I never quite know what to expect from the weather on winter wedding days. I always have my fingers crossed for snow, because just the right type of snowfall creates the perfect opportunity to get some unique and beautiful outdoor shots. The perfect snowfall happening at the perfect moment is pretty rare, but that’s exactly what happened at Allison and Tom’s February 2nd wedding at Saratoga National Golf Course. The bride and groom were amazing sports about standing out in the cold, which helped us get some great pictures!
In addition to the wedding party, the bride and groom, and their families, a shout out to everyone else who made this wedding such a fun time! Alayne from Make Me Fabulous is always great to work with, and the crew at Saratoga National never fails to help the newlyweds have an unforgettable day. Jordan from Heavenscent Floral did a beautiful job, too. The Audiostars were playing live when Allison and Tom met, and they were there again on the wedding day keeping the party going and the guests on the dance floor.
Winter weddings can be tricky to plan – we always have our fingers crossed for good weather but sometimes it just doesn’t work out that way. For Amanda and Stefan’s January 19th wedding, the weather was definitely on our side! We were able to capture some great portraits outside during the day, and as soon as we stepped out of the church after the ceremony, we saw that there was a sunset that we needed to make the most of! We made it back to Glen Sanders Mansion just in time, and the sunset was even more beautiful than we expected! The Mansion’s outdoor patio was the perfect place to take the pictures, and we got some more great shots of our fabulous couple.
In addition to how great the bride and groom and their families were to work with, the group of vendors they chose definitely played a huge role in the day running smoothly, and being a lot of fun! As always, the Make Me Fabulous crew did a fantastic job with the hair and makeup, and the flowers were done beautifully by David Michael Schmidt from Renaissance Floral. It’s always a pleasure to work weddings at any of the Mazzone Hospitality locations, they are on top of every last detail to give the bride and groom their perfect day. I always know the reception will be a good party with Fernando from The Piano Man’s DJ Productions – he kept the energy high and the dance floor full all night.
Oh, and you might remember Amanda & Stefan from our previous blog post, with a fun selection from their Photobooth!
Here are some of our favorites from a really great day!
