Lindsay and Craig met through a mutual friend while frequenting Buffalo nightlife. Craig did not formally propose, but rather, the couple came to the realization that they both wanted the same things in life, and that getting married was the first step to achieving them. They both agreed that they would only be doing the whole wedding experience once, so their goal was to celebrate and party, and that was definitely accomplished in a big way! Neither Lindsay or Craig describe themselves as being “formally religious,” and were raised differently, but they both have a great deal of respect for their Jewish family traditions and wanted to incorporate certain aspects of this into their ceremony.
They were married by a cantor under a chuppah, and started the celebration with the breaking of the glass. One of the ways they incorporated family traditions was by having the bride’s father recite a prayer during the ceremony that he used to say to the family. One of the most humorous and memorable parts of the ceremony was when the groom, (who loves a good joke and a good laugh), was playful while walking down the aisle and even pretended to run away! Luckily, his mom caught him by the ear and assisted him in walking down the aisle.
Mazel tov, Lindsay and Craig!
