A Mountainville Manor Wedding – Stacey and Justin.
Mountainville Manor Wedding. Mountainville, NY.
The Hudson Valley is one of my favorite areas to shoot. There is just a very relaxed feeling. The mountains, the old houses, the foliage. It all just clicks together. So it was great to shoot Stacey and Justin’s Mountainville Manor wedding on a warm sunny day. Stacey started her day in the bridal suite upstairs, while Justin got ready with the guys just across the hall. Once everyone was looking spiffy, it was time for their first look on the front porch. Stacey and Justin were so excited to see each other for the first time that day, it was really fun to watch. But they didn’t have a ton of time to take it all in, because we had to get them to the ceremony. The gorgeous flowers provided an amazing backdrop for the nuptials and it was clear, the happy couple was filled with joy. After the ceremony, Stacey and Justin joined me at the Moodna Viaduct for some EPIC portraits. The environment couldn’t have given us a better stage for portraits. As much as I wanted to stay there all evening, we had to get the newlyweds back to the Manor for their reception. The speeches were great, the food was amazing, and the dancing went all night. Everyone had a great time celebrating the happy couple. Congratulations Stacey and Justin and enjoy the photos!

What drew you to the venue and what was your favorite detail?
The location and age! And of course how wonderful Lauren and James are! Favorite detail… Might have been the mantle at the fireplace that we had decorated, but I really couldn’t possibly choose! Everything was perfect.
What was your favorite moment from your wedding?
The hilarity that ensued all through the ceremony
What was the most special thing you experienced at your wedding?
Ahhhh the whole night was magical… I can’t pick just one thing!
What was the best piece of advice you got before your wedding?
A lot of people told me to just enjoy the night and to make sure I eat, and that was really helpful because nobody prepares you for the fact that people will still come up to you even when you’re physically eating
How would you describe your wedding day?
What guest had the most fun at your wedding?
My brother lol!
What was the biggest reason you chose Tom Harmon Photography to capture your big day?
A girl posted on FB the photos you took of her and her fiance when I was looking for recommendations, and her photos just looked like pure magic. I never once felt looking through your work that it was like looking at a catalogue. Each piece is its own!
