Rockland County NY Wedding – Heather and Na’im

Rosanne and I had the privilege of photographing the wedding of Heather Arndt and Na’im Benton a couple of weeks ago. The joy in their faces was uncontainable as the anticipation grew throughout the day. We had the pleasure of photographing Heather and Na’im’s engagement session in Pear River last fall and were excited to celebrate with them, the ending of one chapter and the beginning of the next, as we captured the story of their wedding day.

For Heather, the day began at Prestige Beauty Supply & Salon in Nanuet, New York.  Heather’s mom accompanied her to the salon where a trusted friend from church began Heather’s transformation.   Na’im, not to be outdone by his bride, headed over to Pete’s Barber shop in Pearl River, NY with a couple of his guys for a quick trim.  Shooting in a barbershop was a first for me and we had a blast. The barbershop played along prodding Na’im and questioning if he always traveled with a full entourage everywhere he went. Na’im just smiled, and said, “Its my wedding day!”

There is much one could write about their day, but the themes that stood out to us more than anything were love and joy. The expression of love, manifesting through joy, between Heather and Na’im and the outpouring of love towards Heather and Na’im by family and friends. Both expressions, a testimony to the One who brought Heather and Na’im together, and to the One who will keep them together as they travel together this adventure called life.

To the Ardnt and Benton families, thank you for bringing us into your family and making us feel so welcome and loved.

Mr. and Mrs. Na’im Benton, Congratulations on your wedding, the whole day was beautiful, and we were privileged to share it with you. Once again you reminded us why we love photographing weddings. We love you guys and pray all the best for you two in the years to come!
