Amy & Patrick’s Mohonk Garden Wedding

Amy & Patrick’s Mohonk Garden Wedding

Amy & Patrick’s Mohonk Garden Wedding was awesome. It was a perfect late September day in the Hudson Valley, and a great day for a wedding. Their first look was on the cliffs overlooking Lake Mohonk, which is also a great place for portraits.

After their first look and some portraits they took a row boat ride around Lake Mohonk. They’re both very into nature and Mohonk is a perfect location for a nature lovers wedding. Their ceremony in the garden was beautiful albeit a bit sunny. There were an amazing amount of monarch butterflies feeding in the gardens, which the bride later explained to me, are of particular significance to her. It was a magical time.

After cocktail hour on the porch overlooking the lake the wedding moved down to the Picnic Lodge for dinner and dancing and even a bonfire. Overall it was a perfect day for a great couple.

Senate Garage Wedding

Senate Garage Wedding – Lucy & Scott

Lucy and Scott’s Senate Garage wedding in Kingston, NY was a perfect day for a perfect couple. I had a chance to meet them for an engagement shoot in the spring so I  knew how much fun their Senate Garage wedding was going to be. Lucy and the girls had their hair done at Le Shag right up the street and then got dressed at the Senate Garage. The wedding ceremony took place in front of the historic Senate House in uptown Kingston NY. They read each other a list of promises during the ceremony and had everyone both laughing and crying. The wedding reception was in the Senate Garage right next door. A great night was had with amazing food from Bridge Creek Catering and lots of dancing with some fine beats from DJ Lou Paris of Paris Creative.

Wilderstein Wedding

Wilderstein Wedding

Lyn and Paul’s wedding at Wilderstein Historic Site in Rhinebeck NY was an amazing day. They chose Wilderstein because of their affinity for both historical architecture and the Hudson River. They decided to have a first look under the giant tree in the front lawn. Then we did some photos of their families and the bridal party in front of the River. Next was the ceremony. Their friends, who just happen to be vaudeville performers, performed the ceremony. As you can imagine, it was both funny and personal. After the ceremony, the party began. With a long cocktail hour following the ceremony and the wonderful cuisine of Jeff Loshinsky Catering it was an event to remember. And of course the cake from Calico Bakery was amazing. Throughout the day and night the crew from Every Little Detail Wedding and Event Planning made things run smoothly. The piece de resistance was the wedding party and guests performing parts of the Rocky Horror Picture Show during the reception. All in all it was an excellent Wilderstein Wedding.

A July 4th Wedding at The Inn at West Settlement

A July 4th Wedding at The Inn at West Settlement

Emily and Andrew’s July 4th Wedding at The Inn at West Settlement in Roxbury NY was a beautiful Catskills summer wedding. Although they live in Brooklyn,  he’s from Saugerties and she went to SUNY New Paltz, so a summer wedding in the Catskills was perfect for them. Everything on the day of the wedding was awesome. The ceremony was in front of the Inn; I managed to get a group shot of all of the guests following the wedding from the steps of the Inn. Cocktail hour was a great party, complete with lawn games. I even got a shot of the newlyweds in front of the American Flag: an apt backdrop for a Fourth of July wedding. The party in the barn featured beats from Lou Paris of Paris Creative, so, of course, the dance party was awesome. Overall, it was a perfect day for Emily and Andrew.

Ashokan Dreams Fall Wedding

Zander and Patrick’s Ashokan Dreams Fall Wedding was perfect. They planned out every little detail, and it showed. Ashokan Dreams is the perfect spot for a fall wedding in the Catskills. Thankfully the weather held out despite the threat of rain, and they were blessed with a perfect fall day. Catering by Hickory BBQ Smokehouse was excellent at usual. And everyone danced away into the night.
