You know those times you just look at life and can’t stop smiling? That was this. From the moment I pulled up to the 1890 farm house, my heart skipped a beat! By the end of the evening, I could feel my laugh lines – but that should be expected among such great company! Friends mingled among and admired the restoration of the Chambers Hardy Farm House. Laurie, the artist and proprietor, was gifted the house when she purchased the land (the previous owners offered to tear it down, but thankfully Laurie insisted on it remaining)! Family and friends helped her restore this incredible property to be utilized for small weddings, events, photo shoots, workshops, and more! The house oozes character and charm, and I’m completely honored to be the first to photograph it! Historic houses are my muse, so I was in snap happy heaven!

The afternoon was spent enjoying custom cocktails and beverages before everyone sat down to a delicious dinner provided by Albany Bistro. As the sun fell behind the tree line, the flickering fire illuminated the joy on everyone’s face. Glasses clinked with cheers and conversation lingered as the stars began to shine bright in the countryside! Such a beautiful way to end a perfect day!
