My parents’ garden is nothing short of breathtaking. So much so that Alex and I chose it as the backdrop for our wedding. And following our wedding, my parents decided to double its size making it a truly stunning and serene sanctuary. For the past couple of summers I have photographed their gorgeous garden (here and here), and I felt that it was important to continue the tradition this year as well. These photos were taken in early June, right after a rainfall and right before sunset.
When I first visited Stone Barns last August, I knew I wanted to make a return trip with Alex so that he could experience the impressive Agricultural Center firsthand. Here are some photos from our trip last month to the 80-acre, four-season farm in Tarrytown, NY.
