So I am perpetually behind on blogging weddings, well blogging in general actually. April and May were just crazy with weddings and now that I have a breather I am committed to getting you all caught up on what is happening over here with me.
Allison and Josh’s details:
Ceremony and Reception- Starlight theatre
- Flowers and Event design- Trapp and Co
- Video- RPM entertainment
The room was AMAZING! Trapp did a phenomenal job with the space.
I present Allison.

And the result- after the dress.
The first meeting.
This was a first for me. I have shot a bunch of Jewish weddings and never had the chance to cover a Bedeken ceremony.
Basically it is a veiling ceremony. Where the bride and groom are in different rooms, one with only men the other with
only women. The groom then gets paraded in and veils the bride. Pretty cool. I am not really sure what it is about exactly
but I did google it and found this explanation. It is a bit long so I if you are interested go check it out.
At Jewish weddings there is a traditon where as soon as the ceremony is over the bride and groom go into a room for a
few minutes by themselves. Many times they need a few friends to keep a watch out. Sometimes the guards are curious.
Inside said room.
The most elaborate cake table I have ever seen. Pretty cool.

I love moments like this. Here they are parcticing their first dance backstage before they were introduced.
A bit of craziness on my end here. Back in my newspaper days I loved to mount cameras in cool places to gain a differnt
perspective on things. So we mounted a camera in the rafters on a remote that we were able to shoot with all night. This
is great as it enables me to shoot the same scene from two different angles. You can see me shooting on the floor in this
Josh’s reaction during the toasts.
Thanks for looking. Check back soon for another.
