Date:  June 13, 2014

Greg, Joe and all the staff always make you feel special and goes above and beyond whatever your expectations may be.

Ceremony:  St. Joseph’s Church, Troy NY

Hair & Make-Up:  Molly and Gina

Music:  TS Ensemble / Al Santoro

Videographer:  Lovecraft Production Inc. / Mike Verenini

Florist:  Flowers by Pesha, Troy NY

Limousine Service:  Premier Party Bus

I remember when we photographed Jennifer & Brandon’s engagement shoot and nerves always set in a little bit and that is to be expected, but it gives them an idea of how comfortable they can be in front of the camera.  All I have to say is “WOW”, Jennifer looked and posed like she belonged in a bridal magazine and had no fear of the camera!  Sheer perfection from hair and make-up to the gown that looked like she stepped out of a bridal magazine! We knew from the very beginning of the day that this was going to be one of those weddings that would be non stop fun!

While Jen was getting herself together, we spent some quality time with Brandon and his groomsmen, left them so they could go to the Church and then we could spend time with Jennifer and her bridal party.

After the ceremony we decided to go to Sage College for our first stop for photo’s and then back to the Franklin Plaza alley and finish up there. This was another memorable wedding that The Franklin Plaza always has a way of making everyone feel like they are home!  After the guests enjoyed a spectacular spread at the cocktail hour, they were directed to the ballroom for the reception which started with introductions, first dance, toasts and as always a dinner that is top notch!   Time to get this party really started and that is where Al Santoro and his band TS Ensemble take over to finish up this wonderful, happy day!

Thank you, Jennifer and Brandon for allowing us to capture this memorable day with you, your family and friends!  Your enthusiasm and willingness to allow us to capture every moment of this special day for you both made this so enjoyable for us as well!

Congratulations and we wish all the health and happiness you both deserve!

Julianne and Lucas’s Wedding
Ceremony and Reception held at the Franklin Plaza

Destinaton wedding in Troy, NY
This is what the bride and groom had to say.

Well, we attended a wedding at the Franklin Plaza sometime ago and fell in love with the ambiance and character of the Franklin Plaza. It is something completely different then a venue’s on Long Island so we decided to make it a mini destination wedding.

The vendors were picked through a lot of online research since we were out of towners. We were literally obsessed and pleased with all our vendors. Everyone was so accommodating to work with especially planning a wedding 3 hours away. We seriously can not thank them enough!

Video-LaRose Media,
Hair & Makeup-Stiletto Salon,
Tux-Town & Country of Wantagh, NY,
Gown-Helens Bridal of Commack, NY
Officiant-Louis Zeppone of Hudson Valley Officiants
David-the Magnet Man
Vinny Vin of NonStop Music

From Michael and Nancy… Fun, fun, fun from the start of our shoot to the very end. Julianne and Lucas could not of had a better time at their own wedding. They offered us every opportunity to document their wedding day in every way they dreamed of. It was a pleasure to work for such a great couple. Now all you need to do is pick out 80 photos out of the 2500 we took for your book. Good Luck!

Thanks again,

Michael and Nancy

Venue: Franklin Plaza, Troy NY, Joe, Greg, Dom all the staff never cease to amaze me with their professionalism, the quality of service and always coming up with new innovative ideas to make every brides wedding as unique as they are!

Date: June 9, 2012

Wedding for: Erin & Josiah, They are the perfect blend; fun loving, same family values, caring, great sense of humor!

Videography: Al Woodard, Captured every moment of this special day!

DJ: Non Stop Music, Vinny knows how to keep a party rocking! This wedding literally did not stop dancing all night! The mix of music was very different from what I have heard at other weddings.

This wedding was non-stop fun from beginning to end! We started with Josiah and his groomsmen at his house and then onto the Hilton Garden Inn where Erin and her bridesmaids were getting ready! Many wedding couples are into the untraditional reveal before the wedding, so that is what we did for Erin and Josiah. At the hotel there was a gorgeous, vintage, mint green Cadillac waiting to take Erin and Josiah to the church. Before that, we took advantage of that car and had the reveal right in front of the car, amazing! With plenty of time to spare, we drove to Sage College where Erin and Josiah requested pictures with the wedding party. Time to get this couple married, so it was off to the Church for a beautiful ceremony. The rest of the day continued at The Franklin Plaza for some fun pictures in the famous alleyway and the boardroom. After cocktail hour and another fabulous dinner, all the formalities completed, you could not contain this party from sitting anymore, that is when Vinny got everybody out of their seats and on the floor dancing! Later in the evening, in case guests were hungry after all the dancing, there were stations set up with pizza, novelty ice cream bars and sliders!
Thank you, thank you, thank you Erin and Josiah! It was truly an honor and a pleasure working with you and your amazing family and friends! What a fun, memorable day we will all remember!
Congratulations, and we wish you all the health and happiness you both deserve!

Steevi Christina and Joe’s Wedding
Saturday, March 3, 2012

This is the first wedding we have in March and if this is any indication of how well our season goes, we will take it! From the moment we began our day at the home of Steevi’s grandparents, we knew it was going to be an amazing day of fun and laughter! After hair and make-up artists finished up, it was time for Steevi to WOW everyone as she revealed her gorgeous dress to everyone at the house. After we finished up with Steevi and her bridal party, it was off to St. Pius Church in Loudonville to find the groom and spend some time with him. Joe was also very excited about the day ahead of him and looked very handsome for his photo’s. The ceremony was so beautiful and Steevi and Joe were all smiles as they walked down the aisle for the first time as husband and wife!

It was time to get this party started, so off to the Franklin Plaza we went. As always, the room looked beautiful, the food was amazing and Greg and his staff were there to take care of everything! After all the formalities were taken care of, it was nonstop dancing thanks to the incredible, music from DJ Fernando! He just knows how to rock a wedding and keep everyone on the dance floor and just having fun!

We want to thank you Steevi and Joe for allowing us to be part of this happy day with you and your families! It was a pleasure spending this special day with you,
and we enjoyed your warmth and enthusiasm which made it fun for us as well!

Congratulations and we wish you health and happiness for many, many years!

Michael and Nancy
