I always love photographing at Mohonk Mountain House. Everywhere you turn there is a unique and beautiful backdrop for a photo. I’ve never photographed a winter wedding at Mohonk though so I was very excited when Mariella contacted me about photographing her wedding in February. I was even more excited when she said that both she and Chris were committed to getting some pictures outside no matter how cold it was! This winter has been fairly mild and I was hoping that it wouldn’t be brutally cold. It was certainly blustery and there were even some snowflakes flying around! It was a beautiful backdrop for (some quick) outside pictures though. After the preparation, the wedding ceremony was held at St. Joseph’s Church in New Paltz, NY. After the ceremony we headed back up to Mohonk for some formal photos. I had a great time!
