I love vineyard weddings, don’t get me wrong, but Hop Yard Wedding…AMAZING! The beautiful repetition and structure of lush green rows is a familiar backdrop here in North Fork wine country, but instead at Farm to Pint they are cascading curtains dotted with aromatic hops, setting the stage for romance, and certainly not without good beer. This day was the best because Betsy and Pete are so much fun…and with a bridal party of this size it’s clear just how lovable these two are. The school bus ride to the farm is where it really hit home for Betsy that this was it, and I’m so glad that I was there to capture that moment of sheer joy and culmination.
This property is the family farm, and guests enjoyed the Maid of Honor toast reminiscing of fond childhood memories running about the greenhouses and fields which of course brings added sentiment to such an already enormous occasion. As the sun began to set we took a few minutes more in the hop yard to get some awesome sun-kissed shots before scooting over to those very greenhouses and fields to take in the sunset. It was such a pleasure to photograph Betsy and Pete’s special day and I am super excited to share these images with you. Enjoy!
