I first met up with these two in Moab, Utah. Mom, if you’re reading this, I did not meet two complete strangers in the middle of the desert with zero cell reception next to a cliff… I promise. (Wink wink). So worth it thought and you can check out those photos here!
Andrea and Ben had a super laid back vibe for their outdoorsy Adirondack mountain wedding at The Bark Eater Inn in Keene, NY. From the moment the day started, they prioritized spending time with their closest friends, laughing until their cheeks hurt. There may have been one or two group cheers and lots of happy dancing as well.
Dad ran security while he waited patiently outside the door to walk his beautiful daughter down the aisle. Now this wasn’t any old aisle, as we had to walk all the way down to the field where the ceremony was set up. No one complained, as it was well worth the mountain views in every direction. Nothing but warm Fall sunshine and Saratoga Sound playing acoustic melodies straight out of a movie. Andrea and Ben made sure everyone had a crisp cold cider and fresh donut for the show. This made for a perfect end of the ceremony treat, queue more happy dancing for the newlyweds because she did not miss a beat grabbing a donut at the end of the aisle haha!
During wedding party photos, Andrea saw the groomsman having some fun by throwing the groom up in the air. I looked up to see her running over to the groomsman wanting a turn at the fun. I can promise you, I have never seen someone get that much air in a wedding dress before. You could only see her cowboy boots and the sky, it was truly impressive.
Once photos were done we headed back to the beautiful tent to get the party started. One of the unique things Andrea and Ben did during their first dance was they asked their wedding party to join them halfway through! They all switched around dancing partners and hugged, it was seriously such a sweet moment for their friend group before they danced the night away!
I will never forget such a beautiful Adirondack wedding at The Bark Eater Inn in Keene, NY. I am seriously in love with what I do and feel so lucky every single day that this is my job. If you’re ready to follow along, I’d love to connect over on IG – @michellegodfreyphoto.
