Los Angeles, California
Myriam and Barry tied the knot in their own backyard high up in the Hollywood Hills. The couple had a traditional Jewish wedding that was moving and funny at different times, but always joyous. Rabbi Perry Netter spoke so eloquently about love that he almost had me in tears.
Many of the touches were hand-made, including this ring pillow sewed by the bride’s mom.
As the bride was getting ready, she spoke lovingly about her husband-to-be. She called him truly a good man. Judging by the way Barry looks at Myriam I’d say he feels the same love for her.
The chuppah was held aloft by Barry’s brother and Myriam’s mom and siblings.
Isn’t this Ketubah just stunning?
Despite the hot day, the guests danced the afternoon away. Thanks to DJ Paolo who not only kept the guests entertained but also helped with coordinating the ceremony and reception.
Myriam’s expression is priceless as she’s hoisted up on a chair for the Hora.
I especially enjoyed meeting Barry’s mom Sydel. I could listen to her for hours. She told me she’s been waiting for Barry to get married forever. Here’s a photo of her and her “beautiful daughter-in-law” as she kept calling Myriam.
Marriage is not only about the union of a couple but also a joining of families. Seeing Barry and Myriam with their families I could definitely feel the bond between them all.
