Jenna & Ryan – Saratoga Polo Association in Greenfield, NY

I’ll start with Ryan because I met him first. His best man got married a few years ago and I was shooting his wedding. At the reception this tall man picked me up, then took my camera, and started taking pictures! I thought the whole situation was hilarious and he continued to dance all night long with his best guy friends. Now that brings us to Jenna. I’ve known Jenna through her modeling career here in New York and also on America’s Next Top Model. She has worked for me for an art series and eventually became a dear friend. She messages me one day to tell me that she’s dating someone that I kind of know. Who? RYAN! The man who picked me up and started using my camera at a wedding reception. This whole thing is making me laugh so hard. Not only is it a coincidence that I know these two but I think they are perfect for each other! And of course, Jenna just knew the love between them was no joke. They were going to get married and she had to have me photograph her wedding one day. You can only imagine my excitement when the engagement happened!

Jenna and Ryan had an amazing wedding day in Saratoga Springs, New York. Ryan and his gentlemen were cool, calm, and collected. Jenna and her girls were excited and buzzing around getting ready. It’s always a room full of laughter when Jen McCarthy and Chris Burt of True Grace Makeup Artistry are there! Everyone finished up getting dressed at the Embassy Suites and then headed to Congress Park for some photos. The day was perfect with clear skies, warm air, and joyous spirits. Jenna and her father hopped into a Rolls Royce and headed to The Saratoga Polo Association for her ceremony!

Amongst polo players, a stunning flower arch, and their loved ones, Jenna and Ryan declared their forever love to each other. They delicately held hands through a beautiful ceremony given by their officiant, Margie Nowak. Many laughs, smiles, and adoring glances were shared and like that, they became husband and wife! The reception looked magical thanks to the talent of Rena’s Fine Flowers. And the party quickly began as Paul Knox of SCE Events introduced the wedding party and Jenna and Ryan! The crowd roared and after their first dance, champagne and fabulous food was served by Old Daley catering. As the sun began to set, toasts prepared the mood for the night which was heartfelt, hilarious, and fun! The dance floor quickly filled and never emptied the entire night. Jenna and Ryan’s people KNOW how to dance! It was an amazing time that ended with everyone going out onto the polo field to enjoy a fireworks show. The finale is best left explained by the last photo! This was an amazingly perfect day for Jenna and Ryan. Congratulations!!!
