Sonia & Paul | Mount Tremper Arts, Hudson Valley Wedding Photographer

Sonia and Paul are the effortlessly beautiful couple that so many aspire to be -- relaxed, kind, intelligent, and so adorably in love. Their wedding day matched their personalities perfectly: A laid back setting in beautiful Hudson Valley at Mount Tremper Arts, a place where artists can retreat in creativity and reflection. Sonia got ready in a minimalistic yet modern cabin-like Airbnb in the woods up a winding path from the main venue, and the two did their first look against a panoramic backdrop of lush trees and mountain views. Their ceremony was held outside, in a clearing surrounded by tall trees and blue sky while their adorable dog, Bayes, frolicked in the grassy fields as the couple exchanged vows. Paul's dad officiated and recounted the hilarious and endearing story of how the two went out of their way to fall in love, and they ended the night by dancing under a tent beneath the star, with the smell of campfire in the air. A beautiful and relaxed day full of warmth and laughter. Here are some photos to re-tell the story of their day:
