Jordan & Gage’s Wedding at the Park Theater Glens Falls

Fabulous Fall Wedding at the Park Theater Glens Falls

We recently got to work at a new venue in Glens Falls–The Park Theater.  I was really excited when our couple Jordan and Gage booked this event with us because I really wanted to see the venue and work there!  It did not disappoint.

Here is a short video of some favorite photos from the Wedding Day:

Glens Falls Is Perfect For a Wedding!

I personally love the City of Glens Falls–the architecture is really pretty and has a turn of the Century kind of vibe.  It is a great alternative to Lake George if a couple is looking for a more urban vibe for their Upstate NY wedding.  If you are planning a wedding in Upstate NY but don’t want to do a Barn or a Lake, be sure to check this place out.

I don’t believe in posting an entire gallery in a Blog Post–Below are just a few favorites from the slide show with a little narrative.

Highlights of the Bride Getting Ready:

The Getting Ready part of any Wedding Day is always transformational.  There is just something about a Bride putting her dress on that causes a shift in the day.  I usually start photographing details when I arrive to give people a chance to get used to me being in their space.

The architecture of the building where the girls got ready was very nice. I also loved the tinsel Peace sign above the door.

The Groom at the Park Theater in Glens Falls

My Second Photographer, Jim, captured the guys arriving and getting ready for the ceremony at the Park Theater in Glens Falls while I was with the ladies.  I like having a Second Photographer to do this so we do not have to rush the Bride at all.

Grooms have details too, and it is important to capture them.

The Wedding Ceremony at the Park Theater in Glens Falls

The Wedding Ceremony was in front of the Park Theater stage.  I liked that my Second Photographer Jim was able to go up into the balcony to shoot down while I was on the floor–one of the many advantages of having that second person there!

Formal Portraits

After the Ceremony, we went out back on the terrace of the Park Theater to do portraits of the family as well as the Bridal Party and the Couple.  This is the portion of the day that can be super stressful if you do not have a plan.  Luckily, we were able to accomplish all of the groups, plus the portraits of the Bride and Groom in a timely manner.   Having a list of the family groups definitely facilitates this.

We were lucky that the venue had a nice area for formal groups that had open shade.

We even had time to do some photos that were a little more fun of the Bridal Party.

The evergreen hedges were great for providing open shade and a nice backdrop.

The venue has a really beautiful staircase that leads down to a Speakeasy/Restaurant where the guests had cocktails.

Park Theater Wedding Reception Highlights:

The Wedding Reception is mostly candid photography–it is when the Couple and their guests typically let down their hair and have fun.  Except for the intro/first dance/toast, I personally like to be pretty unobtrusive.

The introduction is always fun.

I try to stay as unobtrusive as possible when photographing the First Dance. It should really be about the couple, not the photographers

The toasts are always fun o photograph.
