Ela and Mark are a fun loving couple who truly deserve each other. They had a sweet first look at the Capitol Building in Albany followed by a photo session that Ela survived. (She confessed that she hates posing for pictures, but she seemed to laugh through most of it.) Their adorable children were quite the opposite though and served an extra serving of ham for the camera. The best part of the photoshoot was retreating to the party bus in between shots. There were toasts over shots of vodka and the party poles were fully utilized. It was soon time for these two to get hitched at The State Room. Their ceremony revealed the story of how these two met followed by the sharing of their own vows. We realized we were in for quite a party to follow when we noticed guests were welcomed into the reception with shots of vodka. The bride’s parents carried out the Polish tradition of the bread and salt blessing, and they were toasted by loved ones. From there on was pretty much dinner, drinks, and dancing. Later in the evening, Ela’s father took out his accordion and played to the crowd. It was a special night for a special couple. We hope this is just one of many celebrations this family has in store!
