Michael and I have know each other since preschool, when we were THREE. Since we’ve know each other longer than our siblings, we signed each other’s ketubot as witnesses. Kinda awesome. I wish I had more photos, but until the reception was starting to gear up my camera battery was plugged in behind the bar, charging. Doh! At least not having a camera in my hands forced me to be more present in the ceremony, not a bad thing. One more awesome detail that WISH I had a photo of: Michael and Lauren used the quilt from our chuppah for their chuppah. Beautiful. It looked so different too because they hung it up way higher and with more of an angle from the front to back as well as rotated 90 degrees from how it was displayed at our wedding.
The ceremony was beautiful, and I even got a shout out in the Rabbi’s introduction. I haven’t been to another Jewish wedding in a while, so it was interesting to see how different couples/rabbis do things differently.
Here are the few photos I did get that aren’t crap. Ben took some of them.
If Ben and I had decided to get married in the DC area, this is one of the locations we we were looking at: the atrium at Meadowlark Gardens.
