What could be more beautiful than a New York elopement over the Hudson River? Well, this BHLDN wedding dress is pretty close… Timothy & Natasha made their way to New York due to the pandemic. With a small intimate wedding, their day started with a hike and s’mores! They went for a casual weekend with summer camp vibes (love), including a taco night and wine tasting. Honestly, we’re pretty jealous we weren’t invited…

Due to the pandemic, we ended up with a small, intimate wedding weekend located at an amazing Airbnb in the Hudson Valley.

FAVOURITE MOMENT

My favourite moment was hearing Tim’s vows and being married by one of our best friends. The entire ceremony was special and something I’ll never forget. We also have a video that one of our best friends made for us, with clips from all of the guests who were unable to attend in person due to the pandemic! This is absolutely the best keepsake, as it has all of the wishes and kind words from everyone important to us. 

FLORAL BOUQUET

My best friend took up floral arranging during quarantine, which worked in my favour! I gave her free rein on my bouquet. Even saying my colour palette was ‘rainbow’. She found a wholesale flower shop in the suburbs and crafted the most gorgeous arrangement! We looked for greenery the night before the wedding in the forest behind the Airbnb, which made my bouquet even more special.

We love how each photo from this wedding just exudes happiness! Doing things your way truly takes the stress out of everything…

The most important thing to us was to splurge on quality photography. A Photographer can really make or break the flow of the day. Luckily, Astray Photography made for a relaxing atmosphere where we never felt rushed! They also helped with posing and sought out awesome spots, which led to some amazing photographs.
