Don't let the name fool you, the Mohonk Mountain House is nothing like a house. It is, in fact, a magnificent fortress like hotel with the most beautiful cliffs and waterway. Melinda and Scott knew that this would be the perfect place for their marriage to one another.
The day started with Melinda getting ready with both mothers, her daughters and her flower girls. Melinda looked beautiful and was full of smiles.
Scott was getting ready in another room at the resort with his son. Both he and Melinda were such nice, down to earth people. It was really such a pleasure being able to witness and document the love between the two of them.
A beautiful arch made by Scott and Melinda was set inside for the ceremony. What I really loved about their decor was the flowers at the entrance of the aisle, so that as Melinda walked down there were flowers behind her as well. During the ceremony the couple and all of their children performed a sand ceremony which was a really special touch.
The reception was in a beautiful open air building located on top of the cliffs. Round tables were set with sweet hydrangea centerpieces and twinkle lights hung from the ceiling. The newlyweds started the party off right with an impressive choreographed dance. The dance had spins, dips and lifts and they executed it perfectly.
Just as the sun was setting we made our way out to the cliff tops to take some stunning portraits overlooking The Mohonk Mountain House. I love how Scott and Melinda had so much fun taking photos, they were just dancing with each other in the evening sun.
