Lindsay & Sean are an incredible couple after our own hearts.
It’s been over a year since we first met at the 2018 Sage Bridal Show at Gilbertsville Farmhouse in upstate NY (one of our favorite wedding venues by the way!).
Despite what you may be thinking, they were not an engaged couple looking for a photographer, though! Instead – they were participating in the event by showcasing their mini-donut creations (see them at 89 Donuts). Between our mutual affection for scrumptious pastries and travel stories, it really was a match made in heaven.
Last year, we met up with these two for their engagement photos in the Catskills of New York state. It was our first time getting to see this part of the world (about ~3 hours from where we live), and it was truly amazing. The sunset view from the cliff we ended our shoot at was a-m-azing!
Now, as you can imagine, we were excited as heck to get to document their big day together at this pretty sweet Christmas tree farm near where they live. We had asked them why they chose Emmerich Tree Farm, here’s what Lindsay had to say…
“Multiple reasons! It’s in the woods, which we love. I am obsessed with Christmas and it’s a Christmas Tree Farm :). Sean’s good friend and groomsman’s family owns the venue. We sell our doughnuts there during Tree Season. It’s about a mile away from where we both grew up! The mid point :)”
Needless to say, Emmerich is a great venue off the beaten path that has great mountain views and an excellent indoor space for receptions. Speaking of reception, these two decided to forgo the traditional reception style in exchange for one that basically answers the question…”what would a wedding be like if cocktail hour never had to end?”
In short – at the top of every hour, the dinner options would cycle. This inspired many guests to stay on their feet and mingling with each other all the way until midnight while the party was still going on!
After such a beautiful wedding – it will be hard to top it. We’ll be seeing these two again next year for an incredible anniversary session to celebrate their journey of love & marriage together!
