Good afternoon, y’all! Today we have Ashley and Dan’s most excellent Spanish Villa wedding on the blog and it is a doozy! They got married at Foxfire Mountain’s new venue, La Colina, in Goshen, NY. In fact, they are the first couple to get married there, which makes us the first photographers to shoot there. Pretty rad, huh?
We have to admit it took all of five seconds for us to fall in love with the place. Though we aren’t too sure of the structure’s history, we do know that Foxfire took over ownership and completely renovated the space, turning it into the ideal spot for relaxed, intimate weddings with style. One thing we really loved is how much it reminded us of the coveted venue, Race and Religious, in New Orleans. It has a very similar feel, but both stand completely on their own with plenty of differences. Still, the similarities are readily apparent and very welcomed to this region of the US.
Ashley and Dan were a total joy to work with. They are so relaxed and have the raddest low-key vibe. Not fans of the spotlight, they chose to forego many of the usual trappings of a wedding day. Opting for a swift ceremony officiated by a close friend, skipping traditional first dances, a wedding cake, and more, their focus was on enjoying their day with every person who attended. Ashley even traded out her wedding gown for an awesome red and white summer dress mid-reception. Safe to say, she rocked both out of this world. To be honest, we absolutely loved everything about their day. It was special and focused on what mattered most to the couple – The moments with the people they love most.
We hope you all enjoy this day as much as we did. We can’t wait to get back!
Take care and talk soon!
