Friends, what a beautiful wedding I have to share today!
This past weekend I celebrated with Susan and Dan as they said “I Do” in the beautiful Hudson Valley. I was so excited for their day to come! I went to high school with Dan – what a small world it was when I first met them! You may remember Susan and Dan’s beautiful fall engagement at Bear Mountain. I could tell then that they have such a sweet love and friendship. And they couldn’t have a more beautiful day for a wedding! The sun was shining, and it wasn’t even hot for an August day!
When I arrived at The Garrison, I was in love with all of Susan’s beautiful details – her blush and rustic inspired details were just gorgeous, and perfectly fit the setting! Susan had also given all of her bridesmaids special monogrammed robes – so sweet! Susan’s sisters and mom helped her get ready into her beautiful dress, and she opened a sweet gift from Dan – he framed first picture they ever took together (on a Blackberry) 7 years ago! Then, we took some beautiful photographs of all the girls outside and couldn’t resist a shot overlooking the Hudson Valley.
Dan was smiling so big before his bride arrived at the church! Susan and Dan were married at the beautiful St. Patrick’s Stone Church in Yorktown. They had a beautiful ceremony, and before we knew it they were announced husband and wife – and greeted outside by so many congratulations from their guests! We had an awesome time taking photos of just Susan and Dan at the church – there are so many cool spots and beautiful doors, and captured such a sweet love between them! Their Rolls Royce even pulled up for a few special shots before we head over to The Garrison!
The bridal party had such a good time as we took photos overlooking the Hudson Valley. I could tell this was a fun group! And the light was just MAGICAL! We then drove Susan and Dan on a golf cart up to Hole 11 to catch the amazing views of the Hudson. These two are so sweet and we captured so many beautiful shots there!
When the reception started, I could tell this was going to be a party! And Susan and Dan had such a sweet first dance, and you could tell the energy all their friends and family had around them. The sun set beautifully behind Susan and Dan’s sweetheart table as they listened to toasts, and then the dance floor was hopping all night long! (As well as a photo booth where all of Susan and Dan’s friends from Siena College jumped in.) We snuck one awesome night shot with Susan and Dan outside with enough time for them to enjoy more dancing before the night ended!
It was such a joy to be a part of Susan and Dan’s gorgeous wedding day, and I wish these two every joy together! Enjoy their story!
