Very likely that we will be having a smaller second reception in Lackawanna, NY (soon to be FI’s hometown). We’re thinking of a backyard BBQ reception. I can ask his folks for advice, but I was wondering if any Bee’s could recommend a good photographer and/or caterer.
I would just need a photog for an hour or two to get some professional shots of the family.
The food we’re wanting to serve is typical BBQ fare- ribs, chicken, pork, corn, beans, etc.
Anybody have any ideas?
Wedding is in Sept 2013, but I’d like to start reaserching now since I will have 2 receptions to plan.

@BelleFille: Dinosaur BBQ, all the way!! http://www.dinosaurbarbque.com/
They are amazing and a Western NY institution. And they do lots of catering!

@BelleFille: I would totally second Dinosaur BBQ. A friend of mine had a rehearsal dinner catered by them and it was really nice. Nothing much for the vegetarians, though 😉

Dinosaur BBQ is SO good!
I’m not from Buffalo, but from nearby (40 min-1 hour). My photographer lives in the same town I do, so he’s an hour or less away from there. He is FANTASTIC! I was so so pleased with my pictures! I’m excited to get to use him again.
His website is http://www.nickdantoniophotography.com

Thanks for the recommendations on photographers! We should have a date set soon for the Buffalo reception and then I can contact the photogs!

@BelleFille: I highly recomment Mitch from mitch’s studio (mitchstudio.com). He has done multiple weddings I’ve been to and I have recommended him to others as well – he is great! Very personable, accomodating and reasonably priced.

Have you found a photographer yet? Look up Bridget Rochelle Photography. Her packages start at $1,500 and she includes the DVD of edited pictures with her packages. She takes beautiful pictures!

@Almost Mrs.P: do they come all the way out to Buffalo From Rochester? I guess its not too far. I’m from Syracuse, where the original is, and of course I totally second (or third) this idea.
