Samantha and Michael are truly a match made in heaven. It’s too hard to even imagine these two before they met each other. Since the very first moment that I met them, I knew they had the kind of love that their great grandchildren will be talking about. They have the kind of love that you read in novels. They met 11 years ago when Samm’s matron of honor invited some guy friends to join them at a Goo Goo Dolls & Counting Crows concert. They met and the stars aligned. Mike had no way of writing down Samantha’s number so she challenged him to remember it. The next day she received a text, “I remembered.” I love that story!!!
Samantha and Michael adore the Saratoga Springs area and knew that they would be having a wedding there. And I must say, they had the coziest wedding with such timeless beauty. They were married at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. Where they blew me away with their vows. I could relate so much to the rawness of their words. It was an honor to witness them.
The entire day was filled with beautiful natural light turned into candle light as the sun set. All of Samantha and Michael’s guests cozied into the Hall of Springs for o’dourves and cocktails. The venue looked incredible with stunning flowers, decor, and lighting. I loved capturing Samm and Mike’s reaction to seeing it for the first time. The reception started out with a bang as everyone was introduced. And celebrating Samantha and Michael was an easy thing to do. Everyone danced their hearts out, enjoyed delicious food, and celebrated their marriage into the night! It was a day of perfection for Samantha and Michael and I couldn’t be any happier for them, congratulations!
