Franklin Plaza November Wedding

Filed under: The Franklin Plaza — admin @ 3:21 pm

Here we are in November already and our weddings are still going strong with
happy brides and grooms, just like Michelle & Matt! They totally embraced
their special day and enjoyed every moment with all their families and
friends. Working at the Franklin Plaza is always a pleasure with Joe, Greg,
Dave, Tyler, Dom and the entire staff. One of the perks of having your
reception at the Plaza is that you can stay at the

Best Western Franklin Square Inn, walk across the street to the Franklin
Plaza for the ceremony, cocktail hour and the reception! This is exactly
what Michelle and Matt planned! At the hotel the bridal party got ready
with hair and make-up thanks to Alayne /Make me Fabulous.

Erin and her sister Leah doing make-up, great job as always!

For this wedding, many of the preliminary photographs were done before the
ceremony, so that Michelle and Matt could enjoy the cocktail hour with their
friends. After, the cocktail hour, quests were directed downstairs to the
magnificent ballroom for the reception.

Vinny Vin/Non Stop Music provided the music for this beautiful evening that
was enjoyed by all!

Thank you Michelle and Matt for choosing us to capture this wonderful day
for you to remember in the images of the day! We appreciate all your
enthusiasm and it was a pleasure spending the day with you!

Congratulations, and we wish all the health and happiness for a happy life

Michael and Nancy

Sixty State Place Wedding

Filed under: Albany,Sixty State Place — admin @ 2:23 pm

We all know that October 31st is Halloween, but what a fantastic day for a wedding, especially the one for
Leah and Dave!
I can’t think of a more perfect couple to choose this date for their special day! They totally embraced the idea of Halloween in a very classy way with unique masks, a magnificent venue at 60 State St Albany, and David Michael Schmidt transforming the room was magical!
We always spend time with the bride first and then the groom which is always enjoyable, but once the ceremony was over and these two were together, OMG, it was like non-stop fun! The connection Leah & Dave have with each other made our work so easy!
Thank you so much for this opportunity to capture this incredible happy day for the two of you and your families!
Congratulations Leah & Dave!
We wish all the best and a life time of health, happiness and laughter!

The State Room October 2014 Wedding

Filed under: THE STATE ROOM — admin @ 1:13 pm

I sound like a broken record, but we have the best brides and grooms! This was truly a magical day as we ventured out into downtown Albany where Amanda and Alex would be celebrating their special day! As we started our day with Amanda and her bridal party, we enjoyed the ideas that Amanda had for certain photo’s she wanted and Michael’s vision for location and later adding Alex and his groomsmen into the mix made for one fun amazing day! After the Church ceremony, we went back to Albany for the reception at the magnificent 100 State Street! Nothing was left out of this happy day for Amanda and Alex, with family and friends enjoying every moment to celebrate the joining of this happy couple!
Thank you Amanda & Alex for your enthusiasm and ideas and willingness to embrace this day for all the memories you will be reminded of as you view the images of your wedding day. Thank you for choosing us to capture this day for you both and making our work so easy and pleasurable!
Congratulations, Amanda & Alex!
We wish you all the health and happiness life has to offer!

What can I say about Nicole and Josh except “WOW”!!! From the moment we
arrived at Nicole’s family home, from outside we heard Nicole scream
“MICHAEL IS HERE” and I knew this was going to be one memorable day! Nicole
had us laughing from the beginning of the day with her high energy and quick
wit to the end of the night still going strong with her new husband Josh
right by her side on the dance floor!!!

It was a whirlwind day starting with Nicole and her girls getting ready with
hair and make-up and then everyone breathless as Nicole showed off her
stunning wedding dress! We continued with spending special time with the
bride-to-be, family and wedding party capturing the beginning of this
amazing day! Next up, it was time to meet Josh, his brothers and groomsmen
at the Church where they were patiently waiting to get started and lots of
joking going around!!! After the beautiful ceremony and a short photo
opportunity, we were off to Sage College and then onto the Franklin Plaza.

After everyone enjoyed the magnificent spread for the cocktail hour, guests
were invited to the beautiful ballroom at the Franklin Plaza to start the
evening festivities. From the introductions, the first dance, toasts,
dinner and everything in-between, I did not stop smiling along with everyone
else who lucky enough to be part of the celebration of Nicole & Josh!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Nicole & Josh for choosing us to be part of
this incredible, amazing day with all of you!! Your enthusiasm and sense of
humor was so easy for us to capture every moment of this happy day! I
personally want to adopt you both!!!

We wish you all the health, happiness and love you both deserve!

Nicole and Eric’s Wedding

The Crooked Lake House

Picture perfect weather

Ceremony by the water

Three dogs

Awesome Family and Friends


All of our weddings lately, have seriously been memorable, with no exception
for Nicole & Eric! Starting out at Nicole’s parent’s home where hair and
make-up continued while we took care of our preliminary work. Nicole looked
beautiful in her gorgeous dress as she walked downstairs for all to admire!
After we finished with Nicole, parents and bridal party we were off to the
magnificent Crooked Lake House to get a head start before we met up with
Eric, his best man, the groomsmen and his two dogs! Guests were starting to
arrive and shortly after that Nicole also arrived. No first look, so the
ceremony began and I had the opportunity to watch Eric as Nicole walked down
the aisle with her father and it was a very special moment! After a
beautiful ceremony, guests were invited to the cocktail hour while we
continued outside on this beautiful day with family photos, bridal party and
just bride and groom.

As everyone continued enjoying the cocktail hour, we got started capturing
everything in this magnificent ballroom that looked enchanting!

Now guests were invited into the ballroom to start the rest of this happy
celebration for Nicole & Eric! After introductions, first dance, parent
dances and some very funny toasts, a delicious dinner was served by the very
attentive staff at the Crooked Lake House, while Marty and Janice made sure
everything was perfect! This group was ready to party and dance the night
away, so it was time for DJ Paul Malo to take over and as always, he had the
house rocking for all to enjoy!

Michael and I just want to thank you for choosing us to capture this very
special day for you and your families! It was as much fun for us and from
what I observed over the top for the two of you! We truly appreciate your
enthusiasm and willingness to allow us to make sure you will look back at
this joyful day as you turn the pages of your wedding album.

Congratulations, Nicole & Eric!

May your life together be filled with health, happiness and the love you
have for each other and your puppies!

Glen Sanders Mansion

Filed under: The Glen Sanders Mansion — admin @ 2:31 pm

We have the best brides and grooms! Every wedding is different except for
one similarity…we always have so much FUN thanks to the enthusiasm of the
wedding couple, bridal party and the families and friends!!!! It is a
joyful, happy time to celebrate the bride and groom and that is exactly what
we see!!!

From the beginning of our day starting at Jennifer’s parent’s home, we knew
right away there would be happiness, laughter and happy tears! Arriving at
the house, hair and make-up continued which gave us the opportunity to get
started on our preliminary photographs until the time Jennifer was ready to
finish getting ready and show off her gown to her family and she looked
radiant! After finishing up with some family pictures and bridal party, we
were off to St. Ambrose Church to meet up with the very handsome Shaun and
his two best men, (his brothers) and his groomsmen. Jennifer arrived in the
limo with all her girls and with everyone in place, time to get this happy
couple married! When family photographs were completed at the church we
continued our day at the magnificent Glen Sanders Mansion on the Mohawk
River. While guests were enjoying the cocktail hour on the patio, we
continued with the Jen, Shaun and the entire bridal party with plenty of
time for them to join the cocktail hour!

The ballroom looked beautiful as guests found their tables to get ready for
the introductions, which were hysterical! First dance, toasts, dinner, cake
cutting and later in the evening a very special surprise dessert display on
the patio was enjoyed by all! One more special photo that Jen requested and
that was the sparklers that spelled out LOVE! So much fun getting that

Thank you Jen and Shaun for choosing us to capture this amazing wedding day
for all of you! It was so much fun and we felt like part of the Sidoti
family for the day!

Congratulations Jennifer & Shaun!

We wish you all the ingredients for a happy marriage; health, happiness,
laughter and love!

Michael and Nancy
