Julia & Ben are our kind of people- I had pretty much decided that months prior when we met up with them to talk about their wedding. Ben had ridden his bike because thats just how he does, even though it was raining! That’s when I decided we needed to be there for them on their wedding day. Sure it didn’t hurt that their wedding was held at Summerour Studio, or that the day was directed by the lovely Ashley Baber. Their wedding day was just so real- everywhere we looked there were moments we were excited to capture. These two have an incredible magnetism- they were always surrounded by smiling friends and family making every second alive with fun and emotion. We found ourselves so energized and inspired by Julia & Ben’s authenticity, that we could have done it all over again, so obviously we had to share their wedding with you:
I love the traditional Jewish marriage ceremony for some many reasons- one being how involved the parents are in every detail. Julia & Ben certainly have great relationships with their parents and the happiness and excitement coming from the Chuppah was so obvious to all in attendance.
After a quick bustling of her dress, Julia & Ben retreated to a private porch to enjoy one another, the perfect weather and a little picnic. This quiet time was such a beautiful part of the day and Julia & Ben were just so relaxed and comfortable as they lounged before they went down to cocktail hour to greet their guests. I love it.
After their first dance, Julia & Ben’s parents and siblings and best friends gave toasts. It was so fun to hear more about Julia & Ben’s relationship as well as see the love and confidence those around them have in their relationship- beautiful.
