Mary & Matt’s Greywacke Meadows Wedding Rensselaer County NY Wedding Photographers

Mary & Matt, July 7, 2018, Greywacke Meadows


Keith and I were so excited to head to a newer local venue we hadn’t shot at yet.  Nestled up near Grafton and up the mountain a bit is Greywacke Meadows.  A little unassuming when you first arrive, but let me tell you, this place was amazing!  Owners Brandon and Jane McDermott have transformed this barn and farmhouse into a wonderful wedding venue for those seeking a gorgeous rustic wedding.  We arrive and headed to the Farmhouse, which has been transformed into a special Bridal suite.  The decor is on point and set up for all the Bride’s needs on their wedding day.  Mary was getting hair and makeup done when we arrived and the girls were able to spread out over the two rooms in the downstairs of the house.  Matt arrived and headed to the dedicated Groom space upstairs in the barn.  The couple had a First Look in the back of the rustic barn and we fell in love with the knotted pine wood as a backdrop.  The venue also has a beautiful garden that is lit at night and makes for wonderful photo opps as well.  The couple were married across the street in an outdoor ceremony, and then guests headed to the barn and enjoyed amazing food and grilled steaks right on premises by Talk of the Town Catering.  Parked just at the entrance of the barn is a rustic vintage red pickup truck that was begging to be photographed in the golden hour sun.  Mary and Matt danced the night away with their guests and just as we were about to leave for the evening, the sun set and cast a mixture of blue, purple, and pink hues in the sky.  The couple climbed the huge Greywacke rocks to be in perfect position for a glorious sunset portrait.  It was a dream come true and we are so honored we had the opportunity to share in Mary and Matt’s special day!
