Catskills Wedding at Hayfield
Katie & Jonathan
Katie and Jonathan tied the knot at one of the most picturesque places we have had the pleasure of filming at, on one of the most gorgeous days of the year. The venue, Hayfield, is comprised of two “lovingly restored barns in a stunning mountain valley” (we couldn’t have described it better ourselves) and the energy and warmth there permeated throughout the night.
After a chance meeting in NYC one night, Katie and Jonathan knew there was something between them. That feeling of destiny kept drawing them to each other until one day Jonathan proposed in upstate New York. The couple often travels up to the mountains there to escape the city and explore, hike and antique. Their love of the area with its meadows of wild flowers and winding trails made it an obvious choice for their wedding.
We were lucky enough to spend an entire weekend with Katie, Jonathan and their families, which you could tell were their biggest priority. It kicked off with an adventure shoot comprised of a morning hike (aka getting lost) around Deer Mountain Inn. Later that evening, an intimate rehearsal dinner was hosted at Jessie’s Harvest House, a local tavern. The next morning, the couple and their respective wedding parties got ready at the Deer Mountain Inn, followed by a first look on a mountaintop with the most breathtaking views. From there, everyone came together at Hayfield to witness Katie and Jonathan exchange beautifully heartfelt vows. As the sun set and blue hour approached, we snuck in some portrait time and watched Katie and Jonathan bask in that just-married glow. The warm breeze kept the party going late into the evening, ending with sparkler sendoffs (two, because they’re fun.)
