Julie & Jimmy’s Canfield Casino Wedding Photos

We set the day off at the Gideon Putnam Hotel in Saratoga Springs. I love shooting at this place as it just has that classic old time Saratoga vibe. When I walked into the bridal suite and saw Julie and all of her beautiful bridesmaids hanging out, I knew it was going to be an easy crew to photograph. Once wedding coordinator Christine Wheat said it was time to get our bride dressed, we did so and headed downstairs dodging another bride who was in the house too. Before we knew it, the time for Julie and Jimmy to have a little hand hold moment (without Jimmy actually seeing her) came. That was cute if I do say so myself.

Next stop, the Canfield Casino for more wedding photos and a ceremony. Everything started perfectly on time, because when you hire a wedding coordinator those types of things happen. During the ceremony I looked at my phone and noticed some potential rain was on the way to us. Sure enough by the time these two walked down the aisle the rain began so we headed outside to a covered part of the park for all of our photos. When it was time to shoot just Julie and Jimmy the rain stopped, then started, then stopped. We did just fine in spite of a few rain drops. After that it was party time. The ballroom was ready and the New York Players took the stage. Mazzone Hospitality was in the house and as always served up some yummy eats for everyone. It was nice to work with “team fedora” aka Bigler Productions too!

Julie and Jimmy, thank you both for choosing us many many months ago for your wedding. You’ve both been a pleasure to get to know and work with. We all wish you the very best in all the years ahead. Keep smiling.

Peace,
JP

Earlier in the day I walked by this spot and thought to myself how great it was and having worked at the Canfield Casino since I was a kid (even got married here myself) I never saw this spot. Naturally I had to put Julie and Jimmy there!
