An Unforgettable Location

The Couple & Event

The event itself was simply beautiful.  The Cantor Inbal Sharett played the music that began the events, leading to incredible reactions as the bride appeared.  The bride’s two children walked her down the isle.  The groom was visibly stunned at her beauty, as the formal traditions slipped later into dancing the night away.  Singing the song, Master of the House’ from Les Miserables, the cantor led 50-65 people in transforming the event into a true celebration of energy, dance, and life.  Thanks to the event space, musician, and the couple, the night was incredible.  At the heart of all of it was the bride, dancing the night away with passion.

“I think that emotional content is an image’s most important element, regardless of the photographic technique. Much of the work I see these days lacks the emotional impact to draw a reaction from viewers, or remain in their hearts.”
