O’Connor Wedding – October 9, 2010

Mr. and Mrs. O’Connor were married on October 9, 2010. They had a beautiful ceremony at the Blessed Sacrament Church in Albany followed by a reception at 11 North Pearl. These guys were so much fun to work with, and their friends and family really made me feel a part of the gang for the day. Katie and Neil chose some really great touches for their big day – including transportation for the bridal party in the Albany Trolley, a bag piper and a bubble send off as their recessed out of the church, a fun groom’s cake in the shape of a jersey from the groom’s alma mater, and a photo booth that became extra fun for guests as the night and the drinks go on. The flower girl added to the mix by playing with her bride and groom Barbis as the girls got ready. She was too cute! There were a lot of memorable moments from that night including the bride and groom updating their Facebook status to married as they took the trolley from their ceremony to the reception. Hey it’s not real until it’s Facebook real! I also definitely had a first from this group – an “icing” from one of the bridesmaids to the groomsman escorting her into the reception. She whipped out a Smirnoff Ice and made him drink the whole thing right there in front of everyone. It was a riot, and definitely a first for me!

But back to the wedding details… Katie chose purple as her main color with accents of golds and ivories. Their centerpieces, which were tall shoots of the large calla lillies, were the perfect touch to give weight and interest to the venue (which is a renovated bank with very tall ceilings). The dance floor was packed all night which is no surprise seeing that the music was provided by Vinny Liotta of Cool Cat DJs. These guys brought fun props and led some group dances which kept everyone going strong throughout the night.

But before I give my list of all the vendors at this event I have to give it up for Matt and Leah Bailly of Bailly Photography who did a ridiculous job photographing Katie and Neil’s wedding. The Baillys are fantastic, and took literally a gillion pics that day! There were so many good ones for me to choose from that it was nearly impossible for me to narrow them down for this post. Also working this event with me was Dave Bigler, the videographer and owner of Bigler Productions. I have seen the highlight video from this wedding and it was amazing! Pesha King of Flowers by Pesha, made the centerpieces and bouquets, the cakes were from J&S Watkins, and the photobooth was from Saratoga Photobooth Company.

This was such a rocking wedding and it couldn’t have been any better for these two. The day was filled with emotion and you could really feel the love that Katie and Neil have for each other (check out those ceremony pics – it doesn’t get any better than that!) Thank you guys for allowing me to be a part of your most special day!
