A Vintage Romance in the Hudson Valley

Jennifer &  Bart  |  October 12th  |  Warwick, New York

From the bride, Jennifer:
We chose to be married on October 12 because it was my parent’s 55th wedding anniversary.  My parents are a true testimony to what marriage is.  Unfortunately, my mother has Alzheimer’s and no longer knows who her family is and hasn’t for a few years so she was unable to be there and I Know she would have loved every detail.

 We were married in the Warwick valley winery pear orchard in a very large Gazebo. We wrote our own vows and made the ceremony about family.

 My favorite treat is a chocolate covered apple and with us at a pear and apple orchard it seems perfect to give chocolate covered apples as our favors.

We had elegant simple cut flowers in milk glass vases including a milk glass vase that had been my parents for many years which was on our head table.

On Cloud Nine in the Catskills

Hillary & Brian  |  August 20th  |  Hunter, New York

From the photographer, Sarah Esther:
Hillary and Brian met while in grad school at Emory University in Atlanta. What started out as a completely scholastic friendship turned quickly into a lovely romance. Both of them have electrifying smiles, which come out in full force anytime they are around each other. The wedding took place at Twilight Park in Haines Falls, Hunter Mountain, NY. The event hall looks over the Catskills, and in August it is a gorgeous view of soaring mountains and yellow flowers. The two decided on a traditional Jewish Ceremony and invited friends and family from across the country to join them. The details of the day were gorgeous.
