Rachel and Jake’s wedding at B’nai Torah Congregation was reminiscent of something similar to the Garden of Eden. The organic motif included a variety of foliage, eucalyptus, hydrangeas, roses, matthiola, lisianthus, and dendrobium orchids. White, cream, blush, and burgundy tones with gold accents could not be more perfect for this couple’s special day. The bride carried a lush nosegay with the chosen florals while the groom donned a single white rose.
Just prior to the wedding ceremony, a bedeken took place in the synagogue’s Weiner Room. The Jewish veiling ceremony bring the bride and groom together during the symbolic festivity with song, dance, laughter, and of course, love. The tradition stems from the Bible which explains that Jacob was tricked into marrying the sister of his beloved because she was veiled. The area was draped and designed with plenty of flowers and foliage as a grand focal point for the bride and her entourage to be center stage during this cultural event.
The ceremony area looked magical when the sun set. LED pillar candles in glass vessels illuminated the aisle, bistro lighting decorated the perimeter, and LED lighting and tiny white lights gave the chuppah an ideal glow. A coordinating archway sat at the front of the aisle which was also glimmering for the bridal party to make their entrance. The 4-post branched canopy had swags of greenery and amaranthus cascading for an authentic garden-feel.
After the exchanging of vows, guests enjoyed a grand reception in the ballroom. The space was ambient with a plenitude of candlelight, unique low and high arrangements, and more foliage for a romantic and enchanting celebration that even Adam and Eve would savor.
