What could I say? When it comes to this absolutely stunning wedding at the Tappan Hill Mansion Wedding Venue in Tarrytown NY. I mean, really… the bride is gorgeous, the groom is one of the coolest guys I’ve ever met, and their entire day was fun, exciting, and every single detail was taken into consideration…and I really mean all of it – it just felt good, relaxed, and emotional. And when it comes to a wedding day, that’s exactly how it should feel. And for Kristina & Mark’s wedding, that’s exactly how it was. And it reminded me exactly why I love being a Tappan Hill Mansion Wedding Photographer.
Kristina got ready in the bridal suite, which has to just be one of coziest rooms at the mansion. It’s right on the second floor, it has that high-end vibe, but it also has a lot of character. And sure, her bridesmaids were running a little bit behind schedule, but what’s a wedding if it was on schedule, right?
The sun was out in full glory. It was warm, but there was a super nice breeze swirling around to keep us all cool. And whenever we found shade, we certainly made the best of it.
Mark was getting ready in the grooms suite, just a few steps away from Kristina. And being so close all they wanted to do was see each-other! It was so cute how much excitement there was in the air, and so they took a final couple drinks to get that celebration started and hop to have their first look.
So let’s chat about the tappan hill mansion wedding venue really quickly
I personally love Tappan Hill. It is located on the former estate of Mark Twain in the heart of the Hudson Valley and just 45 minutes away from Manhattan.
The property is stunning with luxurious rooms, gardens and best of all – away from all city noise, all traffic, and you really feel tucked away from the rest of the world. You park your car off to the side of the property, and then you have a quick little walk 100 feet off to your left to get ready in their wedding reception building… and simply start to just relax.
All of the wedding crew on site are super friendly, super welcoming, answering everyone’s questions, and the entire building and grounds around it are impeccably clean and well landscaped. Everything about this place just screamed chic to me.
From the first look overlooking the mansion, the cocktail overlooking the Hudson River, to the ceremony site on the terrace, to the indoor reception hall with beautiful ambiance, I really can recommend this Westchester wedding venue without hesitation. And I don’t say that lightly, either. It’s a really beautiful place. And because it’s just so easy to access from any major highway, it’s really quite simple to get to. It’s a great option if you’re considering a high-end wedding.
now, back to Kristina & Mark’s wedding!
I could write about how beautiful everything was at The Tappan Hill Mansion on Kristina’s wedding that day, but wedding photos could speak better than I ever could and tell you how much this couple love each other and how Tappan Hill was the perfect venue for their wedding
