It was important to me, as the producer of Noshing At Tiffany’s, to make sure that in addition to capturing the brilliant details created by the dream team of vendors, that we also create a mock wedding that would not only showcase the beautiful and artistic elements, but also highlight major Jewish traditions that you’d likely see or experience at your Jewish or Jew-ish wedding.
So, let’s take a walk down the aisle together as we watch our models (who are real-life husband and wife!) Runya and Jason get married with their (new) friends, Yana and Jonathan serving as their best man and maid of honor!
It all starts with some portraits of this good looking crew!
After portraits, it’s time to sign the ketubah! The ketubah is called Jerusalem Love Tree and is by Anna Abramzon. We love how it’s a modern and whimsical piece of art, but still matches the Tiffany’s blue vintage theme. The couple signed the ketubah and their wedding party served as their witnesses. In real life, remember, your witnesses should be Jewish, non-blood relatives, and don’t forget to use an archival pen, not a Sharpie or Paper Mate.
Once the ketubah ceremony is finished, it’s time to head over to the chuppah ceremony! Happy Flowers set up and decorated the chuppah in addition to the creative flower duties. Even on a blustery day, the chuppah held up and stood strong! The bride and groom stood under the chuppah together, shared some wine in the kiddush cup, got wrapped in the groom’s tallit, and of course, the big finish was stepping on the glass!
There is so much more that takes place in a real chuppah ceremony, but here we are focusing on some of the photogenic snippets. “Mazel tov” to the “married” (again to each other) couple!
After the ceremony, it’s time to celebrate! How about some merriment around a stylishly decorated table, brilliantly designed by Cynthia Alexander of An Enlightened Event? We’ve already gushed over the details of the table, but now it’s time to talk about what happens at the table.
Toasts to the bride and groom! Snuggling as “newlyweds!” And Ooooo-ing and Ahhhh-ing over the decor! Yes, this is definitely a brunch party like no other.
There’s still nothing like a real Jewish wedding and there are plenty more REAL ones in store as The Wedding Yentas receives submissions daily. If you’d like to send your waiting in for review, please email alison @ theweddingyentas dot com for details. I’ll need your wedding photos zipped or sent through Dropbox, a full vendor list with links, and a blurb about the day. Photographers and other wedding pros may also submit via Two Bright Lights.
Producing Noshing At Tiffany’s was a total blast and I’m still pinching myself that this team came together and made this much beauty. Are you inspired to design your own vintage wedding?
