If you guys have been following le blog for a little while now, you might remember Chellise + Michael’s sweet W.Scott Chester portrait sesh turned surprise engagement. Well, flash forward a few months, and here these two are getting hitched at a magical, moss-covered estate in upstate New York. (That they found on Airbnb, btw.) From the intimate ceremony in the round to the crisp, early fall colors, it’s just as perfect as we knew it would be the minute we saw that engagement. And of course they invited W.Scott Chester back to capture it all on camera. That was a given!

From the bride… The inspiration for our wedding was quality time with our families. Our immediate families came up two days before the wedding and stayed for two days after. ​The big, cozy house ​was perfect for a lot of cooks in the spacious kitchen with a big old wood dining table and lots of wine glasses. ​We laughed for days together. It felt like home.

Instead of carrying a bouquet, Chellise had two flower crowns made for her to choose from in beautiful fall colors. Love that!

Chellise walked down the aisle to a live rendition of “Viking Heart” by Miniature Tigers, played by a close friend.

The food… Oh my gosh, the food was insane. No salmon and asparagus here, people! We hired chef Simon Glenn, the owner of Tchoup Shop here in NYC, and let him do his thing! ​I’m still getting emails from family asking me for his recipes. I don’t have them!

Chellise says, Towards the end of the night, one of our guests surprised us by getting everyone outside by the dock for an impromptu fireworks show. We thought it would be some cute little cracks in the sky, but these were BOOMING, GIANT, FOURTH OF JULY ON THE HUDSON RIVER, TOTALLY ILLEGAL, GRAND FINALE FIREWORKS!! With each boom, my heart jumped up into my throat. The sky was ours. This went on for 10 minutes. I’ve never seen fireworks like that, and I probably never will again.

So magical. Congrats guys!
