Laura & Nick’s Old Daley on Crooked Lake Wedding Albany NY Wedding Photographer

Laura & Nick, November 3, 2023, Old Daley on Crooked Lake


November started to show some cooler temperatures, but we were just mild enough in the beginning of November to get in one more outdoor ceremony.  Laura and Nick came up from Charleston, SC for their big day at Old Daley on Crooked Lake.  We had communicated mostly through phone and email and we were so excited to be together for their Wedding.  Laura and Nick got ready in their respective suites upstairs.  Laura and her girls had a fun toast and then her mom and sister helped get into her gown.  Nick was toasted by his best man and both fathers after getting fully suited up.  Laura had a reveal with her dad and then the couple saw each other for a First Look right outside of Old Daley’s main entrance.  We moved around the property on this very sunny day capturing the couple.  We headed inside to the Oak Room for some gorgeous images by the bar and even did some photos in the breezeway.  The couple had an outdoor ceremony by the lake and guests were given scarves if extra warmth was needed.  After the Ceremony, Laura and Nick greeted all of their guests in a receiving line leading into the Cocktail Hour room.  We shot the details of the Reception as the couple mingled with guests.  The tables each had a unique number that was made out of one large piece of marble cut into various pieces.  A Tuscan head table was situated to face the stage as Funk Evolution was to preform.  White Lotus adorned all the tables with a beautiful array of white florals and greenery.  The couple had their first dance and the party got under way as the band took the stage.  Everyone ended the night enjoying some Cider Belly donuts for dessert.  We really had so much fun with you both; Laura and Nick.  Our cheeks still hurt a little from all the smiling and giggling we did with you as we took your pictures.  Congrats again to you both.
