Hillary and Andrew traveled from their home on the east coast to Scottsdale for their desert destination Modern Jewish Wedding at the luxurious Four Seasons Resort.
Andrew, his future father-in-law, and Andrew’s groomsmen got ready in between sharing drinks and playing rounds of table shuffleboard in the casual atmosphere of the Proof Canteen.
After getting ready, Hillary and Andrew shared a private first glance moment among the saguaros and mesquite trees just beyond their ceremony site. Next, the bride and groom headed inside for a ketubah signing in the presence of their parents and siblings. Then it was time to head back outside for a gorgeous wedding ceremony on the Four Season’s outdoor fountain terrace, set against the boulder backdrop of Pinnacle Peak.
Hillary and Andrew were wed under a flowing chuppah, adorned with pale blue, white, and yellow sunflower bouquets, and flanked by their parents, 7 bridesmaids, and 9 groomsmen. Following the ceremony and group photos, family and guests enjoyed dinner and live music. The family celebrated with a traditional Krenzel dance, to honor the bride Hillary as being the last child of her family to be married. Then it was on to an energetic Hora dance with the bride and groom and their parents being hoisted in chairs high above their wedding guests.
