Saratoga Springs, New York
QUITE THE CATCH
“Can I help you carry your bags and cooler?” said Christopher Latty, NYPD police officer, at his first encounter with OBGYN Dr. Paul-Ann Green. Accepting an invitation to Long Beach from a mutual friend, Paul-Ann was looking forward to some fun-under-the-sun. She kindly accepted Christopher’s generous offer and took note of the chivalrous detail. In introspect, Paul-Ann thought her new friend had coy looks and a charming smile.
After settling their belongings on the sand, Christopher invited Paul-Ann to a game of Frisbee. What began as a friendly match for recreational purposes soon became a flirtatious play at each other’s hearts. The unrelenting opponents lasted 3 continuous hours at what is now referred to by their friends as “the epic game of catch”.
“Elegant and airy” were the specifications Paul-Ann provided to us during our first meeting. “While we do not have a large number of guests, I would like for them to feel as if it were a grand affair. Have the details feel as big as our love.” We knew of just the location that would meet and exceed their expectations and personality. Nestled in the charming city of Saratoga Springs, lies a boutique hotel unlike any other. With quaint historicism and intimate setting, the Adelphi Hotel, was perfect. Mentioning the location to Paul-Ann triggered an immediate response. She was well acquainted with Saratoga Springs. During her time in medical school, Paul-Ann would drive out to the scenic town in search of a quiet nook to focus on her studies. Coincidentally enough, most times, that happened to be a small coffee shop across from the hotel. She quickly acknowledged the detail as a heaven-sent sign, thus beginning the plans for their memorable nuptials.
The strapless beaded-bodice, corset back bridal gown by Maggie Sottero left our bride in awe the moment she slipped it on at Kleinfeld Bridal.
A signature wedding scent from Jo Malone added a unique touch to Paul-Ann & Christopher’s wedding. The custom-tailored fragrance, an indulgence of pear, freesia, jasmine and spices, permeated the bridal grounds and engulfed the senses.
Guests gathered to presence the love between Paul-Ann & Christopher. With every passing word the couple became increasingly emotional. Every memory made, every experience shared and the thoughts of the many more to come brought tears to their eyes.
After the ceremony, the guests were guided to the cocktail hour in the Blue Hen. The glass house structure allowed for plenty of light to shine through in-keeping with the airy feel of the balloons and greenery. As the night soon appeared it led way to romantic star gazing and cocktails. Guests were asked to place their wishes for the newly-wed couple on the bridal balloons. Love was in the air!
“Elegant and airy”, We kept the design cohesive but different all throughout the spaces. Guests had something to look forward to with every passing moment. Paul-Ann & Christopher loved the overall feel of the evening.
The bridal party entrance set the tone for the evening. With flags in the air and a dance party selection of music, Paul-Ann & Christopher along with their guests celebrated the night away.
