Can I just start by saying that I absolutely LOVE Jewish weddings?! I love the symbolism of the chuppah, and the ceremonial smashing of the glass at the ceremony. And who doesn’t love the crazy hora “chair dance”?! So much fun!
The best though, is how the families and community come together to celebrate the newly married couple. This wedding had more hugging and laughing and congratulatory handshakes than I’ve ever seen. It was so evident how much the bride & groom are loved and cherished by their family & friends.
Kelly & Zach chose to have their wedding at the gorgeous Spirit Ridge Vineyard Resort in Osoyoos, BC… such a stunning venue surrounded by rolling vineyards and overlooking Osoyoos Lake. The ceremony took place on the rooftop of the resort, so guests could truly soak in the beauty of the environment. I love that they opted for a First Look & portraits beforehand, as this allowed them to maximize their time with their guests and linger over drinks during the courtyard cocktail hour.
I’m very grateful to Kelly & Zach for welcoming me like family on their big day… such a special celebration to have been a part of. Wishing these two nothing but love & happiness as they embark on another fabulous life adventure! ;) Mazel tov!
