here are a few of my favorite shots! Thank you Shannon for the great family pictures!

Fall at Canalside and lots of photos

Just a short post and a ton of photos from this past weekend. We are still trying to soak in as much fall fun as we can before the weather turns bad, which around here could be anytime now. Canalside Buffalo put on a pretty awesome Fall Fest last weekend, so we went down and let Ada enjoy more pumpkins and some other fun things. We went with her friend Abby, and the girls had so much fun running around and riding the carousel. Another fun weekend!!

We also had a family photo shoot done at the park and I made Dan stick around after we were done so that I could snap a few. We then spent the rest of our day playing in the leaves!

Ada’s first Easter & a photo shoot

I’m a little behind on posting these, but Ada had a great first Easter, she got her first Easter basket, which I am obsessed with,  I found it here on Etsy, and had fun pulling out all the stuff. She just got some little things this year, since she doesn’t know the difference. But I had fun putting something together for her anyway.

In her basket she got an Easter book, the Sesame Street cell phone, some little bunny socks, a little bunny onesie and a sippy cup (that she won’t be using for awhile still)

We had our first wedding of the year at the end of May, which was for one of my closest friends from High School, so it was a ton of fun to have so much of our gang all in town and back together. It was also Ada’s first wedding. We just brought her to the ceremony and to the middle party, then she got dropped off at Nana  and Grandpa’s house so we could go to the reception.
