Rachel & Robert’s Festival themed Wedding at Stone Tavern Farm
Rachel & Rob love music festivals and wanted their wedding to reflect their passion. With help from their briliant planner, Kate Arel of A Charmed Affair
, they put together a celebration featuring all the best elements that make summer dance parties so fun, and hosted it at all at Stone Tavern Farm in Roxbury, NY. When I dropped off my assistant to shoot the groom getting ready in the “Wizard of Oz” room at a nearby boutique hotel with artistically themed rooms I knew the day was off to a great start! Meanwhile Rachel and her bridesmaids were hanging out in their adorable customized onesies at a fabulous rental home down the road. We met at the farm for their first look and couple portraits and got a good round of shots in before it started to get just a *little bit* rainy during the bridal party group shots. For the family groups we stayed indoors and utilized the pretty lights in the reception area of the barn and crossed our fingers the rain would wind down. Guests were already being escorted up the hill to a gorgeous field where the ceremony was to take place, and of course the show had to go on. Despite the very light droplets picking up and becoming more forceful for about 30 seconds (as if on cue) during her walk down the aisle to meet her groom, Rachel was laughing and smiling through it all. This couple couldn’t have been more radiant as they tied the knot with help from their friend and favorite Yoga instructor under a glorious tree as friends and family surrounding them with love. Guests popped confetti cannons as Rob broke the traditional glass underfoot and they sealed their union with a kiss. We hopped on some golf carts and retreated to the barn for the signing of the marriage license as the guests were taken to a covered deck overlooking a pond for cocktail hour. As the rain died down guests ventured out to enjoy the lawn games provided and later made their way down the path to the barn for the reception. The evening unfolded with magic around every corner– highlights included a hot-dog-costumed toast, a glitter and glow station to spice up the dance floor, a live painting being created during the wedding, and a surprise fireworks display followed by an afterparty with live music performed by Space Bacon and an accompanying laser show! Congratulations to Rachel & Robert!
