Aaron and Urmi were such a pleasure to work with. They are both such sweethearts and so easy going, it is impossible not to get along with them. The couple held their wedding ceremony at St. Mary's Church in Kingston and then the reception was held nearby at La Mirage in Ulster, NY. An intimate group of about 80 guests joined the newlyweds to celebrate. Since the wedding took place during the day, I wasn't sure if people would take to the dance floor, but boy was I wrong! This wedding group didn't care what time of day it was, they were happy and in the mood for dancing.
The morning started with Urmi getting ready. She was full of giggles and had her bridesmaids and mother with her. I love that Urmi stayed true to herself and wore her glasses on her wedding day. She said that she wears them everyday and doesn't feel herself without them, she looked so stunning! A delicate tiara added the perfect touch to her ensemble.
Urmi had a very emotional first look with her father. It was such a touching moment for everyone who witnessed it.
Aaron is a man of many ties, so I've heard. His tie collection is impressive, and he enjoys very much wearing them. This was not one of those grooms who has to YouTube how to tie a tie, or even how to fold a pocket square. In fact, he is so versed when it comes to dressing well, that he was giving his groomsmen lessons on how to fold the pocket square. I was very impressed to say the least.
As the two families came together at the church you could feel the joy exuding from them. To me, church weddings have a certain amount of solemness to them. It is a joyous occasion, yet very serious at the same time. What I loved about Aaron and Urmi's ceremony was that the priest added just enough humor to the ceremony to keep things lighthearted.
Aaron and Urmi arrived to La Mirage in style. They were warmly welcomed in by all of their guests and took straight to the dance floor for their first dance as husband and wife.
The reception came to an end just before the sun went down. Urmi and Aaron said their goodbyes and made their way outside to the garden area of La Mirage where we took their portraits.
