Bold + Classic Summer Wedding at Diamond Mills Hotel • Julia Rebecca Photography


We adored this wedding from Julia Rebecca the moment we saw it, and we're so excited to relive it again today! Victoria + Kyle's wedding at The Diamond Mills Hotel was the perfect blend of modern + classic, with a unique spin that makes it completely timeless and fun. With their bridal party in blush and navy (and the girls in floral print heels!) the spotlight was on the bride and groom, and Victoria's gown and statement necklace completely stole the show. From the incredible floral design by Douglas Koch and the elegant, hand-lettered wedding suite, to the backdrop of downtown Coxsackie and of course, a couple completely in love... their day was absolute perfection!

From Julia: When Victoria reached out to me two years ago, I knew immediately that I would love to capture her and Kyle’s wedding day. 

We spent the morning at Victoria's parents home in the Hudson Valley, where the girls had their hair and makeup done while exchanging stories. Glory Addie from Upstate Roots Salon did an amazing job with all of the girl’s updos. Tori’s loose curls were stunning with her lace and glitter dress and long veil. Tori’s statement necklace was amazing and her gold heels were perfect. Tori has great style and she knocked it out of the park when it came to styling her wedding. Her bridesmaids looked fabulous in their short pink dresses, with flower print heals. I was in LOVE with her flowers by Douglas Koch Designs of NYC. The clutches that the girls had were so perfect for the feel of the day and something I had never seen before!

Prior to meeting up with the girls, I did a little scouting for locations in downtown Coxsackie for after the ceremony at St. Mary’s Church. I found a super cute row of old buildings and we had a great time taking photographs with the wedding party after the ceremony. The girls were troopers even when we had to pull the umbrellas out because of a little rain. The umbrella photographs are some of my favorites from the day!

The reception was held at the beautiful Diamond Mills Hotel and Tavern in Saugerties, NY. Having grown up in Saugerties, I am so glad to see a wedding venue that matches the historic nature of the town and overlooks the bridge and waterfalls. Bethany, Diamond Mills in-house wedding planner, did a smashing job with organizing the reception and was a doll the whole night. Friends and family danced the night away after dinner to the live band, Grand Central Station.
