Sara & Joe’s Franklin Plaza Wedding Troy NY Wedding Photographers

Sara & Joe, August 13, 2021, Franklin Plaza, Troy, NY


It was a double-header Wedding Weekend a few weeks back.  Up First, was Sara and Joe’s Wedding over at Franklin Plaza.  Sara and Joe’s big day was full of fun and smiles.  Sara got ready at the Best Western Franklin Inn with her girls.  The couple have a daughter, who was a very important part of the big day.  It was so cute watching her in awe of her mom’s gown hanging and then getting her very own first look at mom before everyone else.  The couple did not have a first look so we worked on Bride and Bridesmaid photos first and then the girls went and hid inside when the guys arrived.  Joe brought the couple’s dog; affectionally named; Carl.  Carl was an honorary Ring Bearer for the day.  He even came dressed up.  The couple were married inside Franklin and there were some really neat moments during the ceremony including the dog and the couple’s daughter.  After they were officially wed, we did Wedding Party and Family Photos and then took the couple to the roof for some portraits of the two of them.  It was pretty sunny at that time of day, so we agreed to return to the roof later on for Sunset.  The Reception kicked off and the couple danced their first dance and parent dances.  Their Maid of Honor and Best Man gave some really great toasts as well.  Salads were served, and we had an opportunity to get to the roof for sunset.  As we started capturing photos of a very nice sunset, it started to rain in BIG DROPS.  We quickly set up a light behind the couple to capture those drops and O.M.G.; MAGIC HAPPENED!!!!  It was pretty cool capturing a Sunset during a rain storm on the roof.  We had such a wonderful day with this couple.  Congrats again to Sara and Joe and your whole family!
