Moody colors and the natural landscape set the ambiance for Meghan & Mario’s fall woodsy wedding in Monroe, New York.
From the photographer: Meghan and Mario had an intimate and romantic fall wedding day at Arrow Park Lake & Lodge in Monroe, NY. Their elegant and modern wedding day included 50 of their closest friends and family celebrating their union tucked away in the woods at the secluded Arrow Park Mansion. Their wedding day was filled with hints of Spanish and Italian accents to represent their family heritages, including three Spanish guitarist serenading throughout cocktail hour and traditional Spanish figurines to represent Meghan and Mario. Their day included snow flurries and bright sunshine, but everyone was still able to enjoy an indoor/outdoor patio ceremony overlooking the river and valley below. After the ceremony, the guests and couple danced the night away.
How he asked: Mario proposed to me during our trip to Spain. The entire trip was amazing but this particular day was just so much fun. We took a day trip driving along northern coast of Spain, stopping at certain areas that interested us like an old artist that spent his life living on coast and made sculptures with the rocks. We also found the most amazing white sand beach that was almost hidden behind pine trees! Our day ended at Cape Finisterre, which translates to ‘end of the earth’. We were alone and sitting on top of a steep rocky cliff over Atlantic Ocean when Mario asked me a question in Spanish that I didn’t understand at first (ha!) as he help me work through the translation I started to tear up and said YES!
