Alayna & Chris’ Old Daley on Crooked Lake Wedding Albany NY Wedding Photographers

Alayna & Chris, August 20, 2022, Old Daley on Crooked Lake


We ended August with a beautiful wedding at Old Daley with Alayna and Chris.  The couple got married on site and when we went to the Groom’s suite, their dog Chance was there and played a strong presence through the entire day.  He even had special wedding attire.  The couple had a first look inside and then we made our way outside, where Alayna’s father parked his vintage Green Chevrolet truck in front of the venue.  We loved taking shots with it, but had to be very careful of the traffic on the road.  After photos while everyone went into hiding, the guests began to arrive.  Right before the ceremony a bald eagle flew back and forth over the ceremony.  This was pretty symbolic being that Alayna’s mom had passed and they were remembering her by lighting a candle in the ceremony.  It was really neat.  Everyone made their way inside after the ceremony and enjoyed cocktail hour.  When the couple were announced for their Reception, their dog Chance came in with them and then circled around them for their First Dance.  Guests had a great time dancing and even enjoyed a donut station and candy/smores station for dessert.  Congrats again to Alayna and Chris on a gorgeous day.  We wish you both all the best.
