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

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.

Onteora Mountain House Wedding

Onteora Mountain House Wedding

Onteora Mountain House is easily one of the most beautiful wedding venues in the Catskills. And Beth and Ari’s Catskills wedding was amazing. It was an unseasonably warm day at the end of May but the sun was shining and love was in the air.

Boston Wedding

Noah & Katie’s Boston Wedding

Noah and Katie’s Boston Wedding was simply unforgettable. Noah was a student employee of mine back when I worked as the Staff Photographer at The Culinary Institute of America and he was a Bachelors candidate. Well, he went on to earn his MBA at Northeastern in Boston MA, which is great because that’s where he met Katie! With Noah’s attention to detail, and Katie’s too, I knew from the very beginning that this would be an amazing wedding. And it was!

We started at the Renaissance Boston at Patriot Place for some getting ready shots and a first look. From there it was off to St. Agatha’s Church in Milton Ma for the ceremony. From there we visited the Arnold Arboretum which is part of Harvard University in Boston for some formal bridal party shots. Then back to the Renaissance for the reception. It was a whirlwind day for sure and I have to give big props to my assistant Jayna (who, coincidentally was a student employee of mine at SUNY New Paltz). Talk about coming full circle.I love working with students realizing that they’re going to eventually become full fledged professionals. Way to make me proud you guys!

After about ten hours I tapped out and enjoyed the whiskey bar. And I even got the leave with a home brewed Saison the Noah and Katie brewed as a wedding favor (it was delicious). Did I mention that Noah is a CIA grad? Haha. Best of luck to you two and thank you so much for having me as a part of your wedding day!
