Christina and Mike met by chance at a mutual friend’s party. They were introduced and proceeded to talk the whole night. They continued talking after that and made the decision to date long distance as they were both still in school. Once graduated, Christina and Mike decided to move to Albany, NY together.
Mike proposed in Florida on their last night of vacation. The sun was setting over the water and as they were standing at the water’s edge watching the sun go down, Mike got down on his knee and asked Christina to marry him with the most elegant and beautiful ring. The ring was hand-crafted by an Albany local 3rd generation goldsmith. He gave Mike 3 drawings of band designs all unique and all originals never been crafted before. It is truly special and priceless to Christina.
Christina and Mike fell in love with Saint Clements Castle when they saw its breath-taking views and grounds. The primary color was a deep ruby with navy, silver, and black accents which was inspired by the castle itself. The décor was a combination of vintage, rustic, and medieval elements which was woven beautifully throughout their day from the bridesmaid’s dresses to the place cards and tablescape details in the reception. Everything came together for a classy and elegant look!
After a lovely outdoor ceremony, the happy couple shared a special, choreographed routine for their first dance. The band kept the guests on the dance floor all night long.
We enjoyed capturing their love and laughter and hope their wedding was all they dreamed it would be!
