Tara and Jonathan, Wedding at the Thayer Hotel

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!
