Liz & Shawn’s Michael’s Banquet House Wedding Latham NY Wedding Photographer

The forecast for Liz and Shawn’s Wedding day showed rain showers for the majority of the day.  Like they say, “When life hands you lemons (or in this case, rain), you make lemonade.”  We truly believe that rain on a wedding day is not a bad thing.  Some of our favorite wedding images have happened because of a little precipitation here and there.  So future Brides and Grooms, don’t stress; we laugh in the face of rain here at KHP ;)!

We started out the day with Shawn and his guys who were getting ready at his parent’s house.  All of the groomsmen were a hoot to work with and kept the jokes going ALL DAY.  We love how Liz and Shawn’s little dog, Benny joined in on the festivities.  He even donned his own doggie tuxedo.  We proceeded to our next location, where Liz and her girls were getting ready.  Kaitlin Bray, owner of Stut. Spalontique was busy doing her makeup magic on all the girls.  You would think Liz was a nervous bride at first, but we learned very quick that she was super fun-spirited and liked to laugh.  Lauren and Jeremy from LaRose Media met up with us to capture some video footage, and then we all made our way to St. Thomas the Apostle in Delmar.  It was a beautiful ceremony and since the little ring bearer had recently broken his arm, the couple thought of everything and decorated his Radio Flyer wagon just for the ceremony.

After the ceremony, everyone jumped in the “party bus” and we took a quick detour to the couple’s favorite hang-out spot, The Fountain.  Everyone had a drink and I think all the patrons were surprised to see that many formally dressed guys and gals approach the bar.  The owners were super awesome in letting us capture some shots there.  Some of the groomsmen even ordered some pizzas to go!  We then, made our way to the Crossings for our formal pictures and ended up at the couple’s reception venue; Michael’s Banquet House.

Manager Brandy and her father/owner and chef Rick Treacy put on such a great spread and their staff is beyond amazing!  DJ Mike Garrasi from Music Man Entertainment lit up the room with uplighting and played all of the couple’s favorite tunes.  Since this couple LOVES to party, I think we saw them on the dance floor the entire night.  Thanks again Liz and Shawn for such an awesome day!  You guys are the BEST!
