Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel Wedding

Hudson Valley Wedding Photographer {Emily & Joe}

I first heard Emily and Joe’s sweet (literally and figuratively- keep reading to find out why!) love story on their engagement session while we wandered around The Cloisters in New York City. They were lucky enough to incorporate some of their sweet story into their wedding day!

Their Love Story:

Emily and Joe have been together for over 10 years. They first met while they were both working in their local mall; Emily at Lindt Chocolate and Joe at FYE. After a lot of free chocolate samples and small conversations they finally gained enough courage to express their mutual interest in each other. The rest is history!

The Wedding Day:

When all you envision for your wedding day is fun, you invite a lot of your friends and family to celebrate all night! To get the fun started right away, the officiant took a few minutes in the beginning of the ceremony to have guests mingle with one another and introduce themselves. I thought this was so sweet and thoughtful and really gave such a positive feel to wedding.

Emily and Joe exchanged ‘I do’s’ at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel in Poughkeepsie, New York. We took Emily and Joe out onto the streets and cars were honking and joining in on the fun as we took photos.

I’m 100% positive that Emily and Joe’s vision turned reality as their night progressed. They made sure to dance and spend time with all their friends and family. Congratulations to this lovely couple as they continue on their journey to forever.

Make sure to keep your eye out for those Lindt chocolates as you’re scrolling! Enjoy!
