Winter Wedding at The Queensbury Hotel | Glens Falls Wedding Photos

A Winter Wedding at the Historic Queensbury Hotel in Downtown Glens Falls

What is more romantic than Wedding Photos on a snowy day?  I recently photographed Katie and Mark at the historic Queensbury Hotel on their wedding day in Glens Falls.  It was a cold, snowy day, but so fun!

Some people would be a little nervous planning a Winter Wedding in Upstate NY–but I say Go For It!  Especially if you are doing the entire event at a venue like The Queensbury Hotel.  Ceremony, Reception and accommodations for everyone in one place makes it really convenient for everyone.  No travel was required to get to the ceremony or reception, so the road conditions were simply not a factor.  In addition, the recently renovated venue has so many fabulous locations for Wedding Photos.  Below is a slideshow of some of my very favorite moments during the day:

Be sure to bring something warm to wear–the fur stole was Katie’s Grandmother’s.

Think outside the box. The hotel has these cool dining igloos that we used for a few quick night photos.

Stunning Wedding and it looks like a great time was had by all. These photos make me want to visit Glens Falls like yesterday.

Glens Falls is for sure a really cool town! It was built largely around the turn of the century and was known as one of the largest paper making towns in the country! It has a great downtown with awesome architecture–a perfect venue for a wedding any time of year!

Beautiful winter wedding! You captured such a complete collection for Katie & Mark to commemorate their day! Love all the unique spaces at The Queensbury Hotel! Lovely.

Katie and Mark were a dream to photograph and the Queensbury is a truly iconic Wedding Venue. It was built in the 1920s/30s and the new owners have restored many cool details while updating it for a more modern sensibility. Perfect for wedding photos!

Stunning wedding photography! I loved some of the unique perspectives that give you a feeling you are there to share the special moments of the day! Very fun photos!
