Harvest on Hudson-Yumiko and Sam-Hastings-on-Hudson, New york

Share

A beautiful, sunny, crisp fall day played host for the wedding of Yumkio and Sam at Harvest on Hudson Restaurant in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York. The ceremony was held on the outside covered patio. Cocktails were held in the bar and entrance area and the reception was held in the main room.

The Harvest on Hudson property is truly a gem. At first look at the exterior one can imagine being transported to a villa somewhere in Tuscany. The exterior of the building has cream colored stucco with terra cotta roofing tiles. Extensive gardens with patio areas contain a myriad of vegetables and herbs many of which are used in the kitchen. These include squash, green beans, tomatoes, peppers, basil, oregano and many more. At the time on Yumiko and Sam’s wedding frosts had already descended leaving the garden only with the promise of next year’s crops.

Harvest’s main room again evokes images of Tuscany with textured ochre colored walls, rustic wood flooring and tall beamed ceilings. The room, which also houses the bar, contains the perfect balance of space for formal dining as well as casual areas with seating to allow guests to gather in intimate groups.

Yumiko and Sam choose flowers natural, rustic flowers in tones of cream, orange, burgundy, brown and green to complement the fall season as well as the decor of the restaurant. The bridal bouquet incorporated deep orange calla lilies and roses, gold mokara orchids and buttercream colored matthiola (aka stock). The boutonnieres were designed using calla lilies or hypericum berries with seeded eucalyptus and rosemary. Centerpieces were created in deep brown wooden boxes using a combination of rustic elements such as artichokes, rosemary, kale, babules, lucadendron, protea, lotus pods and hypericum berries.

The ceremony was held on the covered patio. The chuppah with a fringed cloth is a family heirloom built by Sam’s grandfather decades ago.

The “place cards” were beer bottles. The table was accented with a tall arrangement which incorporated the same elements as the centerpieces but with the addtion of curly willow branches.
