It’s never to late to blog about an awesome wedding at the Glen Sanders Mansion that took place on June 8th, 2013. We had the distinct pleasure of photographing the wedding for Allison & John Lomascol and created some great images that we wanted to share with everyone. First of all their wedding day was absolutely beautiful with near perfect weather. Allison looked radiant and had a smile that could melt your heart. John was very easy to work with and all of the groomsmen made the whole day fun. We love photographing weddings and telling their “story” by capturing and creating images the evoke emotion.
Here is their story…
Allison’s dress was unique and absolutely stunning! Thoughts and Best Wishes provided the dress and Allison modeled it gracefully.
This photo was actually taken towards the end of the evening when Allison & John went back to their suite at Glen Sanders Mansion where Mazzone Hospitality surprised them with some champagne and desserts. I could not resist photographing the wedding rings on top of a Cannoli covered with milk chocolate chips! Yum!
I love her smile and the way her nose crinkles a little when she laughs. Here are a few photos of her and the bridesmaids in their “wedding robes” toasting to a great day!
All of the girls and even the Moms had personalized champagne flutes, how fun. I love the color and the bridesmaids shoes all lined up to go.
I absolutely love this image of Allison getting ready with her dad (teary eyed) watching her from the back of the room. They grow up so fast and before you know it you’ll be walking them down the isle. I love moments like this at a wedding.
We all know that guys getting ready on the wedding day have it easy and when they see some of the “behind the scene” photos they usually say, “Wow, I had no idea it was such a production!”
Love the downstairs bar at the Glen Sanders Mansion, it has such a European Pub feel to it. I love the attitude in this image, Allison definitely “rocked it!”
Here the girls were having a little fun, but the best part was when one of them “accidentally took a shot,” the look on her face was priceless! Which one you ask, I’m sworn to secrecy!
Here are a few of my favorite images of Allison, stunning right? Sometimes clients get hung up on their smiles or expression, I believe that they should relax and not think about it. Images like this are sophisticated and elegant.
Bam! That’s right ladies and gentleman, Allison looks like a professional model in this photo. XOXO – Make-up by the talented Jennifer McCarthy Norton with True Grace Makeup!
We just had to take her out by the water for a few and love the one Wanda photographed through the doorway.
It’s about that time, off to the church we go. Here the guys are just chillin, waiting to enter the church for the ceremony. Like I said before, the guys were easy to photograph and posed like pros for a few before heading into the church.
One of the greatest moments, that always takes are breath away… the bride being escorted down the isle by her dad.
From this day forward… I love classic photographs like this, they are timeless.
St. Johns in Schenectady is one of my favorite churches and I never get tired of that vaulted ceiling. Just beautiful.
Many of you know that I love to capture silhouettes… I love this one!
Off to the reception we go, but let’s sneak in a few limo photos. We love the one with John’s reflection in the window!
What a great expression, captured at just the right moment, I’m sure Allison & John will treasure this one for many years to come!
This is my “Oh What A Feeling” photo!
Don’t worry about those storm clouds in the background, it totally missed us!
A few fun candid’s with the bridal party. The guys were totally rocking those special cufflinks. “Wonder Twin Powers Activate!”
This kiss was so hot it crack the lens on my glasses!
The crew aka “The Bridal Party,” thank you Mallory, Kristin, Michele, Marissa, Shannon, Kristin#2, David, Josh, Adam, Matt, Garrett, Shazaan, Allison & John! Did I miss anyone?

I loved how the head table looked at the wedding… magical!
What time is it? It’s PARTY TIME!! Right from the get go Vinny from Cool Cat Entertainment had everyone on the dance floor getting “JIGGY” with it!
OK, everyone is feeling the love now!
First Dance images are some of my favorite moments from a wedding, the smiles on both John & Allison here says it all!
Toasts at a wedding are unpredictable and you never know what to expect, from emotional to kidding with the Groom. I love the different array of images in this series.
The traditional parent dances always make for some memorable moments. Allison’s Dad is so happy in these images and I love the way he looks at her. You can completely see how proud he is of Allison.
I just love the emotional hug that John’s Mother gave him as they walked onto the dance floor. Priceless!
OK, so the whole night the dance floor was packed and everyone had a crazy good time. Here are just a few highlights!
I love how they are about to cut the cake here, with such surgical perfection and a serious demeanor.
Now for some crazy fun and a few surprises. Allison surprised John with a special cake and John surprised Allison with one too!
As the Hulk would say, “Puny humans… Hulk must smash cake!” After eating it of course!
Special moments and unforgettable good times.
Dessert time is always popular at the Glen Sanders Mansion and I love how they pay attention to the littlest of details during the couples day.
This photograph was taken in complete blackness with no other light source, John & Allison had no idea what I was doing but the look on their faces when I showed them the photo was awesome!
Back to the suite for one last photo and a clothing change for Allison. A classic look for the newly married couple. Congrats!
Thank you Allison & John for entrusting us with capturing your wedding memories, you were a pleasure to work with and hope you enjoy the images for many years to come! We look forward in creating a beautiful wedding album for you!
Imagine! what we can CREATE for YOU!
