A Downtown Ballroom Wedding at Franklin Plaza in Troy, New York

When Kelly Stapf (25, a Doctor of Physical Therapy) and Adrian Molina (28, a network administrator) met, it may have been love at first sight – but they’ll never quite be able to remember!“Adrian and I met in a Miami nightclub on my birthday while I was finishing my degree,” Kelly says. “It was a crazy night and I don't even remember meeting him, but after a drunken message, we laughed about it the next day and it was game over from that point on. After school, we decided to move to New York in 2013 for a change of scenery, and later that year, Adrian proposed on Thanksgiving. He told me he wanted to thank the family for their help with our move and wanted me to stand by him. Next thing I know, he was dropping to his knee and proposing -- he couldn't even wait until dinner!”With family being very important to the couple, they had to make sure their wedding venue encompassed a few points for a large wedding.“We decided to have our wedding at Franklin Plaza in Troy, New York,” Kelly says. “With a large number of out-of-town guests, we decided on a place that we could have our ceremony, reception and hotel for guests. “Since both Adrian and Kelly’s favorite color is green, they settled on clover, white and charcoal gray as their wedding colors. “I decided on white hydrangeas with silver bling and baby’s breath in my bouquet, while my bridesmaids had hydrangeas with green berry accents along with baby’s breath,” Kelly says. “Everything complimented each other perfectly!”And we hope Kelly and Adrian’s guests came to their wedding hungry, because the newlyweds pulled out all the stops for their loved ones with an incredible cocktail hour and after-dinner treat! “We believe we had an amazing cocktail hour and our guests rave about it to this day,” Kelly says. “We had everything from mini beer steins with mini beer-battered hot dogs to grilled cheese wedges served with a shot glass-sized serving of tomato soup. Lobster shooters and jumbo shrimp were all the rage, not to mention the chafing stations with calamari, pasta and dips for breads and veggies. And what's a wedding without an open bar? Plus, when there was no thought of more food and dinner was well over, a slider station with mini burgers, onion rings and fries came out. This was followed by chocolate shot glasses with cordials for dessert, along with the cake and sundaes in a waffle cone bowl. There was no going hungry!”
