Faith and Jack’s spring Glynwood Farm wedding in Cold Spring, NY was magical in so many ways; a couple made for each other, a wedding unique to them, and an ideal setting mixed with an abundance of warmth, love, and a rainbow!
I actually first met Faith and her business partner, Nichki, eight years ago. At that time, we were all just venturing out on a new path. I was just starting out as a professional photographer and they had just purchased Letterbox Farm Collective in Hudson, NY. I was at their farm photographing it on my first magazine assignment ever for Edible Hudson Valley magazine. The photos later appeared on the cover and in the pages of the Summer 2015 issue.
I adored Nichki and Faith the very first time I met them. I could not help but get caught up in their enthusiasm for this huge turning point in their lives. Years later, Nichki approached me about photographing the farm again for her Chelsea Green book, Raising Rabbits for Pastured Meat. Again, it was such a pleasure being in their company and on their farm. So, when Faith asked me to photograph another milestone in her life, her and Jack’s wedding, I was overjoyed.
Glynwood Farm Wedding Photography
Farm photography has been a specialty of mine since I began photography and when I have an opportunity to combine it with my other specialty, weddings, I am in my perfect element. Glynwood Farm is a local to me non-profit, whose mission is to “ensure the Hudson Valley is a region defined by food, where farming thrives.” Glynwood is also located in my town of Cold Spring, NY. I know that being a farmer is not easy but like Glynwood, I understand its importance. I have vowed to be a friend of the farmer and over the years I have volunteered and worked with farmers at a discount.
I am also well familiar with Gynwood Farm. I have photographed Glynwood’s fundraisers, workshops, and fields too many times to count. In addition, my first professional photography job was photographing at Glynwood for the book, “Connecting: Celebrating the People and Places of the Hudson Highlands”. I have also photographed a few private events hosted at Glynwood Farm over the years. However, this was my first time photographing a Gynwood Farm wedding.
Glynwood Farm is gorgeous. It is an epitome of a bucolic farm. Glynwood offers breathtaking scenic views of rolling hills, rustic barns, old buildings, and towering trees. It is simply stunning and a perfect venue for events and celebrations of all kinds. I was so happy for Faith when she reached out to let me know that she was getting married, when she let me know that she would be having a Glynwood farm wedding and that she would like me to photograph it, I was ecstatic.
Love & Rainbows
I met Jack for the first time about a year before their Glynwood Farm wedding. I immediately had a sense that he and Faith were made for each other. Their connection felt like it spanned generations and that it finally came to these two. They feel from the “same cloth” but different enough to complement each other perfectly. They are both intelligent and live their lives with intention. Their wedding definitely felt like it was a reflection of this, of who they are. I respected so much how they did not get caught up in every wedding day tradition and did things their way to ensure they would fully embrace their wedding day. I especially liked Faith’s gorgeous cinnamon-colored skirt that was hand-sewn by her mother.
Yes, the weather did keep us a little worried all day. The ceremony had to be held inside because of slight rain but I thought it made for the coziest Glynwood Farm wedding ceremony. Eventually, the clouds cleared out for the rest of the wedding. And it felt magical when a rainbow appeared right at the beginning of their reception followed by a gorgeous pink sunset.
