Late Summer Backyard Wedding in Upstate NY
Jessica & Justin had a beautiful backyard wedding at their country home in upstate NY. Jessica got ready at the beautifully renovated Rivertown Lodge in Hudson, NY with her closest friends. She worked on her vows until just before the wedding, while Justin probably had his rewritten weeks beforehand. Jess is spontaneous, hilarious, and lives in the moment. Justin is super organized, he embraces spreadsheets, planning, and is always on time. Together they are the perfect fit. They push each other to grow and try new things. Watching them together was beautiful and inspiring.
Wedding Details that I loved
I loved that they had a backyard wedding at their home. Backyard weddings are so intimate and meaningful. Now they can relive and remember their wedding anytime. Jessica & Justin embraced an organic natural flow of events, keeping their focus was on keeping things simple and honest. Most of their guests were close friends, and beyond the very basics nothing was scripted or forced. Their ceremony was performed by a friend, and Jessica walked down the isle with one of her best friends. Having acoustic musicians playing cello and violin at the ceremony added a beautiful sound and made the ceremony feel authentic and sophisticated. Later in the evening, when Justin gave his thank you speech everyone (including myself) was laughing, his accent impressions where priceless! Their family and friends gave heartfelt speeches that made everyone laugh, and cry, honoring their loved ones past and celebrating the moment.
I hope you enjoy this selection of photos from their beautiful backyard wedding!
Jessica and Justin received about 400 of their wedding photos in a handmade wooden box. I try very hard to ensure that the first time a couple sees their wedding photos they are in print. Being able to touch the prints, and take them in without the distractions of being on a screen really enhances the experience. I’d love to tell you more about my process and the options for image delivery. Please feel free to get in touch, lets get a coffee (or tea) and I’ll answer all your questions about my wedding photography services and experience.
