Real Weddings | Pasadena, CA

Erin and Jared’s wedding day was filled with meaning and details that were significant to them, and they wanted to share the importance of those elements with their friends and families. As Erin is Jewish and Jared’s background is Chinese and English, they had a Jewish wedding where blending and honoring cultures and family were at the core. To help everyone feel comfortable and excited about the ceremony, and because Jewish and Chinese customs were new to many guests, each significant part of the ceremony — Ketubah, Chinese Tea Ceremony, Chuppah, Kiddush, and breaking the glass — were explained in the program as well as by the officiant. Perfect for their vision of blending cultures, the couple stood under the chuppah made with bamboo supports on a bridge in the middle of an Asian garden. They knew the welcoming of cultures worked when Erin’s new Chinese cousin said she now wants a Jewish wedding!

The ceremony was uniquely personalized and incorporated private thoughts Erin and Jared had individually sent to the officiant describing what about the other person each loved most. For their vows, Erin and Jared simultaneously read the words that they had chosen for their ketubah. Then it was off to cocktails and a fantastic party that had everyone on the dance floor late into the night. It was a unique, elegant, and fun event that Erin and Jared described as “perfectly ours.”

Mazel tov, Erin and Jared!

This has been simply particularly open-handed of you in giving unreservedly just what most people could have advertised as an e-book to earn some bucks for themselves, notably considering the fact that you might well have done it in case you considered necessary. These solutions also served to become a easy way to fully grasp most people have a similar eagerness just like my own to know significantly more with reference to this condition. Certainly there are several more fun sessions in the future for people who discover your blog post.
