Larissa & John’s Saratoga Hall of Springs Wedding Saratoga Springs NY Wedding Photographers

Larissa & John, December 3, 2021, Saratoga Hall of Springs


The beginning of December brought in some colder temperatures, and on the big day for Larissa and John, the temps hovered in the low 30’s.  Also with sunset times being earlier this time of the year, we made a plan with the couple to do the majority of their pictures before the ceremony.  Larissa and her girls got ready at Larissa’s parent’s home.  When we arrived, Larissa was in the hair chair and the girls were hanging out.  When Larissa was finished, we did some quick robe shots and then she got dressed with the help of her mom and sister.  She had a first reveal with her bridesmaids and father.  The emotions of a father first reveal get us every time.  After some quick shots in front of the house, we traveled over to the Hall of Springs area to meet up with John to set up the First Look.  Larissa arrived shortly after and the couple had their first chance seeing each other on the portico.  We moved quickly for photos as the temps were pretty chilly.  Larissa was a trooper and did some shots with and even without her fur shawl.  Her dress was gorgeous and we appreciate her braving the cold.  We took some breaks here and there going inside for everyone to warm up.  We shot all of the wedding party at this time as well.  After pics with both of their parents, we headed over to Saint Clements Church.  The sun set as everyone arrived and started getting ready for the ceremony.  The couple were married in front of their family and friends and the ceremony was officiated by Father Fleming who we’ve had the pleasure of capturing many weddings with.  After the couple were wed and we did family photos at the church, we all returned to the Hall of Springs for the Reception.  Bloom’s Floral Design did a fabulous job on table decor and the head table was just gorgeous.  The Accents played many amazing songs as everyone danced and had a wonderful time.  As guests were leaving for the night, a table of hamburger sliders and French fries was set out to take home.  Thank you Larissa and John for braving the temps with us.  You two make a beautiful couple and we were so honored to capture your wedding day.  Congrats!
