Indian Ridge is a phenomenal venue for a wedding. This past Saturday, I had the pleasure of shooting my first wedding at Indian Ridge, and it could not have been more perfect. If you are thinking about getting married in the Hudson Valley, I would highly recommend that you look at it if the words outdoor, rustic, apple orchard, lake, or field have come up in conversations about what your dream wedding may be like.
Nearly all day long.
Still, everyone had an absolute blast because it was perfect.
Weddings are all about the memories that are made thanks to the family and friends that come to show their love and appreciation for the newlyweds.
Years from now, Megan and Steve may think back to the rain on their wedding day. More likely, they will remember the fun on the dance floor and the words they each said during their vows that caused each of them to tear up. The weather likely won’t even come up.
As the reception came to a close, the skies cleared completely. Stars were shining everywhere we looked, and Megan and Steve were up for a quick couple of portraits. Ricky, the owner at Indian Ridge, was kind enough to drive them out into a field where I was set up for a short 5 minute portrait session.
I must admit that I was a bit disappointed with the first frame. However, when I started working on the images later that night, I couldn’t have been happier. The second image is the vision I had in my head and was trying to create. The first image, however, speaks volumes to me about the perfection of their wedding day. They show their love for each other. The moon is just starting to rise. The stars are perfect, including the Little Dipper near Megan’s waistline. Just like their wedding day, these images of the two of them at the end of the night simply couldn’t be more perfect. A perfect end to a most perfect wedding.
