Ottawa Wedding Photographers | Kandid Weddings
Recently we attended Rebecca and Joel’s wedding in Orleans. When we first met this lovely couple a few months ago to discuss their wedding photography, we got excited about their big day for two reasons. First, we love ethnic weddings with all their rich traditions and variety. Second, with their never-fading smiles and great love for each other, we knew this would be an emotion-filled wedding to shoot (and it was indeed).
We started our coverage with the bride and groom getting ready and proceeded with the Jewish ceremony, formals, and the reception.
As usual, here are a few of our favorites from this fun day…
When we arrived at Joel’s home to capture him and his groomsmen getting ready, this plaque over his mantle caught my eye. It read “a heart in love is always young”. And Rebecca and Joel are really the living proof. Their positive attitude and enthusiasm was nothing short of exceptional.
As in any traditional Jewish wedding ceremony, the Ketubah (traditional Jewish marriage certificate) was read out loud and signed by two witnesses. Up to this point the groom had not seen his bride in the wedding dress.
We then proceeded to the second part of the ceremony which was held under the Chuppah (traditional Jewish ceremony canopy), held by family youth.
