Marc & Lisa; May 17: Castle on the Hudson

Marc & Lisa had a beautiful day on May 17 for the wedding at the amazing Castle on the Hudson in Tarrytown, New York.

The couple got ready in different rooms before their first meeting at the bottom of a grand staircase in the lobby. Lisa came down the stairs as Marc waited at the bottom turning to see his bride-to-be as she approached. After an embrace and a few private words, Lisa pinned Marc's corsage and the couple joined the wedding party out back for photos with Gulnara from Gulnara Studio.

Everyone then headed to the library for the Ketubah signing before the beautiful interfaith ceremony in which the cantor and priest alternated throughout. The ceremony ended with Marc breaking the glass and the couple exiting to loud cheers.

Cocktail hour was held downstairs while the ceremony room was transformed for dinner and toasts. The couple and wedding party were introduced into the dining room after cocktails and toasts from many followed. The couple snuck outside for a few moments during dinner for more photos and video in front of the fountain before returning for more toasts.

Everyone then headed downstairs for the party with highlights captured by Tim Alan Smith that included first dance, parent dances, a special song from Marc to Lisa, lots of dancing and the horah. All and all, it was a day they would not soon forget.
