Romantic Vintage Wedding at Buttermilk Falls Inn • Sarah Tew Photography


While you're recovering from your Turkey hangover, here's a little pretty for your Friday. This romantic vintage wedding from Sarah Tew Photography is as gorgeous as they come. Michael and Sarah described their wedding style perfectly "a little bit of laid back, vintage, slightly nerdy charm". Buttermilk Fall Inn and Spa in Hudson Valley, NY was the perfect backdrop for their incredibly detailed and stunning day. Brides and Grooms: get ready to pin all of these incredible details! 

From the Bride: Michael and I really wanted an outdoor wedding venue that would allow us to hold all of our events on site. We fell in love with Buttermilk Falls Inn with the beautiful waterfalls, pond, weeping willows and river views. After that, we just hoped to add a little bit of ourselves - a little bit of laid back, vintage, slightly nerdy charm. Michael wanted some darker colors - navy and dark red and I wanted something light and springy - a little bit of blush and cream and we both agreed accent this with our favorite metal, antique gold. We chose to keep the bridal party style a little more relaxed with short dresses and dark blue suits. The outdoor sites were gorgeous already, and only more beautiful with the addition of our florist's beautiful creations.For the reception, we wanted to interject a little bit of our medical/epidemiological sides. Instead of table numbers, we used black and white symbols for guests to find their tables. Once at the table, they would find an explanation of a famous historic medical or public health figure which correlated to their symbol. It was a little confusing and a little scientific, but very us. I loved the cream lace tablecloths and chose to accent these with brass candlesticks, votives and just a few flowers. After an amazing dinner, we just wanted to have a great time with our friends and family. Dueling pianos was definitely the way to go!

From Sarah: Sarah & Michael live in Baltimore and were married on a beautiful Saturday in May up at one of my favorite venues in New York’s Hudson Valley, Buttermilk Falls Inn. Though there was a chance of rain it held out long enough that this sweet couple was able to have their ceremony on the patio overlooking the Hudson River. I loved the vintage style veil Sarah wore with her dress, which was also stunning and perfect on her! Their ceremony was officiated by the groom’s brother and he did a great job— meanwhile the groom’s brother had us all laughing by brandishing a sword at a key moment— it was all so well done! While guests strolled up through the grounds to the Barn where the cocktail hour and reception were, I got to make some pretty portraits with Sarah & Michael— the ponds, the waterfall, the giant weeping willow trees, this place has so much to work with! For their reception the couple had hired a unique ‘dueling pianos’ act to provide music, and after some delicious farm-to-table food the guests were up and on the dance floor! I was so thrilled to be there to capture this lovely wedding— congratulations to Sarah & Michael!
