From Lindsay Madden PhotographyOn a warm August day, Alex and Adam were married outside overlooking the Hudson Valley. It was quite the view! Alex and Adam envisioned their wedding day to be elegant with a relaxed vibe and most importantly, centered around their family and friends. The Garrison was the perfect place to bring their vision to life. Alex’s bridesmaids wore Jenny Yoo in champagne and they were able to pick the style of dress that fit them the best. Their whole look was tied together with the most breathtaking bouquets provided by Steven Bruce Design. Alex’s wedding look was romantic and sophisticated. She looked gorgeous in her Augusta Jones wedding dress. Her bouquet was absolutely stunning and I simply loved the pops of color. Alex and Adam’s reception decor complimented The Garrison’s reception space perfectly. Steven Bruce Design dressed up each table with stunning flowers and candles. Alex, Adam and their guests danced the night away thanks to the talented Phase One Orchestra. I had such a wonderful time capturing Alex and Adam’s summer wedding!

Whimsical Summer Wedding at Highlands Country Club

Sparkly bridesmaids dresses in shades of blush, cream, and gold, bright bouquets of peonies and one amazing cake makes this summer wedding an SMP homerun. With Cassi Claire capturing every perfectly pretty moment and Oakjo Wedding Films getting all the live action, this celebration (and this gallery) has become my new official happy place.

Whimsical

From The Bride… Even before Matt and I got engaged, we always wondered where we would have our wedding given that our families are 3 hours apart. We came up with the idea of getting married somewhere between our two families to make it convenient and also have the opportunity to explore a new area. Once we got engaged, we stuck to that idea and looked at a bunch of venues between Long Island and Albany, NY. When we came across Highlands Country Club in Garrison, we knew immediately that it was the clear winner. It had everything we could have hoped for – a charming, intimate feel with so many gorgeous, easy-going details, and an absolutely stunning outside veranda. It was perfect for us and set the tone so well for the rustic chic theme we had in mind.

Once we booked Highlands Country Club everything fell into place in terms of our décor and little details. Since we were getting married in June, we wanted to keep the color scheme very light and whimsical with pops of beautiful soft corals and pinks. For our wedding inspiration, we looked to Martha Stewart and the beautiful real weddings on Style Me Pretty to come up with the little ideas we knew we wanted to try. Throughout the months of our wedding prep we always tried to keep it simple and fun, focusing on just a few things at a time so that it never got too overwhelming. With the help of our amazing vendors and a few exciting DIY projects, everything we imagined seemed to fall into place so effortlessly. As our wedding drew closer, one of the most rewarding parts of the planning was seeing all of our details come together in a way that was even better than we had pictured it. From the intimate, happy setting to the light-hearted, fun feel, everything really felt perfect. Our wedding was everything we hoped it would be and so much more.

Classic Old Hollywood Glamour at Highlands Country Club

Not gonna lie, I spent a fair amount of time admiring this lovely little gallery from Michelle Lange. It’s classic Old Hollywood at Highlands Country Club, sprinkled with just the right amount of glitz and glam. From the Bride’s perfectly hot pink lip, to the gilded stationery (oh how I love the stationery) and hints of champagne throughout, it’s the kind of wedding that makes every guest feel fabulous. Take a peek right here for so much more!

Glamorous

From the beautiful Bride…Our wedding was inspired by classic, Old Hollywood glamour. Keeping it classic was important to us, because we wanted the feel of an elegant, black tie affair. However, I love a little glitz and glam so we tried to inject hints of this wherever possible. We kept our color palette simple and light, inspired by summer with ivories, pinks and blushes. We also chose to utilize pops of metallic gold to bring on the luxe-factor. I love the gold foil detailing on our invitations, for example.

Our venue, the Highlands Country Club, was the perfect fit for us because the gorgeous architecture, columned veranda and ballroom with the most beautiful chandelier we’ve ever seen, definitely brought the black tie atmosphere while also maintaining a sense of home, since we were able wander and use all parts of the property – as if our guests were at the most grandiose house party they’ve ever attended! We added so many special touches and DIY projects to make the space our own. I bought the champagne-colored sequin table linens on Etsy and they were one of my favorite touches because they really brought the ballroom to life. We also custom designed and created many of the wedding day details: our programs, our petal toss bags, our table numbers and all of the signage used throughout the venue. One of our favorite projects was the décor used in our ceremony tree. We strung crystals, glass votive lanterns, which held lit candles, and blush carnations from fishing line, all of which was strung so beautifully throughout the tree branches. We are also very proud of our favors, which doubled as our escort cards. Together with our families, we made and bottled limoncello and attached guests’ escort cards to the bottles. We are both Italian-American, and have spent lots of time living and traveling in Italy, so this was a special touch for us.

Our favorite wedding day memory is our first dance. We were nervous about dancing in front of an audience so we practiced some super simple choreography beforehand. While practicing we kept messing up, stepping on each other’s toes and we were nervous it wouldn’t be right on the day of! Plus, we were worried that Sal would step on my dress. When the time came, the dance went off without a hitch and we had a standing ovation from all of our guests! Our photographer snapped the most amazing photo of the dip and kiss and the end of the dance, which is one of our favorite photos from the whole wedding. Overall, everything went as planned and the day was more beautiful than we could have ever hoped.
