Kristen & Kevin’s Wedding at Locust Grove

I always enjoy getting to know the couples I’m photographing. You know – little things like where and how’d they meet, where they went on their first date, how long they’ve been dating, what they adore about one another – stuff like that. I certainly don’t pretend to know everything there is to know about how Kristen and Kevin started dating or every detail which brought them to Locust Grove for their wedding this past Saturday, but what I did hear makes me think these two could win a prize for the coolest dating story of the year.

Her smile is contagious

Stories like theirs touches the heart. I mean that too. I have friends that actually met the same way as Kevin and Kristen and it never gets old. It’s truly one of the most romantic, show me a love film, go happy, best tear at your heart love stories there is. So if you’re wondering – these two first met in high school. Yup – high school and for Kevin it was love at first sight. Unfortunately though God had different plans and they went their separate ways, but years later and with unanswered questions in his heart – these two reconnected and Kevin got his chance to ask her out. Author James Baldwin probably sums it up best when he writes “Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle, love is a war; love is a growing up”. And for Kevin, the battle ended with an oh so sweet victory. Congrats to you both!

Locust Grove

Saturday’s Spring wedding at Locust Grove seemed to me to be the perfect way for a hundred or so of their closet friends and family to shake of the dear-drums of a long cold Hudson Valley winter in upstate New York. Guests flooded the wrap around outdoor patio at Locust Grove as warm weather, dim candlelight and laughter made ice cold beers go down like candy to a kid. Everyone enjoyed a Photobooth set up Courtesy of Music Speaks Volumes and exceptionally fine dinning by Lolas in Poughleepsie before charging to the dance floor to dance to the music and entertainment provided by Hudson Valley DJ Domenic – what a great night!
