Alisa & Sean, April 13, 2019, Franklin Plaza, Troy, NY
It was a beautiful wedding day for Alisa and Sean in Troy for their April wedding. This sweet couple started their day getting ready at the Best Western Franklin Square. Alisa and her girls took over the bridal suite and were ready to go when we arrived. The bride popped open a champagne bottle and enjoyed a celebratory toast with her girls. Meanwhile, Sean was a floor below getting his jacket on and boutineer pinned on. The guys also toasted the Groom with some beers. Both of them had exchanged letters and we captured some beautiful emotion as they each read the letters to themselves. Alisa’s mom Lori and MOH Amy were on hand to help her get into her dress before she had a tearful reveal with her dad and then lots of hoots and hollars when she walked out to her bridesmaids to show off her dress as well. The couple opted for a First Look and we headed out to the streets of Troy. After seeing each other for the first time we spent some time walking the streets and taking some gorgeous pictures in front of many brownstones before heading back to Franklin to meet up with the wedding party. This group of guys and gals were ready to party and brought so much fun an laughter to the photo time with us. The couple were married in front of around 210 guests in Franklin’s ballroom and then headed upstairs for cocktail hour to sign their wedding certificate with Bishop Christopher Richard. The ballroom was transformed into a beautiful candle lit reception and the entire wedding party had some fun entrances to the room. Alisa and Sean enjoyed their party to the fullest and were seen on the dance floor all night. We did sneak them away for a breather up to Franklin’s 3rd floor and roof for some romantic pics of the couple during the evening. It was such a fun day. Alisa and Sean, we wish you much love and happiness!!
