Mazel Tov!

Tonight we put on our Jewish Wedding, in my wedding planning class. There are 2 groups in the class. The first group went first, and their wedding was a traditional everyday type wedding. They did a pretty good job, but there were a lot of mistakes.

Our group was up next, and let me just say we took the cake. We had Chris come and be the groom, Brian Hogge be the Rabbi, and other family members for other parts. It turned out awesome. It was so much fun, and well worth all the hard work we put into it. Next week we will be doing our table settings to be graded. I will show pictures then.

It was really neat to be the bride and groom, and to reenact a different religions wedding. They have some pretty strange traditions, but very neat at the same time.


Groom and Rabbi - A woman in our group made the flowers and yamakas. They turned out great

Walking around the groom 7 times - The Chuppah was made out of muslin and tied with fishing wire, and pvc pipes.

Mozel Tov!

I'm kind of jealous you get to take that class. It looks like so much fun to me. and it must be kind of interesting to learn about other ceremonies...I have no idea, but am curious! Way to rock the class! I'm glad you "took the cake"
