English Garden Themed Wedding!

Our Director of Design and Décor & Associate Wedding Planner, Katy Simovski, will be directing an English Garden themed wedding this Sunday, May 29th.  The wedding ceremony and reception will be held inside at the Westin Pittsburgh.  The ceremony and reception will follow Jewish traditions.

Katy gave me details on the wedding design and décor and the Jewish wedding traditions that will take place at this Sunday’s wedding:

This English Garden themed wedding can also be described as an elegant romance.  The color scheme is pale pinks, greens and ivory.  Jim Hjelm designed the bridesmaid dresses.  The dresses are, a-line tea length, sage with a cashmere underlay.  The florist will bring the outside in, and the romantic colors will be highlighted in their linens, centerpieces, and soft lighting.  The bride and groom will be married under the traditional chuppa (pronounced as hoo pa) found at every Jewish wedding.  Prior to the wedding, they will sign the marriage document known as the Ketubah, which will be read underneath the chuppa.  They will end the ceremony with the breaking of the glass, and escape to a private room for about 10 minutes to celebrate the Yichud, a short time for the Bride and Groom to reflect on their marriage.  In older days, this was the time when the marriage was consummated.  Jewish weddings are normally held on Sundays instead of Saturdays since Saturdays are holy to the religion.

Good luck to Katy and her team in directing and beautifying the wedding on Sunday!
