Christine & Colin
A Glamorous Night at Hotel Syracuse
Christine & Colin planned the most amazing evening at Hotel Syracuse this past December. They both started their day in separate rooms of the bridal suite upstairs from the grand ballroom at Hotel Syracuse. This space was really a perfect location for everyone to spend the morning getting ready for the big day of celebrating with Christine & Colin.
Shortly after getting ready, the bridesmaids and groomsmen separately made their way to Assumption Church on North Salina Street. The inside of this church is usually extremely beautiful - however, this time of year is particularly pretty, as it is decorated for the holiday season. The festive ambiance made the inside off the church feel particularly warm and inviting for Christine & Colin's ceremony. Friar Nader Ata performed a wonderful ceremony for all of the guests and Christine & Colin sealed the deal with a kiss!
As we all know, winter in CNY Can be -23°, 50° & raining, or a perfect 26° with light flurries. We were fortunate enough to shoot their photos in downtown Syracuse in that "balmy" 26° weather! Even though it was so nice out, everyone was definitely ready to head up to the 10th floor of the Marriott to party with Christine & Colin!
Throughout the evening, Salt City Sound Machine spun some awesome tunes and kept the room rockin! Christine & Colin received number of kind toasts (and maybe a roast or two) from their wedding party, as well as a heartfelt speech from Christine's father. For a first time in my time as a photographer, Santa himself made an appearance towards the end of the reception. he surprised everyone with some gifts for the kids and candy for the "big kids". Santa joined everyone on the dance floor for some killer air guitar before wishing Christine & Colin a happy marriage, and all of the guests a Merry Christmas!
