2020 may just go down as the year we all wish would just disappear!! Kidding not Kidding. Sadly, most of my wedding couples have had to reconfigure their wedding plans this year. But I have to say, they all seem to be taking it in stride! Emily and Nate handled downsizing their wedding plans amazingly well. Maybe that’s why they were blessed with perfect weather the day of their microwedding back in Mid-June!
A Change of Plans
Emily and Nate’s original plan was to have their wedding at the Berkshire Blueberry Lodge in Stephentown, NY. They were inviting 80 guests to witness them wed and celebrate after with a garden reception. After taking it day-by-day, they made the decision to scale down their plans and host a much smaller microwedding. Their new microwedding would take place in the yard of the new home they purchased and moved into during the pandemic. Talk about stress! Only immediate family members were invited with the hopes that they would be able to celebrate with their original guest at a later time, depending on where things stand with larger gatherings.
After saying their “I Do’s” under a tent in their own backyard, we snuck down to the Hillcrest Gazebo located on Onota Lake for all of Emily and Nate’s formal shots. You know I love water, it makes the most gorgeous backdrop!! We headed back to the house for a few more formal shots before the reception began. Emily and Nate’s wedding was not what they originally envisioned, but it ended up being perfectly romantic!
