Eric and Dana’s flawless Downtown Albany Wedding was a dream come true.

From the very beginning, I was dazzled by Dana’s homemade bouquet, which featured sparkling accents. All the other flowers were from Flowers Forever by Linda. Her lacy, delicate dress is from Bridal Gallery by Yvonne, and True Grace Makeup supplied Dana’s classically beautiful hair and makeup.

While Dana prepared for her big day with the help of her mother and bridesmaids, Eric was getting ready, too. I love seeing couples like Dana and Eric glow with excitement all morning long!

First look in Downtown Albany

The couple kicked off their Downtown Albany wedding with a sweet first look. Their dog came along for the surprise, too! I doubt anything could have prepared Eric for the sight of Dana, with her lacy train and flowing veil. Their pup seemed pretty delighted, too! I enjoyed working alongside Best Bytes Media, who created the couple’s wedding video, to help commemorate this moment.

Eric and Dana took advantage of their downtown backdrop with lots of portraits. First stop: Downtown Albany’s iconic plaza.

The romantic ceremony

It was time for the big moment: the couple’s gorgeous ceremony at The State Room. Ethereal decor in white, gold, and rose tones set the mood. Family and friends shed more than a few happy tears!

Afterwards, Dana and Eric simply radiated joy. Naturally, we made time for some more portraits. Just look at them… you can’t fake this kind of happiness!

A glamorous reception

Meanwhile, the staff at The State Room whisked the pair’s thoughtful details into place. White, gold, and rose tones carried into the reception with glamorous centerpieces and shining accents on the cake. Finally, it was time to let loose and dance!

Magical nighttime portraits

When night fell, we set out to snag a few more portraits with Downtown Albany as a backdrop. After all, these are the memories Eric and Dana will have forever! I think this photogenic pair might have a hard time choosing which ones to display.

In the end, it was a perfect Downtown Albany wedding. I wish Dana and Eric all the happiness in the world as they begin this chapter of their life together.
