There’s nothing I love more than a cozy intimate winter session. When Chris reached out to me about proposing to his girlfriend Lynn at Foxfire Mountain House I was so excited. Foxfire is one of my favorite wedding venues in the Hudson Valley.
He planned for the big moment to happen the day before Valentines Day. We were so fortunate that the Catskill Mountains happened to get a good dumping of snow just beforehand. We planned for the proposal to be at the glass house, given it is the most secluded and picturesque spot on property.
Chris and Lynn casually strolled hand in hand up the path towards the glass house, with Lynn completely unsuspecting. Once they reached the front doors, Chris got down on one knee. Lynn’s reaction was priceless. In complete shock, Lynn said yes.
After the initial moment, we took advantage of the glass house for some more pictures. The decor and styling inside the glass house and the main Inn at Foxfire Mountain House are so unique and the perfect setting for some just-engaged photos. We were also blessed with a beautifully sunny morning, with the light streaming through the antique windows of the glass house, bringing even more character and charm to the scene.
Later on we sauntered through the snow paths back to the main house, Chris & Lynn got a couple of celebratory hot toddies. Set under the soft string lights, they took a moment to sit together on the moroccan tiled enclosed veranda to soak in the moment a little more.
Foxfire has such a cozy interior, with its dim lighting, plushy couches and roaring fire. It’s the kind of spot you want to curl up on a winter’s day and watch the snow fall. It was a perfect setting for these two’s engagement, and would later be the setting for their intimate spring wedding.
