Stherlyne + Fritz | Wedding Highlights \\ Albany, NY

September 28, 2014  •  13 Comments

I had been waiting for this day to come since early this year! Fritz & Stherlyne's wedding was supposed to be the highlight of my wedding season! So naturally, I was quite nervous. But I took one look at Stherlyne and how beautiful she looked in her dress and my nervousness was replaced by excitement.

I'd always heard of couples praying together before their ceremony without seeing each other, so I was quite excited to hear that Stherlyne and Fritz would be doing the same on their wedding day.

The look on his face when he turned around and saw his bride was priceless! I don't think I've ever seen this guy so happy :)

Stherlyne's vows were in French, so I didn't understand what she was saying. But based on the reaction from the groomsmen, who were closeby, her words were beautiful. Fritz's vows were beautiful as well! Very touching.

Fritz is a clown. When the pastor gave him permission to kiss his bride, he lifted up Stherlyne's veil and took a peek underneath. HAHAHA!

The wedding reception was the most fun I'd ever had at a reception. The MC's announced a game in which each table had to come up with a rap or song that had 1) The couple's names, 2) God's name, and 3) the word "love" in it. Then the couple would have to kiss. I didn't really expect the results to be so funny! Volcy's rap was on point. Had everyone from Canada cheering :)

Fritz, the king of epic parties, getting his groove on. I had never seen Stherlyne dance before, and it looked like she was really enjoying herself!

Fritz surprised everyone with an old video of him singing with his sisters at a wedding a loooooong time ago. He then invited them to do the same song again, live.

Then he did a little solo that brought tears to his bride's eyes. Look at her! She's pretty even when she cries!!

Oh my gosh, this was too funny! Fritz crawled to Stherlyne's garter. But when he finally got it, he ran back to go under her dress and someone had to pull him out. HAHAHAHA!!!

The guy who caught the garter... oh my goodness. I couldn't stop laughing.

He did this elaborate dance for Rebecca, who caught the bouquet. When it was finally time for him to put the garter up her leg, he simply handed it to her and then they hugged. Isn't that sweet? :)
