Kaitlyn & Matt, October 25, 2019, Franklin Plaza
Kaitlyn and Matt had a very Troy wedding day as we stayed right within city limits. We started at the Best Western Franklin Square with the Bride as she was finishing makeup and hair. When we were shooting Kaitlyn’s details, we were so surprised by her choice of Betsey Johnson boots. It was like a surprise for her attire. The rhinestone encrusted boots definitely made a statement and we loved them. Kaitlyn’s mom helped her get into her gown and then she had a first reveal with her father in the hotel suite. We met Matt and his guys in the hotel lobby for the pinning of his boutineer and then we headed to the Church of Saint Joseph to get ready for their wedding. Kaitlyn and her dad pulled up in a vintage white Rolls Royce and then headed down the aisle to see her man for the first time. It was a lovely ceremony. After, we did family photos at the church and some very dramatic darker shots in the church aisle. We all then moved to Franklin Plaza where we took some remaining photos with the vintage car and then made use of all of Franklin’s best photo spots for photos of the couple. The couple joined Cocktail Hour and we slipped downstairs to capture the beautifully decorated ballroom. Kaitlyn and Matt did their first dance and surprised everyone with some elegant dance moves and a lift. Guests enjoyed excellent food and lots of dancing. We ended the evening with a beautiful shot in front of Franklin’s vault. It was a picture perfect day for you both Kaitlyn and Matt and we are so glad we were able to capture so many great shots; even with some left over foliage during the day. Congrats again on your marriage.
