ElmRock Inn Spring Wedding

Megan & Bryan’s ElmRock Inn Spring Wedding

Megan & Bryan work in theater so they decided to have their ElmRock Inn spring wedding on a Monday so that their friends could come! I have to admit, it was the first Monday wedding that I’ve ever photographed. And is was great. I’ve found that awesome couples have awesome friends and that leads to awesome weddings!

In addition to having ElmRock Inn’s very own Harvest Real Food Catering and Chef Brian taking care of the food they also had Danielle from Every Little Detail Event Planning on board. Having such a solid team means that they had nothing at all to worry about other than having a great time with their families and friends! Here’s a link to the planners post about the wedding.

DJ Bri Swatek took care of music for the ceremony and of course the reception and everyone had a great time dancing the night away. At the end of the reception there was a bonfire complete with marshmallows for everyone to enjoy on a brisk spring night.

Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa Wedding

Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa Wedding

Charis and Bill’s Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa wedding was a great time for everyone. Charis found me online via my Wedding Wire page since she was planning her Hudson Valley NY wedding all the way from Colorado. We hit it off and they decided to have me as their photographer. I think it’s really important to hire a photographer that you get along with since they’re going to be spending your entire wedding day with you! Anyway, I digress. Fast forward to July, and I finally had a chance to meet them a couple of days before the wedding. We took a walk around Buttermilk Inn & Spa so I could see what their vision was, and I could tell it was going to be a great day. And it was.

They did a first look once she was in her dress. We did family photos before the ceremony so they could enjoy more of the party after the ceremony. The ceremony was beautiful and right in front of the pond at Buttemilk Falls Inn & Spa. I took portraits in a few locations around the property and got them back to the party. The reception was excellent and the staff at Buttermilk Inn & Spa did a fantastic job. The DJ Lou Paris or Paris Creative did a great job of getting people moving and maintaining the pace of the party. Charis and Bill are a great couple and I wish them years of happiness ahead. Please enjoy the photos below of the their Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa wedding.groom getting ready

Patriot Hills Wedding Photos – Mickey & Kristen

Mickey & Kristen’s Patriot Hills Wedding Photos


Mickey and Kristen’s Patriot Hills Wedding photos definitely capture how fun their wedding was. I met them both when Mickey hired me to photograph his fiancé who is a competitive CrossFit athlete. It turned out that they were engaged and they enjoyed working with me so I became their wedding photographer. In addition to the fitness shoot we also did an engagement session by the Hudson River waterfront in New Windsor in the middle of the winter. This was a great opportunity for us to get to know each other and we also got some awesome photos from it. We made a custom guest book with the photos and they also displayed them around their cocktail hours. I always love seeing my photos put to good use!

Their wedding at The Clubhouse at Patriot Hills in Rockland County was fantastic. They had a huge wedding party and everyone had a great time. They’re both awesome people and they definitely surround themselves with other awesome people so the party was off the hook. The sounds by Jimmy Dee Entertainment kept the party going strong all night long.

Susan & Jonathan’s Millbrook Wedding Photos

I met with Susan and Jonathan in April to do an engagement shoot at her parents house in Millbrook so I would have an idea about how their Millbrook Wedding photos would be on the day of the wedding. The grass was still dead from the long winter and there were no leaves yet on the trees and I have to admit that I was a little worried about the wedding day.

Fast forward two months and it was the most amazing day with perfect weather and an absolutely gorgeous setting. With wedding planning by Danielle from Every Little Detail Wedding & Event Planning every little detail was indeed covered. Flowers and decor by Kamilla’s Floral Boutique in Millerton NY were exquisite.

There was a welcome reception before the ceremony since everyone was from out of town. The Ketubah signing and the Jewish wedding were officated by Rabbi Hirshel Jafffe and the ceremony as beautiful and heartfelt. Susan looked amazing in her mother’s wedding dress. The cocktail parties and reception were catered by Swoon Catering from Hudson NY and the food was amazing. Finally dancing continued into the night to the sounds of DJ Sparber from NYC. It was an amazing celebration for a couple of amazing people and a day that no one who attended will soon forget. Here’s some Millbrook wedding photos for your viewing pleasure.

Celebration Wedding Chapel in Kingston NY

Celebration Wedding Chapel in Kingston NY

Michelle and Dan’s wedding at the Celebration Wedding Chapel in Kingston NY was awesome. It was a perfect day for a perfect couple.

From the moment I met them I could tell how deeply in love they are. We did an engagement shoot in the fall so I got the know them before the wedding. They’re both amazing individuals in their own right, but together they’re unstoppable. I can’t quantify how much they do for the world, but lets just say that they leave it a little bit better than before.

Their first look was in front of the Chapel and Dan was in awe seeing Michelle for the first time in her dress. We did some portraits in Cornell Park across the street from the chapel and then moved back into the Chapel because of gusty winds for the rest of the family photos.

A recording of Michelle singing the Beatles “I want to hold your hand” played before they walked down the aisle. Dan and Michelle both made grand entrances to the ceremony which was officiated by a friend. Their vows were heartfelt and true and in the end they were married.

The reception was a blast with catering by Savona’s Trattoria and sound from Dave Leonard from JTD Productions. Everyone danced the night away and celebrated a wonderful couple in the aptly named Celebration Chapel.

Ginny & Remya – Hudson Valley Gay Weddings

Ginny & Remya – Hudson Valley Gay Weddings

Ginny and Remya live in Pennsylvania but decided to get married at Mohonk Mountain House. Remya’s grandfather worked there a long time ago so she was familiar with the historic hotel. They also chose to get married in New York because Pennsylvania does not recognize same-sex marriage. Mohonk is a great place for Hudson Valley gay weddings.

They’ve known each other since college but only recently reconnected. Since they were having a Hudson Valley destination wedding I didn’t get a chance to meet with them when they booked me. Fortunately I had an opportunity to meet them a few days before the wedding for coffee and we all clicked. I could see right away that they were both great people and a great couple.

Mohonk Wedding in the Garden – Hudson Valley Gay Weddings

There were passing showers that delayed the wedding, but then the sun came out and shined on everyone. Theirs was a small intimate ceremony in the garden officiated by a friend. They were led to the Mohonk garden by The Saints of Swing playing ragtime music in a grand parade which was lots of fun for everyone. I was only there for the ceremony and the cocktail reception, but I had a great time and I could plainly see the love that they have for one another and also the love from their friends. Overall it was a great day and I wish them all the happiness in the world.
