Congratulations to Liz & Kyle whose wedding we had the honor of photographing yesterday at the Tuthill House in Gardiner, New York — one of our favorite venues.

And not only because it is so close that we can walk there from our studio, but also because it offers a wide range of photographic possibilities.  Tuthill House restaurant, being a part of the Tuthilltown Spirits Distillery, includes on its property the various distillery houses, an open field, and a creekside ceremony spot plus plenty of room for a reception tent.

Here’s how Liz and Kyle’s day unfolded at Tuthill House, starting with bridal getting ready images and portraiture in the guest house behind the restaurant (which happen to be pet-friendly, allowing our bride Liz to have the company of her two dogs).

Then it was the groom’s turn for portraits at the Tuthilltown Spirits Gift Store & Tasting Room.  We love the bare woods and all the tasting room details, like the barrels and souvenir assortments.

After groom portraits, it was time for the first look outside Tuthill’s guest house, and here’s how it went down.

 

 

As our bride and groom fell in love over the groom’s blue pickup truck, a miniature of the vehicle was on hand to carry the wedding rings to the ceremony.  And our couple posed for portraits by the full-size model too!

After portraits, it was time for the reception along the creek which runs beside Tuthill House.  Sunflowers arrangements by Flowers By Elissa — one of our favorite florists based right next-door to Tuthill House — brightened up  the grounds with bold splashes of color.

Then our couple slipped outdoors for a stroll in the field behind the distillery, enjoying the sunset and a private moment together.

Our night ended in the creekside reception tent where Liz and Kyle shared their first dance.

The bride and groom then invited everyone onto the dance floor for fun and games with lightsticks which made for some humorous candids.

Finally there was the bride and groom’s “cake cutting” — actually the sharing of a donut from a donut tower provided by Torino Bakery of Newburgh, which (as you can see) gave our bride quite a laugh.
