Laura + Justin…

This Southern girl really enjoyed shooting this wedding.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the City, but I like shooting in a barn as much as I like shooting at The Plaza.  Here are a few of my favorites from Laura + Justin’s upstate wedding… assisted by Cesar Carrasco.

Laura’s bouquet was so beautiful. It was really important to her to have peonies in her decor, and despite difficulty because of the volcano irruption, her florist made it work.  Just goes to show we never really know what vendors have to go through to make things happen!  The bouquet also included freesia, which was so fragrant that I didn’t want to stop shooting it!

The ceremony took place at the Stone Church in Cragsmoor, NY– SO beautiful.

I love this shot of Dad exiting the ceremony…

My personal favorite…

Cocktail hour games had been set up by the groomsmen.  And yes, I put myself in the direct line of on-coming horseshoes and sand bags to get these shots… there isn’t a whole lot I won’t do for a good picture!

The tables at the reception were loaded with great details, lush floral arrangements in mason jars, fruit, bread, candles, and awesome table markers made from letter flash cards…

Guests were given sparklers to light their procession across the street to the bonfire…

Bonfire.   S’mores.  A perfect ending to an awesome wedding!

    Hello Courtney,

    Pictures are beautiful, i was wondering if the barn photos from Laura and Justins wedding were on site at the stone church in cragsmoor or if the reception was somewhere else? If it was somewhere else do you happen to remember where?

    trying to plan our wedding and your pictures are my dream wedding come true. thanks

    Hi Katherine! Laura + Justin had their wedding at the Stone Church in Craigsmoor and the reception was at Shadow Lawn, which is also where the Barn photos were shot. Oddly enough, I am getting ready to post and Anniversary shoot I recently did at the Stone Church, so keep an eye out for those as well. I hope this information was helpful to you!

    Warm Regards,
