Ivy and Wes’ wedding at Red Maple Vineyard is the perfect way to kick off our blog! Not only were I + W an absolute dream and pleasure to work with, but this venue is something special, too. We love getting to spend our days at Red Maple Vineyard – one of the best Hudson Valley wedding venues. The grounds are gorgeous, the team is incredible, and it’s actually where we would have gotten married if we didn’t elope! As people who photograph weddings for a living, that’s a pretty hefty statement, huh?
Okay, enough of the rambling, let’s get into Ivy + Wes’ day!
We can’t even begin to describe how excited we were to work with Ivy + Wes. Ivy reached out to us before even booking their venue or their date – that’s how dedicated she was to having us photograph their wedding! Talk about a dream client scenario. It means the world to us when couples trust our expertise and want us to guide them throughout the wedding planning process. Ivy said that to her, we were her most important vendor, and she allowed us to be with her and Wes every step of the way.
When you book us as your photos/video team, you also get access to our preferred vendor list. Sometimes it can be tricky to find the perfect vendors that will provide a stellar experience for you and your love. But, lucky for you, we’ve worked with tons of amazing vendors, and will happily provide you with only the best recommendations! For Ivy + Wes’ wedding, we were able to build the ultimate vendor dream team that worked together seamlessly and coordinated their day to perfection. Yes, don’t worry, you can have that too! 😉
Listen – we get it. There are a million moving parts on wedding days, and it’s VERY easy to get wrapped up in the whirlwind of it all. However, it doesn’t have to be that way!! In fact, it very much should not be like that. Ivy and Wes were a perfect example of how enjoyable your wedding day can be when you remain present and in the moment the whole time. We’ve photographed countless couples, but these two were truly the most intentional with where they put their time and energy that we’ve ever seen. It made their photos so much more genuine and real because they were just straight up having a good time the entire day. We 100% want that for you, too!
Another thing that made their Hudson Valley wedding so special was the people they had with them for such a momentous occasion. Their group of friends came from all over the country to be with them on this one day and make it a freaking blast. No bickering, no fighting, no overly-opinionated parties – just people who love Ivy and Wes just as much as they love each other. It was such an awesome thing to witness, because that’s not always the case with every wedding! It was truly a testament to the amazing people that Ivy and Wes attract into their lives due to their own energy.
We HAVE to take a moment to discuss the wedding coordinators at Red Maple Vineyard – Amy, Bailey, and Michelle. They always take such good care of their couples and have an amazing team behind them running the show. We have never felt so confident recommending a venue to our clients, but they’re just that good! And, of course, a huge shout-out to the vendor team we put together for Ivy + Wes’s wedding:
