Kicking off this week in style with a stunning black-tie wedding from one of our favorites, Jennifer Larsen Photography! I have to admit, seeing photos of the Hall of Springs in Saratoga brings back so many memories of my best friend's wedding, and it's just as stately and beautiful as I remember! Trish + Dan's wedding was classic, romantic and full of thoughtful, personal details that made it over the top. From the bride's off-the-shoulder lace gown and bold floral design, to the groomsmen in suspenders and of course, a first-look for the books... we couldn't love this wedding more. Brides + Grooms looking for a modern spin on classic, this one is for you!
From Jennifer: Trish and Dan are seriously the BEST. They're the kind of people who bring so much light to those around them, and their wedding day was no exception!
These two tied that knot in Saratoga Springs, NY at Hall of Springs, which was an incredible venue with tons of perfect photo locations. We did some epic golden hour shots by the reflecting pool, which was just pure magic! I think Dan's reaction to seeing Trish at their first look is probably one of my all time favorites - she literally took his breath away, and you can just feel all the love and excitement these two were feeling about starting their forever together. Their officiant was a close friend, which I always find extra special! The whole day was so full of love surrounded by lots of family and friends (they had close to 300 guests!) joining in the festive celebration.
One of the (many) things I loved most about their day was how they incorporated all of the little details that meant so much to them. Trish’s purse was the same purse that her mom and sisters all used on their own wedding day, she wore rings are from each of her grandmothers, and her handkerchief with sweet, little blue embroidery was from Dan’s mother. I love the family heirloom pieces that make a wedding day just that much more special. Their close friends and family also helped play a role in the details of their day by gifting them Mr. and Mrs. champagne glasses and a cake cutter set! One of the bridesmaids, Marisa, has an awesome photo booth company, Hypebooth, which of course made an appearance at the reception with a stunning gold backdrop! Another bridesmaid, Kristen, of Kristen Dufour Designs, created all of the beautiful paper goods! Trish & Dan's love for wine made special appearances throughout the night from awesome DIY wine bottle table number holders, cork seating cards, and wine barrel card box!!
