This spring day in NY’s Hudson Valley was perfect for A&W’s joyful celebration–and we had the most amazing sunset to boot!

Celebrating Their Love at this Hudson Valley Garden Wedding Venue

Walter and Amanda reached out in 2022 about having me photograph their joy-filled celebration. When I spoke to them on Zoom, I was actually working in the Middle East!

As a multicultural couple with different skin tones, they wanted to ensure they would look…well, like themselves in their wedding photos! As a true-to-color photographer, I photograph all types of couples, be they different religions, genders, skin colors, and nearly anything else.

So, capturing both of these beautiful souls was no problem, since I always deliver images that represent the day as one sees it–no crazy filters or overediting here.

Lucky for me, they hired me…and lucky for them, they got the most beautiful summer day and sunset to boot!

About FEAST at Round Hill

FEAST at Round Hill is a well-known garden wedding venue in the Hudson Valley, New York. It’s about 2 hours from NYC, and offers an affordable, catering-included wedding in upstate NY. Given the name, the venue concentrates efforts on catering and different offerings, with many cuisines, diet-friendly and allergy-friend meals, and more.

Ceremonies take place in the garden area under the large tree. If rainy, it’s in the narrow dancing hall. Photo opportunities in the stone and water garden and back field are beautiful.

FEAST in Washingtonville, NY is a unique wedding venue in that it offers cool architectural features and an extensive property. I’ve listed it on my “Top Unique Hudson Valley Wedding Venues” guild right here.

FEAST at Round Hill is Closing

Unfortunately, FEAST at Round Hill is slated to close at the very end of 2024. FEAST tells me that the owner is retiring as of 2025. The building could be sold, or perhaps someone else will take over this wedding venue–but for now there are still wedding dates open in 2024 at this affordable New York wedding venue.

A Wedding at F.E.A.S.T. at Round Hill

There was a tearful first look with Walter and Amanda seeing each other for the first time. After that was family photos in front of the water garden and FEAST mansion, a few portraits, and then the ceremony.

Amanda’s uncle officiated, and to commemorate the new wife and husband, guests threw rose petals that they’d all grown for the couple! How cool is that?

Then the videographer and I took the couple to the field next door for sunset. And what a sunset it was! Beautiful golden hues shined all over the hill, meaning we could get a bunch of those romantic, warm shots to celebrate their day.

The tables were all set with travel locations where the couple had been, from Taiwan to Belgium. Several of their details were travel-themed, which is always a wedding trend! Dinner, a dress change for Amanda, and lots of dancing followed. Though I typically photograph more non-traditional weddings, this traditional wedding between these intelligent, in-love, and downright good-lookin’ individuals was a delight to capture~
