Inside Buffalo Botanical Gardens Pop-Up Weddings

We’re walking you through some of the Buffalo Botanical Gardens pop-up weddings of this year! We’ve said this over and over again this year, but COVID threw everyone for a loop. Most of our couples & vendors had to pivot -insert Ross’ voice from FRIENDS- and think of new ways to make the magic continue. Some couples chose the gorgeous Buffalo Botanical Gardens as their venue, and they went like this. The Buffalo Gardens has openings 01/23/2021 & 02/14/2021 to make pop-up magic! The package includes all photos by Alana Adetola Arts Photography and a cake by Sassi Cakes!
