Destination Wedding at Liberty View Farm

Evan & Nicole had their destination wedding at Liberty View Farm

In September this year I photographed a wonderful destination wedding in the beautiful hudson valley. Some of you might recognize Nicole & Evan from their adorable engagement session which you can check out by clicking here. Their wedding was near the Shawangunk Mountain Ridge which was the perfect sunset backdrop.

Nicole & Evan had their wedding on a beautiful late summer day at the Liberty View Farm. Their families came from Long Island, and friends came from around New York.  I focused on creating the story of their day through the photos that I took. I hope you enjoy this selection of photos from their wedding day.

Details that I loved

When the wedding day arrived the weather was absolutely perfect, there was a huricane coming up the coast and everyone was worried it would rain. But we got lucky and it was sunny, breezy and wonderful. The perfect late summer day. Nicole & Evan had their first look under a willow tree next to the farm house. Their grandparents and emmediate family celebrated the Ketubah signing before the public ceremony. At the reception they served the most delicious donuts and had a donut cutting ceremony which was adorable.
