Hudson Valley Weddings | Sept 2021

If you’re going to have an ‘over the top’ Hudson Valley Wedding, it may as well be at the Culinary Institute of America! Typically known for its amazing food and famous chefs who’ve trained there, the venue now hosts weddings too! The CIA can be found in the heart of the Hudson Valley. Couples looking for a wedding venue that is modern and luxurious will enjoy the CIA! It is easy to see why Rachel and Matthew were drawn to the CIA when hosting their wedding in September of 2021!

Rachel and Matthew wanted a venue that was far away from their NYC lifestyle. They wanted a getaway that would allow guests enjoy the Hudson Valley. They also needed a space that could accommodate their large wedding count! The CIA was a perfect fit for them!

On a gorgeous September afternoon, Rachel and Matthew enjoyed their wedding! Celebrating with family and friends, these two were surrounded by their favorite people. Emotional moments during first looks helped set the mood for the day. Personal vows that they wrote each other left everyone in tears. A lively reception that kept guests out on the dance floor! Just some of the many moments that transpired. Rachel and Matthew’s wedding was one for the books!

MEET Summer

Photographer, artist, mother, outdoor lover, inspired by movement & motion, good light, and you.

I 'm a wife and mother. I love lazy Saturday mornings with a cup of coffee. I prefer nights on the couch with my family but also enjoy craft beers and apps in a swanky bar. I love being outdoors and I'm eternally grateful I get to experience all four seasons! I dig personal touches & homemade items over commercial goods. Admittedly, I also love shopping on Amazon Prime.

When I'm not in the Hudson Valley, you can find me enjoying time up in the Adirondacks at my second home. I find myself drawn to nature and the world we live in and often let it act as my muse when shooting.
