Nicole and Josh began their wedding day with an emotional first look along a purple-sage-lined desert pathway at their resort wedding venue.
After some pre-wedding portraits, the bride and groom signed their intricately-decorated Ketubah in the presence of a small group of witnesses and family. Following this private ceremony was a traditional ceremony under the wedding canopy Chuppah for all guests to witness.
Nicole and Josh’s parents and siblings gathered in close for the seven blessings and priestly blessing (tallit wrap) of the bride and groom.
Following the chuppah ceremony, the couple mingled with their guests at an elegant cocktail hour set to live string music on an outdoor patio overlooking the beautiful greens of the resort.
Nicole and Josh wrapped up their wedding night with a joyous reception celebration, including an energetic Hora!
