Honestly, speeches are often my favorite part of weddings. We leave the wedding feeling like we know our bride and groom just a little bit more, having been given an insight into their lives and the people that they are. And sometimes, the words and thoughts shared by those close to our brides and grooms’ hearts are a confirmation, a verbal affirmation of what we already know. One of the most poignant things said that night were that Ruby and Harvey are both people who are very comfortable in their own skin – why they are both so genuine, open and compassionate – and it rang true in every aspect of the day. They were both so anxious to see each other for their first look that when we captured them overjoyed to see each other for the first time on their wedding day, we might as well have not been there. Their traditional Jewish wedding ceremony was made more personal with their own touches and vows and afterward, they had one heck of a party which was made all the more lively with the Paul Chacra’s 1945 keeping the guests on the dancefloor most of the evening. And did their guests get their dance on – I’m talking shirts untucked, shoes thrown off and dinner-napkins-as-accessories kind of energy. And when the guests weren’t dancing, they were getting some truly awesome poses captured in our inaugural photobooth with props and costumes supplied by Ruby and her mom! What a fantastic night – check out a small sampling of our favorite images below!
