An Industrial-Chic Wedding Full of Local Pride at Silo City in Buffalo, New York
Bernice Radle (27), met her future husband, Jason Wilson (27) doing what they both love—advocating for historic buildings. Together they own Buffalove Development, a business that buys and rehabilitates vacant buildings in the city of Buffalo. They even have their own series, "American Rehab" premiering soon on HGTV network! So, it's really no surprise that two die-hard, Buffalo-loving preservationists chose to marry where they did—a cluster of old grain elevators on the Buffalo River called "Silo City." In fact, the were the first couple to ever get married there. With a quintessentially "Buffalo" backdrop of Silo City, Bernice and Jason pulled off their easy-going "Buffa-love" themed wedding with the help of their favorite local businesses—from food trucks to bridal boutiques. A sorbet-inspired color palette of tangerine, orange, pink, yellow and teal popped against the decaying venue and lent the day an air of carefree whimsy. The best part? Before the ceremony, the mayor of Buffalo surprised them with a statement and certificate declaring July 5th the official "Bernice and Jason Day" to thank them for all of their work to bring Buffalo back to life.
