The joining of two hearts in marriage is an amazing event. Today, most couples understand that their wedding celebration should be personal and touching, and full of meaning. This describes Rachel and Jason's wedding to the tee. The day started beautifully. Autumn in the Hudson Valley is a beautiful season, the perfect season for any Hudson Valley wedding. Rachel and Jason's ceremony was celebrated at a church in Fishkill, a distance from their reception which was held a the West Hills Golf and Country Club in Middletown, NY.
West Hills is a new addition in an elegant group of venues run by the Bonura family. This venue was exceptional, and like other Bonura venues, was exceptionally run. Jason and Rachel wanted a unique and special experience for their wedding and West Hills was a perfect wedding venue for their wishes. For brides and grooms seeking classy hospitality, a breathtakingly beautiful golf course, and a convenient location, you'll want to take a tour of this venue.
When we arrived, the West Hills team led by Mallory Mayer had prepared enough golf carts for the entire bridal party and our photographers to take us on the golf course. The grounds are picturesque, and offered great opportunities to create beautiful pictures. The reception area is equally stunning, surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens, terraces and fountains. These grounds, right outside the main ballroom, are ideal for on site ceremonies. In Rachel and Jason's case, this area was a perfect stage for family photos. Something else worth mentioning, are the stunning stone fountains which were illuminated in the bride's favorite color.
The night went on without any glitches, and everyone enjoyed the superb atmosphere, delicious food, and great service.
