Jewish Summer Camp Wedding | Alina + Brian

Alina and Brian are an amazing couple. Throughout their entire wedding process, from our first meeting to the end of the night at their wedding when they squashed me up in a HUGE hug, I felt truly honored to be photographing their wedding.

Their incredible Jewish community of friends was large and loving, and there were multiple horas and awesome dancing all night long! There was also a LOT of singing: at the Tish, bedeken, at the chuppah, and all throughout the reception. It was so joyful.

Talking about the weather is kind of boring normally, but the weather this day was SO WEIRD that I have to point it out. We had bright, beautiful sun, a huge rain storm that rolled in, and temperatures that fluctuated dozens of degrees in a matter of a couple of hours. It was quite the weather to contend with, but these two made the best of it and I couldn’t be happier for them.

Their loose theme was “elegant dinosaur”, and the funniest way they nodded to this was with brontosaurs figures dressed up as bride and groom that went on their ice cream wedding cake as cake toppers. I took them outside afterwards to pose them in the grass for some "glamour shots”.
