I absolutely loved Ali and Johnny’s wedding at Apple Barn Farm right outside of Hudson, New York. Hudson has come quite a popular place for rural destination weddings and for good reason; the town is super cute and the surrounding areas have breathtaking landscapes. In fact, the world renowned Hudson River School Painters (including Thomas Cole and Frederic Edwin Church) were all inspired by the area landscapes. Ok, back to this wedding! I loved getting to know Ali and Johnny a bit during their engagement session and knew their wedding was going to be loads of fun. I wasn’t wrong! One of the best parts of being a wedding photographer is that you have almost unparalleled access to some of the most touching moments you will probably ever encounter in your life. Those are no small words. There were so many beautiful moments during this wedding I truly felt honored to be there documenting them. Ali and Johnny had a very sweet (and windy!) first look, followed by a gift exchange, a very touching ceremony, and a really fun reception. Although the day was a little (ok, a lot) windy, the love between these two really made it a perfect wedding day!
