Courtney + Viren, Hudson NY

Long time no chat friends!!

I'm so excited to be back on the blog and sharing the wedding of Courtney and Viren. We had such a blast doing this wedding.  Not only were Courtney and Viren a dream to work with, but they brought quite the party for their family and friends. We've seen a lot of weddings, but everyone at this event was so joyous and danced till they dropped. Viren's parents were awesome on the dance floor. It was one of those parties that you didn't want to end. The only surprise of the day was the heat. So we were all a little melty, but a little sweat wasn't going to stop this incredible party.
 When it came to the details, we were able to put in special little touches that made it uniquely them. Courtney's mom loves to garden. So we suggested that she made Courtney's bouquet. Her dad had passed away, so a small picture of him and his ring were attached to the bouquet by some beautiful ribbon from Silk and Willow. We also had an empty chair at the ceremony, with a boutonniere for him in remembrance.
 They had three specialty cocktails to offer guests that were a hit. They are big into cocktails which I'm a fan of :)
The rest of the wedding details we kept simple and lovely. Eucalyptus runners down the tables, mismatched brass, brown bottles, clear bottles. All the chalkboards were stained wood to keep with our theme, and the flowers were simple yet lush. Corn hole and croquet kept guests enjoying the beautiful lawns at The Hill.
The guest gifts were custom mini maple syrup bottles from a farm near the mother of the brides home. We're always huge fans of food as gifts!
We've done a lot of wedding at The Hill over the years, and I can honestly say that each one ends up being special and unique to each couple. But this wedding will always stick out to me as a truly special one.
