What! No Chuppah?!

What! No chuppah?!

Did you (or will you) get married this week? We are making history this week! If you are one of the hundreds of LGBT couples who tied the knot this week, or are planning to, I want to wish you a Mazel Tov! But don’t stop there – if you want a Jewish wedding, call me. Consider being married under a chuppah.

Many are now in the throes of planning weddings. Rabbis have been performing LGBT weddings all along. But some friends have told me that they aren’t havng a religious wedding until it’s legal. Well, it’s legal. So time to think rings, flowers, friends, and food. Will it be outside, in a synagogue, in a hall, in your parents’ back yard?

What elements do you want to include? Jewish wedding elements include:

The Seven Blessings
Breaking the glass
Circling your partner
Ketubah (wedding contract)
Exchange of rings
Going to the mikvah

Want to discuss weddings, officiants, where to rent a chuppah and what constitutes a mikvah? Give me a call. I love wedding plans!
