Jamie and Eli ~ They’re Your Moments!
Jamie and Eli | Married
A Jungle Island Miami Wedding
The moments I capture with my camera don’t belong to me. They belong to you. They’re your moments. It might be an image that sits next to your bed that you wake up to, a photo that greets you as the walk into your home, an image that reminds you of a loved one, or that photo that greets every time you go to your phone. What I do I do for you, I do for your legacy.
I take photographing a wedding to heart. Through my eyes, I capture the joy of generations, grandparents, parents, children and grandchildren, and the exuberance of the wedding experience that forms the legacy of every couple and their families.
So it’s with much excitement that I share Jamie and Eli’s Orthodox Jewish Jungle Island Miami wedding!
There is a tradition for the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom to stand together and break a plate. The reason is to show the seriousness of the commitment ―
After the Tish, both fathers escort Eli to the Badeken, where you can see below as Jamie with both Mothers, Grandmothers and Sisters are thrilled and excited in the moment!
An endearing moment as Jamie’s Grandmother bestows a blessing.
I spoke earlier of generations ~ do you think this moment for the nieces of the Bride and Groom will not be forever remembered?
It’s all about family!
Traditions come in all forms and this text in Hebrew is keeping with the traditions of the Jewish faith.
The moment when Eli’s parents dress him in the kittel.
A Father blessing his son…
I like the explanation that “circling “seven times” corresponds with the seven wedding blessings and demonstrates that the groom is the centre of the Brides’ life”
That moment that it hits you that you’re married!
I just love the intensity of celebration that this wedding exuded!
Another generational moment as the Groom celebrates with his grandfather!
From one generation to another! Jamie celebrating with Grandmother!
I asked Jamie to share some words of wisdom regarding planning a wedding:
“To my newly engaged best friend I would say, Make sure you use a great photographer! After the wedding is over, the only tangible reminders of that night are the photos.
Jamie and Eli ~ Thank you for bringing me into your world!
So if you’re planning a wedding and reading this ~ this is who I am, a lover of the moment, the subtle times that happen ever so quickly and are all but gone unless capture by an experienced, passionate storyteller!
A special thank you to all those special vendors that make the magic happen!
