One of my favorite caterers to work with in The Hudson Valley, Main Course Caterers, pulled out all the stops for this one. They always put out such a thoughtful lovely spread. Their presentation is spot on and the food is delicious. And one of my new favorite planners, Cathy’s Elegant Events, transformed the barn at The Farm at Pond Lily into a magical rustic chic, picture perfect, Pinterest worthy wedding fantasy. None of this could have been possible without the vision of the super in love duo, Elise and Tim, and Denise Fasanello Flowers , who I have been dying to work with for ages after following her on Instagram for years.
That first look! Both in tears.
This lovely chilly drizzly Fall wedding is being featured on Twirl Weddings‘ site. Check it out!
In their words:
Despite dense fog and rain in the morning, by ceremony time the rain had stopped and the fog cleared. With wet feet and happy hearts, we joined our lives together in a beautiful and heartfelt ceremony. We were married outside on the lawn, beside an extraordinary old weeping willow tree.
Tied together with a bow, our rings were lovingly passed from guest to guest, to be warmed and blessed, as we said our vows. The overwhelming love that we felt for each other and that we felt emanating from our friends and family was so palpable that, we truly believe, it warmed the air.
The evening inside the barns was filled with warmth, laughter, an exquisite family style feast and nonstop dancing. At the end of the night, we enjoyed s’mores and said goodbye to our guests in the warm glow of a bonfire.
