Today marks the 3 thirty days anniversary of our epic wedding (wedded life was beautiful up to now, many thanks for asking!), therefore why don’t we commemorate it with one last wedding article: an entertaining yet academic piece utilizing the last pictures from our nuptials to illustrate the glorious traditions of a wedding that is jewish.
The Bride and Groom (us!) sign the Ketubah: a Jewish wedding contract before the wedding ceremony.
The Ketubah could be the sacred Jewish wedding agreement, and Colin and I also finalized it within an intimate room prior to the wedding ceremony that is actual.

What exactly is therefore wonderful of a Ketubah is with language fitting to your type of marriage that you can customize it. You can easily select extremely old-fashioned (borderline sexist) language, or get the reverse extreme and get a wildly hippie Ketubah which declares, “Our wedding paints sparkling streaks of love to the world!”
Our marriage party admiring the ornate Ketubah due to the fact Cantor informs the tale behind it.

we will respect each other’s individuality which help each other grow to the potential that is fullest. We shall comfort and help one another through life’s sorrows and joys. Together, we shall produce a house filled up with learning, laughter and compassion, a house wherein we are going to honor each other’s family that is cherished and values. Read More
