The festival of lights took on a whole new meaning when Rachel and Jimmy’s wedding landed on the fourth night of Chanukah. Their ceremony was in the round at the foot of the grand staircase. We love ceremonies held in the round because it feels like the bride and groom are receiving a big hug from all of the guests!
When guests arrived they were greeted by champagne and latkes and after delighting in these festive treats, a shofar blew to signal guests to their ceremony seats. The bride’s reveal was dramatic and romantic. First, Rachel’s parents appeared as the processed down the aisle and then a light came on at the top of the stairs, spotlighting the bride as she took the steps down toward her parents to the song “I Am That I Am” from The Ten Commandments.
The wedding reception continued in a bold and celebratory fashion with a night of dancing, candelight, and fabulous decor.
Mazel tov, Rachel and Jimmy!
