Last spring I went back to my old stomping grounds in NYC to do Jeven & Dan’s engagement session on the Brooklyn Bridge which was definitely a fun and interesting one that I won’t ever forget. If you wanna go back down memory lane for a minute with me you can check out a few from their e-session here. Now almost a year later it was time for their big day at Franklin Plaza in Troy.
It’s been a few months since we’ve done a wedding at Franklin Plaza and this was our first wedding of 2012 so we were anxious for this one.
As usual we captured prep photos of the Bride and groom early that day. Jeven and Dan said that they wanted to party for most of their cocktail hour so they decided to do a ‘first look” and get most of their formal out of the way before the ceremony. Great…I love it. Despite the wind outside being strong enough to lift up a small child we had a great time with their formals and even met a guy in the alley that offered Dan his bike (seriously…this happen).
At the reception our couple had a fun time courtesy of Vinny of Non Stop Music. Also, along with all of their guests they experienced our Photo Booth which you’ll see alot more of in 2012!
Of course…little girls need their hair and makeup done too…
It amazes me how the guys are always so relaxed before the wedding….
I love when I can get a shot of dad seeing the bride in her dress for the first time…
There’s our groom all ready to see his bride for the first time..
So, when you take wedding photos in the alleys of Troy you can run into some interesting people….like random dudes that offer up their bikes for photos. I always say that one day I’m going to write a book about the crazy things that I’ve experienced at weddings. Well, this would probably make the first chapter.
I’m always impressed at the architecture outside and inside Franklin Plaza..
Pretty cool setup for the reception.
You gotta love a reception with bowls and bowls of treats (especially Reese’s)
These guys had a great time…here are some party shots!
Jeven and Dan really liked the Photo Booth and their guests got to walk away with some nice prints right on the spot!
I figured that this was a great shot to wrap up this one…
If you were a guest at Dan and Jeven’s wedding then you can check out all of their photos here.
