All signed and ready to be delivered to Melissa and I! Mike, Ryan, his parents and my parents (I love the height difference! My family is very short.)
Melissa and I listening to what we will be signing
I love this picture of us
Happily signing to make the document official!
How the boys celebrated before the ceremony!
And this is how the girls celebrate before the ceremony! (I made the wine glasses!)
Wine glasses and glass for Mike to step on
Such a pretty shot of the glasses
I had the deck lined with tulle
Floating candles were lining the aisle
Rabbi starting the processional
Mike being escorted by his parents
One of my favorite pictures! My parents and I watching the ceremony before it was our turn to walk down the aisle..
Walking down the aisle with my parents, filled with so much emotion
Greeted by a kiss on my wrist by my groom!
Wide shot of the ceremony
I was very happy with the aisle runner!
I love my facial expression in this picture
Mike stepping on the glass! One of his favorite moments of the ceremony for sure!
Our first kiss as husband and wife! 7 years in the making!
We did it! Happiest moment of my entire life!
Ready to spend the rest of our lives together <3
Getting ready to take pictures after the ceremony..
The ceremony went absolutely beautiful! The Rabbi did a phenomenal job. She made sure to explain everything that she was saying and what we were doing so everyone would understand. I made sure in the program to explain everything so our guests would be aware of what was happening when and why. I think it really helped especially for those people who may have never attended a Jewish wedding before. We couldn’t have asked for a better ceremony. She did a really great job and helped to ease our nerves.
I loved standing there just gazing so deeply into Mike’s eyes. We were so connected in those moments unlike anything I have ever felt before. Words can not express how you feel when standing there with the one you love. It was such a surreal and out-of-body experience. I loved every second of it.
After the ceremony, we did a ton of pictures with our families and the bridal party. That is going to be the next part of our wedding that I am going to recap. I am also at some point going to recap all of the little details that you have been noticing. I am going to explain and show signage, various aspects of things I was wearing, etc. I am going to explain it all. So definitely stay tuned!
Have a great Friday!
