I love the smaller, more intimate weddings. They’re so special.Read More
These two have been together for over 10 years. It was so wonderful celebrating their marriage after so long!Read More
Last month I photographed Ariel and Asher’s wedding at Congregation Kol Tikvah in Parkland, Fla.
I always think wedding are special. I cry at every single one of them. But this wedding in particular was very special to me for three reasons:
- I grew up attending Congregation Kol Tikvah…I was Bat Mitzvah’d there when I was 13! Though the congregation is no longer located in a storefront shopping plaza on Wiles Road and now has a permanent home in Parkland, and I no longer attend services regularly, I still felt like I was at home.
- Ariel is Rabbi Boxman’s oldest daughter. And Ariel is a rabbi, too. So I photographed a rabbi’s wedding. And that was cool.
- I love the whole Boxman family. I bonded with Ariel’s mom, Linda, and Ariel’s sister, Talia, extremely quickly…it’s rare that you meet someone and feel like you’ve known them your whole life. But I felt this way when I met Linda and Talia. And I’ve found I quite like the rest of the Boxman family!
Ariel and Asher had actually gotten married in Israel, where Asher’s family lives. But they wanted to have a ceremony and reception here as well for their friends and family who couldn’t make the trip.
The day was full of spiritualness, happiness and laughter, and I was so happy to be a part of it.Read More
