Welcome to Ashley & Jonathan's Wedding photo blog. Here's a shot from their Engagement photo session in Congress Park, Saratoga last spring, preparing for their fall wedding. 

 Ashley and the girls were getting ready at Ashley's parents' house in Ballston Lake.  Love those monogrammed shoes!

Then, on to the church where Jon's mom, Diane assisted with his boutineer.  They were married at All Saints on the Hudson Church in Mechanicville, NY. 140010_DSC2799140010_DSC2799  Ashley, escorted by her dad, Greg!

145034_DSC3315145034_DSC3315 While Greg wishes Jon luck and welcome to the family, Ashley's mom, Joan on the left, let's out those tears of joy!

181505_DSC3076181505_DSC3076 181508_DSC3077181508_DSC3077  First dance time!

But nobody expected what came next!  Normally mild-mannered Greg burst out with some great dance moves choreographed to a montage of some great dance songs with Ashley!

202738_DSC3763202738_DSC3763 202841_DSC3262202841_DSC3262 202844_DSC3264202844_DSC3264 202904_DSC3268202904_DSC3268 202933_DSC3270202933_DSC3270 It was amazing!  Then, of course, he had to slow it back down again.  But it was a big hit!

203000_DSC3273203000_DSC3273 203018_DSC3795203018_DSC3795 And Jon and his mom Diane with the mother-son dance.

212306_DSC3891212306_DSC3891 212311_DSC3894212311_DSC3894 This unsuspecting gentleman caught the garter and knelt down to slip it on the young lady's leg, but Al from TS Ensemble had to alter his plan a bit with a blindfold first. 

212733_DSC3348212733_DSC3348 212740_DSC3906212740_DSC3906  The young lady got up and look who sits down!  Yes, the dance-master himself, Greg--father of the bride. 

212831_DSC3909212831_DSC3909 And he gets a quick lecture about where to place that garter!
