New Paltz Farm Wedding

New Paltz Farm Wedding

Meghan and Mike’s New Paltz Farm Wedding was awesome in every way. Meghan is a hair stylist and heard of me through a mutual friend. I have to admit, I was pretty excited to shoot a professional hair stylists wedding because I knew it would be gorgeous. And this wedding was no disappointment. I started the day at her salon for some photos of the girls getting ready. Then I went to see what the groom was up to. After that is was off to the farm for the day.

The wedding was at the family farm in Gardiner NY and it was epic. All the styling was done by Meghan and it was perfect. The ceremony was in the middle of the field with a spectacular view of the Shawangunk Ridge (the Gunks) on the horizon.

We took a tractor with a hay trailer further out in the field for photos after the ceremony. After that we did portraits around the farm in front of the silo and even in the hay loft. Yes, that’s right, the bride climbed a ladder in her wedding dress to get up to the hay loft for photos. Awesome!

The reception was in a tent next to the ceremony site. The food was amazing! I think it was the first time I had venison at a wedding reception and I think it was right up there with best food I ever had at a wedding!

They did a lantern release to honor Mike’s late father. Back in the tent the dancing continued everyone had a great time. Overall it was a perfect New Paltz Farm Wedding.

Mohonk Wedding

A Picture Perfect Mohonk Wedding

May and Terrence has a storybook Mohonk Wedding at Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, NY. They live in the NYC but they chose to have a Mohonk wedding because it’s a the perfect Hudson Valley wedding venue. The weather was perfect and the gardens were in full bloom in late August. Mohonk’s garden theme this year was “crayons” so it was a veritable palette of color. I always love shooting in the garden at Mohonk because it’s always different and always unique.

Their first look in the garden was a nice way for them to get to see each other before the wedding and also a really nice photo op. May’s gown was stunning and the flowers by Flowers By Elissa were gorgeous and added just the right touch. If you ever need wedding flowers check her out!

The ceremony in the garden was officiated by a family friend. The bride entered in a horse drawn carriage entrance really set the tone. After the ceremony we did family photos in the garden as well as portraits of the newlyweds. The garden is always a focal point at a Mohonk Wedding and this was no exception.

The reception featured music by the Gerard Carelli Orchestra and the sound was amazing, which came as no surprise since the bride is a musician herself. The music was great and everyone had a wonderful time dancing. Overall it was a storybook Mohonk wedding. But don’t take my word for it. Check out the photos below and let me know what you think.

May & Terrence’s Mohonk Engagement Shoot

I met May & Terrence at Mohonk Mountain House for their engagement shoot on a rainy April day. I was hoping that the rain would stop so we could walk through the gardens, but it was alright that it didn’t because it is Mohonk after all and there’s plenty of covered places to take pictures. We had a great time anyway and best of all, the rest of the weekend cleared up so they were able to fully enjoy the grounds during their stay. Below are a couple of my favorite shots from the day. They’re a great couple and I can’t wait until their August wedding!

Amy & Frank’s Mohonk Mountain House Wedding

Amy & Frank’s early fall wedding at Mohonk Mountain House was a perfect Catskills wedding. It was threatening to rain all day but the weather held off so the ceremony could be outside. It was a beautiful wedding in the garden. During the reception there was quite a thunder storm, but they say rain on your wedding day is good luck. Please enjoy the photos below.

Tralee Farm Wedding – Adrianne & Austin

Tralee Farm Wedding

Adrianne & Austin’s Tralee Farm wedding was a day to remember. It was perfect in so many ways. The ceremony was a St. Joseph Church in New Paltz, NY and the reception was at the barn at Tralee Farm in Stone Ridge, NY. The bridal party was large and I had fun mixing up the poses for the group photos. Adrianne & Austin are so much in love that you can see it in the photos. I had met them for an engagement shoot in the spring and to check out Tralee Farm so we were very comfortable with each other and on the day of the wedding it was super fun and relaxed. Overall it was an awesome day and I captured some great images for them to treasure and remember their Tralee Farm Wedding day.
