Shannon & Marc, October 16, 2021, Loft 433, Troy, NY
Shannon and Marc started their day at the Courtyard Marriott in Troy, where both of them got ready in separate rooms. We jockeyed between both rooms to capture the prep of each. Shannon chose to do her first reveal with her dad outside near the water and then met her Groom in the same place for their First Look together. It was quite a windy day out near the Hudson River (probably our windiest wedding day yet). These two were troopers as we worked through heavy winds. We found a nook to take some pics behind the venue that helped with the wind. We captured some gorgeous shots near the iconic red smokestack and then made our way back to the hotel to meet up with the wedding party. We did their photos in the hotel lobby and then everyone walked to Loft 433 where we got a quick rooftop shot and then headed indoors for family photos. Right before the ceremony, the skies turned dark and it began to rain. It came down heavy. We were so glad we had gotten all of our outdoor shots. The couple were married inside Loft 433 in front of their family and friends. During cocktail hour, we snuck outside with one of our umbrellas and captured some amazing rain shots with the couple. The Reception space opened up and the wedding party had some pretty fun entrances. Guest enjoyed listening to wonderful speeches as well and delicious food from Mazzone Hospitality. We surprised the couple with a day of sneak peek of images on the big screen and everyone loved it. Marc’s grandmother, who is 99, was in attendance and Marc danced with her and then they watched some images of Marc’s mom who had passed when Marc was a little boy. It was such a touching moment of the evening. The dance floor was packed, thanks to DJ Mike from Sound Formula. It was truly a day to remember. Congrats again Shannon and Marc and thanks for choosing Hitlin Photography Inc.
