An Elegant, Romatic Wedding at Canfield Casino, Saratoga Springs | Judy & JT

June 3, 2016

The first time we spoke with Judy and JT was via Facetime from their NYC apartment and I was instantly hooked by her gorgeous ear to ear smile and bubbly personality.    JT is the perfectly witty compliment to Judy’s enthusiasm and they are both so laid back and in love that they fit perfectly together in a photograph without any prompting or posing.  They just make sense.  Their sense of style is ah-mazing (I loved every detail of this wedding) and the surround themselves with a huge entourage of equally hilarious and beautiful people.

Not only did we get to “work” with such a fun couple this weekend, we were also honored to be alongside such a rockstar team:

I adored the slate color of the bridesmaids dresses paired with the blush and pink tones!  We knew 2 piece dresses would be a hit this year, but we didnt know we’d start the season off with a show-stopper like this one.  Wow.  Stunning & Fabulous.
