Hudson Valley Wedding: Stephanie & Stu

She rounded the corner to peek in the mirror just one. more. time. She smoothed the fabric on the front of her dress, and a deep breath gave way to a huge smile. She was getting married. Today. Their day. The months had turned into days had turned into minutes. And now their time was here. The dress, the hair, the makeup were all in place. All that was left, all that she needed was him.

As she rounded the corner, he fought the temptation to peek just one. more. time When she finally got to him, he smoothed the hair back from the side of her face and a deep breath gave way to a huge smile. This was it. They were getting married. Today. Their day. In a second, he could see the days stretching out into months and into years ahead of them. Their time was just starting here. The archway, the music, the guests were all in place. And from now and for the rest of his days he knew….

All he needed was her.

Married: Stephanie & Stu

Stephanie & Stu were married on a day when the sky itself lit up and put on a show in their honor. A parade of pink, purple and blue settled in over the sleepy valley below, and took their seats as they watched two people start a life together. Together with their friends & family, Stephanie & Stu promised forever. And when they were done, even the sky itself couldn’t help but shed a tear or two. S&S it was our honor to be your photographers, but it is honestly a much bigger honor to be your friends. Thank you, thank you, thank you for having us there with you on your day. My hope is that you will love like this always. Holding on to one another, and with a lifetime full of the kind of sunsets you inspired that day.

So much love,

**Gorgeous blooms by Steve Bruce Designs!

    I love how your images are deep and dramatic. They are emotional and real without the reliance on blown out highlights and barely focused faces. Lovely.
