Hudson Valley, New York Barn Wedding - Kelsey + Chris

Two of the most lovely people I know asked me to come to their hometown in New York to shoot their wedding. It was such a magical trip and wedding, I am so lucky to know these two and their families.

The day before the wedding we spent the day picking wild flowers from Holmquest Farms and arranging all the bouquets and vases.

“We met on a cold, winter night at my cousins bar called the Dark Horse Tavern in Rockville Centre, NY, where Chris grew up along with a ton of our family. We knew pretty much right away that we had found our forever. After a few weeks of dating I went to San Diego to nanny for a couple of weeks and because we didn’t want to be apart, Chris came for the last week and that’s really when the love grew. Chris proposed in the same exact hotel room overlooking the Pacific and had a bunch of our friends surprise us for dinner. “ - Kelsey

“We got married overlooking the gorgeous, forest-filled mountains by our great friend and the funniest person I know, Katie Heneghan, who had everyone laughing, but also crying as she spoke of times growing up together and also, getting to know Chris.” - Kelsey

Chris used to work for a moving company and helped move Scarlett Johansson, she was giving away some of her stuff and Chris ended up with this rug that they then stood on to get married.
