On Saturday Love Will Conquer Cancer For Buffalo Couple

BUFFALO, NY - "I didn't want to get to close. I was afraid because I didn't know what could happen," said Sarah Laurent of Buffalo on the eve of her wedding, recalling her feelings when she began falling in love with Chad Gorlewski.

Like many other couples, Chad and Sarah spent part of the the night before their nuptials at a rehearsal practicing the steps they'll be taking on their big day.

The difference for them, perhaps, is all the steps they had to take to even get here.

The couple, who will marry Saturday at First United Church of Christ on Clinton Street, had known each other for nearly a decade through their jobs, working concession stands at HSBC Arena.

But it wasn't until 2008 when they began dating.

One Week Later, Patrons Return To Downtown Bars & Restaurants

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Exactly one week after a gunman shot eight people outside of the City Grill, many patrons returned to Downtown Buffalo's bars and restaurants undaunted by the violence.

"I believe in this city," said bride-to-be Cameron Stelmach, as she held rehearsal dinner at the City Grill. "I bought a house in this city. I'm having my wedding in this city. And so I want more people to see the good side of this city."

While it may take weeks, if not longer, to get a true sense of how the murder of four partygoers might affect business for bar and restaurant owners, many of the Friday club goers sounded determined not to let the violence affect their lives.

REPORTER: Does it concern you at all that there was some violence down here?

STELMACH: It doesn't really concern me that it was down here. I really think that was a random act of violence. I don't think it reflects the neighborhood at all.
