How do I begin to describe Emily and David’s beautiful, outdoor Jewish wedding celebration? Heart-felt. Endearing. Unique. Genuine. Fun! …much like the two of them. When I first met Emily and David we spent a couple of hours getting to know each other over dinner and wine. They were open, warm, playful, and I went home crossing my fingers that they’d ask me to share in their wedding day and capture their memories. They’re both lovers of wine, and they chose to have their outdoor Jewish ceremony and reception at the Flaghill Winery in Lee New Hampshire. The day couldn’t be more perfect with the sun shining and a warm breeze. Emily and David had an intimate moment and emotional first look in the vineyards together, and their wedding day was filled with beautiful Jewish traditions including the groom’s tisch, the bedecken where David veiled Emily, the signing of the ketubah, a lovely chuppah, and the breaking of the glass during their ceremony. They honored a few of their family members who had passed by hanging photos on chairs at the ceremony (I love this!), and later moved these into their reception area on their cake table so they were always a part of the celebration. Their hora was so large it was held outdoors (I always love capturing people’s expressions as they’re in the chairs or watching from below). Emily and David had a choreographed first dance which included both classy and quirky moments allowing their personalities to come through. They had adorable, and one-of-a-kind, dinosaur cake toppers which went along perfectly with the reference to a pair of dinosaurs during their ceremony and vows (David’s vows were very striking and I wouldn’t be surprised if everyone there was moved to tears). The night ended with surprise fireworks which could be seen just past the vineyards. Every detail of Emily and David’s wedding day was perfect and beautifully celebrated their love and personalities. I had such a wonderful time getting to know these two love birds. Congratulations again, Emily and David!
