to the best of the Hudson Valley’s winter elegance. Snow showers, candlelight, charming fireplace, warm hearts.
The bridesmaids made a stunning ceremony processional in their elegant, black evening gowns and scarlet shawls, carrying bouquets of white flowers. Amy’s infectious smile lit up the room as she joined her guests in the atrium, the beautiful trophy on her mother’s arm, as Jeff performed “Over the Rainbow” on acoustic guitar.
Amy’s Maid of Honor described the “twinkle” in Amy’s eyes when she spoke about Rich for the first time as the moment she knew they were something special. That twinkle intensified as the newlyweds slow danced together, savoring the moment surrounded by their loved ones.
The dance floor belonged to the ladies that night. The bridesmaids belted out the words to Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance,” the song they had been singing all day, and sang every word of Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind.”
“We are in New York,” one of the ladies pointed out. “It’s appropriate.”
Amy’s energy on the dance floor was unbelievable! It drew her girls around her…and made it a whole lot of fun for Jeff and me.
What a beautiful way to start the New Year! Thanks for having us, guys.
