Kaitlyn & Drew, August 11, 2018, 90 State Events
Kaitlyn and Drew are a super sweet couple who were married a few weeks back in Albany, NY. The forecast for the day was RAIN, and lots of it. Fortunately, most of the day’s events were to occur indoors, but we worked out a plan to get outside for some natural light shots; even if it meant an umbrella or two. Kaitlyn and her girls got ready at the Albany Hilton. The girls hung out in the room with their cute P.J.’s as the Bride got the final touches on hair and makeup. Videographer Leann Fyvie arrived and we hit it off immediately with her. She is such a talent and so fun to work with; it really added to the ease of the day. Kaitlyn got dressed in the suite across the hall, which gave us ample room to move about as her mom and maid-of-honor and soon to be Hitlin Bride Taylor, helped her into her gown. Down the street, we met up with Drew and his guys at St. Mary’s. We found cover quickly as the rain came down steadily at this point. A bagpiper stood outdoors greeting everyone to the service. The couple were married in a Catholic Mass in front of about 220 guests. After the ceremony ended and we did family pictures, the crew boarded their trolley and we hit up the State Ed building and the NY Capital. Both of these buildings offer a nice overhead shelter while still being outdoors, so they were excellent choices for the weather. Reception was downtown at 90 State Events and Mazzone staff served up Cocktail Hour on both floors. DJ Patrick Bergeron welcomed everyone into the reception and it was a PARTY! The bride literally danced every song and friends and family had so much fun enjoying their evening. What a great day we had with you both; Kaitlyn and Drew. Thanks for all the smiles and willingness to brave the rain here and there. We wish you much love in your marriage together.
