Garden Theme Jewish Wedding

Romantic Jewish WeddingWhen planning a Jewish wedding, one of the first aspects a bride will decide upon is her colors. This can certainly be helpful, but there are other ways to go about it. If you can decide on a mood or a setting that you want to capture, that can set the tone for all the other plans to come. Photography by The Collection.

Jewish Bride Groom

Such was the case for this couple who wed in Nashville, TN. The bride decided on a garden theme, and all the details were infused with romantic elements and personalized details. The chuppah was decorated  with the ancestral elements of a tallit (prayer shawl) from each of the couple’s grandparents, and covered with a handmade quilt with the couple’s initials, with vines and flowers woven throughout the structure.

Honoring Loved Ones

Honoring Loved Ones

From the bride: We met through a mutual friend.  After corresponding for a week or so, he asked me out to dinner. We shared so many stories that first night  and  it was evident that we would be going out again.  By November 20, 2011, we realized that an entire year had gone by! The love has continued to grow between us, and on December 28, 2011, he proposed.  While he has been teaching  me Japanese and about chiropractic, I have been teaching him to cook!  We both have a passion for travel and learning, and are looking forward to sharing our lives with each other, making many new discoveries in the process.
