It’s hard for us to choose a favorite moment from Elisa and Martin’s big day. One look at all the goodness captured by Christian Oth Studio and I Do Films in The Vault, and you’ll see why. But with a team of vendors like Daughter Of Design, Stacie Ford Weddings, Jarrell Entertainment and Sperry Tents Greenwich, that this day is complete perfection should come as no surprise!
From The Bride…Martin and I wanted our wedding to feel like an intimate weekend getaway with our closest family and friends. We have relatives living as far as Alaska and California, so it was wonderful to have our immediate family and bridal party stay together in the main house at Locusts on Hudson for the entire weekend. The property in Staatsburg is breathtaking and encompasses everything we love about fall in New England. The Locusts’ barn created the perfect warm, rustic space we envisioned for the reception. The night was full of love and personalized touches from our friends and family, including beautiful speeches, a delicious wedding cake baked by our friend Gretchen and a serenade of “At Last” from my bridesmaid. PS Tailored served our favorite dishes family-style at long wooden tables and Poppies & Posies transformed the space with their magical floral design. I surprised Martin with a 90’s after-party complete with his favorite desserts from Joe’s Stone Crab and Magnolia Bakery. The Fresh Kids of Bel-Air had our guests dancing until the early morning hours. Annie & her team helped make the planning process fun and stress-free. Although Hurricane Joaquin dashed our plans for an outdoor ceremony, the weather was perfect by Sunday and we were able to enjoy a goodbye brunch by the Hudson River.
