Are you worried about rain on your wedding day? This is definitely something you would want to think about, especially here in Buffalo. Among the many partial-outdoor venues, The Terrace is a true contender with its array of formal portrait locations and up-scale reception options! The Terrace at Delaware Park- An ideal wedding venue rain or shine.
There is something so magical about documenting one of the most important days of someone’s life. Watching all of the love unfold throughout the day isn’t something I can put into words easily. Alexander and Samantha had a genuinely deep-rooted love for each other and it really showed the more I photographed them!
Getting ready photos were taken at The Westin Buffalo, a luxury downtown hotel. Samantha surprised her bridesmaids with awesome bedazzled jean jackets, and let me say it got loud for a second there! Getting ready photos are probably one of my favorite things to photograph, not only do I just love detail shots but I also love watching the emotions that evolve through this time as everyone eagerly awaits the day.
Formal portraits took place at The Buffalo History Museum located on the Northwest corner of Delaware Park. This is such a great location to get a variety of backdrops. Of course, if rain is in the forecast there are plenty of options to escape the rain and that’s exactly what we ended up doing here. Just as we arrived to Delaware park for portraits, the rain set in so we went up into the History Museum. In my opinion, the marble among other beautiful details of the museum added to the formal portraits. Once the rain passed we ventured around more!
The ceremony took place at the St. Joseph’s Cathedral. It’s absolutely beautiful and it was important to the family to have a Catholic ceremony. If you’re looking to have your wedding exclusively at Delaware Park, ceremonies can be held at The Rose Garden, which is in close proximity to The Terrace at Delaware Park.

Overlooking Hoyt Lake and next to The Rose Garden, The Terrace at Delaware Park is the quintessential outdoor wedding venue. After arriving, we of course stole the bride and groom for more portraits while everyone arrived at the reception. Once we returned everyone gathered for speeches and this is when everyone’s love for Alexander and Samantha was the most evident. So many people were tearing up! I’m not a very emotional person and even I was having a hard time keeping it together. After a nice meal everyone partied the night away (and broke drinking glasses three different times, haha).
Thank you for reading along! If you’re considering The Terrace for your wedding, I’m sure you are convinced it’s a great choice!
