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.

Dhebora the Belly Dancer

Dhebora’s mother is a belly dancer so she wanted to do a bellydance themed shoot. She had never modeled before but I had the lights set up in advance so once she got there we were ready to go. She also came with her friend who’s a make up artist so that helped. Overall it was a great first shoot.

Hudson Valley Fall Wedding

Hudson Valley Fall Wedding – Briana & Todd’s Hurley NY Wedding

You often hear the term “peak foliage” when discussing October weddings in New York, well Briana and Todd’s wedding was during the peak for sure. I had worked with them before when I did their engagement shoot in September so I know that they were easy to work with. I started the day at Briana’s parents house in Hurley before heading over to the Hurley Reformed Church for the ceremony.  We did the formal group photos in the yard of the Reverend’s house next to the Church. It was between a parking lot and a highway, but I was able to keep the photos tight and make the most of the fiery autumn colors. Next we headed to a farm that Todd had worked at as a teenager for some photos of the newlyweds. The night finished at the Skytop Steakhouse in Kingston where many of their musical friends made cameos with the live band. Overall we couldn’t have asked for a better day.
