We are so excited to share the photos and film from this breathtaking winter wedding in Saratoga Springs, NY! It seems like just yesterday we were on the phone with Anna and Michael chatting about their day, the multiple venues, the phenomenal location for their get ready, and Anna’s vision for an epic first look with her groom to be!
Fast forward to a brisk January morning and the reimagined, iconic, The Adelphi Hotel where our Bigler Weddings photographers and videographers started the day with our Bride and Groom!
Where to begin??
The curated style of the rooms at The Adelphi is a photographers dream, we arrived as Anna and her bridesmaids were settling in with the amazing team from True Beauty Company ( seriously, if you haven’t met Lauren, Angie, and the team call them, they are the best!) for some glam time before she stepped into a ballgown style wedding dress from Kleinfeld Bridal fit for a princess! Meanwhile, Mike and his groomsmen were in “The Library” getting their photo shoot on as they were showing off their sleek classic look outfitted by The Black Tux. Upon the arrival of lavish florals from On Thai of Surroundings Floral Studio, Anna was ready for her first looks!
With anticipation, Mike stood outside the entrance of The Adelphi, facing historic Broadway waiting, glancing down at the time while his bride stood behind him two stories above gazing lovingly at the man she would soon marry. On her way to him, an emotional first look with Dad and reveal of her fully bridal self to her bridesmaids left the lobby of the hotel in an excited tizzy as Anna made her way out the front door to her groom. After some fun dancing on the sidewalk and taking a few photos together inside it was time to head to the Spa State Park for more photographs before heading to the stunning Arches Room at The Gideon Putnam for the ceremony.
The adventure did not stop there… our jaws dropped when the newlyweds arrived in a horsedrawn carriage to a ballroom elegantly designed and decorated by Fine Affairs, this amazing team not only paired with Surroundings used neutral tones to accentuate the natural beauty of The Hall of Springs but provided the wedding planning services as well! The evening continued to be a showstopper with music by The Accents, amazing dance moves, delicious dining and of course a cake from Mazzone Hospitality. We have a feeling this wedding will be giving us all the “feels” we need to kick those winter blues away!
