Good morning! And welcome to Kaitlyn and Zach’s Stonewall Estate Wedding day blog. I love these two so much and I’m super pumped to share their wedding day.
This was the first time I’ve been to the Stonewall Estate wedding venue in the Catskill region of NY and it did not disappoint. Especially being a rustic inspired wedding during the fall. DELICIOUS.
The property is incredible. The house is rented along with the reception area barn and you can tell the original historic house was expanded into a tasteful and roomy space. There’s more than enough room for both sides of the wedding party to get ready. If you’re looking for an all in one wedding venue in the Catskill mountains, this venue would be a great place to consider.
Kaitlyn and her bridesmaids took the downstairs while the guys were upstairs getting ready.Farmhouse floral designs did the flowers for Kaitlyn and Zach’s wedding. They did a gorgeous job and they even had flowers ready to go for my detail shots. I put a lot of love into my detail shots so I was super excited about this. The colors are just gorgeous.Please bring your dogs to your wedding.
That is all.Kaitlyn is so absolutely beautiful. She has that classic beauty look that could pull off little to no makeup if she wanted to. I’m also obsessed with her hair. Just wait until you see what Dennisse from Salon Estrella does with her curls. The 1950’s housewife pose. I can’t even claim ownership of this. One of Kaitlyn’s bridesmaids was like “DO THIS POSE!” and I’m so glad she did.
This is all of Kaitlyn’s hair. No extensions. I know. Be jealous with me.I SPY BABY DEVIL! There’s no crying at your wedding when baby devil is around. The wedding dress toss. I love when you can find a clean mirror at a wedding venue. I can’t emphasize enough how important your getting ready space is. If you’re on the hunt for a wedding venue, I highly recommend keeping in mind lighting, clutter and mirrors. Not every bride gets these light and airy shots. Stonewall estate makes this look easy.Kaitlyn did a first look with her Dad right before the wedding ceremony.While I was busy taking pictures of Kaitlyn and her bridesmaids, my assistant Kelsey was upstairs with the guys. Again, this space is immaculate with all its light, tasteful decorations and big mirrors. ALSO A POOL TABLE YOU GUYS. Cmon.The actual wedding ceremony itself was so picturesque with its views of rolling hills spotted with fall color. Luckily we had a warm fall day with a bit of a breeze so it was comfortable for everyone as well.First kiss as husband and wife!And now on to my most favorite part of the day. Get ready to scroll.The sun came out just long enough to get some sunshiney pictures. I LOVE the lighting in these.All the smooches.The reception space is perfectly done. I love the red of the outside of the barn as well as the woodwork inside the actual building. There’s so much natural lighting in here as well which is actually pretty hard to find inside of a rustic venue. This place is absolutely gorgeous.This is the first time I’ve seen a cigar bar at a wedding. This needs to be more of a thing.
