Today marks the 3 thirty days anniversary of our epic wedding (wedded life happens to be lovely up to now, thank you for asking!), therefore why don’t we commemorate it with your final wedding article: an entertaining yet academic piece utilizing the last pictures from our nuptials to illustrate the glorious traditions of a Jewish wedding.
Prior to the wedding service, the Bride and Groom (us!) signal the Ketubah: a Jewish wedding agreement.
The Ketubah may be the sacred Jewish wedding agreement, and Colin and I also finalized it within an intimate room prior to the real wedding party. A Ketubah is usually artfully decorated (can you notice exactly just exactly how pretty ours is?) and certainly will be independently commissioned by the musician, or bought from a website like Ketubah.com (truly, a niche site of the true title exists) where we got ours.
What’s therefore wonderful in regards to a Ketubah is that you could modify it with language suitable to your style of wedding. You are able to select really old-fashioned (borderline sexist) language, or get the opposite extreme and get a wildly hippie Ketubah which declares, “Our wedding paints sparkling streaks of love in to the world!”
Our marriage party admiring the Ketubah that is ornate as Cantor informs the storyline behind it.
Colin and I also chose a middle that is delightful for the marriage agreement, as well as the primary text of our Ketubah (which now hangs above our fireplace) checks out:
