Lauren & Harrison’s outdoor summer wedding on the Hudson: Monteverde at Oldstone
Lauren & Harrison were married on a beautiful Saturday in late August on the grounds of the beautiful Monteverde at Oldstone that’s nestled beside the Hudson River. I started the day with Lauren and her bridesmaids getting ready together and having hair and makeup done upstairs, while my assistant photographer captured Harrison and his groomsmen preparing downstairs. After reading love notes they wrote for one another we brought them together for a first look, and it was off to the races! This location was stunning and I loved making portraits of this sweet and spontaneous couple and their wedding party, which had an adorable handful of flowergirls and ringbearers in it! After that we gathered the family for group shots before heading inside for their Ketubah signing ceremony. Lauren saved her veil as a special addition for the ceremony and wow did she look gorgeous! Meanwhile guests began arriving and were treated to lemonade on the covered porch before making their way down to the incredible ceremony spot on the expansive lawn. Harrison was beaming as she walked down the aisle during their ceremony and these two made quick work of tying the knot, sealing their marriage with a kiss and the traditional breaking of the glass. As they walked back down the aisle, officially husband and wife, Harrison took his new bride in his arms and kissed her passionately and I was just tickled to capture this moment. After a pleasant cocktail hour on the lawn, guests made their way to the beautiful tented reception complete with a dance floor and amazing band to kick off the evening’s party. Highlights of the evening included a lively Hora, humorous and moving toasts from fathers and siblings, a fabulously engaged dance floor, and not only a brilliant cake, but a surprise oversized cookie for the bride. I was so honored to capture this incredible wedding– congratulations to Lauren & Harrison!
