Johnny & Lakiesha
Garden Court Summer Wedding in Kentucky
Due to the crazy amount of rain we have been getting in Kentucky, I did not get to meet Johnny & Lakiesha for engagement photos until TWO WEEKS before their wedding day. As soon as we got in to our groove at the engagement session, I knew their wedding was going to be a blast. This wedding was also going to be a first for me! This is the first time I have gotten to photograph a Jewish ceremony. Their wedding day incorporated elements from both Jewish and Christian traditions to represent the faiths of the groom and bride respectively. Both religions have beautiful and unique elements woven in throughout the day which resulted in a true celebration in Louisville, Kentucky.
Many traditional Jewish wedding elements are shown in their photos, but my favorite Jewish wedding tradition isn’t in this blog post. Following the ceremony, tradition dictates that couples spend a set amount of time in yichud (or seclusion). If you have been close to anyone who has gotten married, you know that moments for the bride and groom to actually just be together on wedding day are far and few between. I absolutely love this tradition that allows for the first few minutes of married life to be spent alone together.
