I've decided that I'm going to try to build a little wedding venue in the Catskills! I'd like to hear what you all think. This particular piece of land I want is on the northern side. Basically it would be for people that want to do something very small with a few friends and family members. I also know a photographer I can bundle into the package :) It's an evergreen forest of old hemlocks with a small creek running through the middle. I'm thinking about a little treehouse for the bride to get ready, a ceremony spot on an island in the middle of the creek, and eventually a very small barn for the reception. And maybe a wood fired hot tub somewhere in there :) I feel like there is a market for people that are somewhere between eloping by themselves and having a full blown party with 150 people. I'm getting my financials together to make an offer this week. If things work out, are there any wedding planners out there that I could hire or barter for video to visit the site and talk through what would be possible?
One of my all time favorites. The 9 emotions of 9 flower girls. Weddings are beautifully imperfect, contrary to what you might find in certain magazines or blogs. I love to find these subtle and not so subtle faces in the crowd. As a bonus, this wedding was for my friend CK who is the CEO/founder of @shabbyapple
Sometimes you've got to catch unguarded portraits of the groom wherever you can. Then hit em with a joke
Rehearsal dinners on the beach are always a very good idea
