Will and Emily's wedding combined traditional Jewish elements with fun, personalized nods to the couple. Being married under a Chuppah was an important must-do and it made it even sweeter that the Chuppah has been used for many family and friends' weddings. The couple's siblings also held the Chuppah and the ceremony was led by Emily's cousin, Dan, who is a Rabbi.
They also tied in other Jewish wedding traditions such as the ketubah signing, breaking the glass at the end of the ceremony, and dancing the hora. They also included a purple vase under the Chuppah that belonged to Emily's mother where Emily put her bouquet during the ceremony. Emily made the escort cards herself (paper flowers!) and other fun touches included a candy buffet with their favorite treats and the cake topper (wedding versions of their favorite Mario Kart characters!). Finally, Emily's childhood best friend is an amazing Jeweler in DC and helped them choose the perfect rings.
This is a must-see!
