Desmond Wedding

On Sunday, January 31, 2010, Josh Desmond and his beautiful wife Christina will celebrate their first month wedding anniversary. It was a joy to create and officiate their Wedding for them. The ceremony and reception were held at their own Desmond Hotel in Albany on New Year's Eve! What a night to begin their new married life!

Everything was to perfection. The bride and groom looked handsomely stunning. The ceremony reflected their special love of each other, their family, friends and of course, their beloved dog (who was featured in a reading by Josh's Dad).

The Desmond looked gorgeous and the place was filled with joy. Connie Slocum, wedding coordinator at the Desmond, is always top notch and she gives such personal attention to her couples and treats them almost as if they are family. In this case, the Desmond family members are like family to Connie so it was nice to see her enjoy herself at the Wedding. I am always delighted to work with the outstanding Desmond staff.

Guests at the wedding were greeted with a choice of five champagnes upon arrival and after the ceremony they enjoyed delicious personalized cocktails and delicious treats before dinner. Another big hit was the photo booth Josh and Cristina provided from Saratoga Photobooth. Guests got to sit in the booth and smile and pose six times (see my photo with husband, Nick on top right). Loved ones and friends not only got to keep the black and white pics after the machine sent them out but a copy was also kept for the bride and groom. I'll bet Josh and Cristina will love looking at the pictures for years to come.

I was honored to be part of their very special day and their love story...................Cristina and Josh, Happy One Month Anniversar

  1. Nice pictures from Desmond Wedding. It was an interesting post dear. Anyways, I also want to host a DIY wedding in spring style but it is quite difficult for us to locate inexpensive event venues in New York City as the city is very expensive nowadays. I was wondering if anyone here can suggest low cost venues for a medium sized reception party.
