Lauren and Hasan were married at reBar in Brooklyn in early May. For their ceremony, they chose one of my favorite rituals, The Circle of Love, and their friends and family were encouraged to place a tealight at the front, under their chuppah, to form a circle of love and support the couple would be married in. It went perfectly with their amazing chuppah and decor of the venue. It’s hard to believe, but these are LED tealights! They flickered and everything, and, even though I had suggested to the couple to go with LED tealights instead of real candles, for safety issues, I totally thought they were real when I walked in!
There wasn’t a dry eye in the house (Hasan included!) as the bride and groom exchanged their heartfelt and personal vows. Their ceremony was personal, lighthearted, and romantic. Lauren and Hasan met during college, and have been through a lot in their time together, and there were a lot of fun anecdotes to share that really captured their relationship. We also got a few mentions of their labradoodle Zooey in there too!
They were married under a chuppah, the Jewish marriage canopy, that represents the home that the couple is creating together. The sides are left open, to invite in their family and friends love. And Hasan broke a glass at the end, another Jewish tradition.
Lauren said: “Patient, professional, and comforting. Jessie did an incredible job with our ceremony. From our initial meeting, we knew we were in the perfect hands. She is extremely organized and really knows her craft. She responds to any questions or concerns extremely fast. Everyone at the wedding commented that our ceremony was beautiful and touching. Jessie helped make that happen!”
