Melissa & Michael's Water Works Wedding

March 26, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

I've known Melissa for a very long time through family friends and JRA. Apperently, I've known Michael in college. While taking a photo at the wedding of his college fraturnity friends, it became clear that it was the same time I was there and my chapter helped formed his chapter and we used to hang with them very often, small world! We started the day in the bridal sweet at the Water Works, Philadelphia. It was a beautiful day and the sunlight we were getting in was amazing. Melissa's daughters were running around, fixing their makeup and helping getting the room ready. In the Jewish religion, women come to meet the bride and get a blessing before the ceremony happens. While this is happening, the men are praying and signing the Kittubah (marraige agreement). This is a very special and important time for both the bride and groom and their guests. Once this time period is over, the ceremony begins. It was a beautiful ceremony with so many friends and family helping with different parts of the ceremony.

After the ceremony ended, I took the Bride, Groom, their children, and immeditate family out to the Gazebo/Pier overlooking Boat House Row.  The sun was shining bright but the city looked amazing in the background. The time we spent with just Michael, Melissa their kids was so much fun and the walk back was so full of laughter and joy.

Back at the reception, the party began and was a huge simcha! The energy was amazing and the live music fanatic. So amazing to see how much fun everyone was having dancing for hours! Near the end of the party, Michael had Melissa sit in the middle of the dance floor and sing to her. It was a beautiful moment and amazing that Michael put himself out here to do in front of everyone.  The wedding ended with a fantastic coffee and dessert bar. This party was a beautiful simcha from start to finish and I wish Melissa, Michael and their entire family Mazel tov! 01_BG3_696601_BG3_6966 02_DSC_295202_DSC_2952 03_BG3_697403_BG3_6974 04_BG3_698404_BG3_6984 05_BG3_699105_BG3_6991 06_BWP_894806_BWP_8948 07_BWP_895807_BWP_8958 07_BWP_896107_BWP_8961 08_BWP_897408_BWP_8974 09_BG3_700709_BG3_7007 10_BG3_690010_BG3_6900 11_BG3_692111_BG3_6921 12_BG3_694912_BG3_6949 13_BG3_695713_BG3_6957 14_BG3_703214_BG3_7032 15_BG3_705215_BG3_7052 16_BG3_707316_BG3_7073 17_BG3_708017_BG3_7080 18_BG3_711818_BG3_7118 19_BG3_716219_BG3_7162 20_BG3_716520_BG3_7165 21_BG3_717221_BG3_7172 22_BG3_720022_BG3_7200 23_BG3_721223_BG3_7212 24_BG3_724824_BG3_7248 25_BG3_726225_BG3_7262 26_BG3_733426_BG3_7334 27_BG3_733727_BG3_7337 28_BWP_898828_BWP_8988 29_BWP_899929_BWP_8999 30_BWP_902330_BWP_9023 31_BG3_735431_BG3_7354 32_BG3_736632_BG3_7366 33_BG3_737133_BG3_7371 34_BG3_737934_BG3_7379 35_BG3_738235_BG3_7382 36_BWP_897636_BWP_8976 37_BWP_8998 (2)37_BWP_8998 (2) 38_DSC_300138_DSC_3001 39_BG3_742039_BG3_7420 40_DSC_302340_DSC_3023 41_BG3_744041_BG3_7440 42_DSC_303942_DSC_3039 43_BG3_747343_BG3_7473 44_BWP_9303 (2)44_BWP_9303 (2) 45_DSC_312945_DSC_3129 46_BG3_761646_BG3_7616 47_BG3_764747_BG3_7647 48_BG3_765448_BG3_7654 49_BG3_765749_BG3_7657 50_BG3_767250_BG3_7672 51_BG3_767951_BG3_7679 52_BG3_786652_BG3_7866 53_BG3_788253_BG3_7882 54_BG3_789954_BG3_7899 55_BG3_792855_BG3_7928 56_BG3_794056_BG3_7940 57_DSC_325757_DSC_3257 58_DSC_330158_DSC_3301 59_DSC_332659_DSC_3326 60_DSC_333360_DSC_3333 61_DSC_337261_DSC_3372 62_BG3_739662_BG3_7396 63_BG3_740563_BG3_7405 64_BG3_755964_BG3_7559 65_BWP_9384 (2)65_BWP_9384 (2) 66_BWP_9397 (2)66_BWP_9397 (2) 67_BWP_9406 (2)67_BWP_9406 (2) 68_DSC_390568_DSC_3905 69_BWP_939669_BWP_9396 70_DSC_349670_DSC_3496 71_DSC_349971_DSC_3499 72_BWP_944972_BWP_9449 73_DSC_365773_DSC_3657 74_DSC_370974_DSC_3709 75_BWP_9596 (2)75_BWP_9596 (2) 76_DSC_383776_DSC_3837 77_DSC_394677_DSC_3946 78_DSC_384978_DSC_3849 79_DSC_400379_DSC_4003
