Rachel + Jacob started their day at the Inn at Middletown. The guys, who got ready quickly, (as most dudes do), took a myriad of silly pictures. I was cracking up as I was editing and seeing all the poses they came up with.
After Rachel finished getting ready they met for a sweet first look. I just loved shooting Rachel + Jacob because their connection and affection for each other in front of the camera was so easy to photograph. Afterwards, the whole wedding party boarded a school bus they had rented and made their way to The Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station for portraits before the ceremony.
It was a super chilly day and rain was in the forecast, but thankfully we were able to knock out almost all of the portraits before the Ketubah ceremony (I love Jewish weddings with all their rich traditions). Then, as guests were seated outside and the bridal party starting to line up for the ceremony it started to rain. Everyone and everything was moved indoors.
Finally, the celebrating began and was filled with a song that all of the guests sang collectively during the matron of honor’s toast, a flash mob dance courtesy of the bridal party, and the horah. It was beautiful and fun filled day and I was honored to be a part of it.
And, thanks to Renee, my steady second shooter and good friend. Always lucky to have her!
