HIGHLANDS COUNTRY CLUB WEDDING: MATT + CHRISTIE

I have been dying to share this wedding since the moment I began my drive home after the reception ended. You may remember Matt + Christie from their light-filled West Village engagement session last year. It seems the time between then and their wedding date was insanely productive, because they created one of the most gorgeous weddings I’ve ever seen! Christie’s Martha Stewart inspired vision was executed perfectly. The couple chose to marry at the Church of St. Joachim-St. John in Beacon, NY, while the rest of the wedding day was celebrated at the Highlands Country Club in Garrison, NY. How gorgeous is her Theia laser cut petal wedding dress?! It’s the same one Amanda Seyfried wore in The Big Wedding!

I’m a sucker for a good pair of Jimmy Choo’s a wedding day!

One of my favorite wedding day memories! As Christie was putting on her finishing touches, her lovely maids couldn’t contain their excitement!

Special thank you to my AAAMAZING second photographer, Lauren, for capturing Matt and his groomsmen at Whistling Willies. Matt chose to get ready earlier in the day and spend his “getting ready photo time” at the bar with his best buds! I loved this idea so much!

Obsessed with these gorgeous bridesmaids dresses and colorful bouquets!

Such pretty ladies!!

And the men aren’t too bad either! :)

Easily one of my all time favorite wedding party photos! Magical, magical light!

Christie, you are too beautiful!! I gasped when I saw this photo!

Love, love, love!

How adorable is this escort card display?! The mini pink clothes-pins are so cute!

In LOVE with this reception decor! I wish I could work with The Rosery Flower Shop at every wedding!

The couple set up a beautiful display of their family members on their wedding days past. So sweet!

Naked cake!! Woo hoo!

Cocktail hour at the Highlands Country Club!

Jackie, Christie’s sister, KILLED IT with her toast! “I was looking on Google for tips on how to write a speech and all the searches said I should keep it to 3-5 minutes. I was like ‘Ummm, how am I supposed to fit in my dance routine in 5 minutes?!'” 

When guests needed a break from the dance floor, they could take their drinks out to the lawn and relax by the fire. It was the perfect night!

And of course, selfie with the newlyweds! Huge thank you to Christie and Matt for inviting me to be a part of their wedding adventure! xoxo! :)
