You know it’s going to be a good day when you walk in & the bridesmaids are doing the Soulja Boy dance together! That fun energy set the tone for Alyssa+Jonathan’s Sheraton Inner Harbor wedding, and the rest of the day followed suit! Even though it was freakin COLD out, Alyssa+Jono did their First Look out on the convention center walkway, and the rest of their bridal party joined them. Afterwards, they signed their Ketubah, Jono veiled his bride (bedeken ceremony), their sisters lit the 4th candle of the Menorah, and their moms did some plate smashing, before they headed down the aisle to wed.
Alyssa, a huge Disney fan, was escorted down the aisle by her parents to “When You Wish Upon a Star” performed by a string quartet, bringing smiles to all who know her. Under their custom-made Chuppah, they opted to read love letters that they had written to one another, instead of saying vows. Beautiful, emotion-filled love letters. A joyful “Mazel Tov” filled the air, and rose petals were tossed, as the newlyweds made their way back down the aisle.
The reception was kicked off by the band “Spectrum“, and everyone joined in for the horah! The dance floor was packed the entire night, and every last detail was attended to by the amazing Lemon+Lime design team. I loved the purple uplighting, and beautiful floral arrangements on the tables, as well as the sparkly table numbers. Jono appeased his guests by getting up on stage and singing his famous rendition of “Love Shack” with his best man – it.was.AWESOME!! At the end of the night, guests picked up a satchel of donuts on their way out the door, in celebration of Chanukah!
Alyssa+Jono – your wedding was amazing!! I was thrilled to capture the day for you, and I am thankful to have had the talented Marcella assist me!
Much Love, ♥ tPoz
