As I sit down to write my first wedding blog post of 2016 I realize that this year marks my 10th year blogging! Wow. Where did all that time go? 😉 Anyway its 2016 now, a new wedding season is upon us and we set it off with one amazing wedding. Congrats to Brittany and Spencer! Let’s get into it….

The temperature peaked around 60 degrees last Saturday in Saratoga. Not bad for March huh? I’ll take it! We set off the day at my favorite place for bridal prep, The Pavilion Grand hotel. Then it was off to Congress Park for the first of many photos. This wedding was interestingly different as Brittany and Spencer legit locked down the two hottest venues in Saratoga Springs. A first for us. The Canfield Casino was the site for their ceremony and cocktail hour, along with casino games! Then all the guests were bussed to the Hall of Springs where more food, fun and excitement awaited. There were a lot of moving parts with this one and thats where Christine Wheat and her squad came into play making this one run perfectly. Also some noteworthy players to mention are, Dave Bigler and the Fedora Five 😉 (i just wanted to type that) who looked like they were absolutely crushing the film they were making so be sure to look out for that one, good times fellas. The New York Players were in the house as well and never let that dance floor get empty! Jenny C Design and all the stationery she did was flawless. Make Me Fabulous rocked it because thats all they do. The florals and decor were on point, David and Renaissance Floral always brings it. I also have to give major props to Mazzone Hospitality for running basically two weddings at remote locations and not missing a beat. Everything about this one was just great, if you had a hand in making this one special stand up and take a bow.
Brittany, Spencer, Jasenski’s, Lanning’s, THANK YOU! You trusted us from day one to capture your special day for you. I speak for all of Elario Photography when I say I cannot thank you enough for having us. Setting off our 2016 season with you guys was very special. Capturing your day was just fun. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Congrats and best wishes!
I just want to end with this quote from Brittany and Spencer that really made my week. There is nothing I love more than to hear something like this from a couple because this very thing is what we’re about:
“Jp Elario & Joseph M Elario – We were so impressed with you all day!! Your enthusiasm and passion for your job is infectious and you shared in our excitement with us like it was your own wedding!! It made it that much easier to shoot with you!!! We can’t wait to see the pictures!!!! You guys are AMAZING!!!!!”
