Hudson Valley Wedding

Jenna & Josh - Mount Tremper Arts Wedding

Jenna and Josh's wedding is one for the books. Not only because it was an absolutely beautiful wedding, but because Jenna is an incredibly close friend of ours (and a great photographer herself!)  and Josh very quickly became a wonderful friend as well. They chose Mount Tremper Art as a way to give back and support artists. She's always putting other people before herself, even for her own wedding! 

The day began with both of them getting ready at the venue, Josh at their farm house and Jenna at their cabin. Surrounded by their bridesmaids and groomsmen, they had a super relaxed atmosphere with a touch of "let's do this"! For extra flair, Josh put on crane cuff links and a tie bar to match the handmade crane backdrop at the ceremony, while Jenna put on her beaded floral wedding dress from BHLDN. After getting dressed, Josh went to meet Jenna for their first look in a wildflower field with mountains in the background. It was a gorgeous scene and a perfect place to see each other in an intimate a sweet moment.

Next up was the ceremony! Two close friends played guitars while they walked down the aisle. After reciting their insanely sweet vows for each other, they were officially married! They went outside for a fun bubble exit with all their friends and family, leading to cocktail hour and then their reception in the open tent space. They set out custom designed glasses for each guest to use and take home as gifts, and on each table setting there were handmade cranes to continue with the theme. Following was their first dance, happy toasts, and tons of dancing! It was such a lovely day and we were so honored to have the pleasure of capturing it. Wishing Josh and Jenna all the best wishes in their adventures together!

Mark & Marc - Senate Garage Wedding

When you imagine a perfect match, you should think of Mark and Marc. Everything about them as individuals helps them balance each other out as a couple, a wonderful yin and yang. We started their wedding day by strolling around town, which was super adorable with its small-town charm. We then headed over to Onteora Lake for some gorgeous views and a perfect place to take photos.

Time for the ceremony! Mark & Marc’s wedding was held at Senate Garage in Kingston, NY and it absolutely blew us away. A perfect combination of outdoor ceremony spot, cocktail hour area, and reception space. The Fall leaves had covered up the grass in the ceremony spot with beautiful reds and oranges, and we were all heart eyes for it. The ceremony itself was just so sweet and filled with happy tears. We had to work hard not to cry ourselves! With a super fun exit, we moved into cocktail hour and then in the blink of an eye it was time for a grand entrance at the reception!

The night was filled with beautiful toasts, dancing for days, and delicious food. There were even board games set out that you could play at your table! At the end of the night, Mark and Marc cut their Star Wars themed wedding cake, and of course Mark had to throw on a Darth Vader mask! No other way to do it 😊 It was such a pleasure photographing their wedding and we wish these two all the joy and happiness in the world.

Cynthia & Max - Troutbeck Wedding

Cynthia and Max’s wedding at Troutbeck was one to remember. Joy was in the air that day: the lush outdoor greenery combined with the sunny day and the delight radiating from two happy to-be-wed souls created a glorious atmosphere. In this blog we’ve put together some choice memories of the couple’s special day.

Cynthia and her girls had a great time getting ready. The beautiful bride had carefully put together the outfit of her dreams: a cream colored pair of espadrilles from Castenar’s bridal collection, and a dress by Oscar De La Renta. The couple’s shared love for the countryside reflected beautifully in the dress’s simple yet timeless, floral textured design. The outfit was completed with a pair of chic pearl earrings from Cynthia’s mother.

From getting ready to the reception, signs of countryside were everywhere. The whole venue was lovingly adorned in a romantic arrangement of countryside flowers. We gladly took advantage of the spectacular venue and took some lovely photos of the couple outside during formals. The bridesmaids were adorned in gorgeous shades of delicate pink; each with their own unique style and design.

Next we moved on to the ceremony where Cynthia and Max were officially declared as husband and wife. The joyous crowd showered the couple in rose petals as hand-in-hand they walked down the aisle.

There is one thing which sets Cynthia and Max’s wedding apart from all the others: the sincere effort which was put into the finest of details. Take for instance the wedding crest: the piece beautifully captures important symbols such as a leaping trout, for Troutbeck, and lupins which were inspired by the place where the couple got engaged. Lupins were scattered on the field in Iceland and the flower has been special for the couple ever since. Wildflowers are another addition to the design – Cynthia used to pick them from Max’s farm for her parties; she even made a crown of them for her 30th birthday.

The crest also had pheasants, which signified Max’s favorite fall hobby, pheasant hunting near the farm. On top of all that, the Friday invitation also includes images of Max’s family farm and farm animals.

Guests were greeted with a myriad of delicious food and drinks which included generous bottles of Perrier Jouet’s grand brut. From the timeless, antique candles above each table to the elegant way everything was arranged, we thoroughly enjoyed every bit of the spectacular wedding. Best wishes to Cynthia and Max from our whole team, as they embark upon their new journey.

Samantha & Joe - Bad Seed Cider Wedding

Every single bit of Sam and Joe's wedding makes us look back and sigh happily. They held their wedding at Bad Seed Cider in Hudson Valley, and just this fact on its own is pretty awesome to us, as we're hard cider lovers. At the start of the day we walked in to a super relaxed and chilled out atmosphere. The girls smiling happily, the guys drinking and have a good time. Guess what? Those good vibes lasted all day long! So many of the wedding day details were made by hand, with love and care. Sam wore her grandmother's pearl bracelet and she wrapped her dad's unicorn necklace around her bouquet. Little sentimental touches like these really add to the wedding day as a whole. Besides for being married by the orchard, they also had a gourmet wood fire pizza truck making a range of pies for the guests- an absolutely delicious addition to the wedding! Also, holy moly that bouquet. What a perfect day, thank you so much Sam and Joe for giving us the pleasure of photographing your wedding.
