Bailey and Corey were married at the Canfield Casino on January 1, 2016. I had the absolute joy of starting out my New Year with one of the most electric couples I have had the pleasure to work with. Bailey and Corey were so excited to be celebrating their marriage (just wait until you see the dance floor photos! These guys have got some moves!!)
Their day began with Kyle Ann Garcia at the Saratoga Hilton who made sure Bailey and her ladies were all dolled up and looking gorgeous. Bailey wore a stunning gown with an open back that fit her to a “T”. Her maids all wore gorgeous neutral gowns each with a different neckline to reflect their personal style. Neutral colored bridesmaids gowns are on trend for 2016 and I am in love!! Evergreen bouquets created by Price Chopper were the perfect compliment to a winter wedding and the ladies’ gorgeous dresses. If you ask Corey what his favorite part about the wedding is I’m sure he would tell you all about his awesome custom made blue suit!! It is so great to see grooms excited about the details, it’s your day too gentleman!!
As soon as the group was ready we headed over to the Canfield Casino for the first look. Linda Conley captured all of the joy and emotion in this moment perfectly. It is always an honor to witness such intimate moments on the wedding day. After Linda caught some great shots of Bailey and Corey their bridal party came outside to brave the cold with smiles! Inside guests began to arrive for the ceremony officiated by Bailey’s sister. My favorite ceremonies are those officiated by family members – they make it so memorable. As soon as the “I Do’s” were spoken two guests in the crowd jumped up with giant cut out heads of the groom to cheer!! It was such a fun surprise for the groom and the guests!! (later in the evening those giant heads ended up in the photo booth and on the dance floor!! What Fun!!)
Bailey and Corey chose to have a cocktail style reception to maximize their time on the dance floor with the New York Players. You may wonder what that means for the evening’s cuisine. Bailey and Corey worked with Kim Klopstock owner of Lily and the Rose Catering to create a unique menu with passed hors d’oeuvres and stations filled with their favorite foods! Guests enjoyed a wide variety of delicious bites created with fresh and local ingredients. As soon as formalities were finished Bailey laced up her sneakers and we pulled out all of those bobby pins (sorry Kyle Ann Garcia!) so she could hit the dance floor and bust a move!
This wedding was such a pleasure to coordinate and I am so blessed to have worked with an amazing crew! Kyle Ann Garcia knocked the ladies hair and make-up out of the park. The New York Players kept everyone on the dance floor all night until they needed a break to enjoy the wonderful stations by Lily and the Rose. Crystal Riley at the Queensbury Price Chopper always wows us with her floral designs. Thank you Upstate Transit for getting all of the guests back to their rooms safely and last but certainly not least, Linda Conley for capturing all of the smiles, laughter and happy tears of the day!!
Bailey and Corey it was both a pleasure and an absolute blast to coordinate your wedding!! I wish you both all of the happiness in the world!!
