Emily and Seth’s story is sweet and inspiring! The Ph.D. students met studying biology at MIT and lab work brought them together as friends and soon as, well, more than friends!
When it was time to start planning a wedding, they wanted to include unique and personal touches. Seth is Jewish and Emily is not, so we they chose a place that was an expression of them and also ideal for an interfaith wedding. The Rockport Art Association would fit all of their guests and could serve as both the ceremony and reception venue. To add to the art theme, crafty Emily made a DIY invitation suite based off a love bird design from an invitation template. To tie in the love birds, she ordered custom-made matching love bird stamps from Etsy and embossed them on the wedding favors. Their friends were delighted to find that the favor was a card game that Seth and Emily often play!
Their perfect day began with portraits around Rockport. Seeing a bride and groom during Memorial Day weekend caused quite a sensation! They literally stopped traffic and got many car honks and cries of congratulations! Rabbi Eiduson did an incredible job of getting to know Emily and Seth, incorporating many tear-inducing personal moments into the ceremony. Their bridal party was small, just Seth and Emily’s sisters, so they included friends in the ceremony by having them read one of the Seven Blessings that Seth and Emily had personalized. They took the final sips from Seth’s mom’s kiddush cup, Seth broke the glass, and then they were married!
Mazel tov, Emily and Seth!
