It wasn't my intention to post these photos so late but I guess that is what happens when you have a fully booked November and try to move in one month!
I am still trying to catch up with the idea that we are now in 2010. My, how time flies....
Lori and Allan are such a special couple and I am so glad we can call them friends. Being at their wedding was not work at all. I loved spending the day with Lori and her friends as they got ready and helping out where I could. There was so much joking and laughing too, it was great.
Lori and Allan were married at one of our favorite venues, Barr Mansion, on November 1, 2009. What a beautiful bride and day! I had such a hard time narrowing down the photos for this post. So....enjoy!
Lori's veil was very special as it was made for her by a friend. The lace on the edges is actually from a Sephardic Jewish mantilla which their friend brought from Spain.
Love this photo of Lori. She has gorgeous eyes and such a pretty smile.
This is what kept the boys occupied while the girls were getting ready.
The first look. Happened fast!
This wedding was a first for us- a Jewish wedding. I was really looking forward to it as I have never experienced one. What a beautiful ceremony!
The signing of the Ketubah or wedding contract happened before the ceremony.
The Ketubah was a work of art. Quotes from the Song of Solomon were written throughout the intertwined tree branches.
The chuppah was created by Allan's maternal grandparents over 30 years ago. The detail work is amazing.
Here was the moment we DID NOT want to miss. Allan breaking the glass. "Mazel Tov!"
The bride and groom announced with the blowing of the shofar.
Time to celebrate!
What a special day for two very special people. Allan and Lori, thank you for your friendship and allowing us to share in your day. It was an honor.
