Hudson Valley weddings always have a certain charm and we love just them! One of the newest wedding venue options in the area is absolutely incredible! June Farms is not only breathtaking as far as the grounds go, but the owner, Matt Baumgartner, and his staff clearly love what they do, and do it with heart and excellence. Acres of rolling hills, beautifully landscaped flowers, stunning barns and friendly farm animals around every corner, it was a true photographer’s dream. The Pony Barn has such a great vibe and you can’t beat a wood fired pizza over with a wrap around outdoor bar. Matt started this endeavor from scratch and seeing what he’s created is very impressive.
Another photographer’s dream was this amazing couple. Jessica + Leslie were so much fun at our initial meeting at the studio. I could tell this was going to be a beautiful day filled with love, zero stress and everyone having a great time, and that’s exactly what it was. With a huge shout out to the wedding planner and team who made the day run perfectly, Christine Wheat is no joke when it comes to making sure the big day runs smooth and that everyone is well taken care of.
I’ve been raving about this day to my family and the YTK Team for weeks and am so excited to finally share some of my favorite images with you all!
A very special moment as her Aunt placed her Grandmother’s ring for the “something borrowed.”
A sweet first look with Dad.
Now to go check out the Groom!
This is such a perfect spot to exchange vows, gorgeous and peaceful.
The vows Les wrote had quite a few of us in tears.
Off to cocktail hour in the Pony Barn!
Who doesn’t love a little Scotch and axe throwing?
Such a perfect spot to enjoy some celebratory cocktails and catch up with guests!
I learned very quickly that this little orange and white friend we made, is the actual owner of the farm.
Time to join their guests in the dinner tent, overlooking the grounds and setting sun.
With the beautiful sunset, we just had to run up to the best view possible. With the golf carts June Farms uses to get around and Christine Wheat’s excellent driving skills, we were to the sweetest spots in no time.
Back at the Pony Barn for live music and dancing in the barn, or lounging with cocktails on the patio.
Congratulations to Jess + Les. Your love radiates and your smiles are so contagious. Thank you for having YTK capture your special memories!
