When 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.
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.
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.
Another of the bride’s favorite moments was the signing of their wedding ketubah. Their handmade ketubah was from Chosen Treasures in Atlanta , Georgia which featured a lovely blue and purple border.
Beautiful music is a great way to set the mood. A harpist serenades guests as they enter.
The romantic flowers and centerpieces reflect the garden theme.
The guest book table showcases the couple’s love of fun and travel.
The couple broke from tradition and opted for a cupcake tower instead of a tiered wedding cake.
For the reception, live entertainment was on hand to keep everyone on the dance floor.
Mazel Tov to the happy couple! Thank you for sharing your special day with us.
