A Jewish Wedding in Philly is a wonderful event that will be remembered by all who attend for years to come. The Jewish Wedding in Philly of Daniella and Sam took place just outside of the city on August 19, 2010. The wedding was held at the home of Daniella’s father. The day consisted of a beautiful outdoor Orthodox Jewish marriage ceremony and a lively wedding reception that took place beneath a large event tent. This photograph from the bride and groom’s ceremony shows the groom, Sam, walking down the aisle with his mother and father. Sam wear a classic black tuxedo, with a white tie and vest, and a bright smile on his face. On either side of him, Sam’s parents proudly walk. In keeping with Jewish custom, Sam’s father walks on his right and his mother on his left. The groom’s parents each hold a candle, with a flame that dances inside of an elegant hurricane glass candle holder. The candles, and others carried by the bridal party, were all lit from one flame, signifying the unity that flows throughout the wedding day. These two candles pictured, are symbolic of the groom’s mother and father lighting his way in joy, as he proceeds toward the chuppah. Once he reaches the chuppah, or wedding canopy, Sam will wait there to receive his bride. The traditions and rituals of an Orthodox Jewish wedding ceremony make the occasion even more special, as every aspect of the event has meaning and is intended to support and celebrate the bride and groom as they enter into the union of marriage.
