Just over a decade ago, we set out on to paths that would take us each through fine art degrees from Parsons, the excitement of living in the East Village, and the formative years of starting our careers in New York City.
Along the way we had the good fortune of sharing our journeys; with one another, two loving and supportive families, and a tight-knit circle of friends that would only grow closer navigating the peaks and valleys of young adult life.
As we covered more ground, our friendship blossomed and our steps grew further intertwined. We began to look down the road and could glimpse at where a trail blazed together might lead. We fell in love, moved to Brooklyn, traveled the world, fostered each other's creative pursuits, and celebrated countless milestones along the way.
Now, we are so excited to invite you to join us as we take the definitive step in joining our paths as husband and wife!
Where We're Getting Married
We will be getting married in upstate New York at the beautiful M&D Farm in Westerlo.
Because of its distance from accommodations, we have decided to spend the weekend in Hudson, NY and recommend that you do the same! It's only a 30-minute drive from M&D Farm and we will be providing a shuttle back and forth between Hudson and the venue on our wedding day.
Please include in your RSVP whether or not you will want a spot on the shuttle so we can get an accurate head-count. Due to the venue's policy, we will be having a 21+ wedding. If you have a special situation where your attendance is contingent on your young child attending as well please reach out to Sean & Jenna directly.
How To Get There
Hudson is just a 2-3-hour escape from New York City via train or car, though we recommend taking Amtrak to save money and stress. If you are traveling by air, JFK, LaGuardia, and Newark are all about the same distance from Penn Station, where you can board the train. If you are planning on Amtrak, we also highly recommend purchasing your tickets in advance to save money. If you plan on traveling by car, the Taconic State Parkway is a beautiful drive up, just take exit NY-82 to Hudson.

Where to Stay
Hudson has great options for lodging but we advise booking early, as accomodations
tend to fill up quickly. We recommend staying as close to Warren Street as possible, although the entire town is walkable. The hotels in Hudson are beautiful but are generally more expensive than Airbnbs.
A second option is to stay in Albany which is also nearby, but you will be responsible for your own transportation to and from the wedding venue.

Why We Love Hudson, N.Y.
Hudson is well known for its restaurants, hotels, Airbnbs, and vintage treasures. We recommend Grazin’ Diner for a burger, Le Perche for brunch, Talbott & Arding for some amazing local cheese, and The Maker Lounge for the best cocktail in town. If you're interested in shopping, there are several antique, vintage and thrift stores along Warren Street.

The Day Before
We will be having a small welcome party at TBD at 7 pm. Join us for drinks and snacks! Casual attire. If you plan on joining, please let us know in your RSVP!
If you are in the wedding party, please see additional details here.
The Day Of
On our wedding day, a shuttle bus will be provided from Hudson to the wedding venue and back. So as long as you're there for pick-up, it should be a seamless night from there! The shuttle going home will leave on the later side so we suggest spending the night in Hudson. There will be an after-party as well at Half Moon Bar!

While we are very excited to see everyone, we do understand that this is a destination wedding and for a number of reasons it may be difficult to attend.
We greatly appreciate the family and friends who are able to make the trip, but for those whom cannot attend, please know that we completely understand and hope to see you in the near future!

Have Other Questions?
Instead of a traditional registry, we have decided to accept gifts towards our honeymoon or a fund for starting out our lives together.
For our honeymoon, we have itemized a wishlist (coming soon) of places to stay and things do you in case you want to provide something special.
Gifts of any size are greatly appreciated!
