Kelly shares the story of her and Wojtek’s wedding, where a beautiful Rosa Clara dress, elegant venues and a loving couple were the stars of the day.
Location and Special Details: Our ceremony was at St. Joseph Cathedral in downtown Buffalo, New York, and our reception was at the Buffalo Club, also downtown. The Buffalo Club is a members-only club that was founded in 1867 and is in a beautiful historic building.
I was born and raised in Buffalo. Wojtek, who has been living here in the states for about 10 years, is originally from Poland. Most of my family and some of his live here, so it was important for me to have our wedding here. We go to St. Joseph Cathedral regularly, and it is one of the most beautiful churches in the city—so it seemed a fitting place to wed. We also had three priests officiating at the cathedral: one, our main celebrant, who is a close friend of my parents and has become a close friend to me and Wojtek; the second, another family friend; and the third, a priest originally from Poland who did part of our ceremony in Polish. This was very important to Wojtek, as this is his native language and his immediate family (mother, brother, sister and niece) were visiting from Poland. It was truly a bilingual ceremony, which made it really interesting and unique, in our opinion and as we heard from all of our guests! Everything from the ceremony and the sermon to the music was absolutely magical.
