Christmas Wedding at The Bernards Inn

Rachel and Peter’s wedding was held two days after Christmas and The Bernards Inn was still decorated for the holidays. Peter is from Scotland and Rachel moved there with him. He showed me photos on his cell phone and it is as spectacular as you would imagine Scotland being. Below you will find a selection of photos from throughout the day. Look at the details in the bouquet arrangements. They’re made of paper thin wood. Really nice touch.

A very special thanks to my wife for assisting me with lighting setups and a second camera angle.

Wedding in a Rustic Barn at The Raritan Inn Bed & Breakfast

Hometown homeslices Christine Strani and Joe Crincoli tied the knot at a wonderfully decorated and joyfully celebrated Raritan Inn bed & breakfast in Califon, New Jersey. All of the decorations were done by Christine and her family. Framed photos of their family history and handmade signs. Special touches everywhere to make it their day and not something purchased in a store. My wife assisted and shot alongside me. I let her run wild and she did a great job getting candid moments and alternate angles of what I was shooting. Low fives for her because my high fives are too high for her.

The owners of the Inn are friendly people and I’d recommend contacting them for a weekend getaway or your own special event.

Afterward we were treated to one of the best freaking dinners ever at The Tewksbury Inn. Any place that has fancy s’mores for dessert and comes out with a little campfire on the dish is clearly a restaurant I will revisit.

Adventures in Wintery Warwick, New York

We spent four days in the Hudson Valley of New York visiting places like Warwick, Sugar Loaf village, New Paltz, Benmarl winery and Huguenot Street. We stayed at the Inn at Stony Creek and the hospitality was top notch as usual! Some of my favorite photos are toward the bottom. I stood out in the freezing cold determined to photograph the Orion constellation. It was a cloudy night, so it was a bit tricky!
