THIS ONE IS DEFINITELY A SHOW STOPPER! Brady comes from a family we have been photographing for years now and she is the second wedding from that family we’ve done (We have another next year and possibly one more ;)). We were excited to shoot the Canfield Casino for the first time and knowing Brady, knew that she and this entire wedding were going to be absolutely stunning.
We met up with Brady in the midst of a ton of family all getting ready in the Bridal Suite of the Saratoga Hilton. True Grace Makeup’s outstanding artists, owner-Jennifer McCarthy-Norton and Chris Burt were busy getting the girls glammed up and looking fabulous. Brady decided she wanted a mini boudoir shoot to give to Kevin as a gift, so we quickly had everyone (except for AWESOME maid-of-honor Emily who was such a big help, vacate the room). We got some AMAZING shots but really can’t post them here-cause they’re for Kevin’s eyes only ;). There’s a little teaser below.
Once everyone was dressed, we headed over to the Canfield Casino in Congress Park. This place is so beautiful and really gives you that “Old Saratoga” feel. Kevin and Brady had their first look on the Canfield steps and even though it wasn’t planned, all of her bridesmaids photo-bombed the pictures by being in the windows taking pics with their phones. We actually LOVE this and it makes the images that more exciting.
The two were married by officiant Nick Cardamore who happens to be their close friend. It was a beautiful ceremony with lots of giggles and laughter. The reception in the main ballroom was CRAZY! Not only were there beautiful flower arrangements on each table done by the bride’s sister and our good friend Erin Freund, but DJ Chris Hollister from Hollister Entertainment had the dance floor literally JUMPING! Chris has a wonderful personality and played all of the couples’ favorites.
It was seriously a night to remember. Brady and Kevin, thank you so much for including us in your special day. You two are AMAZING and you made us feel like part of the family. Best wishes to you both!!
Such a gorgeous gown and check out that bridal bouquet done by the Bride’s sister Erin.

OMG, seriously Brady. This girl has STRIKING good looks and these have to be some of the most beautiful images we’ve shot!
I love how Kevin has that old fashion charm! Very debonair!
This couple looks like they belong on a 1950’s magazine cover!
OH Canfield Casino and your famous stained glass ceiling
