Kristina & Matthew, July 23, 2016, Glen Sanders Mansion
Kristina and Matt’s wedding day was filled with love, laughter and crazy skies! The entire day took place at one of our favorite venues, The Glen Sanders Mansion, where the entire staff of Mazzone Hospitality goes above and beyond on a wedding day. When we started the day up in the bridal suite, Kristy and her girls were having a dance party and sippng champagne brought up by Mazzone staff, Maki (we love her and she hates her picture taken ;). After Kristy slipped into her beautiful Maggie Sottero gown, we got some gorgeous solos of the Bride and all the girls with mom and dad toasted as Kristy was about to get married. The guys were in another room, and when we entered, the jovial crew were putting on the finishing touches of their tuxes and we gathered them all outside for pictures. The weather was iffy to say the least. With guests of around 170, and musicians playing music for the ceremony (all of these were Kristy’s music students), the plan was an outdoor ceremony. Pesha King laid a gorgeous flower petal design on the sidewalk, and then the wind began to pickup and the skies got dark. Mazzone coordinator, Lucien and Keith discussed and looked at various weather apps to determine the path of the storm. It looked as if the cell was just hovering over Glen Sanders, and as arrangements were made to move things indoors, a large lightning bolt was seen in the sky. Every single vendor worked as a team to get everything inside, especially helping DJ Nate Miller and gathering his sound equipment that was set up. This is what is truly great when we work with amazing people; we are all a team and help each other out! So the ceremony was switched to inside and an intimate ceremony was had in the front sitting room. Guests proceeded to cocktail and the last bits of the storm moved off leaving a MOST AMAZING sky. We headed down to the dock with Kristy and Matt and captured such beautiful images full of vibrant colors. The reception kicked off in the grand ballroom and it quickly turned into a night to remember!
Thank you Kristy and Matt for your trust and judgement of your entire team on your wedding day. We had so much fun with you both and we captured some amazing stuff. We wish you both all the love in the world!
