Real Jewish Weddings | Virginia Beach, VA

Kellie and Zach met on a Birthright trip to Israel and after coming home and meeting again at a reunion, they knew they were more than friends. Zach went to visit Kellie one weekend in Chapel Hill where she was working toward her Ph.D. and just never left.

Zach and Kellie had lots of people coming to the wedding from all over the country, so they had a dinner for everyone the night before the wedding. This really helped people to get to know each other so that everyone was already comfortable, friendly, and ready to party on the wedding night! Since they met on a Birthright trip, Kellie and Zach wanted to be sure to honor their beginnings, so Jewish wedding traditions such as the signing and reading of the ketubah and becoming husband and wife under the chuppah were obvious customs to include. They love the idea that people have been doing these rituals for centuries, which makes them special and important traditions to keep alive. Kellie and Zach’s wedding had an elegant black and white theme with pops of red, and their cake was inspired by the handmade paper used in their invitations.

Zach and Kellie now live in Boston where Zach is attending grad school and Dr. Kellie obtained a post-doctorate position at Harvard.

Mazel tov, Kellie and Zach!

Wedding Aisle Decor Ideas

Before you’ll have your eye on the prize under that chuppah, your guests will have an eye on the aisle. The space on which you’ll walk to say “I do” will be the first hint of what’s in store for the evening. This is the place to set the mood, express your vision, and impress your guests. So show your style down the aisle!

Your friends and family arrive at your venue and whether it’s a synagogue, garden, country club, museum, or hotel patio, they will no doubt comment on the arrangements you’ve chosen for the chairs and aisle. The overall set up may be traditional with rows of chairs, interactive with an in-the-round arrangement, or, even, innovative with a spiral seating pattern. It can be fun to think about how you want your guests to be seated and view your ceremony under the chuppah. If it’s your personality to be different, here’s your chance!

Then think about what you’re actually going to walk on as you mosey down the aisle. Runner or no runner? If you’d like a runner, do you want it to be a simple, solid color or white? Or, would you rather choose a runner that has a pattern stitched in like a damask or a floral motif? Is your head hurting yet?

Flowers! Rarely do we see weddings that just don’t have flowers. Flowers are a must, right? But are they a must down your aisle? Up to you! If you do choose to have flowers on your aisle, perhaps you’ll be inspired by these images of petals lining the perimeter, scattered randomly, heavily carpeted, or in a design. Florists and event designers can execute so many different creations!

You might forgo petals and use other types of arrangements. Glass containers with flowers or even fruit add splashes of color down the aisle. These can be reused in your reception, too, so you’re saving money and a little bit of Mother Nature as well. Go green and save green? Win-win!

Shepherd’s hooks are also popular down the aisle. Pomanders can be hung from the hooks for floral accents that also have depth, adding a 3D quality. Shepherd’s hooks look great especially in garden settings because they’re soft and almost fairytale-like. If you want hanging flowers, but want to nix the hooks, just hang some floral pomanders from the frames of the chairs. Super delicate and dainty — and that’s just divine!

Lit lanterns hanging from the hooks could also look formal and romantic for a dusk or night time ceremony where flowers may not be as visible. Evening ceremonies might also feature giant votives clustered down the aisle for a very dramatic effect.

If you want to minimize the tsotchkes down the aisle and prefer a cleaner and simpler look, you can just do bunches of flowers attached to every few rows of chairs, threaded together by chiffon. This is a classic look that also allows for flower repurposing at the reception.

There are so many ways you can establish your wedding look at the ceremony! Don’t be afraid to try new things, but also remember to stay true to yourselves as a couple. Voice your ideas to your florist or coordinator, but trust their experience. Remember, they’ve most likely worked the same venue before and they know what’s possible and what looks great on the property.

Ceremony decor down the aisle is a perfect environment to utilize your color scheme. You can neutralize other areas of your wedding, but flowers, ribbons, fabrics, and hard materials like jars and aluminums are perfect for producing a finished color palette. As soon as they sit their tushies down in the chairs, your guests should be able to tell if your wedding is going to be vintage and rustic, timeless and formal, modern and chic. By implementing your ideas through your ceremony decor, your wedding will become a unique representation of you!

Inspiration Board: Pink and Orange

Bright! Elegant! Playful! The essence of Spring! Those were the keywords behind Yenta Alison’s Memorial Weekend wedding that tied in pink and orange details. The most colorful and natural way to capture the pink and orange motif was through all the variations of floral arrangements by Lei-Ann Salter of Happy Flowers Inc. in Agoura Hills, California. Pink and orange ranunculas, roses, dahlias, calla lilies and splashes of green via fuzzy little buds called kermits all contributed to a successful theme. These flower varieties were highlighted in the chuppah, bouquets, cake (which was deliciously baked by Skiff’s in Simi Valley, California) and centerpieces. The chuppah treatment also transformed into floral arrangements on our sweetheart table at the reception. This is a great way to get more bang for your buck and recycle your gorgeous ceremony flowers! Extra flower petals were sprinkled on the cake table and the legacy table where we featured wedding photos of our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents! The bright pink bridesmaid dresses by Jasmine B2 purchased at Bridal Elegance in Torrance, California allowed the color to splash through, while still providing a playfully elegant look thanks to the strapless detail on top and tea-length skirt. Even the table favors adopted the pink and orange theme. We provided guests with a yummy treat — caramel apples! — and wrapped them with an orange ribbon and a label printed in the wedding colors that read “And they lived apple-y ever after.” These seemed to be a big hit with the guests and also look great against neutral cream-colored linens. Chairs were also wrapped in cream covers, but a bright pink sash tied in a knot created pop-outs of pizazz throughout the room. Pink and orange are great main colors you can incorporate into your palette. You can always add cream, green, and turquoise hues to vary the tones.
