Hey there, readers! We love it when couples bring significant parts of their everyday life into their weddings. Being able to catch a glimpse of how the couple interacts on a day-to-day basis is heart-warming and always leaves us smiling, especially when it’s something full of faith and tradition. This is precisely what Shimra and Jonathan did for their Jewish wedding. Not only was their ceremony beautiful and full of light and love, it also featured Jewish traditions, dances, and even a temple built from stone from Israel.
Congratulations to Shimra and Jonathan! Thank you to Robb McCormick Photography for these lovely shots!
Shimra and Jonathan were married Labor Day weekend at the Torat Emet Synagogue in Bexley, Ohio. Shimra, with her closest friends and family around, got ready for the most exciting day of her life. As she stepped into her custom lace and tulle gown, everyone in the room could feel her overwhelming joy.
In the same building, Jonathon calmly got ready with anticipation. After the last cufflink had been fastened and one more final spray of hairspray, Shimra and Jonathon headed out of the synagogue separately in anticipation of their first look.
The perfect scene was set in a close friend’s private garden on a Bexley estate that is something out of a fairy tale. After a laughter-filled formal photo session, the pair headed back to the synagogue to begin the festivities. From the band that flew in from New York City to the artfully crafted food made by the bride’s brother (who also is the chef at the JCC), to temple built from stone flown in from Israel, this wedding was anything but ordinary.
