I know many of you have been itching to see the photos from this wedding ever since we had so many people fall in love with this couple’s TEASER! Well, here you are! Patti and Durrell had a super fun wedding high above the city of Albany at the posh restaurant, Taste. Back in the winter, we shot their E-Session at the Empire State Plaza. It was a cold day but we had a lot of fun getting to know this couple personally. Actually, Patti was our insurance agent once upon a time and it was great getting the chance to re-connect.
Patti and Durrell’s favorite restaurant is Taste, and this is where he proposed to her. So why not have their wedding here; it was a no-brainer! Patti was flawless throughout the day, thanks to Lipstick N Lashes Beauty Bar and Boutique. Maura from Taste did a fabulous job keeping Durrell downstairs in the restaurant while Patti got ready near the ballroom and terrace in the penthouse. Fleurtacious Designs created the gorgeous floral bouquets and centerpieces for the evening.
The ceremony was conducted on the terrace overlooking the beautiful Albany skyline. Guests were greeted by the sounds of the islands compliments of Robanic, the only authentic reggae band in upstate New York. The Jamaician theme continued into the reception with a delicious array of foods for dinner. The dance floor opened up by one of our favorite DJ’s, Fernando Bustamante from Piano Man Productions, who kills it every time.
This wedding was beyond fun and we were very excited to photograph this unique venue with such a wonderful couple. Congrats Patti and Durrell again! We wish you all the happiness in the world!

Had to get a shot of Durrell and best man Steve’s cool shoes!
Such a great shot. Durrell was so animated. He gets best reaction to his bride coming down the aisle by far!
