RECAP: Buffalo Indie Weddings at the Botanical Gardens 01.08!

Here’s a recap of our latest show at the Botanical Gardens! I know it gets said every after show, but wow, this event was so enjoyable to be a part of. Every vendor did an amazing job with their booths. A huge thank you to Botanical Gardens for hosting our crazy selves! Thank you to Fat Bobs Smokehouse because I’m pretty sure I ate everything! Can we talk about the space!? You guys, it’s a myth that you should wait until Spring to go to the gardens. It was gorgeous inside! Between the fountains, plants and mood lighting, there were many photo-op opportunities. But for such a big venue, everything still felt intimate and romantic, which is kinda the point of a wedding.

Fat Bobs Smokehouse nailed it with their savory food; there was live glam happening, thanks to Beauty Haus Collective for dolling up our models! Oh yes, you weren’t imagining it, we had ACTUAL models strutting their stuff all over the gardens because we’re extra AF, but more importantly, to show how beautiful and functional each dress is! Shoutout to Victoria’s Bridal Shoppe, Lovely Bride Rochester, made by anatomy for providing us with gorgeous attire to gawk over.

These pros know how to do it up, honey. Moving Music provided us with classics to bop to as we sipped on our cucumber mojitos (maybe had more than one) and walked around to get to know everyone. It’s always a pleasure getting to know our couples and hearing about how the wedding planning process is going! This month, we’ve relaunched our monthly newsletter, “Indie Edit,” where we go through the wedding planning process WITH YOU. It’s like we’re your fairy godmother. We use our wealth of knowledge to try and make wedding planning as fun and stress-free as possible, so make sure you sign up for that to make your life easier and get some discounts.

If you missed this show, you did miss a good time. But not to worry, we have our Botanical Gardens recap below from the night! We love all of you and thank you for making every event fun!

To all of the vendors, you guys nailed it! Every booth was SUPERB! Thank you for all that you do! Moonshine Studio took these stunning photos! Hit them up to book for your 2021 nuptials!
