A Westin Diplomat Golf  Resort Wedding




Planning your wedding should be a blast! You get engaged, you run out and buy a magazine or two. Your Mom, Sister, Grandmother and best friends chime in…you’ve been looking at a few too many wedding blogs and it can just be too much ~ too many choices, ideas ~ too much inspiration! So how do you make this wedding yours?

Quite often I ask a Bride if she and her fiance have sat down and discussed with each other what kind of wedding they want to have. Quite often that questions is met with a brief pause and usually I hear “no we haven’t”.

So to make this process a little less stressful, I suggest that they have that chat and choose maybe 4-6 words that describe their idea of their unique wedding experience. Those words can range from formal to casual, traditional to contemporary, elegant to relaxed, fun, crazy, sophisticated ~ you get the idea but think of what makes this wedding a reflection of you and your fiance. I think you’ll find decision making a little easier.

So I have this amazing wedding to share with you today! Hillary and Jonathan enjoyed perfect weather for their outdoor Jewish ceremony at the lovely Westin Diplomat Golf Resort. From the moment Dad had a look at his daughter in a wedding gown I knew we were in for a wonderfully emotional, touching wedding!

Hillary and Jonathan decided on having a first look and we took advantage of the opportunity to create some beautiful portraits all over the resort.

And they took advantage of some quiet moments to reflect on the experience they were living in this moment and relax knowing that this is just the beginning of an amazing adventure of love and life!

Without a doubt this wedding spoke of the love and respect of family, for each other and the experience for all those involved.

A moment every Jewish parent of a Bride dreams of ~ escorting their daughter to the Chuppah to be joined as one with her husband.

Surrounded by family and loved ones this moment is timeless in all that is promises.

Moments as this are enduring to all involved as it is literally the moments that will be most cherished in a lifetime.
