Natalie and Mike live in our little town of New Paltz, NY and knew that Dave and I were wedding photographers. Mike is the owner of the new Hudson Valley Brewery in Beacon. He brews super good beer and in the last couple years has achieved success as a ton of bars throughout the Hudson Valley and NYC have started carrying his beer. We all met for drinks and I KNEW I wanted to photograph their wedding.
They were married on October 6, 2016 with their ceremony and reception at Crested Hen Farms. Crested Hen is a new venue and I am IN LOVE. The owner, Frank, is in it for the right reasons. He has done a tremendous job creating the perfect balance of sophisticated and rustic- which is really hard to pull off. The restoration job on the English-Dutch dairy barn is simply magnificent. He kept a lot of the old details, like the original hand hewn beams, which add to the ambiance. The whole place is rich with historic charm. It’s SUCH a great venue and it was perfect for Natalie and Mike.
