A Wedding at Onteora Mountain House

What a perfect day for a wedding! From the very first moment after our arrival when we found Matt putting the finishing touches on his look for the day, to the moment Michele saw herself in the mirror for the first time, we knew it was going to be an awesome day for a wedding. When you have an amazing couple, a fantastic wedding party, and then mix these with a fabulous location, you’ve got a perfect foundation for incredible images.

Michele & Matt put a lot of thought into personal touches that were seen throughout their day. From the handmade invitations to the cookies and cards on the reception tables; from the purple & black argyle socks that the guys wore to the couple’s signature Purple Haze drink; from the beautifully framed family and engagement session photos to their guest sign-in book, there was so much colorful detail to be enjoyed.

Even if there had been no details at all, Michele & Matt would easily have been the attraction of the day. We loved seeing how beautifully emotive Michele was, and how connected Matt stayed with her. They served up one of our favorite first dances ever (these two definitely have skilz), energizing the crowd with how completely overjoyed they were just being together on the dance floor.

Michele & Matt, we’ve truly enjoyed each and every minute with you. Thank you so much for allowing us to spend the day with you. Your family and friends made us feel so included, and we also appreciate the very tasty meal.  It was a wonderful way to spend our anniversary weekend. 🙂

The full gallery will be available soon in the “Client Proofs” area of our main website. If you’d like to leave a comment here for the happy couple or for us, just click the “Comments” link immediately above this entry.
