Happy summer to you all! I’m sure most of you, like myself, will be attending a lot of weddings this season (of course, I’ll be behind the camera). As such, I thought I might share with you a particularly lovely summer wedding that was held at the Round Hill House in Washingtonville, NY. Emily and Mike were blessed with beautiful weather for their big day. The ceremony was held outside with cocktails on the front veranda. To keep guests cool and comfortable, the wedding program was printed on fans which were handed to each guests.
Emily is a spunky, DIY-lovin’ chick who took it upon herself to assemble all of her own flowers, as well as her centerpieces and table place cards. The centerpieces, you might note, were created using stacks of antique books held together with ribbon and small bouquets of flowers placed around the books. These centerpieces fill out the table with a vintage touch, but are low enough so that guests can easily chat with one another. [And from a photography point of view, low centerpieces are ideal because I can get a shot of guests from afar without having a garland of flowers block my lens.] The vintage theme was continued throughout the reception with fondly-remembered family wedding photos. The evening ended with a treat for guests: a gelato station where guests could pick their favorite flavors and toppings.
And just who are Emily and Mike? They met in college through mutual friends and bonded over a delicious 2:00 a.m. serving of white pizza smothered in bacon and fried cheese. Thankfully the proposal took place on a much healthier note while hiking at Olivia’s Overlook in the Berkshires. Emily was totally caught off guard on the trail, and they have been together ever since.
