Miami Beach Wedding : Gillian & Alex
It’s an honor to photograph weddings! They each have a personality…that reflect those of the Bride and Groom.
Gillian and Alex’s wedding was a wonderful celebration of love and traditions. The Jewish wedding traditions create a meaningful link between past, present, and future. The moment I entered Gillian’s suite at the Miami Beach Resort, I was surrounded by tradition. The bottle of wine that was saved from Gillian’s Bat Mitzvah for the Bride’s parents toast, the details in her wedding dress in which she had veiling from her Grandmother’s wedding dresses, the beads from Grandmother’s dress that were worn on Gillian’s mother’s wedding dress…to the wearing of her Mother’s veil-Tradition!
The excitement and joy during the Tish when the men gathered around Alex, the Rabbi and the Fathers as they reviewed and signed the Ketubah and sang in celebration letting the ladies know that they are on their way. Then there’s the B’deken, the moment that the men escort Alex to Gillian, where he makes sure that this is the Bride he’s to marry and then lowers her veil.
I could go on and on about the beauty of a Jewish Marriage, the Kiddushin (betrothal ceremony) and the sheva b’rachot (seven blessings) under the Huppah, the breaking of the glass…Tradition! This wedding was a joy for myself and Ricardo Aguiar to photograph…Thank you Gillian and Alex_ Mazel Tov!!!
