This Blue Hill At Stone Barns Wedding was so much fun! Mostly because I know the couple from college but also because of the venue.
Blue Hill has a restaurant in NYC and its Upstate New York farm is know by foodies because of Dan Barber. The amazing chef who has been featured in documentaries and been on TED.
When I heard thats where Mariel and Evan were getting married I was so excited for my crew meal. Definitely the best food I ever had at a wedding! More importantly though the barn and the farm are beautiful to photograph and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect.
I went to Emerson College with these two and spotted them throughout the years at their friends wedding that I happened to photograph. So I guess they naturally thought of me to capture them on their big day and I’m so happy they did! Loved being part of it.
Did I mention the food?! Well, since they didn’t want to miss out on that and just the general fun times of cocktail hour we did all the portraits before the ceremony. That way they could be free to mingle and eat right after they walked down the aisle. They tied the knot in the courtyard under this giant tree and had the cocktail hour in the vegetable garden before moving inside for the reception.
This was just a perfect wedding and the staff was amazing. Made everything run smooth and made my job easy.
I hope you enjoyed the photos and got some ideas and inspirations.
Would love to hear what you have planed for your wedding.
