Arielle and Chris were eloped last July at the Central Park Conservatory in NYC. Since they didn’t have many family members or friends present, they wanted to have a celebration to share their love and what better time than their one year anniversary. We were very honored to be there for the event at Bassinova-on-Hudson, a private estate right along the banks of the Hudson River outside Catskill, NY.
For their special day, Arielle and Christopher asked for all-candid event coverage and we’re happy to share with you these images from their Bassinova-on-Hudson event.
For Christopher who is an architect, it was important that we capture the house that is the heart of Bassinova-on-Hudson, as well as candid imagery of the guests gathered there for the event.
To start off the festivities, the couple addressed their guests from Bassinova’s balcony, thanking everyone for coming on the anniversary of their first year of marriage. Then they shred a “first kiss” to the applause from below.
The action then moved to an outdoor reception tent on Bassinova’s great lawn, close to the banks of the Hudson River.
And here’s a look inside the tent, with a birch tree sapling on the center post lending the space an enchanted forest feel. The table settings were classic and classy, with floral arranges by locally based The Rosery Flower Shop.
The bride and groom then made their entrance to the tent in a slow walk across the lawn, seeming to savor every second of the journey together.
After the bride and groom made their entrance, they shared an emotional first dance.
With DJ Robert Greel spinning the tunes, Arielle and Christopher partied the night away until long after the the sun went down behind the Bassinova House.
Here’s wishing Arielle and Christopher many more happy years of marriage together!
