Saratoga National Golf weddings are some of our favorites! Laura and AJ met while they were students at Union College and after graduating both decided to stick around Albany to stay together. They were engaged five years later and when planning their wedding, they knew they wanted to be married at Union College Memorial Chapel, a beautiful little chapel on campus. They followed the ceremony with a gorgeous reception at Saratoga National, one of our favorite local venues.

We say this all the time, but we just love working with Make Me Fabulous. Our brides love them and always end up looking like a million bucks! Laura was no exception, especially in her drop dead gorgeous dress by Renella de Fina from Lily Saratoga. When Laura found her dress she immediately knew it was the one. She canceled all of her other appointments and let the dress take center stage by planning every other detail of their wedding around it, from the invitations, to the flowers, to the place where she got ready that morning.

Our good friends Rebecca of The Pink Orange and the ladies of Paper Dolls of Saratoga nailed it with the gorgeous stationery and paper goods. As she always does, Kris Ann of Fleurtacious Designs blew us away with the gorgeous flowers.

Laura’s bridesmaids wore navy blue gowns from Alvina Valenta while the guys donned traditional black tuxes. Of course, a classic Clark+Walker group shot was in order for their wedding photos.

With her beautiful gown as her inspiration, Laura planned a classically elegant wedding with romantic, vintage-inspired details. Soft blush pink, champagne and ivory paired with classic navy set the tone and special touches like cute jars of Sundaes Best Hot Fudge Sauce for favors and pink roses on the cake from Mansion Catering ensured no detail was forgotten.
