Jordan & Kent wanted an old world style feel for their December wedding, as we incorporated her Jewish faith into their wedding while also being inclusive of Kent & their family & friends of other belief systems.
Jordan’s custom dress by Anna Maier flowed beautifully as she met Kent under their amazing floral covered lace chuppah for their ketubah signing & badeken, the traditional veiling of the bride. As the second part of their ceremony began, they completed a mutual seven circling as their friends, family & large bridal party of 26 people watched.
The two Kiddushin and the Nisuin were particularly meaningful as the chalices that bore the wine were special to both Kent and Jordan. For the first blessing of the wine, Jordan and Kent used a chalice that belonged to bridesmaid Michelle’s departed brother, Nick. For the second, Kent presented Jordan with a self-carved cup made of pecan wood sourced from the Whitener Ranch in Burton, Texas, where Kent is from.
The ceremony ended with a bang as Kent stepped on the glass and all yelled Mazel Tov – queuing the brass band to begin the recession into the second line. The glass shards now reside within a mezuzah, hung on their front door.
As they led guests back in from their second line, everyone was greeted with a stunning charcuterie display including croquembouche towers & a cheese wheel stacked “wedding cake”. Later in the evening, birthday cake was also served in celebration of one of their close friends. After dancing the night away, enjoying amazing food & the cigar & whiskey bar, the night ended in a sparkler sendoff and pedicab taking them to the after party.
