View 262: Winter Bride

I was walking to the War Memorial to photograph a Syracuse Crunch game in mid-December when I spied TV cameras in the streets and on a boom high up in the air.  I also saw a beautiful wedding setup inside the OnCenter Convention Center across the street.  My interest was peaked by all this activity.

I came around the corner and there was a large motorhome with The Cake Boss decals all over it. I have heard of this show though I had never seen it.  Tuns out Celebrity chef Buddy Valastro (aka Cake Boss) was in town doing a show.  I could not find out if he had anything to do with the wedding.

After passing the Cake Boss motorhome, I came upon a horse drawn lighted carriage which reminded me of the one Disney uses for their night parades in the Magic Kingdom.  Sitting behind the driver was not Cinderella but a lovely winter bride.

She was gracious in letting me photograph her as a TV cameraman photographed me  doing it.   Another clue this wedding may have been part of the Cake Boss presence.  Click here for another photo of the carriage. (UPDATE: Have gotten confirmation the Cake Boss show was a coincidence but still in the dark about why all the cameras.)

    Aw, shucks. So no TV debut for ya,huh Scott? Now THAT would have been cool! In any event. catching a winter wedding is quite sweet and reminds us all of our “big day”. I’m guessing the TV cameraman was there simply to catch an “Awwwwww” moment for a news spot as not many folks arrive in a Horsedrawn carriage! (Coincidentally, I did on my wedding day and caused quite the commotion in town!) :-)
