A beautiful wedding at the hudson milliner
The fabulous hair/makeup artist Sabrina Rowe and I having been working with each other for quite some time now. On a catalogue job in Charleston, SC, she informed me she was looking for a wedding venue to get married to her fiancé, Joe Holdsworth, a still life and food photographer. She was initially looking for a destination, Costa Rica and Jamaica were contenders. This January I asked her to collaborate with me on a shoot in Hudson for my website, and I invited her to stay at the Hudson Milliner. It was love at first sight! She adored the Milliner and Hudson, NY so much, that she knew that her search for a wedding venue had reached its obvious conclusion: The Hudson Milliner!
The wedding took place on 11 March 2015. It was a delight! It was wonderful to get to know Joe better and meet their terrific friends. Originally, the ceremony was to take place in a gazebo in a park around the corner, but snow and mud had them move inside to the Top Hat Suite for their vows. It’s actually quite a lovely room for a small wedding in a pinch! I had a blast photographing the events, and I am amazed any of the photographs of the ceremony were in focus, as I was shooting through many tears!
