Westin Diplomat Resort Wedding ~ Elizabeth + Michael

Elizabeth and Michael ~ Married

Westin Diplomat Resort Wedding

Elizabeth and Michael’s  Westin Diplomat Resort wedding was a non-stop expression of love, joy, and commitment! There were so many details, moments, and traditions to emotionally experience at this amazing wedding. My team and I were on fire as we photographed the day for the Bride and Groom, their beloved families, and close friends! I’m sure that you’ll feel it too as you watch the slideshow and view the photographs that follow.

This image is a page from the rabbi’s prayer book that speaks of the vows about to be taken. Look at the shape of the shadow the ring made; what an appropriate effect.

Mesmerized is the word that comes to mind when I look at Elizabeth’s eyes. She’s so confident and beautiful.

Miami Wedding Details I’m always looking for an “image within an image”. As they were sharing a moment my eye went to their hands and the tender way their fingers engaged each other beautifully.

What could be more Florida than ocean and palm trees!

Miami Wedding Photography Dad getting readyI am aware that with every relationship there is a history. As I captured Elizabeth adjusting Daddy’s tie, I wondered if she ever fixed his tie as a young girl when he stepped out for the day?

Groom's Tish Miami Jewish Wedding PhotographyThe groom’s tisch is a rousing, informal reception for the groom. The fathers sit on each side of the groom. As the rabbi presides, the male guests greet the groom sharing in his good fortune, singing and celebrating all along. The rabbi concludes the official betrothal and the marriage contract, the ketubah, is signed.

I am so aware of everyone that is at a wedding; if they are there, they are important. However, I took special note of Elizabeth’s grandfather, as blessed his granddaughter, while Mom looked on.
