Introducing Sam and Erin Hackenberg at Clarence Presbyterian Church and Samuel’s Grande Manor

Sam and Erin had a beautiful, unseasonably warm day for their December wedding.  The wedding ceremony was held at Clarence Presbyterian Church and their reception was just down the street at Samuel’s Grande Manor.  
These first four images were taken during their “first look.”  I just love the raw emotion here!

Then, we moved over to this trellis-covered walkway to take advantage of autumn’s beautiful afternoon light.

The gang’s all here!

Erin and her dad’s anticipated entrance into the ceremony:

Husband and wife!

In the foyer in front of the Christmas tree:

This is likely the most beautiful photo I’ve ever taken of a church building, complete with the colorful sunset and lit Christmas tree in the window.

They had Buffalo’s famous Paula’s Donuts in place of a wedding cake.  And, the guests took some home as a favor.  I’m pretty sure no-one was disappointed.  😉

They made a neat canvas with their wedding date and name on it for guest to sign as a “guest book.”  Great idea!!

And, then, finally, their first dance as husband and wife.

Sam and Erin, we want to say a huge “THANK YOU!!” for giving us the privilege of capturing your memories!!  We loved it.  And pray that you look back on this day as the day you loved each other the least.  May God bless you and your marriage greatly!!
