Abby & Jonathan: The Sephardic Temple Wedding


She circled him at the beginning of their ceremony, then he circled her.  And they never let go of one another, never once.  They couldn’t take their eyes off each other.  The love was absolutely palpable, you could feel it emanating from the two of them, from their friends and from their families.  I don’t think I’ve laughed more, or shed more tears at a wedding.  It was such a special day and I am so happy to have documented every moment of it.

Abby & Jonathan were married on Sunday at The Sephardic Temple in LA.  It was a day that really focused on the two of them and the intense love they share with their families, who already seem so intertwined.    The stories shared were funny, sweet and an amazing view into their lives.  Each and every person I met overflowed with gratitude and admiration for each and every other family member.  It was so lovely!

Abby & Jonathan – I am so thrilled for the two of you!   You two are so intentional, so special, and I feel honored to know you.  This next adventure will be incredible for you both and I wish you nothing but the best.  Mazel Tov!
