Our Wedding

We hope you can all join us on June 18th, 2011! We have chosen Elizabeth’s hometown, Buffalo, NY, as the location for our wedding.

Our ceremony will be held at two o’clock the afternoon in the chapel at St. Mary’s Commons in Williamsville, NY. The chapel is part of a beautifully designed building that used to be a convent. In 1998 the building, which is now on the national registry of historic places, was bought by the town and became part of the park that boarders it. In 2004, the building was turned into an apartment building but maintained most of its architectural features. The chapel still remains in the center of the building and our friend Pat, who is the manager of the apartments, has graciously allowed us to hold our ceremony there. We hope you find the chapel and the surrounding park grounds a lovely place to celebrate with us!

Hors d’oeuvres, drinks, dinner, and dancing will be enjoyed starting at 5pm in the Grand Lobby Shea’s Performing Arts Center in downtown Buffalo. Modeled after European opera houses, Shea’s is one of the only remaining Tiffany designed theaters in existence today. We are so happy to be holding our reception in this glamorous theater!
