When Victoria (Tori)  reached out to me two years ago, I knew immediately that I would love to capture her and Kyle’s wedding day.

Victoria and her bridal party got dressed as her parent’s house in the Hudson Valley.  The wedding day began with the ladies getting their hair and makeup done while exchanging stories.  Glory Addie from Upstate Roots Salon did an amazing job with all of the girl’s updos. Tori’s loose curls were stunning with her lace and glitter dress and long veil. Tori’s statement necklace was amazing and her gold heels perfectly coordinated with her gorgeous wedding day attire. . Tori has great style and she knocked it out of the park when it came to styling her wedding. Her bridesmaids looked fabulous in their short pink dresses, with flower print heals. The clutches that the bridesmaids carried were adorned with flowers and something that we’ve never seen before.

Prior to meeting up with the girls, I did a little scouting for locations in downtown Coxsackie for after the ceremony at St. Mary’s Church. I found a super cute row of old buildings and we had a great time taking photographs with the wedding party after the ceremony. The girls were troopers even when we had to pull the umbrellas out because of a little rain. The umbrella photographs are some of my favorites from the day!

The reception was held at the beautiful Diamond Mills Hotel and Tavern in Saugerties, NY. Having grown up in Saugerties, I am so glad to see a wedding venue that matches the historic nature of the town and overlooks the bridge and waterfalls. Bethany, Diamond Mills in-house wedding planner, did a smashing job with organizing the reception and was a doll the whole night.

Friends and family danced the night away after dinner to the live band, Grand Central Station.
