Pennsylvania Art Museum Modern Jewish Wedding

What began as a chance meeting in Washington D.C. thanks to their mutual friends turned into a real-deal romance for Madison and Adam. Fast forward to Adam’s romantic proposal in front of the U.S. Capitol and the rest, as they say, is history.

These two began planning their dream “I do” set in Pennsylvania, weaving in plenty of Jewish wedding traditions throughout the blueprint of their day. For their elegant springtime affair, they chose the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and let the impressive setting play backdrop to both the ceremony and reception. The couple used lush natural greens to bring the outdoors in with all white floral design for a classic, clean and neutral look.

No surprise, Madison stole the show in her vintage wedding gown with delicate pink appliqué previously worn by her grandmother. Not only did the gown fit Madison like a glove but it was a unique bridal fashion choice we wholeheartedly adore.

From their vows beneath the chuppah to the traditional Jewish hora, this was no doubt a day to always remember.

The bride, Madison shares more about their love story in her own words:

I was at a bar on U Street in D.C. and ran into my friend Joel from Penn State who was in town visiting his friend from high school, Adam. We started talking and I invited him to a techno bar with some friends and we later exchanged numbers. To be honest, I knew {he was the one} on our first date. Not obviously but I had a feeling. For Adam, it was on our California trip before I left for graduate school … or when we were fighting about politics. We broke up once because we weren’t communicating, then 6 months later we hosted a Passover dinner together and then got back together. We discussed what had gone wrong in the first time and now are much stronger because of it.
