Erik and Nicole are an adventurous, passionate Seattle couple who love daring hikes and nature photography. They've tackled tough mountain passes such as Mt. St. Helens, and through these challenges, Erik and Nicole forged their relationship amidst the rugged and mercurial Northwest terrain. In fact, Erik proposed to Nicole during one of their hikes! Their vision for the wedding was no different - they wanted to celebrate near Nicole's hometown close to the quaint town of Beacon in New York's bucolic Hudson Valley. Mount Gulian on the Hudson offered the perfect historic backdrop for all their creative, do-it-yourself details, including a hand-made altar canopy made by Nicole's father, banquet tables named according to the mountains they've climbed, and a wonderful ensemble of hand-made invitations and programs! This was seriously beautiful stuff!
The party continued through the night in the spectacle-lit barn, and I was able to sneak Erik and Nicole out for a few portraits. Simply gorgeous.
