Brittany & Michael, September 8, 2018, Private Estate, Troy, NY
Keith and I are so excited to post this Wedding for your viewing pleasure. This has to go down as the Wedding of the Year, and is seriously the Biggest Wedding Keith and I have ever had the pleasure photographing. When I say this wedding was Epic; I’m not lying. The amount of planning, team work from wedding professionals, and all the details and design produced is absolutely astounding for all who worked on this wedding. Kudos to everyone making such an amazing event for such an amazing couple!
Keith and I have been working with the Fane family for quite some years now and they have truly made us feel like family. We have shot multiple weddings in the family and were over the moon when they told us Brittany got engaged. We met Michael at the engagement session and let me tell you, these two are some of the most photogenic people we’ve shot. Their engagement images came out amazing and we knew that their wedding day wouldn’t disappoint.
Brittany and her girls were getting ready when we arrived at Britt’s parent’s home in Troy. The place was a buzz with everyone getting hair and makeup done. Displays of food were there for the girls to snack on and there even was a mimosa bar. The energy was high and it was fun snapping away. Brittany slipped into her AMAZING Ines Di Santo Wedding gown with the help of her Matron of Honor (sister and Hitlin Alumni), Alyssa and her Mom, Lisa. This gown was jaw dropping and Brittany looked gorgeous in it. We headed over to the church where Michael and his guys were ready for their photos. Michael is a looker and was dressed very sharp. We loved his white tux jacket with black embellishments. Brittany was driven to the church in a cherry red Ford Mustang by her father, Don. The couple were married in front of about 430 guests; YES, I said 430, and then then everyone headed over to the Fane Residence for Reception.
The massive outdoor tent space was transformed into an enchanted garden theme. Floral designer, Oh Thai from Surroundings went above and beyond. The space was simply magical. The guests enjoyed so much delicious food catered by Nicole’s Catering, who hit it out of the park. The band, The New York Players took the stage and delighted the crowd with musical favorites and literally had everyone on their feet even inviting the newlywed couple up on stage to help with a few songs. It was nothing short of a spectacular day!
Brittany and Michael, you had SOME Wedding Day and one we will never forget. You two were so fun. We thank you so much for choosing Hitlin Photography Inc. and wish you many years of marital bliss! Ciao!
