Interfaith Ceremony at Willowdale Estate Conservatory

Coming from different religious backgrounds, Edith and Zachary decided to write their own ceremony, including elements from both their Catholic and Jewish faiths. “We combine both our traditions and had our ceremony co-officiated by my parish priest and a rabbi,” says Edith. “We wrote our own ceremony using traditional Catholic vows and bible readings, along with the Jewish seven wedding blessings and exchange of rings.” The pair stood under a birch chuppah draped in eucalyptus, pussy willows and Zachary’s father’s, grandfather’s and great-grandfather’s tallits and the final blessing was said by the priest and rabbi together, alternating between English and Hebrew.
