Jessica & Ryan’s Franklin Plaza Ballroom Wedding Troy NY Wedding Photographers

Jessica & Ryan, September 23, 2016, Franklin Plaza, Troy, NY


What an amazing first days of Fall that we had for Jessica and Ryan’s wedding.  The weather was perfect and the leaves were just starting to change their color.  We started the day at the Best Western Franklin Square where wet met the guys getting dressed.  A bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label was out and the guys were super chill watching T.V. when we arrived.  Ryan and his guys began to get ready and our friend Pesha King was on hand to help all the guys with their boutineers.  We headed over to Jessica’s parent’s house in Troy. Her parents have an amazing property and after some prep shots of Jess and her girls, we did the First Look of the couple right in the beautiful backyard.  Everyone hopped in the stretch limo and we proceeded to the Crossings of Colonie for some formals.  Lovecraft Productions tagged along wherever we went.  We always have fun with Mike Verenini; adding to the creativity mix of the day.  We ended at our final destination, Franklin Plaza, which we headed immediately up to the roof to capture some amazing cloud coverage.  A beautiful candle lit ceremony was officiated by our friend Msgr. Christopher Richard, and then after Franklin’s immaculate cocktail hour, guests headed into the grand ballroom to party.  The day was perfect!

Thanks again Jessica and Ryan for honoring us with being your wedding photographers.  You had a beautiful day and we know your married life will have many beautiful moments.  Love to you both!
