Hillary & Brian  |  August 20th  |  Hunter, New York

From the photographer, Sarah Esther:
Hillary and Brian met while in grad school at Emory University in Atlanta. What started out as a completely scholastic friendship turned quickly into a lovely romance. Both of them have electrifying smiles, which come out in full force anytime they are around each other. The wedding took place at Twilight Park in Haines Falls, Hunter Mountain, NY. The event hall looks over the Catskills, and in August it is a gorgeous view of soaring mountains and yellow flowers. The two decided on a traditional Jewish Ceremony and invited friends and family from across the country to join them. The details of the day were gorgeous.
