courtney & jeff: glen sanders mansion

In typical Labor Day fashion we had two weddings last weekend and Courtney & Jeff’s was our Sunday wedding. It was again another awesome day with nothing but blue sky’s. Really the whole day into night was just perfect. Courtney & Jeff live in Boston and pretty much planned their whole wedding from out of the area. They tied the knot at the First Reformed Church in the Stockade section of Schenectady. What an awesome looking church, I really enjoyed shooting there. After that we took some photos outside the church and in the surrounding areas. We found an Elario red wall and took a few shots there but then it was off to Glen Sanders Mansion for cocktails. Courtney & Jeff also scheduled a little extra time between the ending of their ceremony and the beginning of cocktails. I’m digging this trend. The room looked awesome and had the monogram on the dance floor which is a nice little touch. DJ Paul Malo (518.383.3978) had all of the guests dancing from the very first dance set of the evening. The good thing about out of town peeps is they party their butts off. After dinner Courtney & Jeff surprised everyone with a serious salsa dance. Who knew Jeff had it in him? These guys got some crazy moves. Did I mention videographers Cheryl & Amanda from CASL Productions were on the scene? We just worked with them the day before but twice in one weekend was a nice treat. This really was a great wedding with some awesome people to end the summer with. Bring it on fall! Courtney & Jeff, congrats to you both and thanks for having us!

Enjoy, leave love,

From the start of the day Courtney was ready to go!

She made an awesome bride.

Personally I think four is a perfect number for bridesmaids/groomsmen.

Here’s an HDR of the church.

A fun ring shot. I had to duck so I wasn’t in the reflection but I decided to hop in one for fun.

I call this one “going to the chapel”

What an awesome church!

One of my favs.

Here’s that red wall.

The newly renovated room at the mansion.

Back outside for some of that good good light. My #1 fav all day.

Its like the same light from their engagement session.

A spin off of the shot above.

Got any chips for that salsa? How fun is this dress? I think Courtney might start a trend here.

So went outside for more!

I’ll close with this image. I love the new entrance at the mansion, so nice.

next one
