Originally built in the 1800s as a textile manufacturing factory, the masterfully restored structures of The Roundhouse overlook a waterfall on Fishkill Creek. It’s an award-winning restaurant and an active hotel as well, so you and your guests can easily stay up there for your wedding weekend.
The Roundhouse is perfect for weddings in all seasons, with a beautiful garden for wedding ceremonies in warmer months and a huge industrial event space, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows, for ceremonies in the colder months.
Hilary and Mackenzie both got ready at the Roundhouse and we arranged for a first look on the property overlooking the waterfall. Afterwards, we walked around the immediate area of the venue for editorial couple’s portraits. The beautiful thing about The Roundhouse is that you don’t have to venture out at all to find lots of great locations for photography – it makes my job very easy and I know my couples appreciate not having to schlepp anywhere.
The Jewish wedding ceremony started with Hilary and Mackenzie signing a ketubah and then walking down the aisle with their parents. After the ceremony, the outdoor patio area overlooking the waterfall was set for cocktail hour as the finishing touches were applied to the wedding reception tables inside the event space.
I stole the couple for a few minutes towards the end of cocktail hour for a few blue hour portraits and I’m really happy with the results. I find that taking couples for portraits after the ceremony lets them relax a bit more now that any anxieties of the day are behind them.
The wedding reception continued inside the Roundhouse with lots of really emotional and heartfelt toasts from family and friends, and of course the hora was epic!
Here’s a bit of what I captured that day…
