Ben & Heather made a few bold choices for their wedding. They decided to have an outdoor ceremony in Minnesota. They went for lots of black and white photography. And, they decided to stick with tradition and not see each other prior to the chuppah ceremony, not even for the Ketubah signing.
The couple chose a stunning watercolor Ketubah. (Ben & Heather, let us know where you ordered?)
There used to be such a “thing” about black at weddings. But, oh how elegant the bridesmaids looks in black along the crisp white of the tent and tabletops. Très chic! The beauty and simplicity of candles on the long tables in the tents, with an evergreen runner, is so fashionable. After all, the green, which Heather used to create emphasis on her cake and the tables was 2013 Pantone’s color of the year.
We hope all our MJW brides out there take note of the couple’s use of black and white photography. It’s so romantic. Plus, we really do just all look a lot better?
Finally, we want to point out the small detail, but wonderful addition of berries to the champagne cocktail. Elevates the champagne toast to a Modern Jewish Wedding Detail that we love. (P.S. Works to make water pretty too!)
