Blue Hill Wedding at Stone Barns, New York
In spring of 2004, Blue Hill at Stone Barns opened it’s doors in Pocantico Hills, New York. A four-season organic farm 30 miles north of New York City that Julia and Kevin fell in love with, not only for the rustic beauty, but also for the healthy farm-to-table dinning experience that they would share with their guests.
Kate Ignatowski was a photographer we had never worked with before but she shared in our creativity and inspiration. We had a brief conversation before the wedding to share our styles and approaches and we collaborated a great game plan to deliver the best experience to Julia and Kevin.
For their ceremony, the couple invited one of their close friends to officiate which added a intimate and personal feeling. The ambiance of the entire venue grounds created a classy feel to the event. During our discovery meeting weeks before the wedding, Julia and Kevin openly shared their passions and past times. This helped us get to know them and allowed us to capture their best stories.
Dean from Bounce Entertainment provided one of the most talented live bands I have ever worked with. Being a former professional musician myself, I knew they were high caliber players. He also allowed us to use our own wireless mic system for the ceremony and reception speeches which guarantees great quality audio both in our films and live.
