Taylor & Salvatore, July 2, 2021, Franklin Plaza, Troy, NY
Taylor and Salvatore (aka Sal) were one of our couples who had to postpone their wedding due to Covid last year. We made a date for this July and kept our fingers crossed that restrictions would loosen. Most importantly the wearing of masks were of concern, especially for the Groom cause he has a hearing impairment and reading lips is a must for him if someone does not know sign language. We were so glad this day went off without a hitch. We started the day over at Best Western Franklin Square where not only Taylor was getting hair and makeup done with her girls, but Taylor had the most precious flower girls who got a little touch up from the makeup artists. Sal and his guys finished getting dressed when we arrived and popped some champagne for a toast. The couple had a First Look out under the iconic Franklin awning and her Maid of Honor (and soon to be Hitlin Bride), Lindsay helped getting her positioned. Seeing these two puts a smile on your face, because Sal is all smiles when he looks at Taylor and Taylor has the prettiest face and a little dimple. We did most portraits ahead of Ceremony and then the couple were married inside the ballroom. Right after the couple were married, we gathered the family and wedding party out in the back alley where they set off confetti cannons over the newly married couple. This crowd came to party, and DJ Mike Garassi had the dance floor going and full all night long. During parent dances, Salvatore’s ASL interpreter signed to him the lyrics of the song he danced with his mom to. I don’t think there was a single dry eye in the room. We ended the night outside for a night shot. It started to sprinkle, so we made some magic for some ending pictures of the day. Congrats again to Taylor & Sal. You guys are beautiful together and we can’t wait to see what life has in store for you two.
