When getting married, one of the choices you have to make is where you will have your wedding photos taken? Often brides and grooms have difficulties figuring out what location is close to their venue and what spot has the best background. Buffalo is a beautiful city with many options, but maybe you want to find a location that is unique and different than others.
Wedding photos are the one thing you will have forever from the big day. So make it extraordinary, fresh and exciting and, well we might just have the answer for you. 500 Pearl! With over 425,000 square feet of space, there are a variety of options with the most beautiful backdrops and hidden gems inside the building that will make the most iconic setting for your wedding day photos.
If you are hosting your wedding at 500 Pearl, you do not even have to travel to find the perfect background. Take the elevator up to Patrick’s rooftop with awe inspiring views of Downtown Buffalo and Lake Erie. This setting will provide the most beautiful sights of the natural and architectural landscapes around the building for the most perfect Buffalo skyline background for local couples.
Another great option is our corporate suites located on the 9th floor. If you are renting out this space to spend the night after getting married, you will love the photos that come from this room. The spiral staircase and views out the floor to ceiling windows will help capture a photo of a lifetime. Walk down the staircase to your future husband for a first look before saying “I Do” or be amazed with the open windows to the floor with a stunning scene.
For a fun shot with your new wife/husband, go inside the w xyz bar and lounge. Grab a drink and hang out at one of our navy blue velvet booth for a casual but enjoyment atmosphere for a killer photo. It will make couples feel relaxed and get to sit back while enjoying all the day’s adventure.
Go with a hidden gem inside the building and take a unforgettable shot on the staircases going up to the Forbes Theater or the Grand Aeries room. Have your photographer take a photo between the stair poles for a beautiful photo you will look back on for years to come.
