Highland’s Country Club Wedding

{Tara & Stefan}

Tara and Stefan were married on a gorgeous spring day in April at Highland’s Country Club, in Garrison, New York. The weather was perfect and the aura surrounding the day was lovely.

I always love when a wedding day includes an intimate moment that gives me insight to the couples and those closest to them. Tara and Stefan incorporated their beliefs and values into their wedding day so perfectly.

Each Jewish wedding custom and tradition that were apart of their day was meaningful and special to them, their Rabbi and loved ones. Tara and Stefan took part in signing their Ketubah in a private ceremony held in the tavern within the Highlands. Closest friends and family were invited into the room where the Rabbi Jonathan Blake spoke beautiful words about Tara and Stefan’s relationship. Rabbi Blake and Tara and Stefan were able to incorporate such beautiful details into the Ketubah and spoken words about their relationship that the whole room was in tears. Even my team and I choked up.

Afterwards, they joined their guests for a public ceremony where they continued on with the traditional Jewish ceremonial customs by standing under their chuppah with a tallis as canopy from Zaidie (Grandpa) Shayke and were wrapped in Zaidie Sam’s tallis during the ceremony. The Ketubah was on display for everyone to see and they participated in the seven blessings by circling each other under the chuppah symbolizing the emotional and eternal commitment to each other. They concluded with breaking the glass with everyone shouting “mazel tov.” The love throughout the ceremony was SO apparent to everyone.

Stefan’s creativity was showcased through the gorgeous artwork displayed throughout the entire day from the signage to the seating charts.

Thank you to Tara and Stefan for trusting me to capture these intimate moments of your special day. Congratulations!

Check out Tara & Stefan’s engagement!
