Bernadette and Anthony's Wedding!

When I photographed Bernadette and Anthony's engagement session earlier this year, I quickly learned that these two share an adventurous spirit and thirst for the outdoors. Their wedding on Friday, October 17th, perfectly exemplified their mutual love of nature and excitement. Set at beautiful Hunter Mountain in upstate New York, wedding guests and the party itself all made their way to the ceremony site - 3,200 feet above sea level - via the ski lift! Up on top of the mountain, with the fall foliage as a magnificent backdrop, the two tied the knot. Back down at regular elevation, a fabulous party followed at the Copper Tree Restaurant where DJ Lee Waddell kept the dance floor hopping.

Congratulations to Bern and Ant, may your lives be full of blue skies, lush landscapes and adventure together!

Floral arrangements were made by Teddi's Flower Shoppe in Catskill New York.

Bern and Anthony's Engagement Session!

   

 

 

 

 

One of my favorite things about what I do is that I get to experience happy couples in their element. My engagement session with Bern and Anthony on Saturday exemplified this to the max. Bernadette found me through our mutual friend, Vickie, which assured me I would adore them from the get go. We met early in the morning at the Pawling Nature Reserve off of a winding dirt road meandering around a body of water. I waited for Bern and Anthony in a little parking lot, feeling isolated due to the tall trees and lack of cellphone service. Suddenly a nice solid pickup truck arrived and I knew immediately that snaking back roads were common place for these two. Proving themselves to be both adventurous and goofy, it was a pleasure to hike the trails and become fast friends with them! My favorite quote of the morning was when Anthony decided to break down a branch for them to sit on next to a waterfall and exclaimed "I wish I had my axe!" After we spent some time at the reserve, we took a ride back to their beautiful house to take some photos with their beloved pit bull, Conan. Our lovely two hours really set the stage and inspired me for their upcoming Hunter Mountain wedding in September!
