Ilana & Danny were married at the Inn at Longshore in Westport, CT in October.
One of the staples of my venue lineups every year is the waterfront club in Connecticut. The Inn at Longshore sits right on the water with New York City in the distance and sweeping views of the sound with a beach right out front. For a mid October wedding, the hope is that you could still have an outdoor ceremony but on this particular day the wind was howling and it was downright frigid! That didn’t stop Ilana from shedding the jacket and going with it which I so appreciated. You’ll see, Ilana & Danny are a fun couple that go with the flow and know how to have a great time. The photos literally take themselves! Also, I’d already photographed Ilana’s sister Dara’s wedding earlier the same year so there were so many familiar faces right off the bat.
After coming back inside to thaw, it was time to prepare for their Jewish wedding ceremony beginning with the signing of the ketubah. A beautiful ritual where the bride & groom are surrounded by their parents and sign a sacred document, they are in fact officially married before what we all think of as the ceremony is underway.
With guests arriving, the sun really began to stream in casting a warm glow over the ceremony. Despite being inside, it was still a beautiful and fortunately warm moment. After everyone cleared out, the staff of The Inn were busy flipping the space for the reception as Flowers by Danielle accented the space with gorgeous florals.
