What’s Hot for 2016- Top Wedding Trends

I came across an article that I thought would interest our 2016 wedding couples. I pulled a few trends from WeddingWire's Kim Forrest's list of what's hot for this years wedding season. Read below! Top Wedding Trends for 2016: Flowers and Greenery Hanging from Ceilings and Covering Walls Floral creations aren’t just for reception tables anymore! We’re seeing floral arrangements in unique places—including hanging from venue ceilings and covering walls to create a memorable photo backdrop (remember the famous photo from Kim and Kanye’s wedding?). High Ballerina Buns While many brides are still loving the loose, romantic look, we’re also seeing more and more brides wearing their hair in more structured ballerina-inspired updos. We love how this style keeps the hair out of the face all night long! Expanding Social Media Presence 2015 was [...]

Here’s to Another Year of Greatness!

I'd like to share a little story with you all. Now I know 99% of our blogs are wedding focused, but today I'd like to focus on welcoming 2015. Yesterday, in the midst of the blistery weather and usual Saturday grocery store and chaos, I stood on line waiting to pay for some items I picked up for my Grandfather. A very nice woman grabbed my attention and asked if I had a coupon for the cases of water I was purchasing. I politely replied yes and graciously thanked her for her offer. From that simple little coupon offer, started a conversation about the need for all people to be kind and appreciate one another - that there is more to kindness than just saying "have a nice day," but going out [...]

Finding Your Perfect Dress

You have the ring on your finger and the date and venue picked out. Congratulations!  Now onto the next order of business- the dress. It can be a bit over whelming (which has probably started to become a familiar feeling) because of all the different looks and styles offered. One way to help immediately narrow things down is by figuring out what will flatter you best. I have laid out some wedding dress styles to help give you a basic idea of which style dress goes best with particular body types. Ballgown The dress that gives that "fairy tale" feel, this dress is great for large, traditional weddings. It is ideal for a lot of body types, especially  pear shapes because it accentuates the waist and flows out hiding the lower body [...]

5 Things You Won’t Want To Forget At Your Summer Wedding

As crazy as this sounds, this winter weather today has me thinking about the summer in the Hudson Valley. So I've put together 5 items/things that you will want to make sure you have at your West Hills wedding. Your sunscreen! You worked so hard all season long on NOT having tan lines, so stick to it on your wedding day. Especially if you have really fair skin. So lather up with a non-greasy sunscreen and stay in the shade as much as possible when taking your photos. Trust me, your pictures (and skin) will thank you. Fans at the ceremony. Place a small, handheld fan on each guest’s chair so they can stay cool during the ceremony. Better yet, have them double as a ceremony program! A backup boutonniere for the [...]

Wedding Dress + Bathroom = HELP!?

"How the heck am I supposed to use the bathroom while wearing a 30lb. wedding dress?" We know you think about it, every bride does...Well worry no more! Correct me if I'm wrong, but what happens in the restroom should be private, not shared with half the wedding party. Maybe a few extra hands doesn't bother you, but for those of you who would like to keep things to yourself, we have just the thing to take your worries away. Check it out!

Bet you’ve never seen an grand entrance like this!

One of the most exciting things about your wedding reception is making that grand entrance as a newly married couple. All eyes on you, a roaring crowd, growing anticipation, and some fancy dance moves to get the party started! But why just settle for "usual"? Correct us if we're wrong, but at West Hills Country Club, we think it's pretty safe to say that making an epic entrance is just as important as some of those other wedding to-do's. So leave those boring shimmy's and fist pumps at the door, and do something unique and down right awesome! Check out this amazing entrance done by Cheryl and Jason Lee on October 3, 2014!...Pay special attention around 3:00 ;) Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGBRCdoT-Es How will you make your Hudson Valley entrance unique?

Where has the time gone?

Where has the time gone?! It seems like just yesterday we were beginning the 2014 wedding season, yet here we are with only 13 weddings left for the year. It won’t be long before the Grand Outdoor Ballroom goes into hibernation for the winter, and we once again long for the Spring. In honor of Throwback Thursday, we wanted to reflect on some of the special moments our couples have shared at West Hills Country Club. Thank you Christine Studios, Chris Carter Photography, Kevin Ferguson, and Joanne Giannetti for capturing these beautiful photos. Enjoy!
