We couldn’t wait to get this wedding on the Blog. Not only are Lauren and Bob super cool people, but they are literally our neighbors. When we first received contact from them and made our consult meeting, low and behold, they lived right around the corner from us. Of course from the first meeting, we hit it off. We had such a blast with them again up in Bolton Landing for their engagement images and even got to meet their precious little daughter and fall in love with her too. It’s hard for me to refer to these guys as clients; cause I truly believe through this, we’ve become friends. We even brought our family to their rehearsal dinner BBQ the night before the wedding.
The wedding day was so much fun. We started at their home (we could practically walk there if we wanted to), where Lauren got ready. Lauren owns The Hair-Em Salon, so of course her hair was flawless. We love how their daughter got ready there as well, and we got some really sweet shots of mom and daughter. Bob arrived along with a town firetruck. Bob just happens to be one of the Fire Chiefs for the East Greenbush Fire Company and has some connections. We did their first look outdoors and some shots with the truck. Then we moved to the First United Methodist Church of East Greenbush where the couple were married. The entire wedding party headed via party bus to downtown Albany where we captured some images utilizing that amazing downtown landmark architecture. We ended up at their reception venue, 90 State Events. This place is SERIOUSLY amazing! The tall columns and high ceilings give this place such a magical look. We had some fun in the vault for some more pics of the couple before heading into their cocktail hour. Mazzone Hospitality hit it out of the park again and DJ Chris Wright from Cool Cat rocked the house. Being a guest list of mostly firefighters, as you can imagine, it got interesting throughout the night. A tradition that has been passed down in the form of the “marriage ceremony” occurred. It was something we’ve never seen before and funny as well. You’ll have to check out the pics to see what I’m talking about ;).
Thanks again Lauren and Bob! We had a blast with you two and we look forward to continuing our friendship and watching your baby girl grow!!
