Dawna & Patrick’s Appel Inn Wedding Altamont NY Wedding Photographer

We were excited to be back at The Appel Inn for our second wedding there of the month, but this time for Dawna and Pat.  We started this day at the couple’s house, where Dawna was in the makeup chair of none other than, Tina Barbato of Flawless by Tina.  Dawna had laid all the details out for us and we quickly got to work.  Throughout the house, the Bridesmaids moved about getting ready and drinking from their custom made water bottle given to them by the bride.   Once Dawna slipped into her GORGEOUS Maggie Sottero gown, we headed out the door to meet up with Pat and his guys at the Crossings in Colonie.  Keith began photos and Meg helped the guys pin their boutineers on and then Pat headed out and Dawna and her girls arrived for their photos.  Since the couple did not decide on a first look.  We kept constant contact with each of them via text message to be sure they didn’t run into each other.  Of course, everything went smoothly.  The couple got married at St. Mary’s Historic Church in Albany and had such a beautiful mass.  Premiere Limo then wisked the couple away to the Appel Inn, where we caught the last few moments of day light for a few portraits.  Guests enjoyed impeccable food from Nicole’s Catering and DJ Mike Reilly from CT Productions rocked the house with all the couple’s favorite tunes.  It was a very fast-paced day, but so much fun for us.  Dawna and Pat, we wish for you both a very happy and long marriage!
