We are really excited to share a few of Shosh and Jon’s wedding images. They had an amazing wedding. It was filled with love, friendship, tradition, warmth and fun. We had a blast getting to know their family and friends. I loved all of the Jewish elements; I felt right at home.
Shosh and Jon are so clearly completely and totally in love. Jon was adorable; he really couldn’t keep his eyes off Shosh. And Shosh exudes a warmth and caring for everyone. On her wedding day she had an extra aura of joy around her and she couldn’t stop smiling. They were such a pleasure to photograph.
We started the day at Shosh’s home in San Jose. We captured a few photos of everyone as they prepared for the day. And some of the dress before she put it on.
Shosh was surrounded by her family and closest friends. There were all amazingly calm. Until the two and a half minutes just before they left. Shosh’s mom Elise claimed that time to start the celebration. It turned into a bit of a party; there was singing and dancing to an Israeli song blasting on the stereo. Smiles were abundant as everyone ushered Shosh off to meet Jon.
Jon for his part was already at the reception site, the San Jose City Hall. He and his groomsmen were hanging out.
And one of Shosh with her sisters. They are such a fabulous trio.
And then it was time for their first meeting on their wedding day. We found a secluded spot and….
After seeing each other, the festivities really got underway. The men and women were segregated for the tish. Apparently, Jon told some pretty funny stories and his friends were there to "help." On the other side of the wall, the women were socializing and greeting Shosh.
Just before the bedeken….
The ceremony was held at the Fourth Street Summit Center. The decor was perfect. Shosh walked through this beautiful draping on her way to the chuppah (wedding canopy), which her mom made out of Shosh and Jon’s grandfathers’ tallitot.
This is immediately after the ceremony. Could they be any sweeter?
We look forward to sharing more soon so definitely check back.
