When I walked into Kristen’s suite at The Scribner Hollow Lodge in Hunter, NY, the first thing I saw were her candied apple Christian Louboutin shoes. Super high and super sexy. I am always impressed when anyone can wear shoes this high – especially to their wedding. (I’m more of a Fiorentini + Baker boots kind of girl.)

Kristen and Joe grew up in Saugerties, NY, but didn’t get together until years later. Joe’s great-grandfather started the local shoe store Montano, which is still  in the family after one hundred years. The couple chose to have a hometown wedding, and took advantage of local and familiar settings – which made it really special for me to shoot.

Kristen looked stunning in her Nicole Miller gown, while Joe  and his groomsmen looked quite dapper in their J. Crew three piece seersucker suits (with red Nike’s specially ordered from Montano’s). The bridesmaids were lovely in navy blue dresses of different styles with great red shoes. The ceremony was held at St. Mary of the Snow; the reception followed at The Lazy Swan Golf Club, both in Saugerties, NY. It was a beautiful day, a beautiful sunset, and cheers to this beautiful couple!
