Charissa and Zak’s Magical and Misty Onteora Mountain House Wedding

 Everyone knows the old wives tale of rain on your wedding day being good luck, and while it’s never ideal when you’re planning an outdoor wedding, we think that Zak and Charissa lucked out with some absolutely stunning, misty and dreamy photos, from Lisa Hibbert Photograpy. Their nuptials and celebration took place over Memorial Day weekend at the idyllic Onteora Mountain House.

Charissa was such a delightful and happy bride to work with.  She selected our off the rack Cottage Garden package, but customized the colors and upgraded it all with a beautiful chuppah design!  This design was so pretty, that this optimistic couple instructed us to set it all up outside, no matter what happened weather wise.  So with the driving rain and wind, Bryan and I worked our magic, carrying buckets of fresh flowers, wires, moss and a ladder to set up this beautiful structure.  As we worked, we were serenaded by some amazing Broadway voices, making the set up even more worthwhile!  We were very excited for Charissa and Zak as we watched all of the moving pieces come together; guests began to arrive, vocals were fine tuned, and the other vendors began setting up.

Everyone was so hopeful that the weather would let up just a little for this sweet couple, however Mother Nature had other plans and Zak and Charissa were wed inside, under the beautiful pavilion.  Luckily this was Onteroa Mountain House, so the view was still out of this world!

Outdoor pictures were taken a little later in the day, when the weather did decide to cooperate a little more.  While no one ever wishes for rain on their wedding day, we have to admit that some of our favorite photos are often of rainy day weddings, and Charissa and Zak’s is no exception! We wish them both nothing but bright skies, beautiful song, and all of the happiness in the world!!!
