Kelly + Jordan’s Cedar Lakes Estate wedding was one of the most beautiful events we’ve ever photographed! Their Hudson Valley wedding had almost fall-like weather (even though it was a summer wedding at the end of July!) where it was comfortably warm during the day and a little cooler once the sun set. Cedar Lakes Estate is our favorite NY wedding venue for camping / glamping weddings, by the way!
While everyone was getting ready, we learned that Kelly’s whimsical wedding dress was custom made; the long sleeves and high neck were removable, so at the end of the night, it was a strapless dress! There was also a fuller tulle skirt that she wore for the ceremony and photos and removed later for the reception. How cool is that?
As you can see in the wedding photos below, the bride had the most gorgeous group of friends as her bridesmaids. They all wore a dress of their choice in different pastel tones, and her Maid of Honor wore white. The couple’s bulldog was also in attendance with an adorable floral necklace – too cute!
The memorable ceremony was on the mountaintop at Cedar Lakes Estates – definitely one of the best ceremony locations in the tri-state area! For a different feel, their wedding reception was by the pool overlooking the lake. The reception flowers by Faye + Renee were the most breathtaking flowers we’ve ever seen. They did a floating flower installation above the dance floor that was just amazing!
During the reception, Jordan, who works in the music industry, sang for the crowd. He also surprised Kelly with an original song he had written for her that melted our hearts. Kelly and the guests absolutely loved it! Keeping the good vibes going, their wedding band, NYC Swing, had everyone on the dance floor all night. They were awesome!
Overall, Kelly + Jordan’s wedding was beautifully stylish and super fun with just the right elements of rustic glam and romantic elegance. It’s no wonder why Cedar Lakes Estate is the best wedding venue for NY, NYC, and NJ brides and grooms! We were thrilled to be there and capture all the memories 🙂
The simple, rustic elegance of this invitation suit perfectly complemented Kelly + Jordan’s outdoor wedding!
Custom painted wooden signs with lush greenery are always pretty wedding details!
We love this walkway through the woods at Cedar Lakes Estate! Perfect spot for bride and groom portraits 🙂
Kelly’s soft rose bouquet with leaves accents was stunning!
We can’t resist a lovely, flowy tulle and lace wedding gown!
Having your bridesmaids in different shades really makes your wedding photos pop!
