The Modern Interfaith Wedding Details

Sarah and Adam met on a dance floor.

Sarah was there with a date that wouldn’t dance with her and Adam stepped in. We did a killer move where we linked arms back to back and then the person in the air would kick their feet high. It was instant trust, and a whole lot of fun. The other guy didn’t last.  On our first date (after the dancing) we painted the chorus of a rendition of Loui Armstrong’s “What a wonderful world,” on Sarah’s bedroom wall in big cursive letters”

Cut to their wedding.  They decided to opt for a non-traditional set-up and had a spiral, instead of an aisle. So instead of walking down an aisle when they walked through the spiral all the guests sang, “What a Wonderful World.”

The couple worked with their dear friends at Sunnyside Up, an urban farm,  to grow all of their flowers.

It was an amazing way to pull in values we cared about and include some of the most important people in our lives.  We love a local organization called GrowHaus, they work with food justice and grow hydroponic lettuce. So we worked with them to grow our centerpieces. Lettuce lined the tables and our guests had scissors to cut their own salad.

We did modern and personal takes on Jewish Tradition (Sarah’s background), wrote our own vows, wrote our own Ketubah, had a Chuppah made from Sarah’s 107 year old great-aunt’s table cloth, and finished it off with a good ‘ol fashioned, stomping on the glass and a cheer of “Mazel Tov!  We had an absolutely rocking Horah, a traditional Jewish dance where the bride and groom are hoisted in the air on chairs while the guests do a circle dance around. It got rowdy!”

Their advice to other couples:

“Focus on the ceremony. We loved using it as an opportunity to really talk about what we hoped for and were excited (and not so excited) to work for in our marriage. We were so glad we put time and thought into the ceremony. Remember to take deep breaths through the day and take it in. It is really easy to get separated because there are a lot of people that want to talk to you. We decided to make sure that we were together the whole night. It sounds so simple, but it really made a big difference. Notice what is going on around you. And breathe it all in.
We were surrounded by the people we love. It was an absolutely amazing experience to commit to one another in such a public way and still have it feel so intimate. It was amazing”
