We are really lucky to be Saratoga Springs wedding photographers. We seriously have the coolest locations for weddings ever here, and one of our absolute favorites is the famous Canfield Casino. A Canfield Casino wedding is always gorgeous because of the incredible history and architecture of the place. When we get lucky enough to work with an amazing couple like Kim and John, it makes it even better for us. We love when the ceremony and reception takes place in the same location so there is no travel or stress! To top it all off they did a first look so they got to go straight from their wedding ceremony to the famous bar at Canfield for their cocktail hour. The whole day was really relaxed and fun not just for the guest but for the entire wedding party as well. This made for some great pictures and probably some of my favorite photos of the summer season.
We started out the day at the Hampton Inn in Saratoga Springs right in the heart of the city where Kim and her girls were getting ready for the wedding. We love shooting the getting ready photos there because of all the huge windows and amazing light. We got to see our girls from Lipstick n Lashes performing some magic with the girls’ hair. Once they were all done Kim got into dress #1 of the day. A beautiful little ruffled number that fit in perfectly at Canfield Casino, add in a gorgeous bouquet from Frank Gallo and it was off to the first look. We love, love, love that Kim and John were so great in front of the lens and were willing to do anything to get great pictures, plus it really doesn’t hurt that they are madly in love. From the first frame the pictures were so full of love and beauty that we were jumping up and down at what we were getting! After some awesome shots with the couple around Congress Park and then some bridal party pics, it was time to head inside to officially get married.
Kim and John had a beautiful ceremony inside the Casino which was short and sweet and then it was off to their cocktail hour to celebrate. While Kim and John were enjoying hanging out with their guests in the bar the staff at Classe Catering were putting the finishing touches on the room. Once Mike Garrassi of Music Man Entertainment added in some uplighting the room was officially complete! It was a gorgeous sight filled with soft pinks and greens to reflect the wedding color pallet. Of course, we went out to grab some sunset pictures with that ridiculous Congress Park light also known as our favorite reason to shoot at Canfield. After that, it was time to dance the night away. Later it was time to change into dress #2 which was a cute little Badgley Mishka number perfect for some fun shots and of course DANCING! There is nothing that caps off a fun reception like the ultimate party dress, and Kim definitely had it!
