Mountain View Winter Wedding | Allison & Ryan

Allison and Ryan’s mountain view winter wedding at Chestnut Ridge was such an amazing day. It was warm and sunny January day after a week of snow and ice and bitter cold.  If I had to choose a word for the day it would be joy!  From the groom, Ryan and his best man walking into the ceremony arm and arm to Andy, the doodle dog walking down the aisle and greeting the guests to Allison and Ryan’s first dance (they nailed it by the way) through the sparkler send off.  Joy was a part of the entire day!

I first spent time with Allison and Ryan together at their engagement session we met up at Honeysuckle Hill  Andy, the dog joined us and made it in about three pictures before going for a swim in the lily pond, and Ryan had to go in after him. I think we were all wondering just what Andy might get into on their wedding day, however there were no shenanigans from Andy.  Just some really cute pictures of him with the bridal party, he was totally eating up hanging with the ladies in their pictures.

  • These photos are gorgeous, but they are especially amazing because the lighting coming in through the back window made it almost impossible for most people to get great pictures. Thanks so much for these stunning pictures!

    • Thanks so much Jane! It was such a beautiful wedding!

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.
