Albany Wedding Photographers with Meghan & Brad at Christ the King Church & Appel Inn

February 11, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Meghan & Brad's wedding day started out a bit on the damp side, but dried out considerably as the day went on.  When we wanted to do the important things, like the First Look and some group photos outside the church, mother nature was more kind! Their friends and family all gathered at the magnificent Christ the King Roman Catholic Church in Guilderland for a beautiful ceremony. Then everyone travelled to Altamont for the wedding reception at The Appel Inn. Laurie and the team did an amazing job as always and DJ Todd Moffre kept the party going all evening long.

Scroll down to check out some of Meghan & Brad's wedding photos.

 

I Loved the fall colors with the rings!

Brad's first look at Meghan.  We set it up just outside the church.  The rest of the bridal party was watching from inside the limo, but Meghan and Brad had that moment to themselves.

Meghan's Dad had a surprise for her.  I think this was just about the moment that Meghan realized what was going on! Kevin told DJ Todd that he wanted to say a few words at the reception celebrating his daughter and new son-in-law, but wasn't sure he could get it all out the way he wanted to on such an emotional day.  So, he pre-recorded those words, and Todd played them within the song,"Daddy, Dance With Me", by Krystal Keith, during their father-daughter dance.

We met them in Saratoga earlier in the spring for their engagement session.  They framed one of the images from their session to put on display at the reception so guests could sign it.  And, if they wanted, they could swap out the engagement photo with one of their wedding photos and display it in their home.  211548_SKP7119211548_SKP7119
