On a beautiful fall day Julia & Derek had their Hudson Gardens wedding & it was full of sunshine, a showstopper of a dress & all the love you can handle. Julia & Derek are the type of people that are deeply motivated in life & it shows in how they love each other & the love that surrounds them in a pretty epic support system. They had a wonderfully large wedding party that was full of friends & family that were so excited for them both.
Let me just tell you something amazing about this couple. They love each other but almost more importantly… They support each other. They push each other to be better. Julia is a brilliant clothing designer. She told me that Derek has been there for every single runway show she has ever done & supported her through the crazy long hours of sewing & designing.
Julia & Derek had a beautifully elegant and simple morning wedding which, turns out, was pretty lucky. We had a big storm sweep through later in the day but they were blessed with blue skies & warm weather in the morning. The elegant details throughout their day were reminiscent of rustic French decor. Julia’s dress was absolutely gorgeous & we had to get some spins throughout the day because it moved so beautifully. Julia gifted Derek some custom cufflinks that were made from a railroad spike that was a part of his family’s history with trains.
I loved spending their wedding day with them & I am so honored to have been able to be their photographer.
