As a wedding photographer, we have years of experience shooting various locations and venues in the New York Metro Area (literally – we’ve photographed over 300 weddings!). When navigating the wedding planning process, it can be so difficult to figure out venues, vendors, logistics, and budgets. That being said, we thought it would be helpful to give some information based on our experience photographing weddings at Blue Hill at Stone Barns. See all the details below!
Blue Hill at Stone Barns is located on a sprawling farm with beautiful grounds at 630 Bedford Road in Tarrytown, New York. Surrounded by rolling green hills, it is listed among the “World’s 50 Best Restaurants.” The restaurant is in a reconverted barn situated on a working farm and educational center. Much of its food and ingredients are sourced from surrounding farmers. This means a top-of-the-line dining experience for you and your guests.
Besides the incredible food, the beauty of the venue is in the service and space. Whether you’re in the courtyard or the hayloft, the incredible team will ensure every detail is accounted for.
You can have up to 175 of your closest friends and family by your side for the wedding. Multiple spaces, including the iconic hayloft, means that you have flexibility depending on weather and an easy flow for guests from event to event. You can even have your dance party semi-outdoors!
What’s also great about Blue Hill at Stone Barns is that it is perfectly located. Only 40 minutes from New York City, it is easily accessible for your guests but feels like a world away. Local hotels are close as well.
While the flowers may fade, the guests may go home, and your gown goes into the closet….your photos are the one thing from your wedding that holds its value. It’s not just about having someone with a professional camera to come and simply document your wedding.
You don’t want to scroll back through your photos and think “Yup, that’s what the day looked like.” You want to hold your photos in your hands and say, “This is what the day felt like.”
Investing in a photographer that can truly capture the ambience and love in your day. From the in-between candid moments between you and your partner to the laughs of your college best friends during the cocktail hour, every moment matters. A photographer who can not only capture these memories but also make you feel at ease and comfortable is the best investment you can make.
