Traci & Matt, Rip Van Winkle Country Club, June 11, 2016
When Keith and I headed down the NY State Thruway for this wedding, it poured. I mean the rain came down in sheets and we got pretty nervous for our Bride and Groom. As we then took some back roads to get to Glen Brook Farm Resort where the Bride got ready, the rain became a light mist. Phew! We met up with Traci and her girls when they were finishing makeup. Keith headed next door to visit with Matt and the guys and then we set up a first look for the couple. Many tears were shed, and we made sure Traci was picture perfect before heading out for their portraits. This old school Catskill resort has acres of land and many backdrops to utilize. From their neat Swiss cottages, to a wooden bridge that crossed over a stream to even a wooded pond, we utilized every inch of that place. We all headed to Palenville, NY to the Rip Van Winkle Country Club where the couple said their I Do’s in front of the Catskill mountains. Sarah Smith and her crew from the Country Club did a fantastic job gathering guests and opening the reception where dinner was served. DJ Greg had everyone on the dance floor as the party got started. We snuck the couple away at blue hour for some amazing shots on the course. The night ended with a sparkler send off.
Traci and Matt, thanks for the good times and laughs. You guys were so much fun to work with. Wishing you much love in your marriage!

LOVE the look of the old Catskill resort in the background
We had a lot to work with that day
We tried, but that horse just wouldn’t come near us
Now we head to the golf course in the mountains
What a backdrop
