Rachel & Craig’s Hall of Springs Wedding Saratoga Springs NY Wedding Photographers

Rachel & Craig, November 10, 2018, Hall of Springs


What can we say; we’ve been blessed with some amazing weddings this year.  Some have been pretty epic weddings and we think Rachel and Craig’s wedding ranks up there as one.  We were all over the capital region for this one and started the day up in Saratoga Springs at the Embassy Suites by Hilton, where Craig and his guys finished getting dressed. The couple gave each groomsmen a custom designed flask with their likeness on them.  The guys joked around and had lots of laughs as they toasted the Groom.  We then headed to Albany where Rachel and her ladies were finishing the last of their hair and makeup at the Renaissance Hotel.  The girls had the entire library floor to themselves, which is such an amazing space.  Rachel looked so pretty in her robe, which was made from her own mother’s wedding gown.  When you are around Rachel, you just have to smile.  She has the brightest, most amazing smile there is and it is contagious when you are with her.  After getting into her gorgeous gown, we headed to church where the couple were married in a beautiful Catholic Ceremony in front of close to 300 guests.  Parked outside was a vintage car that we had some fun taking pictures around and in before we bopped over to the NY State Capital area and Dept. of Ed.  These are classic Albany landmarks and always make for great photos.  It was windy and quite cold during picture time so we all worked fast.  Keeping the pace and everyone in check for the day was the AMAZING Christine Wheat and Jordan Kratz of CW Special Events.  These ladies are top notch and it is so fun working with them.  We all headed north to Saratoga where we ended at the Hall of Springs.  The Hall was decorated in crystal dripped candelabras and pink toned flowers.  The couple enjoyed dancing to music played by Funk Evolution and guests packed the dance floor and headed to Smile Lounge’s photo booth.  The evening ended with passed McDonalds food; which the guests LOVED and we thought was such a clever idea by the couple.  Thanks again Rachel and Craig for a truly amazing day.  You were such a blast and we wish you all the best in your future together.
