Kristin and Andy – January 7, 2012

Kristin and Andy were married at Trinity Church in Lansingburgh and their reception was held at Glen Sanders Mansion in Scotia.  I am just a little behind on posting this since this wedding took place on January 7, 2012 (hey I’ve been busy!) but with this current heat wave it’s kind of nice to look back at a beautiful winter wedding.  The bride and groom hired me for their invitations and for day-of coordination, but I met this lovely lady way before she contacted me about her big day.  I first met Kristin when she was the maid of honor for one of my 2009 couples (remember Kimm and Jerel and their beautiful bright green wedding cake??) and then Kristin interned with WPP for a brief time that year.  So when she got engaged and was planning her wedding I was thrilled to help!  
This wedding featured a bunch of fun details like the vintage suitcase and luggage tags as place cards, fun scarves for the groomsmen and cotton gloves for the bridesmaids, sparklers when the sun went down, and of course a super surprise to all of their guests – a fireworks display at the end of the night.  It was funny, as all of the guests gathered outside to watch the fireworks I heard one guest ask another, “How do you pull something like this off?”.  The other guest answered, “You hire a wedding planner”.
Joining me on this wedding was a fabulous team of vendors!  A big thank you to Tracey Buyce of Tracey Buyce Photography who took these photos and really wowed the bride and groom that day.  Also thank you to Greg Frasier of Frasier Entertainment for being the ever amazing DJ we have all grown to love, Will Beyer of Nuvue Cinema for capturing all the amazing moments on film, Central Market Florist in Latham, All Occasions Limousine, and my girls Tina Barbato of Flawless by Tina for the girls’ beautiful makeup and Kristin and team from Timeless Updos for rocking the girls’ hair.  And last a thank you to Alonzo Fireworks for the best surprise that wedding guests could ever get (and earning me a compliment I will never forget).
My last thank you is of course to Kristin and Andy who allowed me to be a part of their most special day.  You two are a beautiful couple and I see nothing but happiness in your future.  Stay in touch, and congrats!!!
