Buffalo History Museum Wedding

An Emotional Celebration on the Steps of Buffalo’s History Museum

Marc and Jeffrey's beautiful wedding day started in their home which they shared with Bella, their dog that they had adopted together when they first started dating 11 years prior. The storytelling moments Love List member Ciao Bella Studios captures — Bella watching over her dads as they write their vows, ironing of a custom ivory tuxedo in the bedroom — set the scene for the emotion that spills out throughout the day. The grooms and their wedding party shared a quick Champagne toast in their backyard before heading to the Buffalo History Museum, which was just a few blocks away. “It's where we spend time as a family, it's where we walked the dog, so having the wedding there only seemed fitting and gave the venue added significance,” says the grooms.

Surrounded by 150 of their closest friends and family, the grooms walked down the aisle together, up the museum's granite staircase that was decorated with cascading English ivy and hurricane vases. As they walked, Marc looked over at Jeff as tears began streaming down his face. They took each others' hand as Marc said, “Let's do this!”

After a beautiful reading of “The Art Of A Good Marriage” by Wilifered Arlan Peterson, they exchanged traditional vows and rings and were officially introduced as husbands. After taking a moment to reflect by themselves, they joined their guests inside. The geometric spheres made by artist Modlode were the foundation to the reception design. Each was filled with white and green blooms at teach table, and smaller geometric vessels were sprinkled around the room with votives. The gold details popped beautifully against the museum's classic black-and-white interior. “Seeing all of your friends and family their to celebrate our love and share in our special day was overwhelming and truly unforgettable.”

As a lover of all things wedding and a fierce cheerleader for marriage equality, I decided to marry my two passions and create a resource where all couples can be equally represented. Armed with seven years in both print and online lifestyle journalism, I dove headfirst into this passion project in 2013 and Love Inc. was born. I’m inspired every day by the couples that grace our pages, from the can’t-live-without-you grasps to the gentle sweeping away of a happy tear, the love that they so clearly have for each other is intoxicating, and drives me to create the best product possible … while enjoying every second of it.
