Hudson Valley Wedding Photography is such a beautiful experience when you are blessed enough to be linked with amazing people! Beth & Chase’s West Point Club wedding was this for me and Jenn! Beth was a bridesmaid in one of our past weddings at FEAST at Round Hill in Washingtonville, NY. When Beth was ready to prepare for her own wedding, she remembered us and made it a point that BOTH me and Jenn would be at her wedding, together. Before I could give her a final answer, I asked Jenn if she’d be available for a double wedding weekend. As soon as she heard who we would be photographing she said yes!
West Point is a an amazing place with breathtaking views and sites! Also, it had special meaning for Chase since West Point was his Alma Mater. Chase picked a few places we just had to get photos at! They both chose to have a very laid back, non-traditional (other than their Catholic ceremony) wedding celebration. We met them at Trophy Point and they were all smiles and ready to start their adventure. After Trophy Point, and a few places surrounding, we headed over to the church for a quick photo session before they greeted their friends and family into the church. Greeting their loved ones was very important to them and we took a lot of pictures with a ton of fun and loving moments!
After the full mass with communion we headed over to the West Point Club where we were quickly greeted by Beth and Chase who asked us to whisk them away for a few more photos, just the two of them, so that they could catch their breath before Cocktail Hour. After pictures, Jenn and I entered the ballroom mesmerized! The room was a panoramic view overlooking the Hudson River that seated close to 300 guests! We were not prepared for that given how laid back, fun and carefree Beth and Chase were, but the ballroom proved to be just as laid back and fun as they were once the music started!
We truly enjoyed every minute with Beth, Chase and their family/friends! Everyone was so gracious and appreciative of us being there to capture this incredible day for them! And, you could tell how loved they both were, too – hanging in the ballroom was a ‘love’ quilt that was specially made from memories, quotes, blessings and talents of each of their guests that gathered! A beautiful day, a beautiful celebration and a beautiful couple – truly couldn’t have been asked for a more wonderful experience!
