Chestnut Ridge Intimate Spring Wedding


March 25, 2021

These two opted for an intimate spring wedding at Chestnut Ridge with immediate family. These smaller weddings are a theme for 2021, and we are here for it!

There was a big chance of rain on their wedding day and it poured the rain shortly after we arrived, the rain then moved out and it ended up being the perfect weather! A few special moments from the day were Bailee sharing a first look/reveal with both her parents. The couple sharing a first touch around the front doors of Chestnut Ridge. Their family praying over them during the ceremony. The sweet and funny toasts by the Maid of Honor and Best Man. Dakota’s mom making their wedding cake, how excited everyone was for them and how much fun they had on the dance floor. Okay maybe that’s a little more than a few. 🙂

The couple had a shorter cocktail hour, and we captured most of their couple photos at sunset, we might have gotten a little carried away with all the photo ops… the mountain views, Bailee’s dress that was made for twirling, Bailee’s grandfathers Chevelle SS, cafe lights at dusk. There are just so many great areas for photos at Chestnut Ridge!

Bailee & Dakota thanks for allowing us to be a part of your day!

Meet Kathy


I’m Kathy – wedding photographer, mom of 1 daughter & 2 doodles, and avid sunset watcher. Once you’ve gotten to know a little more about me, it’ll be my turn to get to know you as too!! When I work with a couple, we usually end up feeling more like old friends by the time your wedding day arrives – which means a more relaxed, enjoyable wedding day experience for everyone. And when it comes to photo style, you’ll find your photos are vibrant and classic, in true-to-life color and timeless black and white. It’s my honor to serve joyful, authentic couples who want their wedding photos to be as timeless as their vows.
