I can't believe this is my first time browsing this sub-forum ! i would love to share my wedding as well !

We got married on 9/18/2010, on a beautiful, self sustainable farm in Westchester, NY (40 min. outside of NYC) called Blue Hill at Stone Barns. We picked this place as both of us are foodies and just really appreciate farm fresh food. It was a gorgeous, sunny warm day; perfect the Indian summer weather. The wedding was very sweet and intimate with just 70 guests, which was exactly what we wanted. As many of you PS'ers already know, I am super picky and am almost impossible to please (!), so I decided not hiring a wedding planner at all. I relied heavily on Etsy, sleepless nights spent hand making a lot of the items for the wedding, and everything was pulled together by a handful of vendors who truly cared and shared my vision !

Frankie, you look simply stunning and the wedding looks amazing!! Love your dress and earrings and everything!!!
Blue Hill is a great place to have a wedding!

I love Blue Hill. We had my dh's office christmas party at the Blue Hill in the West Village in Manhattan a few years ago (4 years ago maybe?) and it was awesome. The food is so fresh and delicious.

Your flower girl and ring bearer are just so precious!
