Laura + Josh Wedding | The Farmhouse at the Grand Colonial

November 20, 2017

Laura and Josh celebrated their traditional Jewish wedding at The Farmhouse at the Grand Colonial this fall.  From the beautifully decorated Chuppah and floral arrangements by Thistle Bee the Florist, to the ornate Ketubah, every detail was planned to the nines.  The wedding was the starting point to the next chapter of their story that actually began when they met on a service trip to Israel.  The two got to know each other and became part of a group of friends on the trip.  Such good friends in fact that they extended that trip by a week to explore the country.  As fate would have it, they ended up on the same flight back to the states and through sheer coincidence, ended up sitting next to each other for the 12 hour trip home!  The rest, as they say, is history!  We started the day with the first look photo session and bridal party photos at The Farmhouse.  What made the day unique was that the cocktail hour preceded the reception in this case.  As is custom to many Jewish weddings, this leaves time for the groom’s Tisch and the bride’s Badekin before the actual ceremony.  As you can see below, I think Josh’s father was probably more emotional than anyone else…especially during the Badekin!  After the ceremony, it was straight into the reception where the talented Around Town Entertainment band kept the dance floor packed starting with a 45 minute Hora.  Yes, you read that correctly….a FORTY-FIVE MINUTE HORA!  We always have a great time at weddings with our friends at The Farmhouse at the Grand Colonial and Laura and Josh’s was no exception!
