Flower-filled fall wedding in the Hudson Valley

Aug 21, 2022 | Weddings

Today's real wedding is giving us all the cosy fall feels and we're totally here for it. Hattie and Kevin tied the knot at Hattie's family home in the Hudson Valley, NY, in a gorgeous wedding full of history, culture and heaps of love. There are countless gorgeous details, from the autumnal flowers and stationery to Hattie's lace Berta gown and the forest green bridesmaid dresses, all beautifully captured by New York wedding photographer, Mary Dougherty.

From the bride, Hattie: “At first glance, our wedding venue looked just like that… a venue. But to me, it’s the house I grew up in. Nestled in the Hudson Valley, Bethlehem House, built in 1735, is where I took my first steps, played with my siblings, celebrated birthdays, studied for tests and navigated the awkward stages of my adolescence. It holds some of my most precious memories, and now holds perhaps the most precious one of all - getting married.

"Although Bethlehem House has been a private residence since the 18th century, ours was only the second wedding to take place here. In 1785, Elizabeth Nicoll married Major Richard Sill and who was in attendance? None other than Alexander Hamilton. According to my dad, there are records that state Hamilton danced the minuet with his wife, Eliza Schuyler, in our dining room. While we didn’t have any one that famous at our wedding, we did have both of our families and closest friends in the place that holds so much significance to my life. That, to me, is a kind of special that can’t be beat.”
