Temple Judea Miami Wedding and Ocean Club Reception



Planning your wedding should be a blast! You get engaged, you run out and buy a magazine or two. Your Mom, Sister, Grandmother and best friends chime in…you’ve been looking at a few too many wedding blogs and it can just be too much ~ too many choices, ideas ~ too much inspiration! So how do you make this wedding yours?

Quite often I ask a Bride if she and her fiance have sat down and discussed with each other what kind of wedding they want to have. Quite often that questions is met with a brief pause and usually I hear “no we haven’t”.

So to make this process a little less stressful, I suggest that they have that chat and choose maybe 4-6 words that describe their idea of their unique wedding experience. Those words can range from formal to casual, traditional to contemporary, elegant to relaxed, fun, crazy, sophisticated ~ you get the idea but think of what makes this wedding a reflection of you and your fiance. I think you’ll find decision making a little easier.

Today I want to share with you Deborah and Jeremy’s Temple Judea Miami wedding! Their wedding had so many beautiful moments to capture. But it all started the moment that Deborah met Jeremy ~ then the parents met the girlfriend/boyfriend and then there’s the ” I want to marry your daughter” discussion and so began a series of special events that bring us to their wedding experience!

Once a love story that’s right begins its journey it’s always in a state of perpetual motion ~ so once Jeremy proposed, Deborah responded in the affirmative (see their engagement session) then the phones calls to Mom’s, girlfriends and best of friends are placed and the wedding planning begins in earnest!

The Rabbi and witnesses had just left the Rabbi’s study after the signing of the Ketubah. I find myself alone with Deborah and Jeremy. For me this moment is so wonderful! It’s a time on their wedding day where it’s just the two of them, quiet, pensive and you can see by Deborah’s expression joyful with the anticipation of the moment their are united under their Chupah.

A wonderful sendoff as the happy couple leave Temple Judea Miami ~ I like to think that the hundreds of bubbles floating around are wishes of joy and love from each and every guest for the newlyweds.

The wedding ceremony took place at the beautiful Temple Judea in Coral Gables and was performed by Rabbi Edwin Goldberg. The celebration followed at the Ocean Club on Key Biscayne. Floral decor was designed by Raffi of Petal Productions and the party was an amazing celebration with Drew T Productions keeping everyone on their toes all night long! Now keeping this all flowing in harmony was the amazing planner Robyn Bruck!

So planning your wedding can and should be an amazing experience! Finding the right team to take your wedding dreams to reality successfully is a must! Look carefully, ask for referrals from those that have had the wedding experience be they a friend who just got married, the Mom who helped planned her daughter’s wedding, that amazing wedding planner that knows the value of a great team working together in harmony to bring it all together perfectly. You won’t be sorry doing your homework and choosing wisely!

Looking forward to being on your wedding dream team!
