Kristen and Austin’s wintery wedding day began at the Saratoga Hilton Garden Inn, where the couple got ready with their wedding parties. The bride and groom exchanged sweet letters and donned their wedding attire before heading to the Saratoga Hall of Springs for their first look. Under the arches of the Hall, the couple saw one another for the first time and Austin wiped away Kristen’s happy tears. A sweet formals session followed in the snowy Saratoga Spa State Park – shoutout to Kristen and Austin who were willing to go ANYWHERE for the shot! Did I mention it was also raining? This was my kind of adventurous couple!! After formals, we whisked the soon-to-be-newlyweds to their church ceremony at Our Lady of Annunciation in Queensbury – where a formal ceremony followed. After their first kiss as man and wife (and many cheers and claps form the crowd) the couple took formal photos with the bridal party before heading back to the Saratoga Hall of Springs for family photos during cocktail hour. Mazzone Catering did a beautiful job (as always) serving a stunning cocktail hour to guests and family. The reception followed, led by DJ extraordinaire Mike Garrasi from Music Man Entertainment. The wedding party made awesome entrances and speeches, but the show stopper was a speech made by Austin’s father. He told the story of adopting Austin from Chile years ago and revealed he had purchased a bottle of wine to give to Austin on his wedding day. The room was full of tears as the bottle was brought forth and presented to the couple!! Talk about planning ahead! Fun dance moves and cake followed as the reception rocked on under the columns of the stunning Hall of Springs. Best wishes to an awesome couple surrounded by lots of love!
