This is the story of Jessica + Amir & their traditional Jewish backyard garden wedding.
She prepared for the day in her childhood home.
The refrigerator bursting with flowers that her & her mom placed together perfectly for her bouquet.
Intricate fans & blessings from the bride for the ladies & whisky + kippots for the men, all of their loved ones gathered before the ceremony.
Singing & dancing filled the air as Amir was led to veil his bride, his arms linked with his fathers’.
During the ceremony, her eyes on him as she circled seven times, marking that he will now be her home.
& together the stepped under the chuppah, soul mates together again.
Flower seeds, pale pinks, & bird cages scattered throughout.
Shadows dance across the tables from the afternoon light shimmering through the trees.
Laughter, cheers, & joy filled the air.
Ready to start their new life in California side by side.
& they celebrated the night away under twinkling lights as their guests entertained with backflips, pushups, & juggling.
