This blog has been a long time coming, so I am really excited to get it up. Lesley and Jay are a fantastic couple. They are so easy to get along with and really some of the most sincere people I have ever met. Needless to say, I knew their day was going to be amazing, rain or shine! 

Wedding morning, while we were on our way to meet up with Lesley at the Hampton Inn in downtown Albany, I was continuously checking the weather. It looked like a rainstorm was on it's way to Albany right about the time we were planning her first look with Jay! They must have worked something out with mother nature, because once we were ready for the first look the rain stopped and the sun came out! Wow, we got some amazing photos! Downtown Albany is really such a beautiful area to shoot in. We don't get to do it enough!

Lesley and Jay had their reception at 11 North Pearl which is an absolutely beautiful location. This was our first time working there and I was really excited about working there. I've heard a lot of great things about the place, so finally getting in there to shoot was pretty exciting. Classe' Catering really knocked it out of the park! Even better, we got to work with our good friend and DJ Mike Reilly of CT Productions. He kept the party going and the dance floor packed until the very end of the night. It was a great party!!

I know you're waiting for the photos, so let's get to them! I'll start off with some dress details. Lesley had a gorgeous gown from Bridal Gallery by Yvonne.
