Andrea & Peter’s Franklin Plaza Wedding Troy NY Wedding Photographers

Andrea & Peter, May 18, 2019, Franklin Plaza


We were so excited to head out for this wedding since we had such an amazing time with Andrea and Peter for their engagement session. We knew this couple were up for anything and would be so fun to work with on their wedding day. Andrea is a ball of energy. When we arrived in her hotel suite, she was raring to go with her girls who just finished makeup.  The girls had a champagne toast and we took Andrea into the bedroom to open up a card from the groom and open his gift. It’s always nice giving a private moment for this since emotions can come out.  Keith headed over to Peter’s hotel room, where the guys also had a celebratory toast and Peter got the chance to open a card and gift from his Bride as well.  The couple had a first look in front of Franklin’s entrance and then hopped onto a large party bus with their entire wedding party to head over to Sage college for their pictures.  The sun was bright and it was quite warm out but this crew were so fun and we worked quickly to get lots of pics before heading back to Franklin to meet up with family for photos.  The couple were married in the ballroom in a candlelit ceremony in front of around 200 guests.  The ballroom was then transformed into the reception area and we headed outside for some amazing blue hour photos of the couple.  If anyone remembers that amazing shot of the couple from their engagement session, we all know that Andrea and Peter are PRO SPINNERS.  What that means, is when we ask a couple to twirl; these two do it to perfection. Of course we had to capture some perfect twirls on their wedding day and I think these two get the grand award for the perfect spins.  Guests danced the night away to many selections played by the amazing Accents band.  The couple even had enough time with us to head up to the third floor to capture their after party, which Franklin definitely knows how to do right.  It was a perfect day for a most perfect couple.  Thanks again Andrea and Pete for trusting us with capturing your Wedding Day memories.
