This weeks wedding was one for the books! The couple Aliza and Daniel were such a hoot! Through out the day we could not stop commenting on how much they were in love. There was much laughter, shouts of joy and tears for those who could not be there. They were very thoughtful and so full of joy! They were soaking in a day filled with so much love!
The day started meeting the groom at his hotel where he read his letter from the bride. She also had his gift delivered there. I must say as a musician myself this was one of the coolest gifts I have ever seen. It was a Fender Telecaster customized with photos from their lives. There were photos on the front and back of the guitar of people they love and have lost. I bet Daniel will be inspired when he plays it.
We then left the hotel to go to the Temple where the wedding was going to be held. The Temple has a rich history in Atlanta. The Temple (formally, the Hebrew Benevolent Congregation) is a Reform synagogue. The The temple houses the oldest Jewish congregation in Atlanta, the Hebrew Benevolent Society, was established in 1860 to serve the needs of German-Jewish immigrants. The Temple was designed by Philip Trammell Shutze in a Neoclassical style and was completed in 1931. During the 1950s and 1960s The Temple became a center for civil rights advocacy and still is today.
The family and congregation were so gracious. It was great celebration of love and joining of two families. The ceremony was presided by the brides brother Rabbi Arie Kaiman. He did a fantastic job with the ceremony and you could tell it was coming from his heart when spoke to everyone. When the Kabblat Panim began we knew the wedding was getting started for sure. Ari took the men to the Bedeken where had been waiting for them. This where Ari directed Ketubah signing during this time. Once again Ari did a fantastic job and so spoke so heartfelt. After the Ketubah signing everyone went to the sanctuary for the wedding ceremony .
After the ceremony that is when the party really began. The reception hall was decorated by Jim White Designs. He did a fantastic job and worked through out the night decorating for the reception. The band was the USB band and the brought the house down! Also during the reception we sneaked off and did a few photos during the blue hour.
All in all this was beautiful wedding with some of the greatest people out there. It is times like this where I am feel truly blessed and honored to be a Atlanta wedding photographer. Documenting special moment in people’s lives.
