Angela & Greg’s Wedding at The Roundhouse at Beacon Falls
Angela and Greg were married on a lovely Saturday afternoon in October at St. Joachim Catholic Church, and celebrated with their guests that evening at The Roundhouse in Beacon, NY. We arrived at their hotel in Fishkill to find Angela smiling for miles. She might be the happiest bride I’ve ever had the pleasure of capturing! The excitement in the room was palpable as she had her hair and makeup done. She and Greg sent each other wedding day gifts that morning and it was so sweet getting to hear her read his letter to her aloud. Since they had time planned for portraits between the ceremony and reception there was no need for a first look, so after capturing the getting ready portion of the day my assistant photographer and I drove straight to the church. I have shot at the Roundhouse a bunch of times before but had never gotten to shoot at St. Joachim, so I was particularly excited by this combination, and it was beautiful! After tying the knot in a traditional Catholic ceremony complete with full Mass, Angela and Greg retreated for a few minutes of private time as we gathered our gear and got ready for their couple portraits around The Roundhouse grounds. We made use of the beautiful waterfall, the abandoned train track, and brick exteriors common to this location. Their wedding party and family groups came next, and for this the light was just right for me to shoot with the waterfall in the background, which is not always possible if it’s too sunny out, but makes for wonderful shots when it is doable. We finished the list of group shots before guests began arriving for the cocktail hour, which was held on the back patio and lawn just outside the reception space, and finally guests were invited inside the beautiful brick building (an old hat factory!) overlooking the water. We had set up a photobooth for the reception and guests enjoyed taking their own picture to their hearts delight throughout the evening. Highlights of the evening included a heartfelt set of toasts that were a testament to what a perfect match these two are for one another, a sweet set of father-daughter and mother-son dances, and a great thank-you speech from Angela and Greg towards the end of the evening. To my delight, Angela’s glowing smile never quit! I was so honored to capture this fabulous celebration of love. Congratulations to Angela and Greg!
