I’m so excited to share Anna and Eytan’s wedding with you. This wedding was steeped in tradition, involved all of their friends and family and was full of very personal and colorful details! Thank you to Anna and Eytan for allowing me to execute all of your wedding plans, it was an honor to witness your union and I wish you all the best! Special thanks to all of the wedding professionals who made this incredible event happen!
This ring only continued to fuel my obsession with yellow diamonds…
Anna’s gown fit her to perfection!
Off to see Anna…
Eytan was making friends while waiting for his bride…
I love the mix of color with the bridesmaid dresses, they all coordinated so well!
Front and Palmer makes for some fun photos with the bridal party!
Stealing a quiet moment…
The signing of the Ketubah. What I thought was really special is that Eytan’s father is a rabbi and presided over all of the day’s ceremonies.
Being escorted by his father and father in law to their Tisch!
And here comes the bride escorted by Eytan’s sisters!
During the Tisch it’s customary to give a short D’var Torah (or speech). During the speech, guests will interrupt the speech by breaking out in song to lighten the mood and help calm the nerves.
Eytan pulling on Anna’s veil during the Bedekin.
Loved this suspended chuppah.
I love this picture, I actually have the same exact Bridal Prayer book that I carried down the aisle when I got married. It’s very special to us as it belonged to my husband’s grandmother. Anna and I were surprised to find we had the same one…
What a special moment Eytan had with his mother as she helped him put on his kettel.
Friends and family sharing in the Sheva Brachot.
This was the craziest hora I’ve ever seen, so much fun!
Friends and family dressed up for the Schtick. This is a very fun tradition in which guests entertain the bride and groom with funny performances, dances, costumes and signs displaying inside jokes or embarrassing facts about the couple.
Grandmothers facilitated the blessing.
This is also one of my favorite traditions. The Mezinka or “crowning” is when the last child is married. The parents are seated and crowns are placed on their heads and friends and family dance around them and congratulate them. Really celebratory and beautiful moment.
