A wooden chuppah decorated with white fabric and flowers was the setting for their Jewish wedding and the Rabbi emphasized it was the ideal time for their wedding.
The day started with the bride getting ready and she looked stunning in a white lace bridal gown with thin straps and a plunging necklace. She wore her hair up and natural make-up. Her bouquet was a messy-styled floral arrangement of white flowers with splashes of yellow. This tied in with the styling of the wedding with a lemon, sky blue and eucalyptus green color theme with rustic modern touches. The groom looked dashing in a tuxedo with a bow tie, floral handkerchief and blue buttonhole.
Their first look outdoors at the Kortright Centre for Conservation was a romantic moment and gave us time for beautiful candid wedding photos. As Itay turned to see his bride, his breath was taken away for a second. They held hands, hugged and compliment each other on how gorgeous they looked.
We had some time for couple portraits in the woods and also, before the jewish wedding ceremony, we captured some bridal party and family photos. That sweet afternoon light, those yellow flowers and the gorgeous bride and groom, it was all bliss for our photography team.
Next was the Ketubah signing with the Rabbi and family members and then the ceremony commenced. After the family walked down the aisle, Itay put the veil on Adi. Then she walked around her groom seven times. Then the Rabbi and all family members gave individual blessings to the couple before they exchanged rings. The joyful ceremony concluded with Itay stepping on glass according to Jewish tradition.
The wedding reception setup was pretty and rustic. The couple decided to keep the florals to a minimum and instead decorated with many cacti, natural elements and fairy lights. Tiny cacti were given to each guest to indicated their table number and tied in with the rustic theme. Wooden centerpieces with lemons and floating candles looked so stylish. And a white lace bunting banner hung behind the bride and groom’s chairs. Impressively the bride designed and made most of the DIY decorations herself.
During the reception, the bride changed into a stylish mermaid dress and the groom took off his jacket and added a bright yellow bow tie to mix up his look. Then the couple performed the Hora (a circle dance) with the family. They cut the gold-flecked white and blue wedding cake and heard touching speeches from their family and friends. Like every Jewish wedding we’ve done the photography and videography for, there was lots of dancing. Later they played one of this Toronto wedding photographer team’s favorite games – the shoe game. It’s always funny and expressive.
