On Sunday dad joined Lauren and Jason for their wedding at the Renaissance Vinoy Resort. The couple had assembled an awesome team of vendors including Dream Day Productions as the coordinator, Darla Stafford for hair and makeup, Marci Vitkus for the officiant, Delma’s, The Flower Booth for the florist, A Linen Valley for, well, linensand Rob Sword of Sword Sounds for the DJ.
Jewish weddings are very meaningful because they include traditions that go back for centuries. People often say that it breaks tradition for the groom to see the bride before the ceremony, but in a Jewish wedding that IS the tradition! The couple meets to sign the marriage contract, the ketubah, before meeting under the chuppah to exchange vows.
Dad said the couple’s family and friends were friendly and welcoming. Lauren’s mom made his day when she told him that she thought it was a blessing to have him there. It was a beautiful wedding and we are so happy for the newlyweds. Congratulations!
