Birch Hill is quickly becoming one my favorite wedding venues near Albany, NY. As a wedding photographer I love working near where I live, but this venue is also a top notch: it is spacious, staffed with helpful and energetic people; offers great food and is absolutely beautiful inside and out. I've shot many events there, and have never been disappointed. To get ready for their wedding, Rachel and Andre chose Comfort Inn & Suites in Castleton-on-Hudson, which provides a beautiful backdrop in their foyer for first look images.
Andre and Rachel had a beautiful wedding ceremony by the fireplace at Birch Hill, then moved on to a Conservatory ballroom for their cocktail hour, then Columbia room was opened up to reveal a gorgeous reception hall where all the festivities took place! The whole evening was top notch and we all had a blast dancing (including me, a wedding photographer, with a bride, a video of which is floating somewhere on Facebook).
Just wanted to wish Dre and Rachel many years of happiness together and the desire to overcome all obstacles together. Please enjoy this beautiful slideshow by Lana Ortiz Photography of Birch Hill wedding of Andre & Rachel Fulton.
