Congratulations to Jennifer and Carlos, who got married on October 3, 2015! I enjoyed documenting your wedding! With Normanside Country Club, Lipstick N Lashes Beauty Bar and Boutique, CT Productions Mobile DJ Services, LaRose Media and Nectar Custom Floral Designs LLC. Thanks to Jay Zhang for second shooting.
Jen, a Saratoga native, first met Colombian-born and Ohio-raised Carlos on a date at Panera. After getting frozen yoghurt to end their date, Jen called her mom right away, exclaiming, “I met the guy I’m going to marry!”
Their wedding took place in downtown Albany at the grand Cathedral of Immaculate Conception and a wonderful reception followed at the Normanside Country Club with 116 of their closest friends and family. There was a great feast prepared to celebrate their matrimony, as well as lots of dancing complete with a DJ. The food consisted of filet mignon, a chicken dish, and a salmon dish. Jen and Carlos first danced together as husband and wife to Kip Moore’s “Hey Pretty Girl.” Their cake was pumpkin flavored with cream cheese frosting.
Carlos’s storybook proposal took place in the rain during a New York City weekend get away, outside a restaurant in Central Park. He had Jen’s family fly up from Florida, and they all hid behind an outdoor bar that was part of the restaurant’s outdoor patio. Carlos and Jen stood beneath an umbrella as the rain poured down around them.
The bride wore a strapless dress with a belt around the waistline, and the skirt of her dress remained tight until about mid-hip where it gently flared out. She also wore a train and veil, and had a beautiful hairpiece made from her mother and grandmother’s dress (her mother wore her grandmother’s dress on her wedding day). Jen wore the hairpiece in place of the veil during the reception. Carlos wore a black tux with a silver tie and a silver vest.
