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.

ElmRock Inn Wedding

atie & Tom’s ElmRock Inn Wedding

Katie & Tom’s ElmRock Inn Wedding was awesome. They live in Long Island but have a love for the mountains and climbing so ElmRock Inn in Stone Ridge NY was a perfect location for their upstate wedding. I got to know them before the wedding and discovered that they’re a pretty awesome couple. We even did an engagement shoot at Mohonk Preserve with some climbing themed photos.

The day of the wedding was a little rough because of the threat of storms but that didn’t stop them from having an awesome time. First I did some photos of them getting ready and Katie getting her hair done by Brigette from Signature Braids. Then we did a first look and group photos before the ceremony in the yard. The ceremony was on the porch since it was covered and that’s where they tied the knot. Literally. They tied a knot in a climbing rope. I thought that was an awesome touch.

The cocktail hour and reception were perfect. The food by Harvest Real Food Catering was fantastic as always. It was a little cold out but DJ Bri Swatek got things moving on the dancefloor.

To end the evening there was a bonfire complete with marshmallows and buckets of beer. All told, Katie and Tom had an awesome ElmRock Inn wedding weekend.

Backyard Wedding in the Catskills

A Backyard Wedding in the Catskills

John and Alison’s backyard wedding in the Catskills in Margaretville NY was perfect. John grew up in the Hudson Valley and now lives in Michigan. Since his parents have a beautiful home in Margaretville, the couple decided it would be the perfect spot for an intimate backyard wedding on the 4th of July!

I didn’t have a chance to meet them in person before the wedding, but we were able to set up a video chat and I got to know them better. To say that I was psyched to shoot their wedding is an understatement.

The week leading up to the wedding was just a little frightening. And that’s only because it rained. Thankfully, on their wedding day it was mostly cloudy with the sun peeking through a little bit.

The ceremony was originally supposed to be on the top of a giant hill overlooking John’s parents’ property, but because of the mud (leftover from the rain),  they opted to have the ceremony behind the house and next to a little brook. We still managed to make it to the top of the hill for some portraits though. With panoramic views, it was breathtaking.

Despite the change of plan, the ceremony was lovely. In fact, when I asked them about music Alison said the brook would be the soundtrack for the party. It made for great ambiance during the ceremony.

Everyone enjoyed dinner and conversation by the brook. It was a perfect backyard summer wedding.Hickory BBQ Smokehouse wedding catering

Barbara & Gerard’s Wedding in the Catskills

Barbara & Gerard’s Wedding in the Catskills

Wedding in the CatskillsBarbara and Gerard’s Wedding in the Catskills at Full Moon Resort was a blast. Full Moon is one of my favorite places to shoot. An amazing place for a wedding, it’s in the heart of the beautiful Catskills and there’s no cell service so guests like the ability to disconnect and be completely present.
Full Moon Resort Wedding Ceremony
I first met Barbara and Gerard during their engagement shoot in Beacon, NY. I had a great time getting to know them, and I could tell then by their energy and interactions that their wedding day was going to be amazing.
 Lower Grove at Full Moon Resort
Before the ceremony, the couple decided to do a first look and group photos, which was a great choice since it freed up all of the time after the ceremony to celebrate. After the ceremony we did a quick portrait session and then they got to enjoy the rest of their day with their many guests and bridal party members.

Their ceremony was in the lower grove at Full Moon, which is an amazing site for a wedding. The lower grove is a  tranquil clearing in the woods that has a magical feel to it. The ceremony was officiated by Gerard’s father with readings and songs by family and friends.

After the ceremony we walked down to the Esopus Creek, which meanders through the Full Moon property. I’m always super conscious of the time I take with the bride and groom, and it’s my goal to get them back to the party as soon as possible after capturing some beautiful portraits.

The party was fantastic. There was dinner; there was dancing. And Double Image Event Productions made sure that everyone had a great time.

Barbara and Gerard’s wedding was an amazing day for an amazing couple. I wish them all the best in their life together. Their Wedding in the Catskills is not one that will be forgotten any time soon.

Full Moon Resort Wedding

Joanna and Isaac’s Full Moon Resort wedding was a perfect wedding day in the Catskills. Full Moon Resort is located in Big Indian NY, deep in the heart of the Catskills. Surrounded by mountain peaks and nestled right next to the Esopus Creek, this resort offers some beautiful backdrops. It’s a great place for a Hudson Valley wedding close to NYC. The day started with a surprise appearance by a little black bear who was munching on some apples that had fallen from a tree. The uninvited guest was shooed away and didn’t make another appearance. After that bit of excitement was over, we started on the formal portraits by photographing the girls and guys separately. I could tell by everyone’s energy that it was going to be an amazing day. The threat of rain prevented them from having the ceremony in the lower grove but what they may have missed in terms of scenery they more than made up for with their heartfelt vows. The reception was a great dance party with the John Bates Band rocking the party late into the night. It was a great day and one that anyone who attended will not soon forget.
