Hi! It’s great to see the capital district board called out seperately from the other CNY board! I’m getting married in Waterford, NY with a reception in Troy in August. I live in Chicago now, so I’m planning from Out of Town and would love to hear advice from others on here.

I’m getting married June 14 in Silver Bay (on Lake George).  Not technically Capital Region but I grew up outside Albany and many of my vendors are Albany based.  Hello all!

Hey turtle, I’m planning our wedding from New York City, so I am familar with your pain (although you’re even further).

 For our reception we’re playing it pretty low-key on Babcock Lake New York with a BBQ, swimming, basketball, and horseshoes. Our caterer is Olde Daley Inn, anyone ever had their food? I was kinda bummed that we didn’t get to taste any of it beforehand.

 I love our photographer, in case anyone is looking for one. Louis Torres from "Forever Platinum". Here’s his blog: http://louistorres.blogspot.com

Hey Kimberlee, I’m a Franklin Plaza bride also!! So far they have been just awesome.

Pattyb, I haven’t had Olde Daley Inn’s food in quite a few years– but if it’s as good as it used to be, you’ll be very pleased!

Hi all!

I grew up in Saratoga Springs but because summer weddings there are rather cost-prohibitive, we’re getting married in July 2009 at Birch Hill in Schodack. I’m also doing the Out of Town thing–I live in Connecticut.

Hi All!

 My wedding is in August at The Pruyn House in Latham (barn in the back).  Less than three months to go and still a LOT to do!  Looking forward to ideas-suggestions.  Wish we had this board 3 or 4 months ago!

Hey everyone!  I will be getting married in Sept. at the Shaker Ridge Country Club.  The ceremony will be in Troy.  Does anyone have a good/reasonably priced videographer?  How about any ideas for the rehearsal dinner for about 30-40 people?

Hi Ladies!  I’m so glad to see a Capital Region board too and that there are so many of us!  I grew up in Clifton Park and I’m getting married at the Hall of Springs in Saratoga in August.  I did a ton of research on vendors in the area, so I’m happy to share my thoughts with anyone.  Kaytee- Wedding Combo has great quality video equipment, experienced videographers (at least Sonja, who I requested), and spends a lot of hours editing.  Their website is http://www.weddingcombo.com/. For a rehearsal dinner in Troy, I have been to one at Lo Porto’s, which has good Italian food and good service, but it was closer to 20 people.  Tosca is another restaurant in Troy that is consistently been rated high and I’ve heard the food is great, so you might want to give that a try.

HI everyone,

 I grew up in Albany, but live in Boston now.  I’m getting married on 10/11 in Albany though.  The ceremony is at St. Mary’s Church in downtown Albany, and the reception is at Wolferts Roost Country Club.

I’m very excited to talk to you ladies about what your plans are for your weddings.

Kaytee –

I second LaPortos for a rehearsal dinner, I think its probably the best itailen food around.

There’s also Holmes and Watsons in Troy. Its more of an english pub. You can rent out the entire upstairs room, I bet you could fit 40 people comfortably. They give you your own bar with kegs.  It would be a great place if your looking for a more laid back setting, and I’m sure it would be affordable.

 Turtle – I figured you were using Franklin Plaza, I didn’t think there was really any other place in Troy. They’ve been really great for us too! They recommend really terrific vendors, our photographer and dj/ piano man are awesome.
