KRISTEN & CAM
Ana Greene Photography
Cam and I met the old-fashioned way - in a bar, in New York City.
We immediately connected over the fact that we both grew up in Upstate New York (just an hour and a half from each other!) before moving to NYC. We went on our first date soon thereafter and the rest was history.
After three years of dating, Cam proposed in a park in Brooklyn, with a beautiful view of the Brooklyn Bridge in the background. He knew I wanted a photograph of the proposal, so he arranged for some of my friends to be present to capture the moment and hand us celebratory champagne. The very next day we hopped in the car and drove to the Saratoga Race Course to continue the celebrations with family and friends.
We both agreed that Saratoga would be the perfect place to tie the knot, given our mutual love for the town and how easily accessible it would be for our Upstate NY families and NYC friends. After visiting a few venues, we decided we wanted something that we could customize and make completely our own. Fortunately, Cam's parents live 20 miles from Saratoga and offered up their backyard as our venue. We rented a big sailcloth tent and hired a team of amazing vendors to help transform the property into our dream venue.
We could not have asked for a more perfect day and are so grateful to everyone that was a part of it.
Advice to pass along...
Don't be afraid to ditch any traditions that don't feel authentic to you and your partner. On the flip side, add as many personal touches as you want. Your guests will love that the day is a reflection of you!
