Rachel and Russell’s Hotel Syracuse Wedding

I have finally had time to go through Rachel and Russell’s images and I couldn’t be more excited. I had the pleasure of second shooting this wedding with Lisa Walsh. The morning of the wedding Lisa and I met up with Rachel and her bridesmaids at Rachel’s parents house. We arrived bright and early and all of the bridesmaids were in the midst of getting their hair and makeup done.

Russell’s sister was radiating with positive energy and excitement the whole day!

The very talented Christy Robinson. She did a phenomenal job with Rachel’s hair for the ceremony and the reception.

I love this shot of Rachel’s dress hanging in her parents bedroom.

Putting the finishing touches on.
Annnd finally…Rachel and Russell together!
I’d say he looks pretty happy to see her!

Rachel and Russell were both so excited throughout the day. They were carefree and having a great time celebrating!
The reception was held at Hotel Syracuse.

The room where the cocktail hour was held had a trendy vibe to it. Rachel and Russell did a great job planning and the event staff did a wonderful job setting up. 

And the grand ballroom. It had its own timeless, elegant feel. It was truly breathtaking!
The event planner took Rachel and Russell in to see the ballroom with Rachel’s parents before any of the guests were brought in. I love how happy Rachel looks with the way it turned out, like it is even better than she had imagined it!

After Rachel and Russell were announced as husband and wife it was time to get the party started! Rachel is a dancer and she wanted something unique for their first dance. What started out as the waltz turned into “the evolution of dance.” The dance included clips from Elvis, MC Hammer, Michael Jackson, Outkast, Beyonce and more.

Can you name that tune?
Rachel said a few words about her relationship with her dad before they danced together.
Thank you to Rachel, Russell and Lisa!! All of the happiness to you both!
