Rainy October Wedding Day in WNY- Shelby & Bobby Rauh

Bobby & Shelby (amongst and ALL their family & friends) got “Rauh-dy” on Saturday in celebration of their wedding here in Southwestern New York! Not even a rainy forecast could steal this gigantic bridal party’s joy! They exchanged vows at Saint James Roman Catholic Church in Jamestown, followed by a huge reception at Moonbrook Country Club.

Their party was made complete with a gorgeous cookie table, TWO cakes, delicious food, fireworks, a live band, and a pile of toothbrushes as party favors for their sweet guests! (Shelby is just months away from finally accomplishing her dream of being a dentist! Which goes to show what a rockstar she is… planning this ENTIRE event while still in dental school!) I ran into more old friends from college, high school, and past weddings than I can even count… and it was SO amazing seeing so many of my past brides & grooms celebrating alongside the Rauhs!

If you feel like this bridal party looks huge… it’s because it totally was! 11 bridesmaids, 12 groomsmen, 4 ring bearers & one flower girl! (I believe my biggest to date, but I’d have to double check after shooting over 100 weddings! Hahaha!) It was nothing shy of an adventure corralling everyone into golf carts so we could take images out on the golf course, but just WAIT until you see the infamous “Moonbrook tree” we got photographs under! SO.WORTH.IT!

Shelby & Bobby—

I’m so glad you guys chose me to be part of documenting your amazing celebration! After changing plans for your wedding so many times over the last year, it was such a joy watching every detail come together so perfectly for you! I can’t wait to see where life takes you both— you are kind, hilarious, loyal and infectiously joyful human beings, and truly are better together! The size of your celebration is a testament to just how loved you are by those around you, and that definitely includes me!!! I adore you both and your amazing family + friends! Here’s to forever as Mr. & Mrs!!!
