Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa Wedding from Sarah Tew Photography
August 24, 2012
Tri State

A dynamite location (to say the LEAST) at Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa, a timeless gown, beautifully displayed food on the most elegant of barn tables and some oh-so-amazing florals from Linda Baldwin Flowers are what make up this in.cred.ib.le wedding from Sarah Tew Photography. The very sight of a Claire Pettibone gown makes my heart go pitter pat and when you add invitations from the great Mr. Boddington's Studio, well, that sends me right over the moon. Oh, and did I mention that they had their Boston Terrier walk down the aisle as the ring bearer? Commence swooning. Find the full gallery of this wedding, right here.

From Sarah Tew Photography... Katie and Sharmilan got married at one of my favorite locations I've shot at in the last few years: Buttermilk Falls Inn in Milton, New York. Just over an hour from the city, this picturesque venue is nestled along the Hudson River and features duck/geese ponds, pretty little bridges, rolling hills and giant weeping willows. Oh, and a field of beautiful day lilies! They had their ceremony outdoors on a slope towards the pond, followed by a cocktail hour and tent reception down near a patio with a view towards the river. Everything was SO beautifully planned and had such lovely personal touches and elegant style — everything fit the couple's personality and had that inviting warmth that the best wedding celebrations are so rich with. The ceremony featured such sweet readings and even a sing-along. Their cute-as-can be dog, Wilbur, was walked down the aisle as the ring bearer, to everyone's delight. For tablescapes, the couple chose (and had Katie's father send all the way from Britain) to use colorful old tea-tins for the gorgeous centerpieces and beautifully-arranged fruit on cutting boards atop burlap runners. Pretty pink-rimmed china plates displayed letterpress menu cards with mouthwatering descriptions of the caterer's farm-to-table dishes. The band, which I'd had the pleasure of seeing before, has got to be one of the best bands you can book for a wedding around here — and they did not disappoint. After a heartwarming set of toasts (Sharmilan's brother's speech brought tears to my eyes!), the crowd was ready to get down! At the conclusion of the tented reception, guests were invited to follow a lantern-lit path to the Red Barn for an after-party.
