Lush Cream and Green Hydrangea Chuppah

With the help of Rabbi Cohen, a close family friend, Danielle and Patrick wrote their own ceremony, in which they incorporated Jewish traditions, as well as sentimental elements that allowed the pair to include their close family members. “To help guests participate, our wedding program included brief explanations of the traditions, such as the ketubah, the chuppah and the breaking of the glass,” Danielle says. “A special touch was using my paternal grandfather’s tallit, which he used during his bar mitzvah in the 1930s.” Danielle and Patrick exchanged vows under a canopy of lush white, cream and green hydrangeas, and Patrick’s godfather recited a favorite poem.
