Tradition Meets Elegance in NJ Jewish Wedding

Matthew and Laurie first realized they were perfect for each other on a group trip to Israel. The couple quickly found out that they shared a passion for Israel, and there couldn’t have been a better way to start a relationship than by being there together. A year and a half later, they were engaged and making plans for this stunning traditional Jewish wedding at Temple Emanu-El of Closter, NJ. Photography by Brett Matthews Photography.

Jewish Wedding at New Jersey Synagogue, TempleEven though Laurie is a Long Island girl, she fell in love with the beauty and ambiance of New Jersey’s Temple Emanu-El of Closter. The bride and groom were blown away by the sanctuary’s breathtaking stained glass dome, and its perfect blend of tradition and elegance. According to Laurie, “it was the first place we looked at and didn’t look much further after that.” Northern Valley Affairs, the temple’s exclusive caterer, matched the setting with exquisite kosher cuisine.

Lavender & Lace Jewish Multi-Faith Wedding

Robin and Shujah met and fell in love in medical school, but their different faiths kept them from staying together. After some time apart, the two realized they couldn’t be without one another. To embrace Robin’s Jewish heritage and Shujah’s Muslim descent, the couple celebrated their nuptials with a traditional Muslim ceremony as well as a Jewish ceremony. We were lucky enough to get a glimpse of their wedding thanks to The Collection.

15 Ideas for a Fabulous Floral Chuppah – Wedding Canopy

The chuppah, a Jewish wedding canopy with four open sides and four poles, is a central part of a Jewish wedding. It represents the home you will make with your partner, and it is where you will say your vows and become a family. The chuppah can be handheld, with four people of your choosing holding each pole, or it can be freestanding.

To decorate your chuppah, be inspired by the rest of your wedding. You can create a seamless and coherent look by using the same colors as the rest of the décor and incorporating flowers that are in your bouquet, the centerpieces and the other decorations. The chuppah can also provide an opportunity to incorporate something sentimental into your wedding, like your grandfather’s tallit (Jewish prayer shawl) or a flower that is meaningful to you.

Here are 15 ideas for a floral chuppah that represents your style and wedding vision.
