Leanna & Greg’s Franklin Plaza Wedding Troy NY Wedding Photographers

Leanna & Greg, December 17, 2022, Franklin Plaza


Our 2022 Wedding year wrapped up with this gorgeous wedding at Franklin Plaza.  Leanna and Greg are old souls and incorporated many of their family into their details; especially those who passed.  Leanna chose to wear her Grandmother’s 1961 Wedding Gown.  This gown was in spectacular condition and Leanna really looked princess-like in it.  Greg wore a white jacket tux which really is a classic style and suited him well.  We started the day at Greg’s parent’s home.  His dad and brother were on hand to help him get dressed and his guys arrived for a quick toast to the Groom.  We traveled to the Best Western Franklin Inn and met up with Leanna as she was finishing hair and makeup.  Her details were laid out nicely for us and we got the first glimpse of this amazing gown.  Leanna also mentioned that her Wedding Band was made of both her grandparent’s wedding bands melted together and she had a locket on her flowers with her grandparent’s pictures on it.  It was very evident how much they meant to her.  The couple had their First Look on the third floor and we made good use of all the floors taking pictures of the couple as it was a pretty cold December day.  Franklin is always gorgeous with their holiday decorations and it really helped with the style of the wedding.  The couple were married in the ballroom and enjoyed their cocktail hour before the Reception was revealed privately to them and we captured some pictures of them dancing.  After dinner and formalities, Leanna changed into another gown so her and Greg could get down on the dance floor.  Congratulations to Leanna and Greg and thank you to you both for choosing Hitlin Photography.  We know your love is made for the ages!

That gown was perfect.  I’m sure Leanna’s grandmother was smiling down on her.
