Cathrin & James

So I wanted to finish my post about our 3 day weekend we shot in the Catskills. The whole weekend was held @ one location, which made it really nice for all the family & friends that decided to stay up. The event took place @ the Full Moon Resort, in Big Indian. On Friday guests arrived & greeted one another, getting better acquainted before the big day. The day ended with dinner in the nearby barn followed by dancing & a bonfire. On Saturday, the day started with yoga followed by a large buffet breakfast. I went with the girls to get the hair done @ a salon about 30 minutes away. It was a nice quiet get away for the bride & a few others to have some down time. Back @ the resort, the guys played soccer or “football” as they call it in Europe. It never ceases to amaze me how differently guys & girls are when it comes to so many things, like what they are doing right before their wedding. Once we got back to start getting the girls ready, I just fell in love with the brides dress. So simple, yet perfectly elegant. The designer was Jim Hjelm.

Cathrin taking a few minutes to check over the dress & fix her hair. She really looked radiant.

While I was with the girls, Jesse got some great shots of the guys hanging out.

The bouquets were absolutely gorgeous & were done by the Flower Shop in the Catskills.

This was an important shot for James, & hope we got it to his liking. He wanted a perspective shot of his face while Cathrin was coming down the aisle.

The ceremony site was just so picturesque. You can’t tell, but below the tree line was a creek, that you could hear ever so softly. It really added to the ambiance & it was so tranquil.

I have to say, after the ceremony the temperatures dropped quite quickly so I have to make sure I give them credit for being such good sports & holding out as long as they did.

You can really see some of the trees changing in a few of the pictures. I was surprised to see color in the middle of September.

The cake was by Sweet Nothings.

There were so many other photos I would have loved to have posted, but with a 3 day venue it was too hard. Thanks again to everyone who helped make this wedding day such a success & a special thanks to Cathrin & James for trusting in us to help capture your wedding weekend.
