Ashley & Matt’s Riverstone Manor Wedding in Scotia NY | Albany Wedding Photographer Makayla Jade of The Harris Company

May 7, 2015

Ashley and Matt met in college out in Buffalo.  They dated for some time but things didnt get too serious (I’m convinced its because Matt was a party animal and Ashley couldnt handle is dance moves).  It wasnt until down the road Matt realized she was the woman of his dreams and the rest is history!  These two are one of the most photogenic couples we’ve ever had.  Ashley was hitting poses all. day. long.  I have so many great images, it was so tough to narrow it all down to one blog post.  Upstate NY was so fun, we toured downtown Schenectady and then the river side landscapes of Scotia.  Perfection!  We also worked with a rockstar crew on this one:

Conway Entertainment killed it.  They even had these cool glow wands so we could get a little crazy with light painting on the dance floor. Rustic pink and aqua Riverstone Manor wedding by Albany wedding photographer Makayla Jade of The Harris Company Rustic pink and aqua Riverstone Manor wedding by Albany wedding photographer Makayla Jade of The Harris Company Rustic pink and aqua Riverstone Manor wedding by Albany wedding photographer Makayla Jade of The Harris Company Rustic pink and aqua Riverstone Manor wedding by Albany wedding photographer Makayla Jade of The Harris CompanyThats a wrap folks.  Epic wedding, killer couple, awesome vendors.  I could have asked for a better wedding.  Thanks so much to Ashley, Matt and both of their families for having us on their special day.
