Kristen and Sean – April 27, 2014

I had the privilege of coordinating Kristen and Sean’s beautiful wedding at Saratoga National on April 27, 2014. I could tell from my very first Skype call with them that they were going to be a fun couple to work with, and they certainly lived up that! It was evident being around them that they were best friends and their laughter and positive energy were completely contagious. Not only were they awesome people to work with, but they planned a beautiful wedding that had a few extra special touches that ensured every guest had a great evening.
Their wedding day started off with a touching ceremony led by Rev. Sebastian Pierro at St. Peter’s Church in Saratoga Springs, NY. Kristen looked stunning and was certainly the star of the show in her gorgeous gown, but the 5 little ring bearers certainly left their impression on the crowd. 4 of the little boys were Sean’s nephews, and 1 was Kristen’s nephew. They looked so handsome in their suits and even managed to walk down the aisle by themselves!
After the ceremony, Kristen and Sean made sure to spend some time with friends and family before heading to the Saratoga Race Track from some fun and stunning photos, taken by Tara Wiley Photography. They also made sure to take advantage of Saratoga National Golf Club’s stunning scenery with a few additional photos around the property before heading inside for their reception.
The band Jeremy Hoyle and the Strictly Hip kept the party going throughout the reception, and the late night snack table certainly helped to keep the energy level high. Guests who dared brave the cold had the option of enjoying hand rolled cigars from Habana Premium Cigars out on the patio, and many took advantage of the opportunity! There was also a beautiful tea bar where guests could bag their own tea blends to take with them at the end of the evening. It was a simple but elegant touch on an already beautiful evening. You could instantly tell that Kristen and Sean were thoughtful of their guests, and I can say with certainty that it was an enjoyable celebration for everyone that attended!
A special thank you to all of those involved in making this such a memorable event and for being a pleasure to work with. Beyond those already mentioned, Traci and the staff at Saratoga National Golf Club ensured a flawlessly executed event, while Make Me Fabulous salon created gorgeous looks for Kristen and her bridesmaids.  Tara Wiley was there to capture all of the special moments and details throughout the day, including the beautiful floral arrangements from Piccirillo Florists.
Kristen and Sean, it was a pleasure getting to know you during the course of your wedding and thank you for letting me be a part of it. I wish you both all the best in marriage and in life!
xoxo
Melissa
