Dan and Lua

This duo met while one half was in New York and the other still all the way in Brazil. Lua was looking for people to practice her English with as she was going to America with an exchange program to be an Au Pair. She found Dan shared her same interests and their friendship grew. In one of their very early conversations, the language barrier caused a bit of a mix up when Google Translator sent, “Really are we married?” from Lua to Dan, instead of “Really are they married?” a question she was asking Dan about his friends. Something they laugh about now as the look back at how their story began. If you want to read about this cuteness in its entirety check out their love story. Her maid of honor was absolutely right in her speech when she said, ‘This meeting didn’t just happen. This was fate, it was destiny.’ We loved being a part of this awesome celebration, the love, the laughs and the DANCING. So so awesome you guys. Congratulations on being exactly where you were always suppose to end up, what a ride!

Nicholas & Alexa

When we ended our 2015 wedding season with the spectacular New Years Eve wedding below, we had no idea that our kick off to the 2016 season would be just as epic.

Enter Nick and Alexa. These two college sweethearts could not wait to be married and celebrate their entire day with the people they love most. It was a perfect day from the beginning starting off at the Pavilion Grand, these two shared a private first look on the patio of their bedroom suite.  Once the nerves had calmed and the tears had dried it was time to head to Saratoga National for the beautiful interfaith ceremony under the handmade Chuppah. As the reception began DJ Vinny Vin started the party off immediately as the new couple was introduced and guests were on their feet the entire night, no exaggeration – this was one killer dance floor.  We loved being a part of this beautiful union, you guys set the bar for 2016!

Garrett & Stefanie

When I say 2015 flew by, I mean it whooshed by at supersonic speed. Our largest, by far, year to date. So many amazing couples and incredible moments, so many great venues. I mean really we could have had our own series on TLC. It was an amazing year even up to the very last day of it.

Meet Garrett and Stefanie. Just watch this video to see what an amazingly adorable, perfect-for-each-other, kind of couple they are. Words don’t do these soulmates justice or even their wedding day. It was spectacular and filled with all the sparkle you would hope for on New Years Eve. Thank you both so much for having us be a part of this night and celebrating a wonderful year. You two are the real deal.

Kathryn & Nathan

Kate & Nate are a match made in heaven. Meeting on the first day of college, the rest was soon history as they tied the knot in beautiful Saratoga just before Christmas. Guests arrived to the iconic Saratoga Dance Museum to witness the vows, then celebrated the night away in downtowns Canfield Casino. It was a magical, romantic, candlelight filled festivity where guests laughed, cried and danced the night away. For a moment I felt as though I was in the Great Gatsby, surrounded by fabulous sparkling people and loud, exciting jazz music. It was such a blast! Thanks so much for having us be a part of it!

Tricia & Tom

As we round out the last weddings of 2015, it makes me think back to all of the amazing couples we have met and had the honor of capturing. To spend one of the most important days in their lives with them is truly special to us. We have been able to witness so many different cultures come together and countless celebrations, no two the same. Each so special and unique to that couple. It still gets me every time I catch a glimpse of the bride or groom look at the other in only a way that two people who love each other do…

There was a lot of that this day in December. Tricia and Tom are a couple that others strive to be like. This tiny excerpt of what Tricia said about Tom and their relationship sums it up:  “There isn’t a day that goes by that Tom doesn’t make me laugh, we compliment each other so well and have a deep respect for each other. It keeps our relationship interesting and we have both developed new interests from each other. What we have in common is our friendship and love for each other.”

Watch all the gorgeousness below!
