We had perfect weather (perfect for upstate anyway), with temperatures in the mid-30s and lots of warm sun.

Ashley & Eric at All Saints Church in Albany, NY https://www.caiteesmithphotography.com/blog/2020/12/ashley-eric-at-all-saints-church-in-albany-ny Ashley and Eric first reached out to me to shoot their Christmas wedding with hopes of doing their First Look in front of the Capitol Building Christmas tree. Obviously, I was super excited about this, especially when I found out the tree was lit in purple lights. Their ceremony following their first look was held at the All Saints Church in Albany.

Emily & David at Valley View Chapel in Ticonderoga, NY https://www.caiteesmithphotography.com/blog/2020/10/emily-david-at-valley-view-chapel-in-ticonderoga-ny When I first heard of shooting a wedding in Ticonderoga, my thoughts went to decrepit military forts and paper factories. Little did I know that there is an absolutely adorable stone chapel tucked away there. Ticonderoga is up in the Adirondack Mountains and from this chapel, you get a spectacular view of high peaks and low peaks alike. 

When I first met Emily and David, I learned that David was Emily's UPS driver and from then on, it's all history. They come from very Irish families, as you can tell from the kilts and the Irish whiskey. Their love and bond between each other and their families is incredibly strong.

Victoria & Nick at Franklin Plaza in Troy, NY https://www.caiteesmithphotography.com/blog/2020/8/victoria-nick-at-franklin-plaza-in-troy-ny To say I was excited about shooting a wedding in my home base of Troy, NY is an understatement. To make it even better, when I arrived to shoot Victoria and her bridesmaids getting ready, they told me they were all into cars and Subarus. If you don't personally know me, I have a deep love and passion for cars and specifically Subarus. I knew it was going to be a spectacular day at that moment.

Victoria and Nick's reception was atop Franklin Plaza's rooftop. It was a gorgeous, sunny, summer day. Dinner followed the reception and then we proceeded to Victoria and Nick's backyard reception.

Sarah & Forte at the Olde Breton Inn in Leonardtown, MD https://www.caiteesmithphotography.com/blog/2019/10/sarah-forte-at-the-olde-breton-inn-in-leonardtown-md I photographed Sarah's sister, Lizzie's, wedding last year at the same catholic church that they both grew up visiting every week. To have been hired by the same family twice felt like a blessing in disguise, especially because everyone was simultaneously beautiful and familiar.

The ceremony was held at the St. John Regis Francis catholic church in Hollywood, MD. The reception was held at the Olde Breton Inn in Leonardtown, MD.

Emily & Jory at Brown's Brewing Company's Revolution Hall https://www.caiteesmithphotography.com/blog/2018/11/emily-jory-at-browns-brewing-company-s-revolution-hall I've known Emily and Jory for years. Jory and I worked together at the same marketing company for a long time. Emily has a super sweet and bubbly personality that's simply hard to miss. Paired together, they're two peas in a pod. That's why when they told me they were getting married at Brown's Brewing Company's very own Revolution Hall, I was filled with joy. Revolution Hall used to be a local music venue for great bands and musical acts. For them to have their ceremony and reception there was the coolest.

Kimberly & Allison at Kelly Plantation in Destin, FL https://www.caiteesmithphotography.com/blog/2018/10/kimberly-allison-at-kelly-plantation-in-destin-fl I've been lucky enough to know Kimmy since birth, as she is my nearest and dearest cousin. We were best friends growing up. When she asked if I'd be the photographer for her and Allison's wedding, I was like "DUH!" 

Kimmy and Allison live in Houston but our family grew up along the Gulf Coast, visiting Destin and Orange Beach frequently. When they told me it was going to be a destination beach wedding, I was even more thrilled.

Kimmy and Allison exchanged vows on the beach in Destin, which was amazing even with the red tide. Their reception was held at Kelly Plantation, which is a gorgeous, coastal plantation venue.

Lizzie comes from an Irish Catholic family, as you can hear through her mother's accent. Her father is in the Navy, which is how they ended up on a naval base for their reception and party.

Tessa & Joey at Glynallyn Castle in Morristown, NJ https://www.caiteesmithphotography.com/blog/2018/8/tessa-joey-at-glynallyn-castle-in-morristown-nj When I was told I was second shooting a wedding at a castle, I was like "nah, no way." But when I pulled onto the street that Glynallyn is on, I was instantly convinced. From that moment on, I knew this was going to be an epic wedding.

Tessa and Joey planned to have their ceremony and reception at Tessa's private family home, Glynallyn Castle. She walked down the aisle to "Goin to California" by Led Zeppelin. Everything was grand and unique and badass.

Scott & Stephanie at Race & Religious in New Orleans, LA https://www.caiteesmithphotography.com/blog/2018/2/scott-stephanie-at-race-religious-in-new-orleans-la Having grown up right outside of New Orleans (Metairie and Mandeville, to be specific), I have an extremely special connection to NOLA.

Scott and Steph have been good friends of mine for years, bonding over our love for the New Orleans Saints and a good beer. I knew they were big fans of NOLA, but when they told me they were having a destination wedding there, I was at a loss for words.

They chose Race and Religious as their venue, which is a spectacular venue in New Orleans' Irish Channel. Everything about the buildings and property is simultaneously rustic and stunning. They held both their ceremony and reception on the property, with R+R catering. The Pontchartrain Hotel is where both the wedding party and myself stayed, and is also where the after party occurred. Specifically on their Hot Tin rooftop bar,

The Highline is one of my favorite places in NYC and it's a great (albeit busy) place to shoot! We also shot in Chelsea once we reached the end of the Highline.
