Leslie and Tom are amazing. Seriously. In the amount of time that I have gotten to know them through our first meeting, our engagement session (check out that session here), and their wedding day, I have witnessed not just their love for one another, but the fact that they are truly great people.
Their friends and family gathered from New Jersey and around Binghamton, NY for their wedding day at Brown’s Brewery in Troy, NY. It was the first weekend in May, but boy was it a hot, sunny day! When I arrived at Leslie’s hotel room, she greeted me with a smile. Her twin sister was there to help her get ready. It wasn’t just Leslie’s wedding day, but it was also their birthday! Tom was getting ready at the same hotel, in a nearby room.
Once they were both ready, they shared a little first look outside of the hotel. Tom jokingly practiced his “first look face” with me before we went downstairs, but I think his genuine face of delight when he saw Leslie for the first time is way better 🙂
Then we spent a little bit of time walking around Troy and taking some photos of just the two of them. Love this one:
Then we headed down towards the river for family formals and some photos of the bridal party.
These guys were so much fun!
Then it was time to head to Brown’s for their beautiful ceremony.
Then it was time for more photos of new Mr. and Mrs!
Seriously, how adorable are these two?!
I could have taken photos of these two all night, but it was time for their reception to begin! Leslie changed into a cute little dress for the party.
DJ Christopher Johnson of Love of Music kept the party going!
But, of course as the sun was setting, I stole the bride and groom for a few minutes to get those lovely photos in the golden lighting. So beautiful!!
I just love the red telephone booth at Brown’s. Definitely makes for interesting photos!
It was such an honor photographing Leslie and Tom’s wedding day, and getting to know the two of them. I wish them all the best in their journey as husband and wife!!
