New York Estate Wedding

We are so thankful to have filmed Michael and Alison’s New York Estate Wedding video in June! Firstly, they had a lovely wedding at the St Episcopal Church in neighboring Pound Ridge. The reception was a a private estate of the bride’s family. It was an old house used by the British in the Revolutionary War as a base. Additionally, it was the only house that was let standing in the entire city.

The town of Bedford was founded on December 23, 1680, when 22 Puritans from Stamford, Connecticut, purchased a tract of land three miles square known as the “Hopp Ground” from Chief Katonah and several other Native Americans for coats, blankets, wampum and cloth.

Firstly, the Town of Bedford’s Hamlet of Katonah has a two significant National Historic Landmarks, which are “Stepping Stones – Historic Home of Bill & Lois Wilson”. This is the home of the Alcoholics Anonymous Cofounder “Bill W.” who died in 1971 and home of the Al-Anon Cofounder “Lois W., who died in 1988. Also, it is home to “John Jay Homestead,” home of one of the United States of America Founding Father and first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court.

Some minor landmarks in Beford are centered on the Bedford Green in the Town of Bedford’s Hamlet of “Bedford”, a small patch of green space at the center of the Bedford Village Historic District (along Route 22), including the former court house, the oldest government building in Westchester County, and now a museum. There is a small graveyard dating back to the founding of the town. Also, there is an old one-room stone schoolhouse and a few colonial-era houses. Because of that, they are still lived in and kept painted white with black or green shutters.
