David and Franny's Wedding

We got dressed for the occasion in the Marlow hotel that's very special, we'll do our best to feedback on it. We joined the family in the hotel's second floor and had the 'כתובה' written and signed by the witnesses :)

David and Franny's wedding occurred so close to our own wedding so I guess we were too overwhelmed and exited to actually experience it in full. Our own wedding memory is still so fresh in our mind that I guess we compared certain elements from their wedding and ours. Our wedding was not Reformist like David and Franny's so we've seen different things that we might have wanted in our own wedding, in example the fact that Franny was asked if she wishes to be wed (in a conservative wedding the bride isn't asked at all...) and they expressed blessings to one another, that was very sweet and exciting, Also I was asked to be one of the holders of the חופה which is a very honorable place, I'm very happy to be a part of this family. Perli led her father to the חופה and Briana led Franny.
The ceremony was a bit long to my taste and I think that if a Rabbi doesn't usually speak Hebrew he shouldn't bless trying it... but still it was beautiful because the young couple was a more powerful sight than the Rabbi. Perli dressed to kill with her new black dress, new red shoes and a shiny bracelet.The young couple seemed very excited :) And there was a large investment in gifts and graphic ornaments. additional Pictures and videos will be uploaded as soon as humanly possible :) at the end of the party we returned to our room and got ready for a new crazy day (Tomorrow is new years...)
good night
