A DIY LOVE CELEBRATION IN MONROE, NY
Olivia and Camilo’s summer wedding at Arrow Park was full to the brim with love and emotion.
The whole wedding was a collaborative project where parents, cousins and sisters participated. Even half a dozen guests stood up during the ceremony to read poems and quotes inspired by Olivia and Camilo’s love story.
After the ceremony, officiated by the couple’s mothers, the day continued with many heartfelt toasts and dances. All throughout the day, Camilo, Olivia and their loved ones showcased so much love and appreciation for each other. There were lots of tears, hugs, and hands being held. It was moving to see so much support from everyone in the room.
Arrow Park was the perfect backdrop for Olivia and Camilo’s wedding. It is a beautiful stone building with lots of charming rooms, from a sun room to a huge library with windows overlooking the property. The place is full of original details like mosaic bathrooms and functioning fire places. The best thing about such a venue is that not a lot of decorating is necessary to make it look special, as it is already so unique and tastefully decorated.
We got to take pictures in and out of the house, as well as on the front porch overlooking the lake. The building sits on a massive property at the end of a very long, very dramatic tree-lined lane and truly feels like a secret gem in the middle of nature.
I invite you to take a look at the pictures to see just how lovely Arrow Park is, and how Olivia and Camilo’s love shone through all the images. Congrats to the both of them!
