Last month we had the pleasure of shooting Kristy and Mark's wedding at Longfellows Inn & Restaurant in Saratoga Springs. Kristy and Mark are such a sweet couple - so genuine and sincere. They were so much fun to work with and get to know! When we first met with Kristy and her mom last February to talk about their big day, we hit it off right away. Not only are Kristy and her mom really awesome people, but we both had a connection because of a horrible disease known as ALS. Kristy had lost a very special family member to the disease, and I was trying to raise awareness about ALS because a very good friend of ours had been diagnosed with ALS. I think finding a cure for this disease is something that holds great meaning for the both of us. In lieu of traditional wedding favors, Kristy and Mark actually donated money to a few meaningful charities, one of them being ALS. Such a great thing to do!!OK, so on to the blog and Kristy and Mark's amazing day!
Since I wasn't blogging last fall when we did their Engagement photos, I thought I'd start off by sharing a few of my favorites from their session - which we shot at the Schenectady Rose Garden. Kristy and Mark brought along their dog Bella for part of the session - it was a lot of fun!
Now on to the wedding. Here's some of the fun details of the day. I love shooting the details!!The flowers at Longfellows were just starting to bloom - they were gorgeous!
The bling was pretty gorgeous too... :)
I loved Kristy's dress! And of course the hanger, which was a gift from her future in-laws. Every bride should have one of these hangers.
Introducing Kristy; a very stunning bride!!
I think she was ready to get married. :)
The ring bearer and two flower girls were triplets and nieces and nephew of Kristy - they were adorable!!
It was hard to tell who was more excited after they were pronounced husband and wife. :) So cute!!
How about some gorgeous flowers? Fun little tidbit for you... see the ring that says "I Love You" on Kristy's flowers? This was the first ring Mark ever gave Kristy while they were dating.
Some beautiful ladies....
... and some handsome fellas. :)
One more of Kristy - isn't she stunning?!
I love these two.
The one on the right is definitely my favorite from the night!
Time to get into the reception...
Loved the cake!!!
Mark makes a cameo appearance in a photo of Kristy and the triplets. :)
This smile is what we saw all night and day. What a happy bride!
Longfellows is such a great place to have a reception!
I think these kids might have been a little excited about cake... :)
I'll end with these two ... Congrats again Kristy and Mark! Wishing you many years of love and happiness!!! Give Bella a kiss for us!
