Carissa Hill and Mario Grasso were married at Pearl at the Webb, June 17th, 2017 in this Buffalo NY wedding.
The ladies started the day at Studio 806 where Carissa works as a Stylist. The team did a great job and gave her a vintage look. I thought she looked like Betty Draper from Madmen.
After we spent time with the ladies, we then cruised over to the groom and his men. We were all over the city for this Buffalo NY wedding. We met the lovely Blanche (pet guinea pig) and took a few fun shots with the guys. We loved their checkered Vans sneakers.
The building on Pearl Street was very spacious and had a rustic feel with the large brick archways, wooden flooring, and antique decorations.
A Little Bit About the Bride and Groom.
Carissa, a hair stylist, hit on Mario, a general contractor, at a bar. They have been inseperable ever since. Carissa loves mario’s smile, his thoughtfulness, ambition, and his ability as a provider. Mario loves everything about Carissa! It’s impossible to write them all down. We can see how much he loves her just by the way he looks at her. He proposed while they were outdoor ice skating.
The ceremony was lovely with a handfasting ceremony. Their hands were bound by colorful rope as they shared their vows. I guess this is where the phrase “Tying the knot” comes from.
We got really close to this wedding party, literally as we all rode in the limo to City Hall for formal shots.
The rest of the night was a blast! Everyone moved to the dance floor side of the hall later that night. It was popping.
Fallesen Photography wishes you a long and happy life together filled with love and laughs.
