Ceremony Photos

So, let's meander through the rest of the ceremony, shall we?

The rabbi and the couple partake of the cup (wine).

Then the seven blessings are read. In this case, the rabbi read the first two and last two. I read the third in both Hebrew and English. Cuppa and Puff's Mom read the fourth and fifth blessings respectively.

Although the couple does not formally exchange vows, they do exchange rings.

Of course, they kiss after the ring exchange.

Then they each broke a wine glass.

Following the Jewish tradition, right after the ceremony the couple went off together for about ten or fifteen minutes. The second picture is an attempt to be arty. I know; I should leave it to the artists. You may have to view it large to get the effect.

Just when I think we had the "best weddings ever" cornered for our family, you have to come along and make me nervous. Pink and green haven't made me so happy since 1958.
