A Chanukkah Modern Jewish Wedding from tPoz Photography

There’s only five more shopping days until the first night of Chanukkah!  We’re celebrating the only way we know–with a Modern Jewish Wedding.

A Chanukkah Modern Jewish Wedding

You may remember Alyssa & Jonathan? They were our very first winning MJW couple.  They won a personalized chuppah topper, Ketubah.com supplied their Ketubah and their engagement pictures were even featured in the first edition of our magazine.

Alyssa & Jonathan were engaged at a Chanukkah celebration surrounded by their families.  They got married the same way.  During Chanukkah surrounded by family and friends.  They even lit the menorah as a part of the Ketubah signing ritual and had a beautiful blessing from their parents under the chuppah.

The Modern Jewish Wedding Details

Pick out a detail and we’ll tell you how it is a Modern Jewish one.  From Alyssa’s bridesmaids’ matching robes at the beginning of the day, until the Soufaniyout as the guest gift at the end of the night.  Alyssa & Jonathan created lasting memories for their guests.

They opted to read love letters that they had written to one another, instead of saying vows.  The perfect example of taking a tradition and putting on the “Modern” spin.

Oh, and Alyssa who loves Disney was escorted down the aisle by her parents to “When You Wish Upon a Star,” and represented herself on the cake topper as wearing Disney mouse ears.  While Jono, as he is affectionately referred to,  got the baseball hat.

Jono appeased his guests by getting up on stage and singing his famous rendition of “Love Shack” with his best man.  Can’t you hear the music in your head?

Mazel Tov Alyssa & Jonathan.  We wish you a Happy New Year, Anniversary & Chanukkah!
