I’ve photographed several weddings at the Thayer Hotel at West Point – ceremony in the Cadet Chapel with a reception at the Officer’s Club, ceremonies off-campus with receptions in the lower dining room at the Thayer – but Tara and Jonathan’s day was the first time I’ve photographed a wedding ceremony that happened at the Thayer. It was outside, overlooking the Hudson River, and they couldn’t have gotten a more perfect day. I think it must have been the nicest weather all summer! Check it out…
I just loved the semi-circular ceremony setup, tall floral centerpieces on vintage candelabras, silver-grey sashes decorating the chairs, and how the room had fun lighting by the DJ in Tara’s purple.
Tara’s dress was one of the loveliest I’ve seen: a gorgeous champagne white with vintage-inspired lace overlay and a cool bustle. It perfectly described Tara’s aesthetic – classic and chic – and set the tone for the whole event.
Congratulations, you two!
