I loved everything about this backyard Hudson Valley wedding.
The morning was laid back, with Georgia getting her hair done and taking Super8 film in the process. She did her makeup in about 3 minutes flat – impressive by any standard – and somehow also managed to also paint her moms nails, all in the short time we had together before the ceremony.
Georgia & Peter had the most beautiful, intimate ceremony at a parish that was right next door to Georgia’s family home. They’ve known the minister for years and it was so special for him to marry them (at age 97!). After the ceremony, the wedding guests walked the winding path next door to Georgia’s parents back yard, where they were greeted by a beautiful sail cloth tent and a sprawling dance floor. The tables were topped with loucious arrangements that Georgia arranged herself (a total wonder woman bride!) in thrifted and sourced antique vessels.
We stopped by a neighbors old apple orchard for portraits, which was one of my favorite moments of the day. The sun was shining beautifully and we spent our time around the old trees and stone walls, giving the photos such a timeless, elegant feel.
The rest of the reception was filled with a shuck-your-own oyster bar, sweet first dances and teary eyed toasts. The couple spent the rest of the night on the dance floor with their guests as the sun set and a cool breeze rolled in.
Kind words from Georgia & Peter:
“Emily was so kind and professional, a true pleasure to work with! She truly went above and beyond for us and the photos turned out more beautiful than I could have imagined. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great wedding photographer”
