[Wedding] Amedea & Ray – Castle on the Hudson in Tarrytown, NY

By the time you read this, I will likely be 30,000 feet above Utah (likely) or Nova Scotia (if I somehow managed to get on the wrong plane). There is also a pretty good chance that Amedea & Ray are doing cartwheels at this very moment because we know how excited they are to finally get a peek of their wedding photos! As I mentioned in an earlier post, we love castles almost as much as we loved working with this couple. The bonus here is that a handful of their friends have also managed to somehow find themselves on our calendars this past year as well as this year. There’s nothing better than arriving to bridal prep and seeing a bunch of familiar faces :). Amedea and Ray both started their day at the Castle Hotel & Spa, just 40 minutes north of New York City.
