Words cannot express how excited we are to blog this wedding! Mark and Meghan were a great couple to work with, but also good friends of their planner, Emily at Key Hall. They created a wedding day that was perfectly suited for the couple!
Meghan and Mark had Taia Younis of Inspired Occasions on hand that day to help with coordination and make sure every little detail was taken care of. I loved these adorable details, a sixpence in Meghan’s shoe for luck. Also, Mark had cufflinks made for all of his groomsmen with the latitude and longitude of the place where he met them- his had the latitude and longitude of Key Hall. So fun and unique!
Check out these amazing first look photos from Jeff Foley Photography!! Meghan and Mark are from Virginia and choosing a late March date, we never knew what the weather would be like. The day before the wedding it was looking cold and Meghan said “You know on blogs when they show a bride and she doesn’t look cold and they say ‘she’s a trooper?’ I’m not a trooper!” She totally was a trooper and the sheer joy and love shines through these images (plus with a shrug she knitted herself and a cute fur coat, she kept warm!)
Sometimes when you’re lucky at key hall, if there’s no show, or if the sound check is amenable to it, you can take photos in Proctors Theatre. Look at how amazing these images are!!! The show that night was a 60′s spectacular so as we were getting these photos the band was playing motown like “going to the chapel” and it just made for some unbelievable and completely unique shots!
Mark and Meghan’s ceremony was at key hall as well as their reception, what a gorgeous backdrop and amazing decor from Anthology Design Studio! And we have to mention the Mike Garassi of Music Man Entertainment! He kept the dance floor packed!
I love this idea for a guestbook, Mark and Meghan found vintage postcards of Schenectady and had guests write messages for them and then put them in a custom mailbox! (They also named their tables after places they’ve been together and used vintage postcards of each location as table numbers with an explanation of their visit on the back)
Having gone to college at Hamilton College in Clinton, NY- Mark made sure to include Utica Club on the bar for those guests who would be sure to miss it otherwise. It was definitely worth it, as you can tell from the groomsmen- because really, who doesn’t like UC?
One of the things Mark and Meghan were most excited about was their cake from Glen Sanders Mansion- their faces here sum it up perfectly.
The vault at key hall is an awesome spot for photos, whether it’s introductions, rings, or just fun shots- we LOVE these photos- it never gets old.
Congratulations Mark and Meghan!!!
