A common piece of advice bestowed upon brides-to-be is to never neglect details. Details allow you to personalize your wedding by infusing your personality and taste into the décor, attire and atmosphere. Thanks to the genius of wedding planners and supportive friends and family, brides-to-be are able to trust that their visions will be brought to life.
We had the pleasure of watching the magic unfold during the Flowerdew wedding held at The Locusts on Hudson. Wedding planners Mayra and Xochitl, founders of AAD Creates, otherwise known as “Always a Blogsmaid,” curated a romantic ambiance that was exceptional in its simplicity. The whimsical wedding was captivating and unforgettable.
Now, let’s dive in!
The Locusts on Hudson is located in Dutchess County about 100 miles north of New York City. The grounds are nestled in the bountiful Hudson River Valley home to the Hudson River. The sight is made up of 76 arcs of lush forest, meadows, pond gardens and lawns that include a pool, tennis court, stables, greenhouse, gazebo, cottages, and a fully renovated 19th century barn. The manor was built in 1941 and due to extensive renovations it continues to stand strong and is cherished by many.
