Deena and Brian had an absolutely gorgeous, Orthodox Jewish wedding at Bridgeport Art Center last fall. Something that made this wedding so special was  the couple’s dedication to celebrating their shared Jewish heritage to the fullest. They crafted a wedding that truly honored their Jewish traditions and backgrounds, as well as incorporating their family to the highest degree. The pictures by Ed & Aileen Photography are absolutely gorgeous – they did an amazing job capturing the emotion and love of the wedding.

The decor in this wedding was very elegant and traditional, with lovely orchids hanging from the chuppah. Gorgeous white flower petals lined the aisle, as well as tall pieces holding candles and whole lillies. All of the floral was done by KLA Designs.

A friend made the escort cards, which were propped up with birch wood planks. We love the “D” and “B” which adorned the wall behind the escort card table. Together, the letters formed what looked like an “H” – the first letter of their married name “Horowitz”.

Deena and Brian embraced their heritage in this wedding by having a traditional Orthodox Jewish ceremony: first came the bedeken and tish, followed by the ketubah signing and then finally the Jewish ceremony.

We love the raw emotion that emanates from the photo of Brian lifting Deena’s veil – it was easy to see that the unveiling was such an emotional and important moment for the two of them.

They included many personal touches into their wedding ceremony, including the tallit and the different kiddush cups – which were family heirlooms.

The whole space coupled with the decor created a rustic glam feel. Tall centerpieces with a mix of mercury glass adorned the tables.

KLA Designs also provided the lighting.

Catering was provided by Wolfgang Puck, and their gorgeous wedding cake was provided by Zelda’s Kosher Gourmet
