New York State Museum Wedding with Nicole and Matt
This New York State Museum Wedding blog happens to be filled with some fun and “Super” surprises. I am so excited to introduce you to Nicole and Matt who recently tied the knot in Albany. Nicole and Matt are two fun, active and wonderful people. It is awesome how close the are with their families and friends. Their personalities came through with each thoughtful detail of their day and it was a natural fit for YTK to collaborate on their ideas for images. We could not have asked for a better day or for better people to spend it with. Congrats to you both!
I absolutely love this image of Nicole and her girls – giggles for days!
And to complement… Matt and his men.
This little prep shot was priceless – Matt’s sister Maria writing out her speech for the reception
Nicole’s favorite color is blue and she used it through out her wedding theme. She even found a dress that featured a baby blue bodice and hand beading.
The Cathedral of Immaculate Conception has amazing architecture. Nicole and Matt were really going for a ceremony site that had that wow factor and this venue was gorgeous!
The stained glass windows are so beautiful.
Surprise No. 1: Matt and Nicole gave the first surprise of the day with this saucy dip for their kiss. I love Father Dan’s reaction and you should have heard the roaring from the guests.
Having Albany as our backdrop was ideal for this New York State Museum Wedding – I love this shot with the capital – just a quite moment.
But this image is was the winner of the day…From the Plaza you get an awesome view of the Cathedral. #myfav

Surprise No. 2: Matt is really a super groom and super hero buff along with his groomsmen.
Surprise No. 3 Father Dan rocked a Super Man shirt for the occasion. BUT THAT IS NOT THE BEST PART… during the Mass he actually started humming the theme song to Star Wars and to anyone who is a Sci-Fi Action Hero, Comic Book loving dork (like me) made it one of the best and most fun Catholic wedding ceremonies I have ever attended.
Surprise No. 4 In addition to being a Super Groom, Matt also evokes the power of Spider Man and can hang from almost anything… His cell phone, however, is not so talented with anti-gravity powers.
Surprise No. 5 Nicole and Matt stunned all of their wedding guests with an incredibly complicated choreographed first dance. With Matt’s spidey senses and super strength he was able to flip, lift, twist and toss Nicole all over the dance floor.
He even did a little break dancing… boy got moves.
We had some wonderful speeches their siblings. They had the room in stitches.
And a great moment with the parent dances.
When the sun started to set we got some wild color put to the spinning style of Small Town Sound.
Lots of dancing and celebration at this New York State Museum Wedding.
But before the party was over we had to sneak outside to capture this amazing moon. Yes, that orange awesomeness in the sky was the “Super Moon” – pretty epic.
Thank you so much for having YTK capture your Albany Wedding. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness.
