A butt-grabbing first look (totally Melissa’s idea). A bridal bouquet including James’ mother’s ring with matching colors. Faces full of cake everywhere. These are a few of my favorite things from Melissa and James’ Hudson Valley wedding at the incomparable Grandview overlooking the Hudson River. Always one of my favorite Hudson Valley wedding venues to photograph, the day was just perfect for Melissa and James.. almost as perfect as they are for each other. Seriously, that chemistry between these two, is as unique as it is refreshing. The day started out for both Melissa and James preparing for the wedding at the Grand Hotel in Poughkeepsie (less than 10 minutes from the Grandview), and moved right to the venue for their amazing, “first look” and their wedding portraits, followed by their short and sweet ceremony. Then the party really got started Thanks, also, to Hanel for shooting for me and contributing some great shots!
