Today I have a uber lovely classic wedding submitted by the talented Jason Groupp Photography.
Here is the story of the couple's big day: We spent our morning getting ready with our respective friends at different locations--Benny at the Hotel Z with his Best Man and Megan at Water's Edge with her bridesmaids. After Jason and Karen got some amazing shots of us seeing each other for the first time, we all headed over to 5 Pointz City to take some outdoor photos...in 40 degree weather! After our arctic-like adventure, we made our way back to the Water's Edge to take photos with our families and the bridal party. Next came the Ketubah signing, which was a quiet and intimate moment with only our closest friends, family and our beloved Rabbi, Jerome K. Davidson. Rabbi Davidson has officiated at many of our families special events. The actual wedding ceremony was definitely a surreal experience. We were both smiling like two crazy fools and holding onto each other's hands for dear life! We spoke the traditional Hebrew vows, as well as some vows of our own, which made the ceremony that more special and unique. After that, the wedding was in full swing. We had our fist dance to Frank Sinatra's "Fly Me To the Moon" and then went right into the Hora. One of our favorite photos taken at our wedding is a photo of Benny's face while he is on a chair being lifted during the Hora. Classic Benny face captured PERFECTLY by Jason! During the wedding, we were able to sneak away with Jason, Karen and John (our videographer), to take some photos on the dock which overlooks Manhattan and the 59th Street Bridge. The whole night passed by in a wonderful blur, spent mingling with family and dancing with our amazing friends.
