Heather and Nick’s Rhinebeck Wedding: Dogs, Dragonflies and Dreams

I’m often asked to do more extensive blog posts, especially when the historic Hudson Valley plays a big part in the festivites. I thought Heather and Nick’s Dragonfly Themed wedding was the perfect one to choose to showcase some of what the hudson Valley offers, so here goes!

Heather and Nick were married on July 1st, 2011 in Historic Rhinebeck.  Heather got ready at the famed Beekman Arms in Rhinebeck, which was the perfect place to do their “first look.” Bentley, their Jack Russel, was present for this important moment and he ws glad to see his mom for sure!  Hair by Carol Gruden of A Step A Head Salon in Poughkeepsie, Gorgeous makeup by Karen from LaV Beauty, Flowers by Floral Fantasy in Rhinebeck, Cake by The Pastry Garden in Poughkeepsie, Jack Russell by Dale Mountain’s Russel Refuge of Rhinebeck!

The ceremony was at the beautiful Dutch Reformed Church in Rhinebeck, and the formals were done at Mills Mansion, both of which are also quite historic locations. Reception was a short walk to the reception at the American Legion of Rhinebeck. Dragonfly decor was present everywhere…from the invitation, to the bouquet, to the flashing lights at the reception. Heather and Nick love their animals, and the tables were all themed after an animal in their lives…especially Bentley….who I’m sure thought HE was the groom!!

    Cheryl, this is such a nice write up and the pictures are beautiful. I know I’ll have a difficult time choosing those I want to frame and those I want for the scrapbook album I will be making. Great memories! Than-x!
