The Rhinecliff Hotel Wedding was beautiful for Carrie and Jessica. When I had first arrived that hot, Summer morning, Carrie was a bit nervous, staying strong and quiet as she was surrounded by all her closest friends getting ready. In the suite one floor below, Jessica was seemingly calm and relaxed, taking in all that was going on among all her closest friends.

The level of details that were put into the planning was amazing. Everything from the color-coordinated, monogrammed shirts the ladies wore while getting ready to the gifts, and the handmade details ready for the ceremony and reception.

Just a short walk away was their First Look at the Rhinecliff Train Station. Three months earlier we had a great engagement session there, and it was even more amazing filled with all the emotion that came with their seeing one another for the first time. Carrie’s nerves washed away as they took their time enjoying this amazing private moment.

The ceremony space overlooked the magnificent Hudson River, and everyone was filled with anticipation. Owls and Lions provided the most amazing music, and are one of the most talented pair of musicians I’ve seen. I highly recommend them to anyone.

We had a great time taking all of the wedding party and family formals after the ceremony, both at The Rhinecliff Hotel as well as at the stairs to the train. The day was starting to cool off, and everyone was happy.

Guests were having so much fun at the reception, it could barely be contained. The dance floor was always packed, there was a line to the photo booth, which was actually a mirror, and energy spilled out to the surrounding deck to take advantage of the summer night air.

Yes, Carrie and Jessica wedding was beautiful at The Rhinecliff Hotel, one that I will remember for years to come. I wish them all the best on their journey.         -Alisa
