For any Bride and Groom, it can definitely be hard to plan a wedding. In Lauren and Chris’ case, one was doing the planning in England, while the other did it from here. Lauren moved to England to study abroad and is now currently teacher there. You would think it would be difficult being so far away, but Lauren had a great fiance and mom who helped get everything together for the wedding. We did Lauren and Chris’ engagement shoot awhile back (see below) and learned of their joint love for the theater. They had great personalities during the shoot and we had a great time “hamming it up” at Proctor’s Theater.
Lauren and Chris got married at the Glen Sanders Mansion in Scotia, NY. It was a beautiful, crystal clear day, which really made the beautiful bouquets from Bountiful Blooms and the teal colors of the bridesmaid dresses POP. Lauren, escorted by both her mom and dad, descended down the long outdoor staircase to meet her awaiting groom. The ceremony took place along the river, which made a gorgeous backdrop. We even got the chance to see a few water skiers fly by during the ceremony.
After an awesome cocktail hour, provided by Mazzone Hospitality, the entire party headed into the grand ballroom where DJ Nate Miller and his assistant Gabe from Piano Man’s DJ Productions pumped the tunes. Lauren and Chris crafted a beautifully choreographed first dance to an original song written and sung by her brother Dann Shapiro and his band, Dann and the Girl Over There, titled, “Run to You.” We also got the chance to work with Stephanie from Stephanie Birch Productions as she accompanied us with Videography throughout the day.
We really had a great time at your wedding and wish both of you, Lauren and Chris, a truly happy marriage!

Another Keith Hitlin Photography’s FAMOUS Engaement/Guest books was chock full of signatures. Each guest got to take home a copy of her brother’s song.
Grandpa played the happy couple some tunes on the piano in the lobby.
Great candid shot
