Kelly and Jesse – September 26, 2015

Kelly and Jesse were married at the Lucas Confectionery (aka Troy Wine Bar) on September 26, 2015.  My apologies on all the late posts but this is another wedding I have been so excited to put up but time just hasn’t been my friend lately!  This one is worth the wait, though, because these two are awesome people and their wedding totally rocked!
Kelly and Jesse are super cool people, and instantly upon meeting them we realized we had so much in common.  They are both runners, Kelly is a fellow marathoner and Jesse holds his own in distance racing and in biking, and Jesse creates video games which is so up my husband’s alley.  They were Albany residents and we were into the same restaurants and bars which was cool.  Basically I am saying I loved them from the minute I met them!
Oh also I should mention we all were slated for the same upcoming races – Kelly and I for the Philly Marathon that November and Jesse was running the Philly half.  I “ran” into them for a fleeting few minutes before the start but was so thrilled to see they had a great race just like I did.  Running buddies are the best!
Anyway – back to their wedding – they hired me for day-of wedding coordination in order to make sure all of the pieces they had been planning came together smoothly and easily for them.  I had a blast working with Jillian at the Confectionery, and the rest of their vendors were the bomb, too!  This was my first time working with their photographer, Dianna Marr from Our Two Hearts Photography and this lady was so cool!  Not only was she a breeze to work with all day but look how amazing her photos are.  Quick shout out to Kelly’s back (omg lady) and a few shots that I snuck into!  DJ Stephanie Graham was on hand from Andy Pratt DJ Company – thanks for the great tunes and the great friendship Stephanie!  Flowers were by Tina McDonald at Florals By Design – Loved the succulents!  Their officiant was Jill Rafferty-Weinsich at Celebrations Beyond Belief.  Hair and makeup was by Sabrina Devine, guest transportation was by Brown Coach, and their cake was made by Amy Mears at Sweet Expressions.  
I was so thrilled to work a wedding at the Confectionery and Kelly and Jesse were the kind of couple that any wedding planner dreams to work with.  Thank you both for trusting me with your most special day!  I look forward to seeing you both around town for more beers and road races!!
