Joy-Filled Red Maple Vineyard Wedding
Stunning scenery, sweet details, and a celebratory parade: Rachel and Jeremy’s Red Maple Vineyard wedding was such a joy! Every moment of this special day was filled with love and excitement! After a tear-filled first look under a gorgeous oak tree, Rachel and Jeremy exchanged personal vows with stunning views of the Hudson Valley in front of all of their family and friends. A musical parade led everyone to a scenic cocktail hour and then Rachel and Jeremy danced the night away at their fun-filled reception! I’m so happy to be sharing some of my favorite moments from their joyful wedding day!
Fun Getting Ready Photos
Rachel had so much fun getting ready with her girls on the morning of her wedding! After popping a bottle of champagne, the bridesmaids gathered around Rachel for the prettiest photos! Rachel and her mom shared some sweet moments together before she got dressed in her stunning Karen Willis Holmes gown. I loved all the details of Rachel and Jeremy’s wedding day! The greenery-filled bouquets perfectly accented the white, gold, and green invitation suite. Lavender & Leaf added fun pops of color in the florals with bright red and soft blush blooms!
Groom Getting Ready Photos
While Rachel got ready with her bridesmaids and her mom, Jeremy was joined by his groomsmen. I loved the little details and accessories Jeremy chose, especially the personalized cufflinks! Before walking to the first look location, Jeremy shared a sweet embrace with his mom.
Emotional First Look
After spending the morning getting ready apart, Rachel and Jeremy finally joined together for the sweetest first look under a beautiful oak tree. The moment Jeremy saw Rachel, he broke out into the biggest smile and his eyes filled with happy tears. I am so glad I got to capture these special moments! After their first look, Rachel and Jeremy ventured over to the gorgeous swing hanging from the same tree.
Gorgeous Red Maple Vineyard Wedding Photos
Rachel and Jeremy joined hands and walked along the beautiful grounds of Red Maple Vineyard. The wine harvested in these vineyards was the wine they drank at their wedding! It was such a joy to photograph Rachel and Jeremy on their wedding day, especially after getting to know them during their dreamy Newport engagement session the previous summer!
Beautiful Ketubah Signing
Before their Red Maple Vineyard wedding ceremony, Rachel and Jeremy joined their rabbi and their closest family and friends for an intimate ketubah signing under a sprawling oak tree. The signing of their marriage contract was such a special moment for Rachel and Jeremy as they began their lives as husband and wife.
Picturesque Red Maple Vineyard Wedding Ceremony
Breathtaking views were the perfect backdrop to Rachel and Jeremy’s Red Maple Vineyard wedding ceremony. They said their vows on a beautiful hill overlooking the lush greenery of the vineyard and the sweeping landscape of the Hudson Valley. Their ceremony was filled with so much love!. After Jeremy broke the glass, the two shared their first kiss as a married couple as cheers rang out across the hillside!
Celebratory Parade through the Vineyard
One of my favorite parts of Rachel and Jeremy’s wedding day was the celebratory parade after their beautiful ceremony! The Hudson Horns band led Rachel and Jeremy and their entire wedding down the hill from their ceremony and into their cocktail hour! It was such a joyous way to kick off married life together and I loved the parade of family and friends celebrating Rachel and Jeremy right after they said “I do”.
Intimate Cocktail Hour
The cocktail hour at Rachel and Jeremy’s winery wedding was stunning! Guests gathered AT THIS PLACE and enjoyed drinks, small bites, and lawn games while taking in the scenic Hudson Valley views. After enjoying the warm early autumn air and capturing family photos, Rachel and Jeremy joined their family and friends for their fun-filled wedding reception!
Stunning Red Maple Vineyard Wedding
Rachel and Jeremy’s wedding reception was so incredibly gorgeous! I loved the tree as the centerpiece of the room! It brought the beautiful vineyard grounds inside. The tables were draped in soft white linens and accented with gorgeous greenery by Lavender & Leaf. Rachel and Jeremy chose to accent the whites, woods, and greenery of their reception with the prettiest red and blush blossoms. This sweet couple shared a fun first dance to the applause of their guests! One of my favorite moments was seeing Rachel and Jeremy each share multiple dances with their family members! Rachel danced with her father and her mother and Jeremy shared a dance with his mom and his grandmother. These were such special moments!
Wedding After-Party Fun
Following an amazing reception with non-stop dancing, Rachel and Jeremy joined their guests for an after-party! Family and friends enjoyed being cozy by the fire and delicious s’mores! Rachel and Jeremy shared a few sweet moments together, taking in the magic of their wedding day and all the love surrounding them.
