Brianne & Shaun’s Saratoga Hilton Wedding Saratoga Springs Wedding Photographers

Brianne & Shaun, November 18, 2017, Saratoga Hilton



We had such a fun day with Brianne and Shaun in November for their wedding. We immediately fell in love with this couple’s funny sense of humor during their engagement session and we knew we’d have a fun day with them.  Most of the day we were at the Saratoga Hilton.  Both Brianne and Shaun got ready in separate hotel rooms.  When we met up with Brianne we were surprised to find all of her attendants in full out animal print footed PJ’s.  They were relaxing and sipping bubbly when we entered the room.  They giggled and told jokes and were game for a group photo in their unique attire.  Shaun got ready the floor below and was all smiles when Keith arrived.  We drove the groom over to Congress Park where we set up a First Look.  Brianne arrived a few minutes later and the couple had their First Look in front of the Trask Fountain.  We did many photos in the park, including the couple portraits and the wedding party.  We all headed back to the hotel for family photos and then got ready for the ceremony.  The couple were married in the hotel in front of around 140 guests and then proceeded to cocktail hour in the ballroom lobby.  Our good friend, Mike Garrasi from Music Man Entertainment lit the ballroom with a beautiful blue uplighting, which really added a beautiful touch to the ballroom.  All the guests enjoyed dancing and even a photo booth by Smile Lounge in the corner for a keepsake from the wedding.  Near the end of the reception, the Bride’s attendants snuck upstairs and changed back into their animal pj’s and surprised the room when they entered to “What did the Fox Say.”

Thanks so much Brianne and Shaun for sharing your fun day with us.  As you’re aware, we love your “sick” sense of humor and believe this is why we get along so well with you, LOL.  Wishing you both all the best!
