Le Chateau is located in South Salem, New York in Westchester County. It sits close to the New York and Connecticut Border. It is one of the most beautiful and scenic venues in the New York/Connecticut area with its stone walls and wood/stone architecture and beautiful vistas and sunsets to the west. It makes for such an elegant venue to hold you wedding. Add the colors of fall and autumn to the mix and it doesn't get much better than this. Such was the back drop for Devin and Joe's October wedding. Devin and Joe chose classic black for their wedding theme and wow did it make the bridal party look so awesome and elegant. As you know, as fall approaches the days become shorter and the lack of daylight can become a problem. To work around that, I suggest doing the portraits before the ceremony. Devin and Joe didn't want to see each other before the ceremony so I did separate portraits of Joe and his family and groomsmen outside with the beautiful grounds of Le Chateau followed by photos of Devin and her family and bridesmaids. We start the wedding day with photos of Joe and his family and groomsmen.
Next, I went inside Le Chateau for some getting ready photos of Devin and her bridesmaids, followed by family photos and photos of Devin and her bridesmaid and family.
With the getting ready photos and portraits complete it was time for their outdoor wedding ceremony. Devin and Joe read their personal vows which always makes for a touching and heart-felt wedding ceremony.
After the ceremony, it was time for portraits of the wedding party and family. As the sun started to set it was the perfect time for photos of Devin and Joe bathed in the late Autumn golden hour colors.
With the cocktail hour and portraits finished it was time to begin their wedding reception. The reception hall was beautifully decorated and the fall colors and sunset outside added to the beauty of the stunning wedding reception hall.
We begin the celebration with introductions, Devin and Joe's first dance and wedding toasts at the sweet heart table.
On their special request shoot list was a photo of Joe and his UCONN Alumni. Next came the parent dances-a mother and son dance with Joe and his mom followed by a father daughter dance with Devin and her father.
The dance floor was opened up by DJ Dave a.k.a. "Spin doctor" and everyone packed the dance floor. It was now time to cut their beautiful wedding cake.
With the cake cut, it was time to open up the dance floor for more fun, dancing and celebration. A joyous celebration it most certainly was.
What an amazing wedding celebration Devin and Joe. You and your friends and family were the best and made for such an incredible wedding day.
