We’re guessing some of you may recognize the adorable bride + groom from today’s gorgeous Catskill mountain wedding, captured oh-so-beautifully by Jesse of Golden Hour Studios. John Mulaney is an SNL writer, stand-up comedian and the star of Mulaney – his own show that is set to premiere on FOX on October 5th! Anna is a makeup artist + the author of the amazing book, The Daily Face. These cuties tied the knot in a celebration that perfectly infused elegant art deco details into the rustic, woodland setting and included some of the most gorge flowers we’ve seen thanks to the super talented Ariel Dearie. Anna shares more about why they chose the beautiful Onteora Mountain House as their venue with us below:
First and foremost, John and I wanted to get married in nature. Though we’d lived in New York City for 10 years the wedding ceremony just seemed like something that should take place within the peaceful surroundings of trees and mountains instead of concrete and skyscrapers. When John and I got out of the car and saw the sprawling vistas and towering trees we knew immediately we’d found our wedding site. Plus, in the event of rain the ceremony would take place in the beautiful, wood pavilion with huge windows, so even indoors the incredible view would not be lost. We knew rain or shine it would be the perfect setting for the 1920’s inspired, woodland-deco bash we’d envisioned.
We’re having a hard time deciding which we love more: Anna’s insanely beautiful Jenny Packham dress or her stunning garden rose + fern bouquet! We’ll just go ahead and call it a tie.
Since Anna is Jewish and John grew up Catholic, they decided to have their friend, comedian Dan Levy officiant their wedding! Love that – and bet it was a great ceremony. :)
Ariel designed the cool garden terrarium centerpieces, which worked perfectly within the walls of the venue’s beautiful wood pavilion.
A few closing words from the bride, In the end, it was the most perfectly clear, not too hot, zero humidity day we east coasters only dream of in the summer. Everyone danced all night long thanks to our amazing DJ. John and I had the wedding of our dreams surrounded by all the people we love most. It was truly the best day of our lives.
John + Anna, big congrats + best wishes from GWS!
