Rachel & Collin’s Historic Catskill Point Wedding Catskill NY Wedding Photographers

Rachel & Collin, June 8, 2019, Historic Catskill Point


We love our couples, but definitely love those couples that roll with the punches.  Rachel and Collin were meant to be.  Coming from a small town, these two ran in similar circles for awhile.  Collin has a way about him that keeps Rachel giggling and we shared lots of laughs throughout their wedding day.  Rachel and her girls got ready at Rachel’s Aunt’s house. The girls had just finished hair and makeup when we arrived, and then they helped Rachel get into her gown.  It was quite the hot day outside so we stayed in the air for a celebratory toast with her girls before heading over to the church.  Mt. Pleasant Reformed Church is nestled in the hills of Columbia County.  About 230 guests filled the small church to witness this couple get married.  Rachel walked with her dad down the aisle to the altar where Collin was stuck behind his groomsmen as he didn’t know when to come out.  It was comical watching him see his bride over the shoulders of his Groomsmen before busting through to be face to face with his beauty.  As the ceremony proceeded, the Best Man almost dropped the rings, but when Collin went to slip the ring on Rachel’s finger, he did drop it.  Rachel was a good sport and I think everyone in that church who knew Collin expected nothing less, LOL.  After they were officially wed, they recessed outside where the whole Wedding Party had a good laugh with the couple.  We headed across the river to the Historic Catskill Point where we finished up pictures before guests arrived.  Guests enjoyed great food and libations provided by Creekside and they began to dance.  Boy, did this crowd come to dance!  A packed dance floor all night; to be exact.  Thanks to DJ Fernando.  We slipped out at two different times with the couple to capture some amazing sunset shots over the river.  It was such a fun day!  We hope that you guys continue to find laughter in your lives; Rachel and Collin.  Keith and I feel this is a the”key” to a long and happy marriage!  Congrats!

The Father of the Bride had some great things to say about Collin


This sword has cut all the family’s wedding cakes.  Had to get a shot of their rings on it.
