Aaron and Courtney New York Wedding

phoenix-arizona-wedding-photography-new-york-garrison-east-coast-wedding-hudson-river026

It’s hard to find words that can accurately describe Courtney and Aaron’s wedding day at a spectacular home along the Hudson River.  The best word that comes to mind about this Upstate New York wedding – perfect.  Perfect – everything, and a little rain only gave the couple a little more good luck.

Thanks to Wedding Chicks for featuring this wedding (coming soon).

Let’s start off with a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown in the library.

Cara and Chad Grayhawk Wedding

grayhawk-golf-club-wedding-arizona-photographer-chad-cara-dankberg-018

My tongue slipped and I called them “Chara” while we were shooting portraits, a blend, like Brangelina or Kimye.  A power couple name works well since Chad and Cara are such a duo, so perfectly matched in every way.  They love the same things, laugh at the same things, and their personalities are so incredibly laid back and kind.

Being able to capture this wedding was very meaningful to me, having known Chad since my sophomore year of college.  It’s an honor to not only witness a long time friend find his other half, but to spend 8 hours during one of the most important days of their life capturing it.

This wedding was full of personality and Jewish traditions (Ketubah signing, breaking of the glass and Hora dance) as you’ll see – from the adventurously fun couple, to their very outgoing entertaining friends, the entire day was full of laughter and a great time.  The best was a surprise impromptu song from the groom and his buddies, Top Gun anyone?  I don’t think I’ve laughed so much behind the lens during a wedding.

Big thanks to Ali and Jessica of Some Like It Classic for making the day go so smoothly, Justin of SKM Entertainment for an entertaining reception, and as always, a pleasure working with Serendipity Cinemas.

Chara, love you guys, congratulations!

“You’ve lost that lovin’ feelin'” was probably one of the funniest things to see all the guys get into it. I was just told by the groom he sent a text out to his friends that morning for them to participate.  Love those surprises!
