Real Wedding: Carmelita and Dan, II
April 16, 2009
Tri State

When I first saw this wedding, it was the ceremony that honestly took my breath away. Something about the simplicity of the style, the perfect silhouette of the bride's gown, the joy that is radiating from everyone. It's just pure beauty.

From Carmelita...

It was important to us to represent our cultures (Jewish and Filipino/Irish) in a non-denominational ceremony.  Daniel’s father created our chuppah from green bamboo and my mother sewed the fabric for the canopy.  We also incorporated the Filipino veil ceremony.  (The Irish side was most clearly represented by the variety of whiskey offered at the reception.)

Karen Wise is the genius behind the photographs and she has so much more in store for you guys today. Back in a bit!
