The couple each got ready at their respective parts of the property. Laura’s hair and makeup took place in the playhouse, which had gorgeous natural light and rustic details. Rob and his groomsmen got ready in the Pequest Parlor, just up the hill from the playhouse. Each space at this Crossed Keys Estate wedding felt like it was truly made for fine art wedding photography.
The first look took place in the rain, just outside of the playhouse. We then took the couple outside of the farmhouse for portraits with their umbrella. The rain started to clear up just in time for couples photos within the weeping willow trees. These two then changed for their tea ceremony in the Conservatory.
The tea ceremony for this Crossed Keys Estate wedding was beautifully lit within the space. Laura and Rob then went outside for portraits before changing back into their ceremony attire. Shortly after, they recited private vows in the farmhouse suite before walking down the aisle. The ceremony was sweet and sentimental, and perfectly reflected the couple’s love story.
Laura and Rob spent their reception having a ton of fun. As candid, documentary wedding photographers in the Hudson Valley, we recommend that you spend as much time as you can on the dance floor. This is a great way to encourage guests to dance and have fun. You can clearly see how much of a blast this party is through these photos.
