SKY Armory - Syracuse Wedding | Max + Abi

SKY Armory - Syracuse Wedding | Max + Abi

Married January 20th, 2018

Something I'm really excited about for all my 2018 weddings are the amount of new locations I'll be exploring. It's my first year of being completely booked for weddings (nearly 30 different couples.) With a few double header weekends and only a select few Saturdays off from May to November.... I'm beyond excited for this crazy adventure. SKY Armory was a location I have never been to until Max + Abi's wedding and I have to say.... I LOVED IT!!!! It was right downtown in the heart of Syracuse and the venue was incredible!

We started the day at the Marriott Syracuse Downtown where everyone was getting ready for the big day. The bridal suite was so glamorous and allowed us to capture some great getting ready photos. What I love about my couples getting ready at the same location is that it allows me to easily go from room to room or floor to floor. One of my favorite memories was seeing Abi look at the bridesmaid dresses all together for the first time. After finishing up at the hotel, we took a shuttle bus to the venue, which was only a 2 minute drive! Max + Abi decided to do their first look on the connected parking garage would be a perfect location and I couldn't have agreed more!! To read about their first look experience, CLICK HERE! We took all the bridal party shots and a majority of the family pictures before their ceremony. I loved Abi's idea of using biodegradable confetti! It made some of my favorite images of the entire day.

Their ceremony was full of laughter and included a creative poem by the groom. Good job Max!! I'm so honored that you both chose me to capture your wedding and the fact you were my first ever couple I photographed years ago made it very special to me. The day couldn't have been more perfect... I mean how often is it 45 degrees in the middle of an Upstate New York winter?!! Congratulations Max + Abi!!! I hope you love all your images!!!!
