Deanna & Dan, September 17, 2016, Private Residence, Troy, NY
Deanna and Dan’s wedding day was nothing short of SPECTACULAR! From the moment we met this couple, we fell in love with their sweet personalities and began to get very excited about their big day when they mentioned all they had planned. Deanna wanted to get married at home, where she grew up; right on her father’s property. Well her father, SK, sure has some property; it’s huge! Not only did they plan a grand gala in their “backyard,” but nothing was forgotten, as far as details. This couple hired some of the best in the business to make their big day magical and we have to say, it is probably one of the most beautiful weddings we’ve shot. The day began getting some shots of Dan getting ready and then we headed to Albany, NY to capture the girls in their hotel suite at the Renaissance Albany Hotel. After a first look at the NY State Capital, we headed back to Troy for an amazing ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Around 300 guests enjoyed an assortment of delicacies handcrafted by Mazzone Hospitality and the band, the NY Players got the entire crowd on their feet for dancing. Our friends, Ali and Erin of Christine Wheat Special Events helped us out tremendously and did an absolutely amazing job coordinating the day. And let me just say; the FLOWERS!!!! On Thai of Surroundings Floral Studio worked so hard and created the floral design throughout the day; you just have to see the images below. There were flowers EVERYWHERE and they were unbelievably breathtaking! What an absolutely gorgeous day!
Deanna and Dan, thank you so much for the honor of capturing your big day. We can’t say enough about how much fun we had with you two. We wish you a beautiful and forever loving marriage! Buddy still takes the cake though as the best wedding dog out there ;).
