Nature! It’s really good on it’s own. It’s also really good with a couple of married people traipsing around in fancy clothes. Just like Kayla & Curtis here. Their Stonewall Estate wedding up in Delhi, New York in the Catskills was a perfect example of never having too many trees or mountains or barns or views. But, before all of this hiking and climbing and standing in ferns situation, these two did something I really enjoyed witnessing and photographing.
Instead of reading their vows infront of all their guests, they decided to read them to each other right after their first look. It was intimate and a perfect way to have that moment privately without having everyone you invited watch you. This is exactly why I say you have to do things that are right for you as a couple, not just because it’s what other people do. It’s your wedding and there are no rules. Be your own people.
Aside from that, you have to applaud these two for getting their shoes dirty. Literally. I’m fortunate to work with a lot of couples who love nature and love to hike so they made sure to set aside plenty of time to explore the huge property for their Stonewall Estate wedding. It gave us a lot of relaxed time before they did the whole marriage thing to get a ton of variety of backdrops and simply spend one-on-one time with each other. Another thing that’s pretty important when it comes to marriage. Here’s their Catskills wedding story in picture form.
