What did you base your choice of location on?
LYNDA: Adam and I often feel like we live and work within many realms. As a result, the arts have become our stable outlet. We spend our days creating artificial beauty in the imitation of nature’s perfection. We have found that beauty is often found in the process, transforming something from its original state to its finished product. It’s our way of doing what nature does all on its own, and ultimately how we evolved towards one another. It was hard not to think of our wedding as another gig. We had to dig deep to what really mattered. Sometimes you need to silence the noise so that you can respect its origin. It became very clear that we needed a venue that would collaborate with our principles. Blue Hill at Stone Barns focuses on the process of food by respecting the relationships that contribute to its transformation. The result is flavor that satisfies not just the senses but the spirit. It was perfect. Beauty, nature, and art.
ADAM: FOOD. Even before getting engaged, we knew that stereotypical, mass produced wedding food was off the table. We wanted to give our guests the gift that is the Blue Hill experience, unmistakably farm fresh, delicious food presented by the impeccably well-choreographed staff, in the enchanting environment that is Blue Hill at Stone Barns.
