Summer Wedding at the Garrison

A Summer Wedding Snapshot: The Garrison

I recently had the honor of photographing a beautiful summer wedding at The Garrison. Situated in the Hudson Valley, this venue provided a stunning backdrop for a couple’s special day.

The Garrison’s scenic views and natural charm created a picturesque setting for this memorable celebration. Against this backdrop, the day unfolded with Atomic Funk Project setting the mood with lively tunes that got everyone on their feet, creating an atmosphere filled with excitement and joy.

Hudson Valley Floral’s arrangements added a lovely touch of color and elegance to the venue. Their floral designs perfectly complemented the surroundings, enhancing the overall beauty of the day.

The bride looked stunning in her Lazaro Bridal gown, radiating grace and style as she walked down the aisle. Her attire was a reflection of her unique taste, adding to the beauty of the occasion.

My goal as a photographer was to capture the genuine emotions and fleeting moments that made this day so special. From heartfelt vows to candid laughter, each photo told the story of their love.

The Garrison’s rustic appeal and scenic beauty provided an ideal setting for creating lasting memories. Every snapshot captured the essence of the couple’s love against this breathtaking backdrop.

Ultimately, beyond the venue and details, it’s about the love between two people and the timeless moments created.

To the newlyweds, may your journey together be as beautiful as your wedding day at The Garrison, and may these memories be cherished for a lifetime.
