A Beautiful Wedding at Abbey Inn & Spa

As a wedding photographer, I recently had the pleasure of documenting a remarkable celebration at Abbey Inn & Spa in Peekskill, NY. The venue’s charm nestled in the Hudson Valley provided an ideal setting for a couple’s special day.

The Wedding

The wedding was a perfect blend of elegance and sophistication. Green Cottage High Falls’ floral arrangements enhanced the venue’s romantic atmosphere, complementing its surroundings with delicate blooms.

APB Entertainment’s lighting set the mood, adding a magical touch that highlighted intimate moments and created a warm, inviting ambiance for the guests.

WanderingWheels Events’ rentals added personalized touches, seamlessly integrating with the venue’s aesthetics and elevating the overall ambiance.

Eiffel Beaute’s hair and makeup artistry highlighted the bride’s natural beauty as she adorned herself in a Pronovias gown for the ceremony and later in a Pnina Tournai masterpiece for the reception. The groom looked dashing in a Joseph Abboud suit paired with Loeffler Randall shoes.

From heartfelt vows to lively dancing, every moment was a treasure. My goal as a photographer was to capture not just images but the emotions, glances, and genuine laughter that filled the celebration.

Abbey Inn & Spa’s timeless architecture and scenic landscapes provided a picturesque backdrop, adding grandeur to the day’s festivities and creating unforgettable memories.

In the end, it’s the love, laughter, and joy that make these moments special—a testament to a beautiful love story celebrated with grace and elegance.

To the newlyweds, may your journey together be as beautiful as your wedding day, and may the memories made at Abbey Inn & Spa last a lifetime.
