Barn Wedding in New York – A Real Wedding

This barn’s rustic nature gave Emma and Zak’s wedding a homey feel, making it easy for loved ones to cozy up along the bonfire and celebrate the couple’s love and union.

The Westchester Wedding Planner/ValerieCoPhotographersThe Westchester Wedding Planner/ValerieCoPhotographersHow did you meet?  Zak showed up at my front doorstep! I was moving out of my Brooklyn apartment and the girl moving in brought Zak along with her to take some measurements for her furniture before I moved out. Unbeknownst to me, when she met me during the open house a few weeks prior, she thought to herself, “this girl would be perfect for my friend Zak”, and so she brought him along to meet me. Turns out, she was right! The Westchester Wedding Planner/ValerieCoPhotographers

Why did you select your venue? Zak and I enjoy hiking in upstate New York so we knew we wanted to get married in or near the mountains, and we loved the idea of a barn wedding. When we found Shadow Lawn, we knew it was perfect for us!The Westchester Wedding Planner/ValerieCoPhotographers

What was the most memorable moment of your wedding day and why? Everyone dancing to the last song of the night, and then retiring to the bonfire; it was a great transition from high-energy celebration to intimate moments with our friends (the last song was Dire Straits – Walk of Life)The Westchester Wedding Planner/ValerieCoPhotographersThe Westchester Wedding Planner/ValerieCoPhotographersThe Westchester Wedding Planner/ValerieCoPhotographersThe Westchester Wedding Planner/ValerieCoPhotographers The Westchester Wedding Planner/ValerieCoPhotographers The Westchester Wedding Planner/ValerieCoPhotographersThe Westchester Wedding Planner/ValerieCoPhotographersThe Westchester Wedding Planner/ValerieCoPhotographersThe Westchester Wedding Planner/ValerieCoPhotographers

NYC Engagement by Carley K Photography

New York City is the perfect backdrop for just about anything. Thank you Carley K Photography for sharing this engagement session.Skalamera_Skalamera_Carley_K_Photography_ch13040a0021_lowFrom the Bride-To-Be: Ready to make our mark in the real world after graduating college in 2007, Matt, from Glastonbury, CT and myself, from outside Philadelphia, Pa each found ourselves working in NYC.  A few years had gone by, living the life in the Big Apple before our chance meeting.  As fate would have it, that one cold night in January, I went along with some friends to a birthday party, not even knowing the guest of honor, let alone imagining that my future would forever be changed because of him. We found ourselves together again the following weekend celebrating my birthday! And every birthday since!Skalamera_Skalamera_Carley_K_Photography_ch13040a0029_low Skalamera_Skalamera_Carley_K_Photography_ch13040a0035_low Skalamera_Skalamera_Carley_K_Photography_ch13040a0054_low Skalamera_Skalamera_Carley_K_Photography_ch13040a0092_lowSkalamera_Skalamera_Carley_K_Photography_ch13040a0112_low Skalamera_Skalamera_Carley_K_Photography_ch13040a0138_low Skalamera_Skalamera_Carley_K_Photography_ch13040a0145_low Skalamera_Skalamera_Carley_K_Photography_ch13040a0176_lowSkalamera_Skalamera_Carley_K_Photography_ch13040a0205_low Skalamera_Skalamera_Carley_K_Photography_ch13040a0216_low

Southern Vintage Charm – A Real Wedding

This couple’s wedding took the south’s rustic appeal and made it elegantly sophisticated. The Orleans Club’s lawn, with its beautiful towering oak tree, was perfect for Katherine and Jeff’s “I do’s”, while the historic mansion provided a charming backdrop and space for the reception . . . southern hospitality at its best!


From the Bride: We met at LSU where we were both pursuing PhD’s in psychology, but it was not until a somewhat impromptu trip to Atlanta to watch the Saints that we really connected. Fortunately, the Saints won so we were both in a good mood and talked for the entire eight hour drive home. The Saints going through an amazing season really helped bring us and our families together!

The Orleans Club was the perfect venue for us as it was functional but also had its own personality and charm. We were able to have the ceremony on the lawn underneath a classic Louisiana oak tree (Chenier means “oak tree” in French) and then go straight inside to start the reception. The club itself was so beautiful – all we needed was to add a few flowers and it was ready to go!

The venue suggested local vendors who worked there before so many logistics were already figured out. The only thing missing was our dog, Nacheaux!2014-08-01_0006Hunter_Chenier_Eye_Wander_Photo_KJ1904_lowHunter_Chenier_Eye_Wander_Photo_KJ1989_low
