It was a gorgeous day, the families showered them with love, and we all had a blast. Check out the images of Tamar and Noah's beautiful farm wedding at the Dudley Farm in Guilford Ct. Tamar and Noah were surrounded by everything that is important to them and it was done with perfection. When I first met Tamar and Noah and they told me about their plans, they were most excited about the combination of the venue and food. Dudley Farm is a very community-minded farm, and chef Jonathan Rapp of Dinners at the Farm serves an amazing organic menu constructed from local and seasonal food. I arrived at the farm early and enjoyed watching Jonathan's team prep the food and visited the community garden that had held up well despite the recent hurricane. Tamar and Noah began the day with a "first look" portrait session with just the two of them. When the guests arrived, the women all greeted Tamar in a beautiful Bedeken, and the men joined for the Tisch. These were followed by a beautiful ceremony that included a special reading of a relative's poem. When everyone gathered under the tent for dinner, the families couldn't help but spontaneously burst into song and dance mixed in with the heartfelt toasts. To wrap the evening we headed to the barn for dancing.
For me this wedding was a long time coming, which probably sounds funny, but is true because event planner Josh Chalmers and I have waited years to work at a wedding together. A few years ago a fellow photographer asked me if I would document a wedding with him and Josh was the planner of that wedding. Josh and I hit it off at that wedding and since then Josh has invited me to contribute to my photography to a few charity events he has done work for such as The Fairy Tale Ball and GreenLight Fund, but the timing was never right for us to collaborate on a wedding together. Working with Josh was such a a treat! He really connects with the couples' personalities and style and creates a very personal event.
Congratulations Tamar and Noah!!! Your wedding day was gorgeous and it was such a pleasure to be there for you!! ~ Matt
